I hope y'all have a great day!
That is how it is where I work.

He has been pretty busy the last few weeks with the playoffs and preparing for the Super Bowl! Okay no more Super Bowl talk from me. I know I am in the minority of people that like the Ravens.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday and Happy Pines Day!!!!
You earned the right to brag, enjoy the championship! I did when the Bruins won the cup a couple of years ago.

We sure are missing our grandsons! They are in school and involved in after school programs so we see them briefly here and there. We will see a lot of them this summer though!
That is so sweet.

Good morning,

Still keeping an eye on the weather for Friday, it is still looking like it could be pretty nasty around here. They have already issued a winter storm watch to start late tomorrow night. I am just resting up before work, with the storm coming it will be busy. Not much more going on,just watching Ancient Aliens, aliens freak me out, I don't know why I watch these things. The trailer for Dark Skies was on TV the other night, they showed an alien and I covered my eyes. My wife laughed at me, I guess I looked ridiculous. Heading to work soon.

Have a good day.

I really wouldn't get one though because with the way my dogs are it would freak them out to ride in it but I am sure some dogs would love it!!! I do plan to get a basket just to hold items in it. We also plan to sometime take the bikes to the lake so the basket can hold a picnic lunch in it. Ride around, stop for a light lunch and continue riding. Can't wait!!!
I think Harlowe would be the same..she doesn't like to be contained! =)

My parents have a 4.5 pound Yorkie named Jazzie, and they've taken her on bike rides ever since she was little! She's the only pup I know that enjoys being in a basket.

Your plans for picnics @ the lake sound amazing!!

I was so freaked out by "Signs". Every time I see a corn field, I think of that movie!! And we have some adjacent to our neighborhood!

I mentioned last week that I was reading two books: Hoda and Ten Years Later by Hoda Kotb, a news correspondent. In Hoda, the author details her "perfectly comfortable" imperfections, and says she is "most at home when things are somewhat flawed." She then goes on to describe the contents of her purse on one particular day: "loose dollar bills, jam-packed wallet, a winter hat, a hardback novel, a thank-you card with a dog on it, Advil, one glove, a travel zip bag with 3-ounce bottles, mints, my checkbook, cough suppressant pills, a bottle of perfume, deodorant, contact lenses, a comb, an apple, and a Christmas ornament...Yeah. That's my world." Later she adds that "one woman's kitchen is another person's crime scene." When I read about the Christmas ornament, I felt as if Hoda were one of us!!! Just had to share!

Glad your wife loved the shelf. Enjoy your snow!

This weekend will probably when that happens since it looks like we have a major snowstorm coming one model saying we will be getting 1-3 inches and the European model saying we will be getting 12+ inches, of course the European has been the more accurate of the two, so I am glad I have the weekend off.

Have a good night everyone.

I lost it on the scene with the alien on the roof in that one.
