playing around.....

Jury Duty

Poor Chris. He was selected to be on a panel for a rape trial. As much as he likes the Justice system (that is a dig) he really does enjoy Criminal Law. But I think he would much rather be in his "big truck" on a tow...hee hee. On the plus side, I get to meet him for lunch today so I think it works out just fine......

48 years ago today

48 Years Ago Today
Beloved sitcom I Love Lucy airs its last episode. The show, created by Lucille Ball and her husband Desi Arnaz, ran for 10 years. Ball, a former Hollywood starlet and radio actress, had insisted that Arnaz be cast as her husband on I Love Lucy despite the fact that network executives insisted no one would believe a white American actress would be married to a Cuban bandleader. Desi and Lucy filmed a pilot before a live audience to convince network executives that audiences responded well to their act, and CBS agreed to cast Desi for the show.




***I wonder if people thought Juan and I were like Lucy and Desi????? O.K. I need to get up off the floor from laughing so hard!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday, Mr. 10 yr. old!!!!!

He loves me......




Another crazy dream last night. I don't know what it is but ever since it has been getting colder outside, I have been having crazy dreams! I really liked this one so I think it is why I remembered it! John Mayer and I were dating, I had Christopher but Chris wasn't in the dream at all. That is ok, John was good with Christopher and he was buying me jewelry and romancing me...swoon....but, we were living in a college dorm and the bathroom was disgusting. What does this say about me?

Joke of the Day

Two old men had been best friends for years, and they both live to their early 90's, when one of them suddenly falls deathly ill.
His friend comes to visit him on his deathbed, and they're reminiscing about their long friendship, when the dying man's friend asks, "Listen, when you die, do me a favor. I want to know if there's baseball in heaven."
The dying man said, "We've been friends for years, this I'll do for you." And then he dies.

A couple days later, his surviving friend is sleeping when he hears his friend's voice. The voice says, "I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that there's baseball in heaven."
"What's the bad news?"
"You're pitching on Wednesday."

Joke of the Day

Finishing up our work at a trade show in San Diego, my co-worker Maureen and I decided to go sightseeing across the border in Tijuana, Mexico.
While there, we went shopping and bought a few pieces of clay kitchenware.
As we crossed back into the United States, a customs official asked if we had anything of value to report.
"Not really," Maureen replied, digging in her bag for the bean crock she had purchased. Everyone around us froze as she continued, "I only bought a little pot."

Long Labor Day weekend




Well, our summer has officially ended. Today will be spent filling up backpacks with back to school supplies (bought in a hurry last night, it always sneaks up on us!!) The Brazilians boarded the big plane last night and are on their way home. We went over Sunday to say goodbye and as usual, I choked up. I will miss those girls!!!




Yesterday, we had the Fooball Jamboree. It was held in North Adams this year and it went well. Sam got to be Quarterback and to my surprise he wasn't bad! When we got back home we went fishing on the boat for a little while and took Jackson out on his "Maiden Voyage". He was doing great up until we were docking the boat to get the car, he must have got nervous and peed on the boat. Oh well, what's a little urine between family!!!!!
