Saturday Morning Reflection #30

Good Morning everyone....

Here it is, another beautiful saturday.Seems as if summer is almost here. Lots of news from the past week.

First...there has been a new arrival at the house. Alex Cat. Josie Cat now has a new playmate. All seems to be well and and the cat chases are in full swing.

Second...My lawyer called. Guess what he has in his office. THE SIGNED TITLE TO MY TRUCK!!!!!!!I believe that will be enough written down about that.

Third...I worked part of a shift last night at Beech Fork....Levi, my friend, I certainly hope you enjoy the Bass tournament...and don't take your Gameboy.

Fourth...Today there will be a cookout at the house. Kenny brought down some nice NY Strips and I am going to grill them. Might even be convinced to drink a beer or two.

I suppose I should look back over the past month and reflect some on how my life has moved along. The waxing and waning of the moon through its cycles parallels my life. The changes that I have encountered can even be likened to the ebbing and flowing of ocean tides. Several times I have mentioned that you must have lows in order to know when you are high. There must be extremes so that you can find the middle. I have discovered that my life is average...and I like it. The house is alive with life. Thanks to ****** the counters are clean and the clothes are washed. Peace and tranquility rule my world.

Here you go, Ginger...

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a new litter of kittens.

On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, "There were two boy kittens and two girl kittens."

"How did you know that?" his mother asked.

"Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the bottom."

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.

Saturday Morning Reflection #29

Good Morning Everyone... is it really sunshining and warm on a Saturday? Even I feel energized today. I think there might be some vehicles getting cleaned (inside AND out)today.

I suppose I will start with the subject of work today.....enough said.

The house is filled with kids and a cat. Miss Josie Cat is so full of energy she makes me tired. The debate about getting her a companion has been going on. I think it will not be very long until a second cat is added to the household. Brings back a lot of memories.

I know that at the end of the last fishing season I said I wasn't going back to Port Clinton. I am not sure what it is, but, I seem to be drawn there. I am planning a trip back. I am sure that Jackie and I will have a blast.

Speaking of trips...looks like a funfilled 3 or 4 days in Hilton Head,SC coming up for me. Stayed tuned for the details.Also,if anyone has any suggestions about what to do just let me know...since I have never been there.

Here is an update for those of you following the post divorce proceedings. The ex-wife has not been to her lawyer's to sign the title to my truck yet. I can't say it's her fault as the lawyer didn't say they had gotten in contact with her to have her come in and sign. When the title is signed there will only be one item left between us and...she appears to be following the court order on that.

Dinner tonight will be BBQ'd chicken...on the GRILL. Tis the season. Might even be a beer involved in this grillin' thing.

Here you go , Ginger...and careful not to bust a stitch...

A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife's stomach with indelible ink.

The couple was curious about what the stamp was for, so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters, the stamp said, "When you can read this without a needing a magnifying glass, come back and see me."

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.

Saturday Morning Reflection #28

Good Morning Everyone...

My first thought this morning is about fishing (think of that). I am sure that the State Hatcheries are stocking trout everywhere. I might have to go and drown some Powerbait. Nothing like some good fresh trout.

Josie cat is busy this morning playing on her personal microwave know, the one where I am allowed to put the microwave on top and she uses the bottom shelf as storage for her catnip mice and play area. She is hard at it this morning.

Last night's dinner was GRILLED chicken. Thank God it is grilling season again. I even made some homemade BBQ sauce. Yummy.

Now, for those of you following the DIVORCE saga (Epic? or maybe even miniseries?)...The title to my truck has been taken to her lawyers office to await a signature from her. I hope that she doesn't delay so that I can get the new title and registration. This will, of course, bring closure to another chapter of the divorce. I hope that the next time I mention this it will be to say that this item has been completed.

There has been an experiment going on at my house. I have been trying to see how many items one refridgerator magnet can hold is time for me to get some more magnets.

The past week has been filled with early to bed and early to rise. Personally, I am just thrilled with the way life goes. I am, afterall, on the correct side of the ground. The food I eat is good and the company I choose to keep is wonderful. Work is even going well. My new attitude is not one where I wait for the next "bad thing" but one where I look forward to more good and fun. I also know that in order to know when you have it good you have to experience the opposite of that. I will strive to enjoy the entire spectrum.

Here you go, Ginger...

After learning the Lamaze method of natural childbirth, I was admitted to the delivery room with my wife.

It seemed like an eternity before the doctor finally announced, "I've got the head now; just a few more minutes."

"Is it a girl or boy?" I asked excitedly.

The doctor replied, "I don't know. It's hard to tell by the ears."

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.

Saturday Morning Reflection#27

Good Morning Everyone...

This mornings blog is brought you from the kitchen table, where the sunshine is streaming thru the sliding back glass door, which leads to the back deck, where we will soon be grilling on the .....You get the idea, I'm sure.

The work week was very interesting. Training on the new system was completed and at close of business the computer people shut it down so it could not be used. The National Union has filed a demand to bargain and issued a cease and desist on this item. I am not sure when we get to use the new system. Did I mention that this will extend the amount of overtime we are working. I am starting to wear down.

The sun is shining. The cat is playing. Spring is in the air. I might have to start cleaning the fishing gear. Is it time for that yet?

There are several of you that know my friend Kenny. This weekend is his 66th birthday. He is at his mothers house celebrating. Everyone should try and say something.

This morning,my house is filled with 14 y/o girls. I thought there was 20ish, but was informed that I had miscounted. There was only three. Where did all of the ice cream go?

Here you go, Ginger...

One night a fellow drove his secretary home after she had imbibed a little too much at an office reception. Although this was an innocent gesture, he decided not to mention it to his wife, who tended to get jealous easily.

The next night the man and his wife were driving to a res- taurant. Suddenly he looked down and spotted a high-heel shoe half hidden under the passenger seat. Not wanting to be conspicuous, he waited until his wife was looking out her window before he scooped up the shoe and tossed it out of the car.

With a sigh of relief, he pulled into the restaurant parking lot. That's when he noticed his wife squirming around in her seat. "Honey," she asked, "have you seen my other shoe?"

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.
