Things & Stuff

Long break. I've been trying to get myself motivated to write and it hasn't worked too well.
So. Here's some of what's been going on.
Mid-term elections. Obama goes on TV and says that the Democrats received a "shellacking" because he didn't do a good enough job explaining his policies.
No, Mr. President - it was because you articulated them all too well.
Brin's visit went pretty well. Sadly, she came down with some allergy issues and just plain yecch, so it wasn't as active a visit as it has been in the past - we tended to stay here and keep the kittehs company.
We'll see what happens during the next visit, which is scheduled for February.
It's gotten cold here at Chez Too Old. I've taken to sleeping almost fully clothed, all the way down to wearing my slippers to bed.
The kittehs have tried to help, but they don't sleep on my feet.
The neighborhood taggers went at it again. They covered a good deal of the neighborhood with their bullshit - right down to the brand new playground equipment that was installed last month. The kids haven't even had a chance to play on it yet, and these scumbags just can't leave it alone.
Well, city employees were out today with paint rollers, covering everything they could find. I leaned out my window and thanked them.
Jason is out of town this week, but he's already made out the schedule for Thanksgiving week. I told him I could work the day after, but I needed the entire Thanksgiving day off. So that's what I got.
And now I just got a call asking me to come in on my day off.
The wife of one of the band's long-time friends passed away last week. We could always count on Jerry and Sudie to cheer us on from the sidelines.
Sudie suffered from cancer. It started in her lungs and, despite surgery, finally took her.
Love and prayers to Jerry. We miss her, too.
Here's another piece of my youth - I remember seeing this long long ago when I was a child.
Okay, I have work to get ready for.
Be seeing you.
