      Will this be including any boxes of crunchy goodness? Round or letter shaped?

      Somehow Cathy, I doubt that. I mean really, you have three Sciroccos and are searching for a trike.

      Good morning, I can't see the trees at the back of the yard, and supposedly it is freezing on things. Ideal flying weather.
      In other news, the province is changing ETest rules. Waiting to see if my old kids are impacted.....(it'd be sweet if they'd drop my three 88s from the programme, not so sweet if the Roccs have to get tested again...)
      But today is what retirement is all about. I'll be heading out to bond with an old friend, she's Mars red and I do miss her.

      Well, I could do a grocery shopping adventure for you I guess. What I have already had a curly tail. And speaking of odd tails, that would be a "convertible trike". But I need to get off my backside and degrease some parts. It's 7 am and what have I got done so far today? I mean, seriously. Oh I did make coffee. THAT is critical.

      Only you. Only you. Although this is a lesson I am sure we could all benefit from. See, you're still teaching and you didn't even know it.

      I am off to an interview at another place. Job searching is tiring but I have been told it will be worth it in the end.

      ...um, Cathy? Not to tell you how to run your life or anything, but... uh, I know how much you've been looking forward to retirement, and enjoying it now that you're there. And I'm sure you're going to be rather determined to stay that way.


      So OK, that said; if you don't want to go back to work, well if they call needing you to be a substitute for a day or something like that... you just say "No" [ranging to "F*ck no and y'all can kiss my ___!!"].


      Burning the place down might be considered (by some) to be just a tiny little bit too extreme.


      Jus' sayin'.

      From what I heard on the news, they're only changing how new cars have to be before they need an e-test, so that you don't have to get one until your car is over 7 years old, I believe.

      I gathered that. And don't worry about it if you don't have time.

      You're retired. What do you have to get up for? As a friend said after he retired, sunrises were vastly overrated, and were much like sunsets in reverse.

      Thanks guys.

      I actually haven't discussed that yet, didn't want to put the cart before the horse, so to speak. But I ask and they say no, I guess I'll have to spend the summer looking for a job too.

      Cool news Chris! I bet you're glad about that! I spent the day in beautiful Midwestern. Carrots is getting an alternator swap, which seems to be all the rage up here in the GWN, and I'll post up pics of my pretty baking efforts once I load pics off my little camera. But now I'm pretty sure that I'm DOING IT WRONG. My alternator upgrade did not involve grinding in the wheelwells, or anywhere else for that matter. Here's a picture of how Drew goes about it:



      More of the same mayhem tomorrow I expect.
