Just saw the table posted yesterday, very nice job!
A special thank you and measure of gratitude for those many years ago who put themselves aside for the greater good of all of us, and for the families who didn't get their loved one back home, for all for what they gave.
Raining here, supposed to for four days straight, heavy storms at times. It missed my house the other night but really tore up stuff at a friends here in town I work at (13 miles difference).
Ya'll behave

Beautiful day here again, wish I was home in the pool. By the time the weekend gets here there'll be rain in the pool and me in the house, unfortunately. Have a few things to work on at the office, but still slow, making the day drag by. Hope everyone has a good afternoon.

I keep telling my friends I'd like to move to Cali. Those I know there tell me "no, don't". One bunch I know just moved from there to Ohio. They miss the climate and not much else, they said. Very nice here but rain due for the weekend. Figures. We took our Missouri trip to see friends this past weekend and it was supposed to rain here but was nice. Now that we're home and want to be in the pool, we won't be able to. Sleep instead I guess. While there we hit some big flea markets, all day long on Saturday. Sunday we opted to fix a buckling sidewalk for them and another crumbling busted section. The 2nd section was an after thought so 24 bags of quickrete later - she has a safer sidewalk to go across. Her with horrible rheumatoid and fibro, etc, and he's now 67 and has enough to keep him busy, didn't hurt us to do something nice for them for putting us up the weekend.
She did keep sending photos to her son up the road who said "wouldn't it be nice to have a son that would do that for you?" They had a laugh, he's a doctor there and busy as hell and his wife works too and they also have 3 growing boys to chase. She cooked daily and even made me a bday cake (red velvet from a very old recipe I gave her a while back).
Back to the daily grind now, except it's slow at the office so it'll be a long day.

Whoever ordered the rain, I've got my share, someone else can have it now, thanks. I needed some for the yard and plants but I'm past my limit.
Hoping for a quiet day at the job today, but do need to run across town to measure a camper. He wants me to come after work (he's a friend) but Arron and I are planning to go out to dinner after work for my bday so I'm not stomping around in his chat muddy parking lot. It's gonna be a $50 job so not really worth my time. Hate to be that way but the dude is gonna want half a camper's worth of graphics that will end up costing us way more time and trouble to do that it's worth.
Friday's coming, carry on!

had one, sold when cleaned out shop, sorry
you are too far from me but the guy that was at the end of the road from where I used to live most likely has what you need: Adair Corvette, Jonesboro, AR. He bought all our stuff. He does have an ebay store or you can call him direct.
Accomplishment for today: car assessed, tags renewed, never left my chair

Arron brought me home 20 bags of mulch, not impressed. He finished putting down the last bag and proclaimed proudly "happy birthday" to which he was given the bird in my gesture of appreciation.
Slow day at the office, so managed to get my property assessed, next to get the tags renewed online or I guess I can just come back to town early Friday morning.
We're headed to Missouri to see our friends that afternoon. They managed to miss the damage from the Jeff City tornado but do have one road closed near them so we will take an alternate route if it isn't open. Glad they're allright but see so many reports and photos of others who aren't. Prayers for everyone affected

Good afternoon, back to work for me, back to R&R for some of the rest of you. Went back through and read some of your things from yesterday - awesome honorings. I pretty much tried to stay off the computer except for some phone FB-ing over the weekend and paid a bill or two and that was it.
Visited the one in the nursing home as usual, and Arron's brother has decided to leave his wife (probably a good thing) and is now a resident at our house (probably not a good thing) which also happened over the holidays so in lieu of us relaxing as we'd planned, we've been upended of sorts. We'll make due.
Seeing some bad reports coming in from the river flooding and the Jeff City tornado was 15 miles from friends of ours, they're okay thankfully although the immediate area around them didn't fare as nicely. Prayers for all of those who are misplaced.
Try to have a good afternoon y'all

I mentioned in a previous thread that I'd never used a RF tire. I do, however keep a small air compressor with me in the storage compartment, but have only done that recently. Typically, you don't drive your Corvette in areas where the road is shoddy to begin with, although accidents and unexpected things do occur. With RF tires, these 'unexpected things' will also blow a RF tire as well though quite often. In 25 years of having a Corvette, maybe I'm just lucky? Or ? Either way, you evaluate the tire based on if it's "xl" or "sl" meaning standard load and if it further states 'reinforced" which is equivalent to "xl", the grip, temp, wear, note your tread pattern for your driving conditions - do you do more interstate driving? city? cornering? etc. summer mainly? rainy weather mainly? etc. For me, it's Arkansas, so if it's too bad the BF takes me where I need to be in the truck, but mostly I'm in weather at or above freezing here. We do get our share of rain so I need to have water shedding tread and good grip as I have mixed interstate and spirited hilly back road driving. Those seemed to fit the bill nicely and a good price point as well. They're not my stand by faves I'd been using but I'm searching for the replacements to the Kumho Ecsta Supra SPT I used to use. I have Nitto Invos now and am not completely happy.

I have a back bedroom so full of junk I need to sell it's insane. Corvette leather jackets, chrome grille for a '97 Chevy still in the box, just a couple of things that come to mind, the room is full of crap. Then there's boxes in the shop he needs to go through. Makes my head hurt thinking about it.
We got more rain last night to add to the quick heavy shower from yesterday, hope it's done for a while. I'm okay with a quick shower every other day but million mile an hour winds and crap or floods I'm done with. Can't have anything outside seems.
Slow day at work so I jacked with this printer some, having trouble getting it to "see" the edges of paper. It sucks it in and spits it out. Otherwise, it seems to want to work. Forum searches tell me I'm not the only one with the issue.
Little rock trip tomorrow to see the nose surgeon one last time, hope all goes well there. Still feel like something blocking right side a bit.
Have been looking over some tires - found these -

sunny here today then overcast then I thought I heard rain, then sunny again, I'm sleepy need to run errands, just might go home and go to bed.
My give a hoot for the day is gone.
Picked up an HP Designjet 130 printer recently, got that all cleaned out and ink was uber cheap $23 for ALL cartidges, printer wants to work but the paper feed issue is driving me crazy. Shows online it's a $1400 printer I got it for $25 so figure it's worth messing with. What I can find in forums seems to be a paper alignment sensor and between me and the guys moving it around, might need some adjustment.
Something to work on tomorrow or the next day if time allows.

Floating peanuts. Gives me a bad image in my head. And it has nothing to do with soda or whiskey. I'll leave that right there.
Beautiful day today, had a nice weekend, we tried to keep to ourselves and man being man put a dent in it for the most part. Worked Friday night when we normally make it a point NOT to do side jobs on that night so we can have a night to ourselves. Didn't get home from said side job till 10 causing us to miss the sunset we planned to go see as well as dinner out and a fire by the pool when we got home. Plus I went from mad to worried as he wouldn't answer my messages all night and I knew he was out on a motorcycle. He ended up planning to just run a coode on something and come home and ended up having to halfway rewire a truck. Phone nowhere near him. Then he sleeps half the next day. Fine way to 'plan a weekend with me'. Oh well, should be used to that by now, right? Got a good rain over the weekend and back to regularly scheduled hot and summer. Little Rock trip Thursday and staying home for the holiday. Would like to go camping at the lake, but then that's where everyone else will be. So, no. Have a good day y'all

Good afternoon - happy birthday to your RR Matt! Cherish them now!
They grow up too quickly.
Beautiful day here, got some house chores done then planned the afternoon to enjoy the pool finally.
That's our plan for tomorrow as well, not leaving the house.
Looking at a road trip possibly for next weekend or maybe the weekend after that. My bday falls on the holiday weekend so there's a freebie day off for both of us so that helps out, that might be the plan. Considering a visit up to the body shop couple thats our friends who retired and moved to Tebbetts, MO , haven't seen them in almost a year. Might visit some wineries and a few junk stores, help him out on a few things, etc. Not got all that nailed down yet.
Ya'll have a good evenin

John, how are you liking the InDesign CC?
I'm on the CC for my other programs, but for my ID I still use the old one, as thus far I am not having a good time with the CC in use of Photoshop and Illustrator. I've developed new cuss words as of late.
I do book layouts for the paper I used to work at and have found I'd rather stick to the old reliable when pressed for a deadline but I know I need to convert sooner or later. Thoughts?
Beautiful day here, would rather be home, but there's always tomorrow. We had planned to do the Mississippi Antique Trail it's 500 miles starting there but I didn't really pay attention to WHERE. Turns out it's Hwy 11 & 80 from Meridian to Bristol VA. Sounds like fun except for me, that would mean 5.5 hours to Meridian, then 8+ hours of just the trail alone if I didn't stop, then somewhere I'd have to sleep. Then another 9hrs to get home. All in 2 days. That's a bit much.
Now we're looking for something else to do. And, my bday is coming up and I want to go to the beach, unfortunately, that's also a holiday and the beach is FUUUULLLL on that weekend. I have the all-clear from Medicaid this year for the yearly review so I want to GTFO of here.

good afternoon -
Tommy from yesterday - yes I usually shop Tirerack, sometimes Discount tire - who just put a store in here BTW. My local guy will often match their prices or not miss it by much. The rear sizes make finding a set difficult.
On the shocks Marcus, do you not have to use those magnetic things?
Have a couple of wraps working today, one is easy pleasin' the other is being a PITA.
And, just went to use our "employee" bathroom which is now public and there's half of some chick's (or dude's?) weave all over the sink. I'm not ready to clean that up. The search is on for some gloves, I'm not about to touch that. People often trash our bathroom here. I know folks bringing us cash for tint over there is what business is for but the bathroom is on MY side and this side is for our vehicle wrap people who spend way more. I hate to say it but on average those people coming in here for tint are ghetto quality folks who have kids they dont' watch and people trash the place, bring in food and leave wrappers everywhere. It's not uncommon for me to go to the bathroom and find where some man has left the seat up, pissed all over it and the floor and there's toilet paper in the floor by the commode when the trash can is just 5 feet away. People suck.
On a good note, 2.5 hours and I'm on my way home to clean my own bathroom. Happy Tuesday!

I've never ever used a run flat. You'd think after 25 years worth of 4 Vettes I'd have at least tried them at some point. Just never have.
I'm clueless about those, honestly, but do understand they have a much harsher ride and to offset the manufacturers use softer rubber compounds thereby reducing the longevity of the tire overall. Kinda kick in the kods when they cost so much to start with.
On the other hand, our tire treads are pretty meaty to start with on their own and chances are, we aren't driving them in shady places to put them at risk although accidents do happen. And, according to JD Power and associates, those with run flats, are nearly twice as likely to have to replace them after flats as they often cannot be repaired. And you must replace them in pairs. (which most of the time we do anyhow).
Contintental and Perelli offer self sealing tires, which do interest me. I haven't explored their size offerings however.

Tommy you are correct in that it seems like our moms should still be there to answer the phone. Mine's been gone 10 years and I pass her house once in a while and it don't look much different. I've seen it for sale once, and the inside has been updated some but still looks much the same. Just like I could still be sitting there on the porch with her.
On the tires - I've never been a fan of run flats, and here I drive mine all year and don't swap out winter tires for summer ones. I have the Nitto Invos now and love them except for the rain issues. I previously used Kumho Ecsta Supra SPTs on my other Vettes. I used Bridgestone, Michelins, Perelli, Goodyear, all those 'fancy' ones and kept coming back to the same old Kumhos that everyone made fun of me for. Then I started to see all those people start using them as well. Problem is, they don't offer a complete set for this car. The Goodyear and Firestone as well as Bridgestone I've used I didn't like. Lackluster grip, road noise, not good in rain, or just flat out didn't last well for the money they cost. I want to pay for a good tire not a good name.
I also have an issue with burning up a rear set myself lol

Morning everyone -
Still on the no sleep thing after getting home from the adventure of the week, then nursing home, mother's day, etc. Bill I'm very sorry to hear about your son, and will keep you guys in my prayers. I can't imagine.
Sun finally came out here today. Was gloomy yesterday morning, then was sunny, we made a fire, tried to have some quiet time, then it rained, fire would not go out. I guess Arron build one hot fire. Dumped three buckets on it and it still was trying to stay lit. Working today as a make up day, but it's beautiful outside so I'd rather be home. Supposed to be nice all week and the weatherman assures us our rainy woes are over for a time. We're celebrating.
I recall on the shocks, I used to use the Billsteins also, and found another company that made some nearly identical. Got the same wear and ride from them for a ton less cash. That was on the '96 though so don't off hand recall what they were but I did like them . Reminds me I have to do some tire shopping soon. Not looking forward to that. What I'm finding in the offerings as an all-four match for my GS so far I'm not real thrilled about

I read the crazy lady story just now. OMG. No way I'd have had the patience for that.
Went to a banquet Saturday night for Arron to get his free dinner and gift card from GM for being one of the top 20 techs in his region, then while I was there my friend texted and asked if I wanted to go to the beach. Like righ then. I was like WTH? So, soon as we were out and home, tossed some junk in a sac and we left out at 3am, no sleep. Came back Wednesday at midnight. I'm wore slap out, but Navarre was nice and beautiful and much needed. Free room and board was the bonus and reason for the go. Hope everyone around here had a good week, sorry I've not went back to read what all I've missed - taking a little break for the moment from work.
Happy Mother's Day to all your wives, mothers and daughters with kids.
Storms due in here we're told, but then again, this is Arkansas, might snow later.
Oh and that Pewter '02 Vert I had before this current GS - I totaled and hoped it went far away so I'd not miss it - well, went to eat at a restaurant on the beach and there the danged thing was. I could not freaking believe it. Dude bought it off Copart, lives in Texas. Turns out it ended up having a cracked block, he replaced that then next motor dropped a valve but all is good now. Told him I'd make him a helluva deal on ALL the original stereo that came out of it. He asked how it ended up totaled and I showed him my photos. He never even repainted the back end as he was afraid he'd mess up the decal I put on myself in my driveway. Told him I had an extra at home, I'll mail it to him. He asked for my phone number, I never got his but gave him my cell. Really nice dude. It still sounded great when it left just like I remembered.

Happy FriYAY.
Taking a day at home for myself. Doing nothing except made lunch when bf came home, had ahi tuna with baked potato and peas. For now, its' quiet here, has been all day sans a few birds singing. The grand birds (cardinal's babies) are peeping a little I can hear them now and then. Remembered I have a selfie stick so I captured a photo of the nest, appears to be three in there. Daddyo woke me up hollering and wearing out the fence this morning over something, momma came out, they both sat the nest off and on. Not sure what riled them up but they woke me up with it.
Been a hectic week at the office and nursing home stress too. Have 20 pages of notes thus far and did meet with the ombudsman. he was disinterested in my notes although we did discuss some of the issues. I feel disheartened from the meeting, although he did tell me to call state. I know that's useless and they usually get warned before the visit, although it's supposed to be an impromptu one with ombudsman as arbitrator for me. I did however call the atty in Little Rock that my local atty gave me the number for. He had me email him the info. We'll see what develops from that.
Have a good day y'all. I hear my hammock calling along with the birds -

Too bad they don't give us more northern peeps deals to entice us to buy plane tickets and drive all that way just to get on the ship. We're talking about a vaca again since the nursing home crap ruined it for us last year. He's mentioned a cruise. Of course when he mentions it, there are no specials going and I've not booked in so long ANYWHERE to know what to do anymore

Glad to hear the stent went well, best wishes there -
I'm onto the flower shop van today, have emails and quotes out to two others, waiting to hear back from them. Tomorrow is my appointment withe the ombudsman. Called our elder care atty to see if he needed a copy of what I was sending and he said no but sounds like you need to talk to this dude and sent me a lawyer who specifically sues nursing homes. Eek. After that the newspaper I worked for is having a reception for the publisher, he's retiring and they've invited me as well. Weird. Ok, I'll come have free food and schmooze.
Have a good day y'all

Instead of being able to go straight home last night I got suckered into the WalMart scam. Got home and he'd pressure washed the front of the house and shop. I suspect he'll do the rest of the house, maybe the fence tonight. Claims he has a side job to do this weekend to avoid me having his truck for any flea market adventures. Afraid I'll bring home a pile. And he'd be correct as there's a pile now of MCM junk in my garage. But notice I said MY garage. I'll get to it when I get to it. Rain due here yesterday and none came, due today and none came, due tomorrow we'll see.
Flowers came however. Freaked me out, I never get any. Turns out the local flower shop we wrap vans for sent me them so I could see what her idea was how she wanted this next one to look. Cool way to share her idea with me.
Have a great day everyone

Morning y'all. Back at work today, had a beautiful weekend, aimed to relax but found every day I had off I was doing something. Tried to R&R yesterday but soon as my feet hit the floor I was dragging out the vaccum, doing laundry and everything else. Never fails. One day, one day.
Cloudy and overcast today, temp due to be the same but don't feel like it. rain coming next couple days. Slow at work so might focus on catching up on some office cleaning.
Have a great day

Intelligence. Something lots of folks are lacking nowadays. Especially the younger group it seems.
I got all y'alls rain by the way. And the noise to go along with it. Everyone in our entire region was promptly awakened around 4 this morning by the loudest clap of thunder and the brightest lighting the likes we'd not seen in a long time. And I think we're up to about 3" of rain now. As if our mud isn't muddy enough. Looks to be shaping up to be a nice weekend though once it moves on out.

Big pharmaceutical meds scare me. They’re designed to cause other issues to have us rely on them to need further meds and eventually population control. Far fetched maybe but it’s my feeling. So far with all my “welcome to 50” testing my all my docs I’m clean as a pin besides weight. Once my sleeping improves hopefully my energy levels will do and that will resolve itself. Friend of mine couldn’t take how his heart meds and cholesterol stuff made his gut feel after a stent so he got on the whole 30 diet and some COQ-10 and fish oil and quit his meds. Doc freaked but he’s got normal numbers.,doc still freakin but can’t argue with science.
Happy birthday Marcus sorry I missed the festivities. I was lazy yesterday.
In other news: if that ain’t county I’ll kiss yer ass:

Afternoon y'all. Cooling here too, 80 and sunny yesterday, due for 70 tomorrow, then 60 saturday with rain.
Already ready for the day to be over with. Was a beautiful night last night we sat outside and had supper with a fire and a frost drink much to the displeasure of the dog who wanted us to remain in the house where she wanted to be.
Plans this weekend are lounging and nothing else. Worked enough.
Hope everyone has a good one. Saw a comment somewhere about Andy's knee. I missed something there but hope everything is allright.

Congratulations on the anniversary!!! And the book John!

80 and beautifully sunny here today. Of course it could not be that way on my day off, raining, and cold. And, I'm not busy enough here to be stuck here. I'd much rather be in my lounger admiring all my work. Of course then I'll notice more work I need to be doing. Might as well stay here.
Have a great day everyone

Had a case of nappus interruptus all night here last night. Me anyhow. Something I ate had me up sick all night. No energy today therefore possibly a nappus maximus later.
Overcast skies here, of course when I return to work tomorrow it will be absolutely gorgeous. Never fails. I'm changing my work days I think.
Arron did the yard this weekend and bought himself a yard sweeper thing. I love that. Never had one, not sure how life happened without one. What would've taken two days was over in a couple hours.
Have noted that the cardinals have chosen the evergreen by our bedroom window for their nest. This is also where one of my loungers sits and in direct view of my other easy chair out on the patio. Tried taking photos today , battery died. of course. Some new parts arrived for our bbq grill so might get to that later on as well after giving it a good cleaning. And perhaps after that nap

I used to use Amazon but quit when they started the tax mess. I just this week ordered some things from there and at the suggestion of my aunt, I got the one month free trial of Amazon Prime. Upon doing so, my previous $86.xx order ended up being $16.xx thanks to them kindly offering me $70 off if I then got their new credit card. I don't need it but heck for that sort of discount mkay.
Rained all day here, and will tomorrow also. Was absolutely beautiful all day Saturday, what happened? Of course Tuesday when I go back it will once again be nice.
I still got out and got more things planted , and got rained on and now feel like a wet dog.

BEES? Blowing out of the vents while driving???? Bees would be the new owners of the car. I'd walk home. Solid nope right there.
Dreary day again today, busy in the office. Was hoping for a quiet day to work on some of my own things I need to do, alas someone brought me a Mack cab so....
Additionally, Adobe CC hates my guts so my Illustrator wants to update and it's not working and I'm bout to throw the tower in the street.
I've also got a small HP laptop here that needs updated from Windows 7 home premium to Windows 10 Pro, and I do not have the time and would like to find a way to do that without spending $200. Seems a bit insane. Need it to use in the shop at home for diagnostic things for cars. The new GM crap won't run on the Win 7 anymore, it has to have 10.
Hope y'all have a better afternoon.

Howdy - rain here too. Beautiful yesterday, naturally, while I was at work. Decided to work Friday, which is my normal off day. Being I took off Tuesday to get all the plants back out and other things in the ground since it was nice. Supposed to rain me out on the weekend. Well my punishment for that is a nice day tomorrow since I'll be in here all day. Of course, I'll be off Monday and instead of the formerly projected beautiful day, we'll be having storms instead. Thanks Mother Nature. And naturally when I get back to work Tuesday, guess what? Yep. beautiful out. Another year of crappy weather every single weekend I'm off. I'm about to switch my schedule up I think.
Hope everyone has had a good last few days. Been kinda covered up on my end. More to do, less desire to do it.
Happy Wednesday

They finally approved the tailgate, it's in the printer. Dude wanted to know could he still get it installed today? Heck no lol. Was supposed to print YESTERDAY, then additional dry time with heavy black ink background before being laminated. Install today this morning. Starting this afternoon, boss out for the week installing paint protection film on-site at Elite Autos, LLC on someone's brand new Ford GT. He won't get an install now till at least Monday.
I've been offered a cash side job at the local liquor sto. The people I know who own it, have two here in town, one within walking distance to the house. Considering it.

In FB news - censorship is a slippery slope:

Mighty big start on a maybe book - sounds like you're making good progress
Sunny and cool here, but we keep managing to get into the 30s at night again. Wondering if that will ever ever end? We've bout had enough. And of course, more rain on the way.
Trying to get a tailgate wrap done was supposed to print yesterday and the dude has a 'marketing lady' who is absolutely stupid as sh*t. She has wasted two extra hours of my time (for which he will be billed $65 an hour for) and delayed his install by two days. All for ignorant questions and rearranging of certified roofing and social media logos wanting them put in places they can't be put or else they'll fall off the edge of the tailgate. Kinda obvious. Then says she hasn't seen many wraps to compare to. Seriously lady? You not have google? Or can't manage to see my work page? Or even drive around town? Or understand "rolling billboard" marketing basics? Then gets upset when she has a hard time reading the tiny print on her proof and will it actually print fuzzy? FFS it's a 10-inch email-able proof of a 63-inch tailgate. I can't email the whole full resolution huge thing. Welcome to come up here and look. Perhaps marketing isn't suited for her. Window licking perhaps?

Nursing home is one place I'm definitely not dying to get into. I'd rather off myself. They're hell holes.
Marcus, have her keep at it. I didn't get to work on my nursing home letter any today as I was too busy but I do have more photos and junk to add to it. I'd like to go visit the dude Monday at the latest. Preferably Friday. I tend to let my cousin (the resident) handle her own business as she's all there upstairs, but sometimes things are just where she can't so I will step in nicely. Next time, I'm nice but firm, then I'll have her get involved as well. If that won't work, I'll get into a conversation with the administration. When those aren't working my next stop is gonna be this Ombudsman. I'm bout to piss errybody off. I also don't want her care compromised but I think we're already to that point so ...
Anyway, happy 5 3 to the Mr and Mrs Gris!!!!

good evenin..
been a non-progressive weekend. Meant to take off and do nothing. I mean no computer, no nothing. Ended up doing junk around here, and the one day I should have stayed home to be in the sun I go coerced by a girlfriend to go to the nearest casino and that was a bust. The machine tilted and I was stuck there 45 mins waiting on someone to fix it and gimme my $$. I left mad, the buffet was not good, etc. She came home only up $100. My bf went this time and drove us and he spent a ton. We're all mad lol.
Housework today, nursing home yesterday and stuff there made me mad. I'm 10 pages into a long letter to the Ombusdman here.
Marcus - with what is going on there, I'd suggest you give the one there a call. Not sure how things work in your area but the Ombudsman is a person who oversees the 'region's' nursing home facilities and advocates for patient comfort, etc. I was unaware of this person until recently and he won't be real pleased to see me. The nursing home here will be pissed as hell at me too but I really don't care. I'm fed up with some things and they are things that "state" really does not control. I'm getting prepared to create a disturbance like they've not seen in a while.
Hope everyone had a good weekend and great start to the week.

Obamacare? If you work for a company - shitty. Self employed and make sure your tax "net" is low as possible, visit your nearest Blue Cross office and much better. We're in that process now with Arron.
Medicare? Shitty. 42 pages via fax to the DHS then snail mail to them yesterday as backup. Strange to me how lazy "house whores" can sit home with 2 kids while boyfriend works up here with me making not much and SHE gets $7400 back on her no-working-a$$ tax return. I'm so mad at that I can scream right now. "They" do not have to provide a year's worth of bank statements, nor maintain a trust fund, nor do they have to manage on $40 per month and give up all assets, have to do with Medicare/Medicaid and STILL have to have $187.10 held out of their check per month for a Blue Cross supplemental insurance policy I could go on and on. anyway - THAT end of the paperwork is done for the first round, we now wait to see if I did it allright.
Also go the taxes done last night. I nearly shit. $2000 more I owe this year than last. My 'expenses' were less she said, my phone bill went down $1000 this year and so did a couple of other things so we were scrambling to find things to make up for it and get that gap successfully closed. x
On the other hand - this is where the government screws you - MATT TAKE NOTE - if you are any sort of tradesman such as a mechanic, fireman, EMT, police officer, electrician, and get a normal paycheck, but do itemize - BEWARE. The tools and equipment that you previously purchased from your own pocket that you were allowed to claim on your Federal taxes - you NO LONGER CAN. You can claim them on state (Arkansas anyway) but NOT FEDERAL. This killed Arron as he had $5,000 of tools and equipment that he is simply "out". He's about to purchase nearly a grand of diagnostic tools that will end up being claimed by me as "computer equipment" next year and we will now use whatever we can on mine including his clothing he purchases for himself. I voted for Trump but he can kiss it on this one. The hardest working bunch of Americans he royally screwed here.

Started to say good morning but I see its' already gone. Been a busy one. Doc visit that tood 2.5 hours instead of .5 hours. They had my ins goofed up then fixed then noisy kids in their office, then to post office to mail the Medicaid crap, then onto my own office. Thankfully so far it's quiet here. Rain due in any minute like we need more of that. Marcus I'm seeing all over the web of horrible things in your area. With the exception of a couple of dudes that found a "miracle fridge" in a field full of beer. Our flooding was minor compared to those poor people. I can't imagine. Our most recent hard rain left us with more mess to clean up yet again with failed sewer pump up town and a yard full of everyone's poop, paper and who knows what else. Whole town is mad and bout ready to run the mayor out on a rail.
It's once again time to do the yearly Medicaid review for the one I have in the nursing home, the elder care laywer is on vaca for spring break with his kids. This is what kept us from our vaca last year as the goof in the DHS office cut off her services for no reason and we had to start over. I'm on my own this week with it so we'll see. I faxed over 42 pages to them yesterday and mailed it today. He told me to fax it since he send me a postage paid 'regular' sized envelope and I told him it wouldn't fit lol. And she's been in and out of the hospital so I am now 15 pages into a long letter to the district nursing home Ombudsman to straighten out some issues. Also have got my tax mess added up and we go tonight to get those done so prayers the gubmint don't get all my little monies.
Hope you all have a smooth rest of the day, the week is a downhill slide from here.

Tried to sleep in here, haven't slept good all week, was a no-go. Was hoping for the temps of yesterday (70) but with no wind this weekend. So far the sun is out but we're about 50. Better than freezing. Hoping to get the yard junk done this weekend and the garage cleaned out some. Saw on the weather news that this out of hand flooding has affected people everywhere - a dam and nuclear power plant in Nebraska are the latest at risk, evacuations in Wisconsin and Minnesota as well. Hard rain here the other night had all our area back to the point it was recently when we had the 'great 48 hour flood'. pool liner held this time however.
Got the new leaf cover in finally, little late for this year but it'll be handy for this fall. Cheaper than I thought at 194$. Happy FriYay everyone

Shhh - don't tell but my boss is supposed to be at Elite Autos, LLC right now across town putting the paint protection on that new FeRd GT that Mark Martin just bought. Not allowed to FB or Tweet it until the car leaves the place on the hauler headed back to him.

We have had more rain in our area than we've had in 40+ years. And, even more due today and tomorrow with very high straightline winds. Like we need that mess. At least there aren't many leaves on trees yet, with all the soggy ground that's a recipe for some uprooted trees and damaged buildings.
Ready to get this week over with already, just want to stay home and nap.
Gris - grab a stray kid off the streets, make a deal that in exchange for half the cookies they can hide out at your house the afternoon. Tell wife that they were lost and you've contacted parents to retrieve said child. Have friend come get child later and take it home. You get cookies.

sump pump into the neighbor's yard and secretly into his pool - great idea!
mosquitoes - that ruined it.
however, as much brush and shrubbery and trees and fields as there are around here the skeets have plenty of places to hide and lay eggs, not sure what little pond I have would be much a difference. Besides, once rain goes away so will the water in the hole. It will remain dry for the most part - or that's the plan

Rain just about to start here. We absolutely do not need any more of this. It all needs to be rationed out through the summer. And it's been finding it's way into our pool house. I see where and how, so now to get someone to help me fix it. Might end up being a landscaping issue, water drains from the yard in front of it, down the side and heads behind it and under the fence. Except then it has nowhere to go then back back up against the pool house and eventually finds it's way in there. All I can think of right now is some sort of pond, landscaping type thing the water can run off into when it needs to yet somehow still look nice when there's no water in it. Challenges.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Sure did enjoy the sunny weather.

Our sun is in reality, a star, which is according to scientists, halfway through it's lifecycle. It will start to grow, become larger, and hotter thus changing our climate in several ways.

rent for millions after selling for $1??? Who was the councilman that conned the group into the sale? I'd be having his head.
Warmer today although no sun. Hoping for no rain tomorrow, I have a cabinet I bought like an idiot I have to go pickup an hour away. I'm retarded. One more excuse to hit some flea markets in the area while I'm at it.
Have a good day y'all

Y'all please be careful working by yourselves. A few minutes alone after a bad fall can mean life or death. Don, my retired body shop friend was up at his house alone when he had his heart attack, literally died and came back. his wife happened to hear him hit the floor and other things on his way down. Had he been at work she'd not been able to help him. Young or old. I don't even go hunting anymore as I have no one to go with and feel I have no business out there alone. Hope your head gets better though Tee. Wait, there's a joke in there - nevermind lol
Matt- the vase could be replaced but it lived 70 years in pristine condition at a value 2.5 times more than I paid and I get it home a break it. They're hard to find here but in areas like Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, etc, they're more plentiful. that's the first one like that I saw here that wasn't $$$.
The jeanie bottle I've yet to see around here. I saw a blue one in AL for $12 those sell for $40ish. The green one I want goes for $50 and up but a cheaper one would be nice. I just want one of each.
Have a good day y'all, cold and sunny here but tornadoes they say for the weekend - again. Sick to death of this 9-month winter storm mess

Sunny and cold here too however the temps are due to rise right along with the water level - AGAIN. Rain due in this weekend with 'severe storms'. My depression is up 1000% because of all this gloomy rain flooding weather and cold we've had. Used to be March was warm spring. However, according to science, our sun, which is a star, is halfway through it's lifespan therefore it's expanding and getting hotter, thereby increasing Earth's temps, throwing off our environment. Explanations are nice but still don't make me any more happy about it. I hate it here. I want to move.
And, this weekend I found myself something I've been searching for, a bittersweet candle holder/lamp/vase thingy. Had it in a box with 2 other items, set the box on table wrong and walked off. The heavy Mikasa bowl threw it all off balance and it all hit the floor. the one thing I really wanted busted in a billion pieces, other two things that hit the ground first, managed to not have a chip on them. My entire week/weekend has been like that. Cousin home from the nursing home but I can't visit as they all have the flu up there and I was told to stay away. Fine with me, I don't want it, but did want to check on her.
I'm also on the search for a Jim Beam decanter (shown) and I find them and naturally they aren't anywhere close to me and when finding on facebook marketplace no body wants to ship. I even found a blue one for $12 but it's in Alabama. I do want the green one.
Hope everyone here has been good.

I'm so confused. This has been a weird week already, I had no clue what today even was then saw this and had to go back and look again at my phone . I thought "march?" WTF?
It was sunny and 70 here yesterday, I went outside to look at a vehicle for a customer and didn't want to come back in. Would've given anything to stayed home on my back porch in the sun and just tried to calm my mind. Today, had to go out and look at another vehicle and couldn't get in quick enough. Freezing out there and the lady I was talking to dropped the "S" word. Figures. I'm off this weekend and the weather will be crappy and cold again. Never fails. It's nice while I'm penned in a box in the office but when I can be out and about it's sh*tty out.
Hope everyone has a great evening, cousin at the hospital had her surgery they can't find source of bleeding but it's stopped and she's getting back to normal. I'm not going tonight I'm getting a pizza and headed home.
Have a good 'un y'all.
