    You're right...that is hard! I found myself wanting to explain my answers. It's good mental exercise, I think, to figure out how to say a lot in few words! Or one word...)
Thanks for sharing!

What a day.

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Got up at 5 to get ready for work. Just got out of the shower and the phone was ringing. It was work.

"What time are you coming in."
"Seven, we open at seven"
"So you'll be here at seven"
"Yes"
"Ok, I'll let the doctors know"

Now this is no surprise. I have worked there 7 years, and we have always opened at seven.

So I get to work (at seven), work till seven pm. Nice day, not too busy, get to have a short walk in the middle of the day. Get home about 7:45, phone rings at 7:50. DGS has swallowed a whistle come to the ER. OK, off I go. Call boss to let her know so she can take call. Turns out it was a small piece of a whistle. Doc says "this too shall pass" and sends us home. He has an appointment for Monday for a follow up with an ear infection, so will check on the progress of the whistle at the same time.

It is late, I am tired. Think I will log some food and exercise, the going to bed.

    LOL, I'll bet you never anticipated a whistle emergency as part of your day! Glad it has a good outcome (no pun intended. well, maybe a little pun.)

DGS is probably short for Dear Grand Son. DH is Dear Husband. DD Dear Daughter, etc.

    Geez! What a long day. It made me exhausted just reading it. Hope you got a good night's sleep. And um.....what does DGS mean? It could mean digital google search for all I know, but I bet not! As you say, this too shall pass.

Two truths and a lie reveal

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

1) I attended 9 different public schools in 4 states. My dad was in the Air Force and we moved, a lot. I did indeed attend 9 schools in 4 states.

2) I have worked with a professional photographer taking landscape and cityscape photos for a calendar company. While my dad was stationed in Germany I spent a summer working with a (color blind) photographer helping him with is photographs for calendars. I learned a lot about photography and considered it as a career for a while.

3) In the past 3 years, I have ridden my bicycle over 4,000 miles, in 6 states and 2 countries. While I have ridden my bike over 4,000 miles, and in 6 states, I have not ridden in 2 countries. I would love to say I have, but, alas, this is the lie.

Number 3 is the lie.

    That is a lot of ground you've covered! You could have crossed the US!!
The photography job sounds cool. I was in a quilting class one time with a gentleman who was color blind. It was interesting; he and his wife worked together. He did the designs and stitching for his quilts, but she picked the colors. How trusting...
Have a great day!

    Impressive just the same. What an interesting life you have had. I took some photography courses a long time ago and discovered my creative side. I loved being in the dark room (only B&W). It led me to where I am now.

Two truths and a lie

Monday, March 01, 2010

My turn to play the game.

1) I attended 9 different public schools in 4 states.

2) I have worked with a professional photographer taking landscape and cityscape photos for a calendar company.

3) In the past 3 years, I have ridden my bicycle over 4,000 miles, in 6 states and 2 countries.

Which is the lie?

    I'm guessing #3.

    I think it is #2.

TERI99 3/2/2010 8:29AM

    I was going to say #2 because there were no such pictures in your gallery, but then I reread it to say that you worked WITH the photographer, who took the pictures, so you wouldn't have posted pictures you didn't take. That leaves me to guess #1 also.

    I guess # 2. I see no landscape pics in your gallery.

    My guess #2 - having been a Navy brat I also attended a lot of schools in many states. I know you're a big biker so #3 wouldn't surprise me.

    Me too! I think it is #1.

    I'm going to guess choice #1, the one about attending so many schools.

The big birthday party

Sunday, February 28, 2010

We had our family get together last night. One of the birthday folks didn't make it, but we had 3 of them. What a great time we had. Of course the grands had to blow out the candles, but that was ok.

The birthday people:


Now it is back to the gym to work off the cake.

Forgot to say, the youngest DGS wanted the big piece on the bottom.

    What a beautiful cake. Did you make it Bev? I hope everyone had a great time. How often do you do these group birthday celebrations? I noticed you celebrated four birthdays (with three of the four birthday people present) in one evening.
