15 days ago the carpenter started on our room. We removed EVERYTHING (including my satellite which made me off-line). She said the job would take about 3 days & we are 15 days & still not finished. The floor is finished, so we moved the satellite equipment & desk back & hooked everything up yesterday. In fairness to her, unforeseen problems came up & slowed the progress. She is supposed to come today & put the baseboards back. After that we will move the rest of the furniture back & I will start putting books back on the shelves (a lot are going to the library for their book sale), dishes back in the china cabinet, rehang the curtains, etc.
I am glad to be back. Missed all my friends. Stayed the same weight (thank goodness) even without using the tracker.

I got all my onions pulled, pulled the weeds from around the tomato plants and have hung the onions with "kite" string on my porch. I did not forget a couple of people who commented on my last post about the onions that I would take pictures & try to explain how I did this. Now I am having trouble loading the pictures onto my PC from my camera. Because I am a senior citizen I seem to be "electronically challenged". I will figure it out even if I have to get one of my grandchildren come do it for me.

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the tuck and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."
My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"
And that's how the fight started...

>>It happened at a New York Airport . This is hilarious. I wish I had
>>the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United
>>Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while
>>making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably

>>A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was

>>Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
>>his ticket on the counter and said,
>>"I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."
>>The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try help you,
>>but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm
>>sure we'll be able to work something out."
>>The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the
>>passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"
>>Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address

>>voice heard clearly throughout the terminal."We have a passenger
>>here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him
