Good Morning, 10k ♪ Long time, no see! I hope you and DJ are doing well! Thankfully most of the busyness of March is now behind me. Thankfully during this month I completed all of my seven Violin Evaluator weekend assignments! The first assignment was on February 23rd. During March we also hosted two sets of family visitors on two separate occasions, the second set of which stayed over at our home for a few days. Thankfully I also got two sets of Wedding Gig Contracts signed for May 3rd and June 1st! PTL!

Unfortunately my 2004 BMW 325i Station Wagon recently had a major repair issue, which costs about $7,000 to repair. Since it is too expensive to fix, our Mechanic, my Parents, and I unanimously agreed to replace it. We are looking at used Honda CRVs for the replacement car. Please pray for wisdom in finding the right deal on a used Honda CRV. When I get that car, I will share the updates on FB and my Studio, and when I get a chance, your GB Home here.

Now that I am through with my 7 Violin Evaluator assignments and hosting two sets of family Visitors, I will be working hard with catching up on my life and biz this week.

Today I plan on a full day of catching up on many important tasks at home and doing errands as needed. Tonight I have one Violin Student to teach.

Have a Wonderful Monday!

Good Evening, 10k ♪ Long time, no see! Hang in there with the snowy weather, as spring is right around the corner!

Sorry I haven't stopped by here much lately, as my life has been super busy lately. Thankfully I was given a total of 7 big weekend assignments to Evaluate Violin and Viola Students for the Music Teachers' Associations' annual Certificate of Merit Programs in Southern CA cities away from my local Music Teachers' Association - Long Beach Branch. The idea is to have Music Evaluators evaluate Music Students that are outside of their area. I posted some pictures of my last Evaluator job at my Studio on Sunday night, along with an updated picture of my baby Nephew Jacob. He has grown up so fast.

BTW, dilbert3333 posted an interesting reply at my Studio tonight regarding his desire to retire in your home state of NC. If you can, I would suggest going to my Studio soon and replying to him there about your thoughts on your own state. He stated that he likes the political climate in your state better than my state. I don't agree with most of the political agenda of my home state CA, but we have to co-exist with our diverse population.

I hope you and DJ are continuing to do well. Take care and I hope to see you at my Studio again soon.

Good Night! Here is a picture of Ashville, NC covered with snow!

Good Evening, 10k ♫ You're welcome for the 85th Birthday Greetings for your Mom. I am glad she had a nice day with you today!

Yes, I see you are active on GB, due to your racing stripes. But your visits to your GB home are rare. Please do stop by your GB home and my Studio as you are able to.

Thank you for your kind thoughts for today! Thankfully teaching went well, but unfortunately the Farmer's Market Raffle was cancelled due to rain.

Enjoy your evening and Friday ahead!

Good Night!

51° for the high, just too cold for my naked bones.
So DJ was liking the icy Mother Nature made for you all. Hope it is not the yellow or brown kind, lol! Yep, had to check to see if it was a burn day or not. Have a super Monday!

Good Morning, 10k ♪ Just √ing in on you and DJ. I hope you both are doing well.

My life has been super busy as usual.

This morning I have to meet Mr. Larracas, the JOY Ministries Chairman of the Board, in Los Angeles to get his signatures on the JOY Ministries Receipts. I will continue to call up our JOY Ministries President daily until I can reach him to arrange for him to sign the 2013 Tax Deductible Receipts. He and his family rarely answers the phones. After that, I have a full day to get lots of errands done and tasks at home as needed.

Have a Great Tuesday!

Good Morning, 10k ♪ I hope all continues to go well with you and DJ.

Thankfully the Colby wildfires that started last week are on the way to containment, if they haven't been fully contained yet. Today is the estimated containment day, and I haven't √ed out the local news yet.

Regarding career #2 searches, I am currently looking at another sales job lead, but not in real estate. I will post news once career #2 is confirmed and running. In the meantime, I am working whenever I find such opportunities. Thankfully I did a substitute teaching job yesterday with five Students!

Today my Mom and I will be attending our noontime Prayer Meeting at Church. During my unscheduled hours I look forward to doing tasks and errands as needed. Hopefully I will have some time today to turn in my application to the new sales company, so that I can join them before the January 31st deadline.

Have a Great Wednesday!

Good Morning, 10k ♩ You're welcome for the visits to your barn while you were out for quite some time. I am glad you and DJ are doing well, in spite of DJ's mischief with the Christmas decorations outside your home. For my latest Christmas decorations, I waited until January 7th, the day after Epiphany, to take down all the Christmas decorations from our home inside and outside. With DJ's constant desire to chew things in her puppyhood, I think it is advisable to take down all of your Christmas decors ASAP.

Have an awesome weekend ahead with DJ!

Thank you for reading back on my posts at your barn! Regarding job #2, I decided to give up on the Realtor job. Unfortunately the Realtor Boss forgot to call me up for training. When I requested a training session, he booked it, and then later on called the day before to cancel it due to work he needed to take care of. If he is too busy to train me, then I really have to move on and look for another sales job. I know it definitely has to be sales, as a dear friend of mine, Mindy, who did not finish and graduate from High School, is now enjoying six figure income from her sales job. Why go back to school, get into more debt for a Masters degree, only to continue having more trouble finding a job? Unfortunately I have family and friends with Masters degrees who are working low paying jobs. o as of now, I am working out the details of job #2 and will post Studio updates when I have more news about it.

Yes, unfortunately the Colby wildfires continue to burn at this time and will take a few days for the firefighters to contain.

Yes, Farmer's Markets are always fun year round. The food selection tends to taper down in the winter months, but the quality and freshness of the foods over there are worth paying the extra price.

This afternoon my Mom and I will be attending the Baby Shower of our friend JoAnn's Daughter, at a home in Long Beach. During my unscheduled hours I look forward to a full day of doing tasks and errands as needed and desired.

Have a Peaceful Saturday!

Hi there 10K............ Wow, someone did post on this thread. I thought I was a dreaming there for a moment.
6 States? Seriously? Then LA still will be crying cause of no water. Them Demos are still trying to get more Demos in office and with this move they want to bury anyone other than a Demo-crap! I will believe it when this happens and not before!
Where in car-nation have you been? You got time ther to watch them hillbilly type in duck nation, but don't have time to shout out during won of those dog goner ads? Me threads are getting pretty lonely out here.
70° weather here and no sign of rain. Sorry to hear about your cousin Chuck!
Talk to you again I hope! Have a super Saturday!

naked: i'll be in California shortly (on the 'puter anyway), so i'll peek at ya over there-lol..

MT: i'm not gone, and thanx for not forgetting..i have been reading your posts to my barn..i hope your area survives the wildfire's smoke and haze, and all that comes with it..isn't the Farmer's Market so much fun ??..
continued good luck with your students, and your Realtor job..oh yeah-love the winter weather thingie..we finally had some snow here yesterday morning, but it was 33°, so it only stuck on rooftops and car tops, and when it stopped, that quickly melted-bummer..

the DJ report: i know DJ is thrilled to death with the manger that i built for Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus, cause since she took it over in November, it might as well be her doghouse-sighhhh..poor baby Jesus is out in the cold again..yesterday when i thought mebbe she had been a good doggie while i was gone, she proved me wrong-the orange drop cord she had attacked earlier, was attacked again, and she ripped two Christmas trees down that were hooked to it-GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR..i normally leave my outdoor Christmas decorations up til it snows on them, but DJ may force me to take it all down..she eats, she sleeps, she set off the home alarm again-just another day-lol..

y'all have a great Saturday, ya hear ;)

Good Evening, 10k ♪ Long time, no see with you and DJ! I hope you are both doing well!

Other than not having enough work with Students and Gigs, thankfully I am doing well and hanging in there. Unfortunately in my region, yesterday a wildfire happened in Colby. Here is the current news updates from TV Station KTLA 5 regarding the Colby fires above Glendora in my region. The fire was so bad, the fumes and ashes went all the way into my hometown Long Beach. We had to close all doors and windows and use a HEPA air filter. Unfortunately the fire has not been contained yet, so we still have to keep our doors and windows shut.

Take care and have a great weekend! I hope you will return again soon. Miss you!

Good Night!

Good Evening, 10k ♩ Thanks for the DJ update! Just like Duke, she seems to have a strange liking to freezing temps outside! Best wishes with taking your Mom for her Doctor's visit. Kudos to you for taking care of your Mom! As you know, I like to do the same for my beloved Mom.

Have a great Friday and weekend ahead!

Thank you for the long awaited Studio visit! I missed your Studio visits!

Thank you especially for relating with the pains of working commission only jobs, with your Son constantly looking for the next deal with his Realtor job. I have been there and done that, and that is why I was reluctant to return to the biz. That is good he can still find some Realtor work in the Raleigh, NC area in spite of the recession. BTW, in my reply to MidnightSun tonight, I shared a very difficult situation with my past Realtor career, with lots of hard work that almost became a disaster of losing out on the deal and commission.

Thank you for your kind thoughts as I try to work out a salary plus commission deal. Today's updates are posted at my Studio.

Yes, with the way things are going, the recession is definitely lingering on too long.

Thank you for the congrats on my seven Evaluator jobs! I am thrilled about those, because I know that it is guaranteed pay for all my efforts, unlike Realty jobs. Yes, you are correct, the Farmer's Market is one of my favorite fun places to visit!

Good Night!

We had a high today and it was warmer than yours, lol. We will also have a low tonight that still will be higher than your low, snicker.

howdy lighting, MT, and somewhere lost in the fog is naked..

lighting: we had 10° on Tuesday, and 12° on Wednesday..high on Tuesday was 24°..both Tuesday temps were record lows..hopefully that will kill some of the varmints and vermin that have survived the past coupla mild winters..your 4° temp should likewise do the same for y'all..48° now, and beginning to cloud up..yup, the "R" word here over the weekend also-where was this precip at when we had temps in the teens and 20s-GRRRR..i've been inside pretty much all week, going crazy-sighhh..

naked: i'm coming to git ya boy-and bringing 10° with me, to freeze your Cali butt off with-hehe..

MT: look who finally showed up again ;) beautiful pic of the Swiss Alps..i'm very glad to hear you got hired as a Realtor.."commission only" is tough-that's how my son is being paid, and it took him about 4 months to finally split a sale with another realtor..since then, he has made three sales..it seems like the Raleigh area (where he is), and the Charlotte area, are the only places in NC right now that are moving, albeit very slowly..i wish you well on getting salary, cause as you said, no bills get paid w/o money coming in..i hate to hear that another student has left-you are correct: no matter what the "talking heads" are saying, we are still in a deep recession, and i don't see light at the end of the tunnel either (unless it's an oncoming train)..as a planning board member here, we had just one request for a new home in the city in 2013..one request-no way are we recovering..congrats on your seven evaluator jobs-may those seven lead to many more ;)

the DJ report: it appears that temps of 10° and 12° are to her liking..both mornings when she went out, she only occasionally came back in, and i think that was to see if i had anything to eat..i could not work from "the freezer" Monday thru Wednesday, and it's only bearable in here now cause i came in early, turned on the little bitty heater, then went back home for about three hours, while it "warmed" up a little bit in here..i left her in the yard again, but it's in the 40s now, so that's like a heat wave to her..nothing really extra to report with her, but i guess that in itself is good news-lol..she weighs 53 lbs now, on our three month anniversary on January 3rd..when i adopted her, she weighed 32 lbs..the vet peeps now think she will top out around 55-60 lbs..

y'all have a great Thursday ;)

Good Evening, 10k ♪ Long time, no see! I hope you and DJ are doing well in this New Year 2014. We miss you here.

This New Year 2014 has lots of news for me. First of all, I thank God I was hired for my new Realtor job on December 31, 2013! However as of the present, it is a commission only job. Unfortunately that will not help pay my bills on time in the beginning. I will try to work out a deal with my new Boss for salary plus commission.

Unfortunately I also lost one more Student recently, which was confirmed by a phone call. Sadly, the recession continues in 2014. :-(

However on the upside, I shared a nice update at my Studio today regarding landing seven Violin/Viola Evaluator jobs with my Music Teachers' Association! PTL! I will be working these Evaluator jobs on weekends from February 23rd through March 30th. The details are posted at my Studio.

Good Morning Terry and DJ!! 29°

Hyperinflation & New Economy in 2014 as the DOLLAR COLLAPSE

Stuff is starting to cost more because there nothing backing the dollar.
Our Dollar keeps going down so things keep getting expensive.
We the people let the clown in DC bankrupt this county.
No one to blame but our self. It time we take a stand to get America Back.

The A-F is at it again in the North East with this winter storm.
They have given it a name I-on. It a Topical Storm bring lots of rain
of the east coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Its doing a big circle.
They just can't leave Mother Nature a loan.

Just look at the weather next couple of days. It will be very cold here.
I seen K - trail in the sky again. They can chance the weather to Hot and
Cold to Rain and Snow. They have to use radio wave too, to help it a long.
It will be in the teen and the high upper 20's to low 30's during the day.
It mite make low 40's today. Will see doesn't look good. Its 31° now.

Just my opinion.

Enjoy your Saturday why having fun in Life.............

Hi there 10K............ Christmas was great for me and the wife. We just kicked back and did our thing. We saw temps rising to 61° today and they say we will freeze by morning with 31° or lower. Clear skies and a north wind keeps us buried in the sack with the electric mattress pad on! If it isn't on, we might be making some of our own heat, lol! Hope to see Cash back soon, I miss her tugging our chains! She is good people if you know what I am saying. Seriously!

Good Evening, 10k ♬ I am glad that the chew bone is keeping your dog DJ happily occupied, and her teeth away from things that you don't want chewed up around the house and outside. Chew bones and chew toys are wonderful things for puppies! Just make sure you give it to them only when you can reasonably supervise them. Otherwise you can run the risk of them choking on the chew items. Our late Peachy sometimes gagged over rawhide sticks that we gave her in her youth. The chewing novelty and excitement over squeaky toys wore off when our late Peachy matured. Yes, some dogs will outgrow their "toys," just like people do.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thank you for all of your thoughtful replies, including my pending Realtor job application, and for the 40th Anniversary greetings for my Parents! My happy Saturday updates including a picture of the 40th Anniversary Cake, and another picture of my Mom's Three Carrot Zucchini Breads, are posted at my Studio.

howdy lighting, naked, MT..

lighting: the rain hasn't gotten here yet, but it's in the Raleigh area-i looked at the radar, and it's socked in all the way to Alabama-geezzz..i got a small heater in the icebox, but it's only good for temps around 50 or better..my feet wuz frozen in there today, and the outside temp was 59°..i've been raking pine straw and fighting off DJ attacks-lol..she loves to go after that rake..

naked: ain't been any wind here or in Cleveland for two days now..cash and i figure it must be blowing like mad in Sacramento-lol..59° here today, and 62° tomorrow, before old man winter roars back in on Monday..

MT: great good night pic-i think you are correct..i believe DJ would love the chase, but it would be bad news if she was to catch the cat-lol..i had no choice with my work puter-my niece overthrew me-snicker..sorry to hear your allergies flared up on Christmas, but at least you had good day ;)
glad to hear you and your mom had a great day at your favorite outlet store..

the DJ report: i bought her a chew bone for Christmas last night, and today she took that chew bone and i ain't seen her since-who woulda thunk it-no chewed off fingers or bite marks..WOOHOO..she is somewhere in the yard just a-gnawin' it, i'm sure..good ol' DJ slept til 7:05am ; ) probably cause she didn't sleep good during the night-the trains were bangin' and clangin' pretty much all night, and she can't stand it, cuz she hasn't figured out what's making that noise-hehe..i'm out here at the freezer, but it's actually trying to warm up a little bit out there-just not in here-sighhhh..hopefully when i get home in a coupla hours, the thrill of that chew bone will not have worn off as fast as the frisbee thrill did, and she won't attack me..

y'all have a great Sunday ;)

Good Evening, 10k ♫ Sorry you had to be off from your computer for some time, so that your Mom and Niece could use it. I hope your Niece was able to order the wedding pictures that she wanted. I hope you and DJ are doing well. Have a great weekend ahead!

Thankfully my Christmas Day went better than expected, in spite of having allergies that day, as I shared at my Studio with pictures.

Thankfully I enjoyed my day today with my Mom, which included a visit to our favorite Outlet Store in Laguna Hills. Today's happy stories are posted at my Studio, including an update on the prospective Employer.

Good Night! I think DJ would like to chase one of these! ;-)

i hear ya lighting-ain't no way in the world a tropical depression can form in the Gulf on the eve of a new year, w/o man's intervention..they just don't form in cold water..most weatherdudes will tell ya the water temp needs to be at, or near, 80°-that's why we don't have those suckers this time of year..

it's 44° and i'm freezing to death out here in the freezer..my toes are gone ;(

i cleaned out storage buildings yesterday-got one left that needs to be auctioned, cause it's full of stuff..

have a great Friday evening..

Good Afternoon Terry and DJ!!! 44°

44° partly sunny sky

Calling for rain over the weekend.
There a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico.
That is going to bring lots of rain over the weekend.
There at it again. Why can't these people leave Mother Nature along.....
When listen to the weather why can't they call it what it is.
Why give it another name.
Just my opinion. A-F

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what is going on with our Weather.

Working here in just a few minutes.

Been watching movies and History Channel Two.

Enjoy your Friday why having fun in Life...........

Good Evening, 10k ♩ Merry Christmas to you and DJ too!

How nice that DJ is bringing lots of joy into your life with her hyper puppy self! That is great you had a happy dream last night with Duke letting you know he was happy with you adopting DJ! It was your calling and you followed through with it. But getting another dog after losing one is not for everyone, as my Parents and I mutually agreed on. Not having another dog in our home has worked out well for all of us, but we will always miss Peachy. Like you shared, you will always miss Duke and other dogs you owned that went before him.

Thankfully my Christmas Eve went well, as I shared at my Studio.

Twas the Night Before Christmas - Good Night!

howdy lighting, naked, MT..Merry Christmas..

lighting: the cold weather finally returned-45° today, 39° tomorrow..hope you have a very Merry Christmas ;)

naked: Merry Christmas nekkid..it was 45° today, and s'posed to be 39° on Christmas Day..yup..going to mom's-about one whole mile away..commuter traffic should be terrible-lol..

MT: Merry Christmas from DJ and I..i have noticed lately that when she starts acting up, if i ignore her and walk away, she will stop-hehe..it was Christmas weather again today-45° and breezy, and a predicted high of 38° tomorrow, Christmas day..

the DJ report: Christmas Eve must be bah humbug to DJ..she woke me at 4:40am, again at 6:15am-at which time i told her to go back to bed, and again at 7:50am..she has been in the yard pretty much since then, so i expect to have a wild, muddy puppy-type beast when i return home in about an hour..other than this, it's just been typical DJ-which to me is typically good-lol..i had to post a pic of the Dukester last night, cause i had a dream a few days ago in which he told me that i had done good getting DJ-yeah, i cried when i posted his pic..Merry Christmas to y'all from my canine family: Duke and DJ ; )

y'all have a great Christmas ;)

Good Evening, 10k ♩ Yes, puppies need tough love to learn their lessons. We gave our late Peachy lots of that in her puppy days, and it all paid off!

That is too bad you couldn't follow your original house plans to have hardwood floors. We would like hardwood floors too, but they are pricier. Instead we have tiles. They are great as they keep cool in the summer, but they feel cold in the wintertime. At least they are much easier to keep clean than carpets.

Thank you so much for your kind empathy regarding my unexpected mass exodus of Students since this summer and the sudden hardships that has put me into lately. Yes, I hope and pray I will find the right work opportunities soon.

Thank you for reading back on my Christmas Sunday and for your kind words!

Thank you also for your kind words for my week off from teaching! Yes, it is a blessing to have the extra time to catch up with my unfinished tasks, but it is a burden to not have the income. Self-employed people like myself neither get paid time off, nor paid sick time off.

Your dog DJ is mischievous and gets her teeth into lots of things outside! She will surely need some safe supervision. You would not want her to ingest things that can harm her, and puppies, like infants and toddlers, are prone to ingesting dangerous things!

Have a blessed Christmas week! I hope you and DJ will have a blessed first Christmas together! You're welcome for the fun Christmas and Winter Themed graphics. It is now that time of year again!

Thankfully my marathon Monday went well, as I shared at my Studio with pictures.

Good Night!

howdy lighting, naked, MT..

lighting: the rain never got here til sometime overnight..DJ is a muddy mess-ugh..it's still 70° here-i will be so happy when that temp starts falling later today..the ground is very wet and soft here also-i sure hope the wind doesn't get too strong when that cold front moves in, cause some things may go down..i'll be here at the OuttaSite storage place til 3pm or so tomorrow..

naked: you know dang well that muslim terrorist dictator never got my vote in either election..you just watch-if the repub's don't get the senate next year, harry reid will start something to get the terrorist another term or two..$15 is all ??..i ain't buying that crap, so it will cost me $95-is this not socialism or what ??..whatever happened to freedom of choice..btw-i support Phil Robertson too..we had a record high of 79° yesterday-it's 70° now, but the temp is beginning to fall-s'posed to be upper 40s/low 50s tomorrow, and mid 40s Christmas day..

MT: gotta luv those snow pix-tyty..i hope i made DJ feel so guilty that she will never wet the floor again, unless it's an emergency..wood and vinyl floors are a great idea-my original house plans called for hardwood floors upstairs, and in the dining room downstairs, but in an effort to save money, i just carpeted all the bedrooms and the dining room-my bad too, cause they really need cleaning or replacing, and i can't afford either..i'm sorry to hear about the number of students you have lost, and that loss is causing you to return to the outside workforce-good luck with your endeavors..

the DJ report: wow-she slept til 7am today-woohoo..she went outside, did her thing, then came back in, and i fed her, at which time she went back out again-and stayed..good thing to, cause she is a muddy mess (the rain finally showed)..DJ keeps dragging stuff into the yard that can only be from Amy's playhouse, cause i have no idea of any other place she could be finding this stuff, but i don't see anything in there like she is bringing out-she must be a better hunter/gatherer than i think she is..i can only imagine when i get back home what she will look like-lol..all the white on her may be a nice "mud brown" shade..whurz da snow ??..at ??..

y'all have a great eve of Christmas eve ;)

Hi there 10K.............. you said "it seems like when one thing goes wrong, everything bad starts snowballing..." -wahhhh poor thang!!

$15 in the hole cause of your leader and is expensive medical care and I haven't even bought into it yet! He is your president, you got him in office without looking at his background. That's like hiring a yard duty teacher to fly a Boeing 767 anywhere in the world. Why? Why? Why did you hire him to run our government when the only thing he was good in was extortion! Remember he is your man!

In other news, we got up to 61° and the allow is dropping a little here, a little there to 37°today.

Have a nice Monday!!

Good Eening, 10k ♩ So sorry that your puppy DJ peed in the middle of your bedroom floor. I think for anyone who owns pets, it is a necessity to have either tiles or wood floors. My entire home has tile floors, so cleaning up after Peachy was easy and problem free. That is good DJ obeyed your command to keep still while you were cleaning up her mess. When our late Peachy was a puppy, we scolded her, shoved her head near her mess, spanked her, and sent her outside. Eventually she got the message and got potty trained.

Yes, puppies love chewing and destroying things! Best wishes in puppy-proofing your home and keeping her and your valuables safe. Enjoy the rest of this last weekend before Christmas.

Thank you for your encouraging words for my Saturday. Today's happy updates and pictures are posted at my Studio. Yes, I understand this being one of the busiest times of year, so I do appreciate it whenever you can stop by my Studio.

Thank you for your ongoing wishes for my music teaching and performing biz to improve, and for my job prospects. This past Monday I interviewed for a Real Estate career opportunity, which I think went well. I am currently awaiting the results of that interview. Unfortunately I have lost too many Students since summer break, many which never returned in September, that I have to seek out other work opportunities, even if they are not related to Music. At least I have had previous work experience in Real Estate, and sold 5 homes in my lifetime. Thanks for the kind words of empathy. I personally know of other Musicians who have to work music-unrelated "day jobs" to make ends meet. With the way things are going now with the recession and lack of Students, I will have to join their ranks.

Good Night!

howdy lighting, naked, MT..

lighting: i did make it..chem-trails everywhere, eh ??..we have an air force base 20 miles east of us, but all i've ever noticed from them is when those F18s roar about 20 feet over my rooftop-they will scare the heck outta ya..i agree with you though-they better leave mother nature alone..t-boomers here on Sunday also, and some of them could be rough..

naked: i was not having a good time not being here-wahhhh..it seems like when one thing goes wrong, everything bad starts snowballing..so you are 15 bux in the hole eh??-poor thang..for the past coupla days, DJ has actually left the lights alone-woohoo..mid 70s and t-boomers Sunday, then mid 40s on Monday..

MT: i'll be heading to the studio to see what's up..it's a shame you can't make enough to survive by tutoring, and are having to find work in the outside world..i hope Monday's job interview turned out good for you..

the DJ report: if she wanted attention, she got attention-last night when i got home from my man-killer workout, and the food store-spending my loot on that beast, i went upstairs only to find a huge wet spot on the carpet, in the middle of the bedroom floor..needless to say, Miss DJ pranced up the stairs behind me, as if to blame it on the cat (which i don't have)..i sent her to her corner while i attempted to soak it up, and when i went back downtairs, i told her she better not move..after about 5 minutes, i slipped back upstairs, and lo and behold, she had not moved..i told her she was free to go, and she headed for the door, so i turned her out..she slept til 6:10 this morning..my neighbor tells me he has been playing with her off and on, and he thinks her wildness is just puppy-related, so i told him he was welcome to be her new chew toy-hehe.. it took her two days to destroy a frisbee-geeezzz..at least she is leaving the lights alone-for now-lol..

hope y'all have a great Sunday..

Good Morning Terry and DJ!!!

36° Partly cloudy sky

Just my opinion: Yesterday I saw 15 K-Trails in the sky. I wish they
quit messing with the weather A-F. Hadn't sense any in about two weeks.
Its doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what going on!!! This mess up
Mother Nature, doesn't know what to think. Hot or Cold. Take your weather
Experiment else we're........ But that is never going to happen.

There now saying we could see Tornado on Sunday. Give me a break!
Nothing like Government throwing in the kitchen sink. Like I said
take your experiment else we're. Just my two cents worth.

Today mid 60's. Tomorrow upper 60's to low 70's. Sunday mid 70's.
Go figure...........

Working again today.

Watching Movies and C-roundball.

Enjoy your Friday why having fun in Life..........
