Five for Friday


It’s that time of week once again where I have to engage my monkey brain and actually think of something to jot down here.  Oh boy …

1. It’s pay day once again.  Or as we like to refer to it as “Mother’s Day” as in “Pay this mother.  Pay that mother.”  Yayayaayayaya.  I know.  That will cost me another 1,000 years in Purgatory.  The nuns are rolling over in their graves over that one.

2. It’s a training day from home today.  Loosely translated:  I have all my work caught up and now it’s time to complete some mandatory on-line training so it doesn’t torture me later on.  It may as well torture me now.

3. I have some friends and relatives that are a bit “peeved” at me cuz I won’t commit to the POTUS’s side like they have.  I jokingly referred to them as “going over to the dark side” and they didn’t think it was one bit funny.  I thought their reactions were hilarious but what the hell do I know?

4. Good bye Norway.  I’m not going to get to see you this year like I had hoped.  I’m settling for the Black Hills to see friends and get some taffy in Keystone instead.  I’ll get a decent steak dinner out of it at least.  Well, maybe next year.

5.  And last but not least, it’s still January and it’s still damn cold here tho it’s not as cold as it should be or could be.  There are still grey skies out there and the promise of a new Spring can’t be found.  Mid-winter has always been rough on me with it’s cold and grey and ice and seemingly eternal grip on life.  Fortunately another January is about to end bringing us one month closer to April and garden time.  The Gummys and I can hopefully plant peas come St. Patrick’s Day and I can start working with the garden beds come early April.

OK, so that’s it this week sports fans.  Feel free to comment and/or leave an “Aloha!” as you pass thru.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. I absolutely hate Winter. Can feel your pain. Not looking forward to June. On the bright side 1 down 2 more to go you’re 1/3 of the way through Winter 😊 I’m waiting for Autumn as you are your Spring. Summer is not that crash hot 😊
