Mad Men

The wait has almost been as hard as waiting for Santa to show up when I was a child.  Three day to go.

Why I Am Not Here

Because today has been the first real summery day of the year.  Why would I be inside when I can be outside in it?  Spring, Spring, Spring.

Guy America

My airline ID when I worked for Guy America.  The airline, and I use the word loosely since it only had one aircraft (B-707), flew from JFK airport in New York City to Georgetown, Guyana in South America. This was my first job after I got my Aircraft Dispatcher's FAA license. It wasn't until later that I realized this was the reason why they hired me.  It is easier to do shady things when you hire someone who does not know much. 

This cheesy ID tells you all you need to know about the company.  Although it did look more official in this NY Port Authority ID holder.

The Day Got Away From Me

First, I started the day by taking the dogs on a long walk now that we cannot take them out in the country where we used to run them. There are cows out there now and my dogs have a strong taste for cow poop. Actually they are connoisseurs and prefer calf poop.

Next, we replaced all the main floor windows a month ago and  the replacement window to replace one of the replacement windows that was not as we ordered arrived late this morning along with the workmen to install it. Looks great.

At noon I went to my book club where we discussed this month's book,  Behind The Beautiful Forevers.  It was one of our better club meetings with everyone eager to talk about our book selection.

Then, about four hours later, I came home and realized I had not eaten anything since breakfast so I made myself a chicken sandwich with a glass of cranberry juice and took it downstairs to watch an episode of one of my favorite shows, Burn Notice. Please do comment on this show as I'm only up to the beginning of season six. We do not want a repeat of my sister's reaction when she saw me reading Charlotte's Web.
(She told me how the book ends.)

Next, about an hour-and-a-half ago, we took the dogs on another walk around the neighbor.

Now, it is 6:51 PM and I am in my pajamas while typing this.  The pollen in the air is killing me.  I am so ready for bed.   Goodnight.

A Hunting We Will Go

Here is a photo of my husband out hunting northeast of Fort Collins, Colorado with our dogs Little Sally Pumpkinhead and Duke, alone with a friend's rottweiler, Rocco. Rocco is the only bird hunting rottweiler I've ever met and he is good at both flushing and retrieving. He started hunting about 2 months ago and took to it like a pro.

I'm The Pided Piper

It must be reading the numerous mentions of the phrase "consciously uncouple" on the Internet the last couple of days that has this song bouncing through my mind all morning.

Poor, Self-Deluding, Gwyneth Paltrow

Phrase of the morning, "Consciously uncouple."

Definition of the morning from the Merriam-Webster dictionary: euphemism- "a mild or pleasant word or phrase that is used instead of one that is unpleasant or offensive."

Rephrased Shakespeare quote of the morning, "What's in a name? That which we call a divorce by any other name would hurt just as deep."
