Good Evening! B-)

Good Evening! B-)

It's getting cooler here and I know how I've been missed, and this board definitely needs livening up so I thought I would pop in to see how everyone is.


 


JeanE, are you still out there??  I read some recent posts and don't see a thing by you.  Smiley Indifferent

Heh.  Got to love this.  I'm sure this must be part of the 'Obama Recovery Plan.'  Someone let me know when it's over.

I see Seattle is having problems with mountain lions, now.  I wonder when they'll get the sharpshooters out to annihilate them?

Hey Stinky - good to see you!



I don't know about mountain lions but there was a big horned sheep running around loose for awhile!

Hi Rootie!


 


Wow, it really is quiet around here isn't it? 


 


I read about the wolves.  I didn't read everything though, because it would have upset me too much.  It was just the headlines.


 


Big-horned sheep.  I didn't even know they lived here! 


 


How are you feeling?  Any word on the back surgery?  Or are you doing okay without it?

The sheep was someone's pet who got lose and was wandering around.  I'm not sure why someone would think keeping a pet sheep in the city was a good idea.



It has been rather quiet around here - I've been busy as can be so it's only recently that I've really had a chance to stop by except for the mornings and realized just how quiet it is.

Sorry, got sidetracked.


 


It's been pretty busy here as well.  And warm.  But I think Fall may finally be hitting us.  It's funny how there is no gradual change to our weather anymore.  We just go from one season to another in a day.


 


I stop in from time to time just to read, because I still don't trust what may be posted here.  And I noticed I am 'missed.'  :^O  And I noticed the board is even MORE quiet than when I left, which I didn't think was possible.


 


Geez.  JB really messed things up, didn't he?  I remember when I first came here (on the FBB, I mean) I couldn't keep up with all the posts. 


 


I hope JB didn't 'improve the boards' himself right ouf of a job.  :^O

Yep, not nearly the same.  The "spark" seems to have gone out of the FBB.  If the plan was to make the board boring and listless, it seems to have worked.  Mostly the same old people fighting over who leaves FB first.



Oh well, things change.  I enjoy most of the people who are still posting so I like keeping up with most of them but don't spend as much time doing so.

I used to love that board.  And now I can't remember the last time I visited it.  I guess I should pop over and see who is still posting.  But, since I can't say 'hello' to anyone without getting slapped there really isn't much point.


 


Rootie, I wish you could have been here in the 'old days.'  You would have fit in so well!  The chat moved so fast you couldn't keep up, and there were people from all parts of the country.  I used to be one of the first to sign off even though I was a left-coaster.  It was fun.  And the advice given was first-rate as well.

Enjoy your dinner, Rootie.  I can't wait to hear what you had!


 


I just read a short story about a little endangered spider that is holding up a massive construction project in San Antonio.


 


YOU GO, SPIDER!!


 


I love it!  :-x

And why is there still this stupid delay in posts?  So irritating.  If they're going to review them (which would be the onlly logical reason for the delay), why have the report pad?


 


For you Kennedy fans . . .  I received Bill O'Reilly's Killing Kennedy yesterday.  I haven't started reading it, yet.  I will probably start tonight.  I'll let you know what I think - if I make it all the way through.  An Unfinished Life is still on my coffee table waiting to be finished.  But O'Reilly's book is much shorter - about half the length.

Nothing exciting tonight Stinky - leftover chinese, it was my turn to cook again last night!



I have no idea why there is a delay, I'm pretty sure they aren't going to hire enough people to actually review the posts before they hit the board.  Wonder if they have set up some program that scans them for forbidden words before they post?  Probably not.

Hi Rootie and Rules.


 


Chilly here this morning - almost cool enough to turn on the heater.  We usually get our first rain by the end of the month, so I guess that will be on its way, too.  I remember when I used to look forward to that.


 


Mark sent me an email basically giving me a 'high 5' for posting, again.  So, at least I know he's still alive!  :-D

Oh joy.  Gas went up again overnight.  We're not up to an average of $4.66 a gallon for regular.  Smiley Indifferent
