I wish I knew where this week had gone

Other than to a lot of overtime, of course.

I was made cranky by Tea Party crackpot in Alaska claiming that perfectly valid write-in votes shouldn't count if they spelled the name "Murkowski" incorrectly. Um... I think that sort of goes against the whole "Tea Party is All About The Will of the People over Government," doesn't it?

But this picture makes me very happy.

So does this one.



I started taking pictures with my new little camera. So here is one of the first, featuring Bo the Wonder Dog, being a boy dog:




With some sorrow I say that I have been really, really, REALLY enjoying tooling around in the snazzy little red Corolla this week. I figured that since Barb and I both have the week we come back off, I'll take the truck over to Stanley's THEN and have them check the fuel pump, and see how much further in debt I have to go. *sigh*

BUT -- if indeed the truck manages to last until this loan is paid off, this will tell me I can handle a car payment, and I'll get something new(er). Two years. Last me two years, W.L. Just two years.

I just accidentally hit something on the Tivo remote that sent the show I was watching back to the beginning. I wish I knew what I did, I've often wondered how to do that...

Words: 6,474


If you want to give to a worthy cause, consider this one. This bonus photo was taken when Mom and I visited there a few years back:



These little signs were scattered throughout the zoo, talking about the animals and their habitats. Every animal there was native to Belize. I'd hate to see them have to close permanently -- some of the animals they have are some of the last remaining in Belize, and they're trying SO HARD to preserve them!


One more day of work! The new program is ponderous, and slow, and doesn't do a lot of what I think (and several of us think) we need it to do, but we are assured that it is "better" than the old one.

Okay.

At least we seem to be adapting to it fast enough, and I'm not at all concerned any longer about going on vacation for two weeks and coming back to it.

I thought you'd like the Bo shot. He can be a lot of fun, silly critter. :-)

Do you have an address for donating to the Belize zoo? As a country, they're doing so much for conservation and eco-tourism that I'd love to help. They're on my list of places I want to see, so I want them to still be there and doing good things when the time comes that I can afford it.

Never mind. I see that there's a link there that I missed in my eagerness to see the picture. I'll go click now.

I was gonna say, I think it's on the website. I have to wait until my next paycheck (i.e., when we get back from Florida), but I'm gonna scrape up some and send it to them. I really loved that little zoo. It was a delight from beginning to end!

I'm replying to my own comment and using my leopard icon, since it's close to a jaguar. Anyway...

I gave to the hurricane relief fund, and I also joined for a year, even though it's highly unlikely I'll get there, at least in the next year.

And the 12th! It's the freaking 12th already!

*runs screaming*

Some one of these years maybe I won't have a vacation and horrendous overtime during November...

The Tivo remote thingie
If you press the button that looks sort of like this: ->| once, you jump to the end of the program. Press it again, and you jump back to the front.
