    If you act like you didn't get it in the mail....Ive done it once before so I'd be afraid to do it again but I know people who do it all the time.

    There are many reasons over here that you can get out of it...there must be a bunch of reasons over there too and I'm sure you could probably find one of them that would fit your situation. I'd be afraid to just ignore it...but that's me. :)

    I'll postpone it for now...no way I'm gonna drive in the dark coming home from Central gang infested Fresno anyway.

    Even in summer, I'd be afraid. Do they accept fear, lol?

    You have a bunch of gangs where you live? I would think that would be an acceptable excuse if you have to go throught their territory to get to jury duty. :)

    yesterday the pit was paying a visit to a former neighbor and seeing how awful my carefully tended garden is going to ruin with the people that bought our place next door.

    the peak was winning $20 on a lottery ticket.

    Missy, I understand about your seeing your garden so "untended". When my husband and I moved from the front Cottage to the back one so we could have the big yard view instead of the parking lot view I had to leave behind the flower beds I had so carefully tended in our first Cottage. I thought who ever moved into the Cottage would appreciate having a nice flower bed filled with flowers, etc. But everytime I went to get our mail in the front I noticed the flower beds looking shabbier and shabbier. Two or three tenants moved in and out of our old Cottage...young single guys mostly who were to busy being young to appreciate my flower beds. So when the last one moved out and my Penta plant was just blooming away for the 3rd season in a row...I went and dug it up along with a multi-colored flowered bush lantana plant and moved it to our new home which I should have done in the first place. :) What is important to each of us...is not always important to someone else.

    It's nice that you won that $20 too. :)

    Peak.. got a refund from a doctor bill. not a lot of money but unexpected .Another peak a GS, hv not seen since last year came by. That was nice.
    Pit-very tired. Everything is prepared for our trip tomorrow.

    Peak yesterday was my Honey and I finished getting our Home decorated for Christmas...he took care of the outside, which I added ornaments and candy canes to our outside tree. And I did the inside Christmas decor. While we finished up everything we listened to our Christmas music adding to our Christmas spirit.

    No Pit for yesterday.

    Pit: Can feel cold front coming our way. Yep, our bodies are telling us this. Unfortunately, it's suppose to be raining on Friday evening during Light The Night Harley Ride here. We don't own a Harley, but have gone to the Denny's, across the street from the Harley dealership where it starts, and what all the lighted-up bikes pull out with a police escort. We put it on video. Depending on the weather, we may still stop by Denny's to see if they go.
    Another "Pit" coming up...........it will be too cold for us to stand outside and watch a local Christmas Boat Parade.

    Peak: Wife got a prescription cough medicine last night. Good stuff, with codeine in it. Cost $63 w/drug plan. Have had it before and it definitely helps with coughing.

    Kind of like this but it was a half roll so flat on the bottom and I was working my arms, not my legs.

    I was basically balanced on my spine.

    Are you still having trouble getting used to the new tablet, @Patsy Faye ? I noticed that I haven’t seen much posted from you about how you are getting along with it, and wondered how you are liking the tablet thus far.

    @Yvonne Smith - Thought I'd try it for a while, did my post but got stuck on a couple of things
    Need to devote more time, but its busier than usual. Yesterday was card writing and delivering here to the apts
    I'm perplexed now, as I put the tablet on the counter whilst removing my specs, went to retrieve my specs and gone !!
    Vanished they have :eek: Its not unusual here for things to go missing, just hope the Gremlin gives them back to me :(

    Pit yesterday: Got a letter from Kia. It seems there is a defect in our Kia Soul's steering mechanism that can cause serious problems. So will have to take our Soul in and have this defect fixed.

    Peak is: Having this defect fixed will not cost us a penny in parts or labor. :)

    The day started well,lolo so I thought. Early this morning, I decided, I should pay online a past due medical bill of hubby.After inserting all the information, it appeared
    it was not accepted. So ok, i will send a check. Took check to front apt office to be mailed. Went to bank to deposit 2 small checks. The clerk handed me the deposit slip,and after seeing our balance, almost had a stroke. What tha $%$#%? $49.68..seriously. So she prints out all the charges from today. The medical center deducted it 3 times!!Not
    only that- it was the wrong place. I was beginning to hyperventilate at this point. Drive back to the apt office, retrieve the bill before postman picked it up.
    Called the hospital billing office(which is wrong place) Oh, it would take 1-2 weeks to get money back:(. Called bank, short version, have to wait until all three posts, call bank again tomorrow, so they can try and credit or accountant. She did make notes about my call and etc. so hopefully will not have to repeat it all again.
    I laugh now, only because things started to slide after that, and being hacked off is messing with me . So forgive me @Babs Hunt , but ole Glo socked some Kulha in her coffee, and tried to calm down:).
    Then i get 3 notices via email that so n so company is changing their terms of services- one was 13 pages long. Then Amazon and Youtube are fighting, so after first of the year no longer can get that on Firestick. On and on lolo most of the day with poop hitting the fan.
    Deep breath- i am alive and everything is going to be alright at some point.
    I keep playing over in my head something GD said the other day that really makes me laugh. At school, 6th grade sex ed. She comes home and told her mom :
    Moma did you know the male penis looks just like unicorn poop, except it's not brown :p.. may have told you this, but needed it again :D

    Forgive you? What for Gloria? If I would have had a morning like that I would have popped open a nice cold beer or poured myself a glass of blackberry wine and destressed too. :)

    I think what Gloria may be pertaining to is that those that profess to be Christians, don't drink or believe in it. Both of my SIL's are exactly that way.

    Some Christians do not believe you can drink any alcohol at all. Others believe that as the Bible says drinking in excess or drunkeness is wrong. As a Christian I don't think there is anything wrong with having a drink sometimes. I believe each Christian has to follow their heart on this.
