Another few busy days. And the weather remains ugly. Highs today 55 and it hasn’t stopped raining for 24 hours. Luckily it is just a slow steady rain, not a flooding rain. All the fields of beans and corn are happy.
Watched Barcelona soccer team win another championship on Saturday - we finally found it was going to be telivised on ESPN2 - din’t even know we had that channel. A Spanish championship. The game was okay but Lionel Messi was spectacular. He made one goal that will talked about for a long time. If you’re at all interested in soccer go to this link and watch it. Even if you're not a soccer fan - watch it.
I’ve been complaining about how much STUFF we have to pack. Here is a link to George Carlin’s bit on STUFF. Scroll down to video at bottom it is funny - but a little racy at the end.
A couple of quotes from it. "A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff." "Have you ever noticed that their stuff is sh!t and your sh!t is stuff?"
And I was in hog heaven as there were three NASCAR races over the weekend. Only thing wrong none of my favorite drivers won! The #18 Cup car with Kyle Busch driving was doing really well until 25 laps from the end when he got in a wreck. Glad to see him get out of the car and walk. Only his second race back since he broke both legs.
Another new neighbor - he was out front on the stairs. Don’t think I’ve seen a red headed lizard before.
Went into town this morning to return the stuff Bill had bought for his old computer that really isn’t working any more [see prior blogs.] Had to return it at Best Buy and while there got talking to another sales person who really knew his business. The result is Bill is getting a new PC that is running Windows 7 - it had to be ordered and will be delivered to the house in about a week. He is so happy. Why didn’t anyone else tell us it was possible. It just had to be ordered from their warehouse.
Coming out of the stores parking lot onto one of the really busy streets in Columbus. All traffic was at a standstill at the traffic light - they were letting this mother goose and her many babies cross the street. The picture isn't good cause of the rain but...
One adult and all the rest were little ones. They made it across six lanes of traffic.
