Lazy Saturday

Today was a lazy day. Didn't do anything constructive. The weather was cold and gray - a good day to watch the NASCAR truck race and a Barcelona soccer game.
I take that back I did do something today. I spent half the morning working on a business card for Bill's leather stuff. It is a card that is two sided and folds in half. Took me a bit to get everything printing in the right directions. Finally got it but now he wants the pictures changed and thinks we (we?) should change the name of the web site. That will mean redoing everything.......And I've forgotten almost everything I know about building a web page. Egad!
Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer out so will try to finish cleaning up Alfie - We want to get him back in storage and out of the front driveway before any branches blow down on him.  Or any mice move in.
Bill is cooking right now – making milanese. We’ll have some for dinner then he’ll freeze the rest for sandwiches or easy dinners. So glad he is such a good cook. He is also making a butter and caper sauce for it. YUM.

For any country music fans out there – check this out – hard to believe it is really Willie.

Have finally finished going through the mail and answering telephone calls. Now all thats left are Christmas cards to answer.
Been reading some of the calls to Brown County 911 - Just a couple of them.....

March 20, 2:33 a.m.: Caller in the 1900 block of Owl Creek Road advises having all kinds of problems. Did not request any officers. Will call back if she needs anything. (I wonder why she called in the first place.)

March 20, 2:32 a.m.: Caller from the 900 block of Helmsburg Road advises a droning noise is coming from town. Advises she is trying to sleep and the noise is annoying. (And it is a 911 problem because?)

March 18, 7:45 a.m.: Caller reports possible intoxicated driver in a white Oldsmobile all over roadway, slowing and speeding up eastbound on State Road 46 West passing west park gate.
7:58 a.m. (the response) County officer will be issuing citation for violation observed of crossing center line. Will be busy with written warning with carload of students from Indiana University. Driver seems tired. All students seem tired. No smell of alcohol, just a carload of tired IU students.
This column is well worth the price of the paper. As I said Life in Brown County is different.
