It only took a few minutes...

last night before I wished I'd taken another day or two off! It was 70 something yesterday; I knew the day would start out a bit warm at work, and be cool before 3:30AM arrived.

My neck is already healed, my underarms look like I have a series of cigarette burns on both sides, but they weren't tender immediately. By the time I walked in the backs of my legs were doing a Fred Sanford impersonation, hollering "Big Dummy"!

I get up and down from my forklift almost every order I deliver all night long, to either open or close something, or cut part of a box away. As the night cooled, being down was OK, as was being up, but getting in and out of the "saddle" was a neat trick.

After coming home and showering and dosing all of my little craters with Neosporin instead of Dottie's beloved zinc oxide, things feel a bit better today. I'm about to go dose them all again, then get ready to go play this "silly game" again.

"Diary of a Lost Girl" just showed up in the mail for the weekend for me; Dottie got "Doom".

Just a thought...watching the hullaballoo over Mr. Spitzer's self destruction I heard a lot of Republicans calling for his resignation and impeachment, right along with the Democrats.

As long as Larry Craig is a Republican, I don't think they have the right; when Mr. Craig is no longer a Republican or a Senator we can talk, but not until!

________________________________________________

I realize my "two cents" won't even get you a gumball at the mall anymore, but sometimes the short attention span of the media really gets to me!

May the rest of the week be kind, and the weekend wonderful!

I hope you're having a good day today with friends and family.

And I'm really glad you're okay.

As for Spitzer, yeah. Ugh.
I almost miss that story instead of what's going on with Tibet right now.
