Went and got my new Colorado ID, but they used a picture of some old lady by mistake.

Raining here, but I guess it could be worse. At least it's not snow...

Mmmmm my favorite. You turn your pot off after it brews right? Transfer the coffee to a thermos, Keep the pot in the microwave, or throw a towel over the whole thing so the ff's can't get into it. That's got to be the worst feeling when you know you have a ff in your mouth.

I live next to a man that has livestock and the flies get really bad here. I have had a fly get into the coffee pot and then into my mouth. YUCK!!! That's when I started making the fly traps and those things work great! Once you break the cycle you will see fewer and fewer flies to the point that you can go outside with food and not be bothered.

Actually, there are less bugs outside.
Maybe I should let the girls come inside for bug duty.

I forgot about this til now, but many years ago we got a swarm of fruit flies that came in to check out a big bowl of garden tomatoes on the kitchen table. A few of them moved in with me, and for several years we had them all year long. There weren't enough to be annoying, and I never did anything to get rid of them. I guess one summer they just decided to move on to greener pastures.

Just as well, I'm not doing well today with the walking thing.
It will be better to only do what I absolutely must.

I can't believe what I just entered
A simple looking sweep came via email newletter. I thought I was entering for a shirt from an NFL team.
As soon as I hit submit, I realized that the first prize was a SNOW BLOWER. I am moving to Florida next month!
I hope I win the shirt.

Honey, Ain't Nothin' Ever Gonna Be Like It Was Before.
