Nite Mirror


It's a chilly, wet day for the annual town-wide garage sale. Although, there does seem to be a lot of people wandering around the town today. I wrote in the friends only section a little bit about my experience last year when I tried to participate. Actually that was more about my lack of thinking it through. I planned for everything except the fact that I couldn't do it alone. I didn't think I would be alone, but ...

Um, anyway, my mood today sorta matches the weather. I tried calling H, but got her answering machine. She probably went to "the cabin" for the 3 day weekend. Well, next week I have a BBQ with the old swing dance group. I'm looking forward to that. I told K I would just watch the softball game she's having along with it, but the more I think about it the more I think I'll join one of the teams.

What else? No one responded to the survey I had in my businesses newsletter yet. I was a little surprised about that. I figured E at least would have answered by now. Although talking to a few people I do know the survey was too Internet oriented. I'm a computer geek, but most of my customers are not. I'm tempted to make a new survey based on that little bit of knowledge, but not on the heels of the last one. Well, one thing I do know is I need to do more than I have been doing with my business. I just have to figure out what that more is.

I had two bad dreams this week which is a little unusual. I won't get into the details, but they have been going through my head a lot.

Moving on to more pleasant thoughts, the Cubs are finally on a winning streak. They still aren't playing good baseball, but a least there is a spark now. During the losing streak there was *nothing* looking good about them. As Ron Santo said in all his years both as a player and now as a broadcaster he never saw a team so dead.

On the fantasy baseball side, my Guttersnipes are still right in the middle of the pack, and I do mean right in the middle. 5th place in a 10 team fantasy league. Now that I'm starting to figure out the league some maybe I can improve that.

Well, this is long enough as it is (or maybe too long now). So I'll end this here.

I'm Not Worthy!

I apologize for neglecting to fill out the survey. And I still need to send in my order. WHY am I such a procrastinator. Will take care of BOTH this weekend!!

Yard Sales are sort of like moving. You find out who the true friends are! :-)

Takes a special person to stick it out and sit at that damn table in the sun and help schlep out goods. As for help from the mothers, yours sounds a lot like mine! They can't hack it anymore. We wil prolly be in the same boat only too soon!

Is that the right use of too? Should it be to? I don't seem to be able to use proper grammar anymore...

Re: I'm Not Worthy!

You don't need to apologize! I realize that there are many reasons why any one person hasn't replied. The "E" I mentioned was the main one that I would have bet I'd hear from by now because she's in the same town as me (so because of mail travel time and all, prob. had the survey days before most of the ones farther away), and is usually good at responding.

Mom tries, and in most ways she's better then Dad for relying on, but ... she is getting older.

Ack! A pop grammar quiz, and I don't even know where my no. 2 pencil is! ;-)

The "too" looks good to me, but than again I have trouble figuring out then/than and the right spelling of whether (I always want to leave out the h and sometimes add an i).
