Storage wars

In order to step away from the Katdashians, Shingleman & I have found Storage Wars on A& E.

It’s kind of good, kind of strange and kind of sad all wrapped up into one. I mean, you have people who have to pay to store their belongings. When they obviously hit hard times and default on their locker, it goes up for auction. Then, folks come in and bid on someone’s entire home, or someone’s business….you catch my drift? There are characters who buy who are on the show weekly- Dave, a pompous sphincter who constantly talks about his ” hands of gold”, Barry, an eccentric collector,Daryl, who buys for swap meets, and Jarrod and Brandy, who own a second hand store.

It’s not murder and mayhem; if you want a reality show with an occasional chuckle, try Storage Wars.

Storm is a-brewing…

Below is a shot from out of my middle bedroom …. A front is coming up from the south, I certainly hope so because as you know by now..heat is not my friend. Hopefully, my wheezing and hacking will get knocked out, along with the pollen, with this storm..

Funny, because AMC had ” The Perfect Storm” on when I came home from work….I always loved the story and effects that went into that film, and, of course, George Clooney is easy to take….lol

Umbrella, anyone?

Ugh

Here we are-Memorial Day night.

I am sick like a pup, still,sad looking with a runny left eye,stuffy nose and sore throat. Am taking my vitamin C, forcing fluids, and trying not to give Shingleman credit when he claims air conditioning caused this…..

Hopefully the week will go upward , and this cold/allergies will take a hike!

Summer too soon

So this weekend, Memorial Day weekend, finds the weather in summertime. Because my friend Juls was down at Undisclosed Location, we have had the air- conditioner on. Add allergies and pollen sinus drip and you have…. A SORE THROAT!

So with the mugginess and sitting in a/c, I find it ironic that I am sitting here sipping hot tea. I guess I’ll be drinking ice water in December.!

** sigh**

Happy Memorial Day weekend

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

My buddy Juls, is with us. This morning she went with me and we took her dog Ginger, and I took Kasia, much to Zush’s dismay. It was so warm, I wanted Zush to stay comfortable . My walking friends joined us as we all went down to the Cape May Lewis Ferry port and sat and rested before coming back.

Enjoy your holiday. As I did at the Ferry, if you see a Vet, thank them.

Mañana

The picture below is the Schuykill expressway as seen from my street.

Tomorrow marks the Memorial Day weekend- the holiday marking the unofficial start of summer. As my Dad was a world war 2 vet, I was raised conscious of military service , and will be thinking of him, as I always do.

I am headed down to Undisclosed, with my friend Juls and her fur children , and Jim will catch up a little later with Zush and Kasia. Hopefully we can not be stuck in the thick of the traffic.** fingers crossed**

We are looking forward to some peace and quiet, some good times with friends, and calm. Here is hoping your weekend is a safe one, and you thoroughly enjoy it!

Change of address, part deux…

Well, today was the day that, to quote Susan Sarandon in Thelma and Louise, I returned to “the scene of our last crime.”….in other words, I was back at my original cubicle in the office.

I can’t lie- it felt good.

My computer is 75% connected, and I am unpacked . I know it is quiet now, but it’ll get crazy when notices get mailed out. In a funny way, being back will get me a little more focused, which can’t hurt .

The picture below is my unpacked cubicle.
