One of those days


Not feeling up to snuff today.  Kind of “out of sorts” in general.  It’s probably just the lack of sunlight in the past couple of days.11657

As for the results of the infamous court appearance by Ted last night, they let him come home.  Actually, he arrived at the court house about 15 min. prior to the allotted time, but there were quite a number of people who had already signed in. He arrived at 6:45PM and didn’t get home until 9:30PM.  He waited until his name was called, they asked if he had met with the DA, he said no – he was waiting in line but his name was called before he could see her. They said well, it looks like the charge has been reduced to a non-moving violation anyway.  Yippee…. yet, $100 later…. and that was only a parking ticket! 10126

As for today, busy at work, still having machine problems however the electrician came late this afternoon to take a look.9880

Sam goes in for his surgery (ablation) tomorrow morning, so we plan on visiting him tomorrow night at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. I really HATE hospitals. They make me feel woozy.  9601

Sue will take him home on Friday.  As for hunting this weekend, No Way, SAM!!! 10249Looks like Bambi is safe.

The Wall: 

the wall - capped

The extra stones were moved to another part of the yard today and the tow motor got stuck so Ted had to tow it out using Teddy’s truck.  The yard is somewhat of a mess now but will be mended eventually. It’s just so wet out there.  

We are also getting a little bit of credit for the stones we were able to return to the supplier.  The caps were put on the columns so the wall is complete. Now I would like to hide the front lower part with 2 colorful bushes because the stones they supplied have too much grey in them. We ordered “Toffee Onyx” and the stones in the store were more toffee than onyx. The ones we got were more onyx.



I’m going to make it sound like the entire house is falling apart, but just keeping you all updated.  There is a hole in the kitchen wall where the old doorbell used to be. That stopped working for some unknown reason and we tried replacing the little “diode” (not sure if that’s the right name for it), then we tried buying a new doorbell, we finally gave up and bought a wireless doorbell. That also took 2 tries because the first one didn’t have volume control and was barely audible throughout most of the house. 

So that’s another wrap. Just an aside, the Presidential campaigning rattles on. Now Sara Palin is at odds with McCain regarding 3 different issues and word has it she may be setting up her own political agenda … if things don’t go as she hopes this year… for a National office four years from now. Is that scary or what?!!!
