Just wanted to let you know that the contest I proposed last night, to suggest things for the tree stumps in the soon-to-be garden along the back of my lolling estate, is now over. It is not over because I have selected a winner. It is over because I ate the prize for lunch. Yes. That's right. I consumed the remaining portion of the brisket dinner for lunch today, although I hasten to remind you all that there was no actual brisket in the offing because there was no second helping to offer you. Thanks anyway.
Very long day today. I'm on call at work and have received 2 phone calls in the last hour. Pity me, won't you?
Patricia is now officially on vacation for three and a half weeks. I don't go on my vacay for another week, but I will then have 3 weeks of my own off for fun and frolic. She will pile in her car in the next few days and head off to the cottage while I remain here to begin staining the front and back deck. That will be a good time. Maybe after that chore is all over I'll actually be able to spend some damn time on the decks, which will be mine after my easy 78 bi-weekly payments have been made.
I think that's it for tonight.
See you tomorrow.
