Weekend plans -

Tonight: Nothing! Going to hang out with the boys and hopefully my husband will go out with his friends to watch basketball. This is his favorite time of the year and he has been declining all invitations to go out. He needs to get together with the guys that he grew up with - they are good guys and they always make him feel better because they don't make him talk, they just know him.

Tomorrow: I'm going to the Republican County Convention and Gov. Chris Christie is the keynote speaker :) Plus, it's an excuse to wear the suit that I just bought for the funeral and I look really good in it.

Sunday: Church (Palm Sunday), tball practice at 11 (it was cancelled last night because of the cold), then down to my MIL's. She agreed to go to her sister's house for Good Friday, saying that she didn't change her mind, she just "thought things through". Maybe we'll dye Easter eggs with the kids (they don't need to last until Easter)

Very cool! We have had a big problem around here for the past couple of years with people stealing copper and bronze to sell for scrap. They have hit the cemeteries, constructions sites, churches, parks, etc. I think it sucks.
Yes, I've heard of that. The prices for scarp have really gone up, along with the prices of building materials.

1. COOL. I have a friend who did that with copper and it looked awesome. I normally am not a fan of the green patina that copper gets, but with plants, it looks cool.
2. It wouldn't let you type the B word? Weird that it lets me type whatever bad words I want, eh?(SHouldn't it be consistent?)
I think it will look cool too. Thanks.

The warnings are not consistent. Most time I don't get a warning, but them sometimes out of the blue I do for words I always use. I even included the number 1 for the letter i in the b word and still got the warning.

Sub's cool and I value his opinion when I can find it in all his words, but since you have 48,000+ posts you know each of us is not everyone's cup of tea.

That said, glad you keep popping in.

Weekend:

Tonight: pedicures with A. Hoping to get to bed early because I'm still tired.

Tomorrow: may or may not go to a birthday outing for a friend of a friend.

Sunday: nothing planned besides church.

I think this will be a recovery weekend for me. Not that I'm detoxing but I *need* to catch up on sleep and doing stuff at home.

Oh, and I don't think I debriefed you guys on Vegas much: didn't hook up, but it was by choice. The opportunity was there.

No, you flatten the ends. Then use tin snips to make them pointy and then curl them in a spiral to make them ornamental.

My boat, lol. I haven't worked on that in some time. I
"hope" to finish that before it gets too hot, this year.

I have to finish cutting these huge globs of glue that secure the top to the stringers in the bottom. They are really hard to reach. Then I think I will be ready to lift the top (after I remove everything that can be removed from the top. I'm not sure how I will lift the thing. I'd like to use pneumatic jacks, but I don't know where to get those from. Then I need to put it all back together.

It's a big job ... way bigger than I thought it would be. I hope to get to that in May, because once it gets to June and July its so hot that I don't really want to work on it ... I've tried, but it's not fun. The past two seasons I've been busy with landscaping in the spring and haven't gotten as far along as I'd like on my boat.

We have the same problem here. That trellis would last about 1 night in my backyard.

Heck, they're even stealing whole school buses here.

Hate to break it to you, sweetheart, but Christie is a liberal, and a blowhard, and a fat POS. The Republican party needs to dump that deuchetatd.

I need to re-carpet it too.

A Liberal Republican ! Heavens! The tent is not big enough to hold one of "those".

And that, my Dog, is why the Republicans keep losing elections.

For the price, its almost worth it. I was going to suggest renting an engine pull. You could lift/chock the bow, then do the same for the stern

No, republicans keep losing elections because of hordes of illegal voters and missinformation tactics of liberals to uninformed voters who think gay marriage is the biggest, most important issue facing this country.

I dreamed about my cats, which is always stressful because it always involves trying to contain them from getting out, or catch them b/c they got out. In this dream, I found a dryer full of warm clothes, so I put Mia in there for safe keeping (she loves warm laundry -- a closed dryer, probably not so much).

When I had guinea pigs, I would have that dream. Like, there was a fire or something and I had to hold them all at once. I had 5 at one point.

Last night was the best night of sleep I've had in a while. My Vegas dream also had an appearance by this girl I knew in junior high (we weren't even friends) and me, running down the strip singing (rapping?) "It's Tricky" by Run DMC. Then J and I had a farmhouse that we were trying to rehab, but we had no money. Or practical knowledge on how to do it ourselves.
