Thanks for the kind words folks. 20yrs is a long time to hang with an animal, and I will always have a cold spot on my bed where she used to keep it warm. She was a cats cat.

So sorry hear it, RACE!:-( But it's better than having her suffer. You can have one of my dogs if it will make you feel better (just kidding... it won't).

Most of the working parents that I know take leave/vacation time on Halloween afternoon. It's just part of the culture around here.
Glad I don't live there. I'm already indifferent to Halloween as it is. I'd not be thrilled to be expected to take time off of work because of it.

They're awesome this year. Except for last week. But that game was fixed. I have never seen such BS calls. They (the officials) just HANDED it to Stanford. Screw them.
Go Huskies!
Oregon should be their toughest game, this season....I'm gonna watch...

i'm helping give a baby shower... my BFF, at the age of nearly 40, has gotten pregnant again - her youngest is 13 (!!!!)... i'm looking for paper invitations... any suggestions for where to look? Also, is it just as cheap to order printed ones from somewhere as it is to go to hallmark and get the pack of cards to handwrite?

Then we're making a date and I'm taking you out!
It would be my honor.
I'll be flying in 11/6 and flying out 11/9.
I have a presentation on Thur and 3 on Fri.
Honestly, that Wed is best, but I land at 640 and have to take a shuttle to the hotel and drop off. Is 730-8 too late??

HALLOWEEN:
I love dressing up and I love candy, but I hate trick-or-treating.
Kids are swarming everywhere and get rude like they own the middle of the road.
I never pass out candy (keep light off) but will take nieces when they were younger.
Our church started the trunk or treat years ago and it's nicer. Less stress and worry.

I really want to be a bag of jelly beans: get a large clear garbage bag and make holes for arms and legs and fill it with small colored balloons. Attach a label on the front and put a gold "tie" around my neck. Trying to see how to pull it off.

Sorry from me too. Take solace that you gave her a good life and an easy end. You are a good cat-dad.

RACE I'm sorry.:'( I know how that feels. Sending lots of hugs and a virtual bottle of a nice red wine.

That's the buzz. I think they play AZ tomorrow... I can't remember. I've been maneuvering around ESPN trucks/vans and people building crap for tomorrow all week so I'm kind of annoyed. School is about EDUCATION not football. They're letting people in starting at 3 AM!!!! Yeah, not.

How soon do you need to get them out? Most of the online places do fine work and they have pretty quick turnarounds. It may be slightly less expensive to DIY (check Target for cute and affordable options), but it will be easier on your hand if you order them preprinted (depending on how many invites you are sending).
