<quoted text>Family tries to tell me " long distance relationships" don't last. Phooey, just makes them more interesting I say. It is fantastic that you get to travel back and forth between places. Anyway, since he's retired you can enjoy your time together and apart knowing love is all around. Hehehe. I don't ever let anyone interfere with my relationship.
Partner knows where I stand and I him. It's terrific that although two people can fight and be apart: they always find themselves together again:) I think I'd be home fishing on the pond and eating those fish.Hahaha. Fortunately, you and he always have the option. Great stories, glad you share.
Lol. The long distance relationship. I know about that! Now,woman to woman, have you ever, while talking to your honey, gotten aggravated and instead of arguing said, "Traffic is getting heavy, I've got to get off of here."? Lol. Heeheehee!
Thanks for all the kind words. I appreciate them!
Just had lunch in a small basement diner that requires you to leave the sidewalk and go down some stairs to the entry door. Kinda like in Cheers. And yes, everybody seemed to know everbodys name. Hey, it's a small town under a 1,000 people! Washer stopped. Later!

I will say something like I have to go I think I'm getting another call from so and so whom I haven't heard from in a while. Hehehe. Well, it's the truth; it's the green eyed monster in me rearing her ugly head and about to spew like a volcano. He started gushing about this long haired waitress with that hair a swishing. Boy, I knew, I better end that call quickly. A few months later I started gushing about the actor Mark Walberg who in his 40s had such a nice build. He mutters ' wish I still looked like that.' Hehehe. We have to love' em, Anne. They work so hard to make our lives better. You keep on enjoying yourself on that trip.It sounds like it's been a blast so far!!!

ISP took too much of the prunes and turnip greens to alleviate their constipation, and then had 24 hours of back door trots. I hope they are regular again. hehehe

It's already late so I'm off to sleep after this. My chickens have been popping out those eggs since I've been gone. My grandson says he knows the reason is all the crickets he's been feeding them. Could be true for all I know!
This little apartment is shaping up!! I figure we've spent about $150 so far but I'd like to get a rug for in front of the couch and a couple things for the living room wall. It was half off household goods at the thrift shop today and I found a 2x3 pic of large dahlias-- yellows, oranges, reds and a little green. It really spruced up that tiny 8x10 yellow kitchen! Then I stuck in a red dish drainer and a red trash can. I'm having fun.
Tomorrow I'm headed out to lunch with some of the other wives. Japanese hibachi. Each group of ladies meet once a week and last year when I was here I met with two groups. Tomorrows meeting is a two hour drive for me so I've got to catch those zzzz's!

@Anne.. Hens just enjoy consistent and better weather. They are creatures of habit and don't care for changes in weather or routines. They do require a high level of protein for egg production, so the crickets might be a treat.

Mine are such habitual creatures that with 12 nesting boxes they will only use 2 and argue over those like siblings arguing over bathroom time even when there is another one some place else. My hen's egg production is also much better than a month or so ago.

During my IT career, I traveled quite a bit to install hardware and software but never stayed in any one place long enough to maintain an apartment. But also being a country bumpkin, I found that a pickup truck with a cab-over camper fit my needs better that dragging my junk in and out of motel rooms or trying to make last minute reservations.

With IT, one just rarely knew when or how long they would be someplace. When it worked, you might be ready to move on, but if not you might have to stay another day. I suppose that is why I did not get frustrated over the last 3 days of my ISP problems. I can indentify with that poor fool out there trying to fix things with everyone jumping up and down and anxious for the repairs.

AW, I spent the last 31 years of my life in IT and I can relate. I didn't go the Cab-over/pickup route but I did have a customized van that served me well. I still have some clients that have depended on me for 18 years now. Cracker Barrel and Dollar General are "zero downtime" shops and their POS systems can never, ever be down or people will walk out. Just a little pressure but it was rewarding. 1 & 1/2 years to go...

The pickup with the slide in camper is how we would choose to travel on a long trip. You definitely had the right idea! We've got our eye on one but now's not the time. It is really nice to have your things readily available and, ahem, especially that bathroom! Around september there were always accessible cornfields with reach up and grab corn cobs, but a person gets tired of that!
About those hens of mine. What you said about consistent weather and all makes a lot of sense. I have laying pellets that I feed them and I also throw out a couple handfuls of scratch everyday. I just don't keep a barrel of crickets on hand! Lol. It seems my grandson enjoys that part soooo, more power to him!!

That is why I chose the pickup with the slide in camper. I had a rack built to hold the camper when I was not traveling for work, and still had the pickup the rest of the time for lumber, firewood, towing my boat and such. A tag-a-long camper and a boat are not very compatible. LOL Have a good day. Chicken feeding time.

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the engine of a Harley Davidson motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question?"

The surgeon a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So, Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running!"

I have not been in IT for 3 years and with the ever changing technology, it would be difficult for me to give any valid directions as to today's work force requirements. But an Associates degree might (emphasize might) be a good place to start.

I personally came up through the ranks as a software developer and primarily picked up the hardware aspect through the school of hard knocks.

Misty,

Tell your son the Ubuntu/Linux IS the future of computing. Look for a wave of anti Microsoft emotion in the market plus, Windows is proprietary, regardless of their market share. Tell him to learn a little about Storage Attached Networks (SAN) and he'll do very well!
