Detour

Well, Linda and I were supposed to have today and tomorrow off from work but when the phone rang at 8:55 this morning we knew it wasn't going to be good. One of the assistants called off so Linda is at work since the other assistant is fairly new and doesn't know how to do the office work very well. I'm working around the rig, silconing the gaskets, etc., made a trip to Sam's Club and just might squeeze in a nap this afternoon. :) Good thing we didn't make plans for today.....our schedules have been altered anyway due to the one assistant taking classes on the weekend so is even a little more annoying when she calls off so Linda gets one less day off this week. Oh well....that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Weather is cool and crisp today but bright sunshine and I sure like 53 degrees as opposed to 39 and rainy. Marked improvement over the last couple days. This morning on Good Morning America we watched Ingrid Michaelson perform a song from her new album. Listen to some of her stuff...I love it cause it's quirky, fresh and upbeat. Good stuff !!

Boomer and I are off to Home Depot to see if we can find something to put over the water hose to give it some protection. It is taking a real beating with these huge trucks driving over it. It has already sliced up the outer casing in several spots and I've had to put gorilla tape on it to protect it PLUS we unhook the hose every morning and reconnect when we come home at night. Would be nice to not have to do that...will see how expensive a hose "bridge" is and if a place like Home Depot or Lowes has them. If anybody has any ideas on where to get them or how to rig up a home-made one, I'm up for suggestions. We have a heavy duty commercial water hose but with trucks like large wrecker roll-offs and large Penske trucks driving over it, it's like driving over a spaghetti strand....turns to mush in a hurry !
