It's official...I'm losing my hearing..Babs and I went to Wacco for my hearing test. I had to take someone with me, she actually had a list of questions to answer..We were giggling and acting like 9 year olds..It was fun..up until I flunked the test and found out it would cost up to $6,000 ........If you want to know the details you have to go to Babs blog and read her post.
Well, it's all over but the teeth gnashing, weeping, pissing and moaning from the Clinton supporters...What a bunch of piss poor sports...jeez!...We all have to get together and kick McCain's wrinkled ole ass in November. Because our country can't stand 4 more years of the extended Bush Administration...fuckers..
I went to some garage sales this am..tried to get Babs to go with me but she's a wussy..But think the trip to Waco did her in..too many people, cars and not enough mustard for my corn dog...After I went to 3 garage sales I went to Gerik's Bakery, the one that makes the very best kolaches and got 2 kolaches for me. One blueberry and one cherry cream cheese. Then I got a cinnamon roll type roll but it's chocolate cake roll..and it's they were the size of soft balls..huge ...Got it for Babs to thank her for going with me to Wacco..as I know she hates being around that many people...They thought we were mother and daughter...
The other day at work some came in and was telling me how sorry they felt for me having to work with Inky, told them it's a dirty job but some body's gotta do it..and Inky said I'm the kind of person that you won't miss until I'm gone....I said well, that'll give me something to look forward too...Nice to get even with him for all the deaf jokes..He will say 'Jackie' and when I turn around he will start talking to me in sign language..fuckers..He and Tom will pretend to be speaking and just move their lips and I'm going 'what, what?'...bastids..
I'm off on the weekends and it's really great...I woke up at my normal time for work and that's cool too..no alarm..just 5 days of training..Also work up to find a tiny little headless baby meeces on the footstool by my chair..NOT what you want to see right before bacon and eggs..
I went to the memorial for Miss Henrietta last Sunday and it was a really nice turn out..they had the great portrait of her that will be right behind the desk where everyone can see it..They had cake and punch and all her family was there and all the grand kids..It was really nice..I turned in my key...figure if they want me they can find me..One of Henrietta's grand kids said that she had told him he could have the Gigantic Winnie the Pooh, so I gave it to him. He left a happy camper..They didn't want to ask for it if no one knew..I pretended I knew all about it and said he could have it...My good deed for the day. The best part is when Missy Sulak got up and (she's president of the Library Board and a city council member now) and did this tearful speech about her and Miss Henrietta and I had to bite my tongue to keep from cracking up laughing...Miss Henrietta couldn't stand Missy...she made fun of her and wrinkled up her face and made ugly faces when she would walk off...The thought of Missy up there like she and Miss Henrietta were big buds was just too fucking funny...I'm sure that Henrietta was cracking up laughing ...
I didn't go to the convention in Austin..Since it's all over with and I could care less which ass hole wins which district I opted to stay home and save my gas..
My Aunt Leola called..She's the 84 year aunt that still packs a gun..She says she keeps it in her car...Woe unto the little asshole that tries to carjack her..Plus her daughter bought her a new car..A brand new 2008 Red Mustang..She was carping about how much gas it used..I said well, just use it to drive to work(2 miles) and back and use your little Nissan the rest of the time..there was a long pause...'But I LIKE to drive my little red Mustang.'...haha..
I am really really enjoying my new shift..9-1PM...Monday-Friday. I get up at 7AM, pee test my sugar, eat, read the paper, do my cross word puzzles, read some emails and get dressed for work..I'm at work in less than 3 minutes. When I get off at 1PM I have time to run errands, go to bank, Drug Store, Post Office, etc. When I worked 2-8 I would stay up all night long sleep late and had no schedule so I didn't get much done...Now I'm usually asleep before the last guest on Letterman comes on. Life is good..Now if I could just find a inexpensive hearing aid that works..I'd really be fine..
This cartoon was in the last Sunday's paper...I loved it..
Going to go watch men's volleyball..nothing I like better than watching trim young men in bathing-suits chasing a ball around in the sand...Whoo doggies!
