First off, hat's off to McDonald's. I don't really eat there, but I do love their coffee.  I got a cup of coffee that was, unbelievably, SCALDING hot.  I mean, the touch your lips to it and burn type of hot.  I love it that way!  An obvious error, of course, most places do not sell hot coffee anymore, they sell just above lukewarm coffee because of the stupid people that will sue if they get burned by - what else - HOT coffee.

I get funny looks from both employees and customers at convenience stores when I take a cup of freshly poured coffee and stick it in the microwave for 40 seconds. I also get asked if the coffee is cold?  No, not cold, just not anywhere NEAR hot enough for my likes.  Oh.

Apparently my trees think it's Spring.  They are putting out new buds all over the place.  I need to go out front and check the real deciduous tree - it loses all of it's leaves during winter. No, after a quick check, the pear tree does not yet concur, it's not Spring yet.  I was examining the Sissoo trees, however, and there are new buds coming out all over the place on them.  Perhaps the pear tree just needs another good watering.

Which reminds me, I need to redo most of the front yard drip system.  I had to pull out a lot of lines to get the landscaping project I was doing out there - done.  Much of it is undone and it will take some time to get it all put back together again. Not a problem, per-se, I still have 1,000 feet of 1/4 tubing and plenteous emitters, just have to get out there and get it done.

So, tomorrow going to be working.  Tonight I am doing nothing.  Well, I am watching the Star Trek movie. It's the last one they made.  Whether they will make another one, who knows.

Well into February and I still don't have that trailer done.
Oh well.  I plan on working on that thing this weekend and trying to get most of the roof over and done with.
Oh, it's Friiiiiiiiiday!!
I don't have much this morning.  Head a bit foggy.  Got the computer back and now? I can't find my carrying case for it.  How do I lose a big case like that?!!  Well I can't take it to work with me without it.

But, I can never see replacing a desk top with a  laptop altogether.  My desktop runs circles around that laptop, even though I did get a fairly good setup with that laptop.  I haven't tried plugging it into the modem directly instead of doing everything through the air card, though, I am guessing that makes a difference. \

Well, I am wordless this morning - mind got on work, there is a lot to do today and I am way over hours, meaning trying to get it all done and still get off early.

Not that I WANT to give up those hours, lol.



Happy Independence Day to everyone! Beautiful day in northeast Texas. Well, it's hot and humid but oh well lol. Good day to re-read th...
