Joan Wins A Prize!!!August 26, 2008
Howdy y’all. Anyone wonder where I’ve been? I had my verizon DSL go bye-bye and the very nice verizon tech spent 2 hours today getting me all hooked up again. So, it wasn’t my PC this time – who’d-a’thunk?
Last Friday, I went to Maine – had a wonderful time. On Sunday, car dies on highway just shy of 10 miles from home (it was the fuel injector pump thingy), and once we finally fell back into our house, I was desperate to check my email and my blog but… no internet. Seriously, the not having blog-email-google-CONNECTION was worse than the car dying on 24; we were stranded on the side of the road for over an hour…
Plus, the fun of having it towed to my auto repair specialist AND having them find NOTHING WRONG. After giving it the once-over and telling us they couldn’t find anything, they finally took it out on the road and it died for them, too. HA!
Plus, I had jury duty Monday. I was there with about 200 others for impanelment and with 2 seats left on the jury to fill when they chatted with me about my ‘indifference and impartiality’ to the concept of whether or not sex offenders can be rehabilitated, I was released. whew. I am SOOOO glad I wasn’t selected. I really am if full support of us doing our civil duty but why can’t it be for a simple credit card fraud or something? I’ll try to work up my talent for indifference and ability to be impartial in 3 years when they call me again.
I did manage to read 3 books while away from blogging. And I’m half way through a fourth.
So, why does Joan win a prize? Because, when I logged into my GoogleReader this afternoon, Joan’s blog Whatever I Think had SEVEN posts to read! that was the most. Congratulations!
and her prize? She wins the privilege of taking me to the beach this week. hee hee. We’re having a mini-Mass-blogger convention. Can’t wait! and I’m sure she’ll blog about it and share WHO ELSE will be joining us!!! unless that person spills the beans as well.
Finally, I leave you with a few pics from my weekend. You know I love blue sky. and flowers…
