Went to town yesterday and one of the things I picked up was a new mini blind for the bedroom. Dog ate the last one when I went outside and she didn't. She wanted to see out so she removed the blind. haha Anyhow, I got the wrong length. At the store, the rack holding the size I needed, the first box had been opened. So I moved it and took the second box. Didn't notice but somebody had put the wrong size in that rack so I grabbed the wrong size. So I have to go to town again today to exchange it for the proper size.

That's ok though. Last nights paper has an add in it. One of the local grocery stores is running a sale on Pork Chops. $1.29 a lb. Think I'll just have to stock up. haha Last time this store had pork chops on sale, all of them were cut thick, 3/4 inch. That's the way I like them.

No snow last night, but temps in the teens this morning.

Coffee's on.

Tellya one thing I learned about miniblinds... get the metal ones, not plastic. The plastic ones deteriorate in the sun. Mine are about 8 years old and they're so fragile already they break when you touch 'em. Good thing I don't have a house cat anymore!

hahaha I did. My whole cabin is wood grain, tongue and groove. Knotty pine. So I even bought blinds that were wood grain. Used to have white ones. If you wanted to take a nap during the day, the house was brighter with the blinds down then if you raised them out of the way. So I bought metal ones, not from deteriation, but to shut out the light better.

Watch. When I get to town they won't have any in that length. They did yesterday, but today they'll be out, just because I'm driving 20 miles to get them.

I just hung 9 of the double cell honeycomb blinds, I think they are 'partial darkening'. Our kitchen has an array of windows facing south/southwest and last summer when we moved into the house the kitchen was ROASTING hot. We have a portable A/C that could barely keep up.. These buggers should keep the temps down..

I know the kitchen is easily 2 degrees warmer in cold weather because of them. Used to run 67-68 deg now it hangs tight at 71 deg.

I told you. They were out. They had the bright white ones, but I didn't want them. So I went to Home Depot. They don't carry that size. So now I wait until Wally World gets some more in. Whatever year that will be.

Damnit. Number 5, for this year, passed away eariler tonight. His son made his first phone call to me. He died at home, in his own bed, all 3 kids were at his side.

What the hell is going on this year? I am not liking it one bit.

This friend lives in Bradenton Florida, so I won't be going. He's been "at home hospice" for 9 months so it wasn't like we didn't see it coming. Also, he's a vet, but so is his son and his son and I discussed what he needed to do. So, at least with this one, I don't need to get involved.

I'm telling you, this has been a rough year.

I'm sorry EH.. We lost our Dad a couple years ago, a WWII vet.. It's tough. Good man.. No GREAT man..

That's why we moved here- to be closer to the ones we love the most. God speed to your friends.

I just saw an optimist towing a boat on the Laurel webcam. I guess it's summer in Billings.

Hey Seven, I have a sheet for a dining room curtain -- it's got big red and orange stripes and matches my hanging lamp. I actually like it. Such is the decor at Casa de Rez.
