Girls night Christmas Party

Friday night and about 20 GREAT girls are having their annual Christmas party. Can’t imagine what the conversation is about…..

All I know is that they are good friends….and having a good time together. The group has been together for years and reciprocate with a party at Lisa’s in Port Dover in the summer. Good girls, all of them.

Here at my place…..a good movie and some decent wine.

Watched  John Skow today at work…he is a good man.  He puts his heart into his judgements… impresses me constantly.

Met  Mike Barry at the Chapters store the other night. I think he is one of the best lawyers in the city….no doubt. A really NORMAL guy….and a professional as well.  Inducted into the UWO sports “Hall of Fame” about a year or two ago.   Impressive….

Tomorrow night is Steve Dubarry’s (probably spelled it wrong) Christmas party. I think that I will go with Mo, as my reasons for not going are weak. …..

Still up at 1:20 am….go figure.

Little bit ‘o snow on the ground…..not much.

Sad to see that Paul Carter died in the last few weeks….weird how you see someone every few days or so, and all of a sudden they are gone from the earth.

Listening to Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” right now…..1:30 am….

…trying to make some front page drive in news……

…livin by the sword….

……you get it.

Tomorrow gets me walking the dog…..in the sun.   Good stuff.  Fresh air, exercise  and all that…..

Just a few more thing to get for Christmas…and then just the seasonal food things.

…with autumn closin in….

…night moves….night moves.

Got a Netbook

I’ve been looking for a netbook computer for a while. I think I need one for “the trip”. To do banking and e-mails and such. Isn’t it strange how we think we can’t get along in today’s world without all the “gadgets”?  Just think….20 years ago (or whenever it was “pre-net”), you could go on a sojourn with just your back-pack full of clothes and such. And send a LETTER….  :) Anyway, after a lot of comparison, I settled on an ASUS machine that has the latest wireless tech and “Windows 7″. Should do the trick. Spent this week loading pertinent software onto it to allow the day to day to occur. While I am on that bend…..I might have to change the look of the website to allow for blog updates. (as the blog is published on a Mac…..and the netbook is Windows based.) We’ll see.

Went to the annual “chili bash” at the Byron Legion last Saturday. Had fun, Mo entered a chili but didn’t take the trophy…. (Won a “Coor’s Light T shirt).  :)

Almost forgot to include this pic of me and 2 great buddies…..     The “Three Amigos”… someone said there was a resemblance…

Went on a “lightning” trip to ‘Dover tonight to get supplies for Mo’s Girls Christmas Party.

Plan on putting up the Christmas decorations tomorrow. With or without snow…..
