Dano fantastic shots and technical drawings thanks for sharing!!

Yeah, I wish those technical drawings came out better. It's really a cool system. I think I'll just stick to photography.

Glad you caught that.... That's exactly what was in my mind when I drew it!

Ya know.... either the cameras are just not picking it up.... or a pitiful number of fans brought brooms with them :confused:
I noticed that too...I think I've only seen about 10 total.
Do you guys always stay up this late?
Me sometimes...normal time to get up is 545 if I go to the office...640 if I am working from home.
You forget that I don't have TV, and I would have to google to know what you were talking about.

Still.....

I wish I was watching the game. :p I feel like such a loser... I'm the kid who couldn't afford the ticket, and is sitting outside the stadium listening, but can't see anything. :lol:
Roaming Gnome is from the Travelocity commercials....BTW, if you go to that hole in the fence, you can see the game ;)

Well said Beth. I really love early morning, my mind is fresh, the air outside is crisp. It is the time of day that makes one really feel alive. I love rising early when out in the back country, making a coffee and just sitting there alone, doing nothing but enjoying the sounds of nature, feeling glad to be alive. :)

I too usually have a 10 minute nap every day, it is worth at least an hours sleep at night. :)
You need help, that is sick.:p I think Jim does too:rolleyes: Wackos
The gym here does not open until 5:00, that is when I go. But, only 2-3 times a week. I feel lethargic after late afternoon and really don't enjoy it as much. Besides, it gets real busy then with all the posers. ;)
I go to the gym at 11 or around there. Before lunch. :lol: NOT before breakfast. That's just weird.
You callin' me weird...
...Ya, ok, I can live with that. :)
Besides, I have some breakfast before I go. One needs to get the metabolism kick started before working out.

Here it is 2:30 in the morning, I accidentally fell asleep before 10:00 last night, watching the ball game while lying in bed reading. That is way too early for someone who shoots for 5-6 hours of sleep (plus the daily nap) ;).

The Juice is going down

It's about damn time!

Aww, poor Lonnie. I just put a couple extra boxes of Kleenex on the shelf for ya.

Thanks. I'll need them. ;)

Eli got his first library card today, he was *so* excited!

Yay! I practically lived in the library when I was a kid.

Dang dog had to go to the bathroom, but didn't want to go outside 'cause she would get wet!!

Awwwww... :D

That size discrepancy has always amused me. Obviously *my* cup of coffee is a tad different from the manufactures expectations. Out of my 12 cup pot, I actually get around 8.

I think my 12 cup pot only gets me about four cups... My mug is a little bit large.

I've always been straight forward with him about time off and such... honesty really does go a long way.

My boss has been known to rearrange the work schedule so I could go hiking. Of course, it helps that he loves to hike, himself. He's gone on treks with me before, too.

And don't even get me started on Beetle Baily or BC!

How about Rose is Rose? I used to like that one, but I can't even tolerate it now. It's just horrible.

or Get Fuzzy :-D

Hey, hey, hey! That is one of my favorites! That one and Frazz are two reasons why I visit comics.com first thing every day.

I get up at 3:00 or 3:30.... this is *really* late!!

You're all wimps!!! ;)

I am often in bed before 1:00AM but often not. I have bizarre sleep hours.

There's someone who understands.

I felt like such a slacker yesterday. That was the first time in ages I slept for more than four hours in a single stretch. I actually was still in bed when my alarm clock went off at 10:30pm. That just never happens any more! I often wonder why I still even set the alarm, but I'm glad I do. It came in handy that time...

Beautiful, Beth, most definetly, book worthy. CONGRATULATIONS on your team. What an exciting run they are having.

Hope you were able to get up and moving in time this morning. I can pull a couple of late nights during the week as long as I get my normal sleep in between.

I love rising early when out in the back country, making a coffee and just sitting there alone, doing nothing but enjoying the sounds of nature, feeling glad to be alive.

Add the smell of an outdoor breakfast cooking after that first mug of coffee, it don't get much better.

I've never been to the east coast (well not since I was an infant and I'm sure it's changed a lot in 40 years:lol:). But I'm not surprised, it's probably more like the California coast than OR and WA.

I'm having anxiety. Not wedding anxiety...just real world anxiety.

I've spent my last 20 yrs as a stay at home mom. But now my kids are gone. I'm bored with too much time on my hands. But I've been out of the work force for 20 yrs., hence my employability is really limited. So, I've considered going back to school....but budget wise, that'd be tight...however, it'd help in the long run (I'm hoping anyway) and give me a skill for the next 20 years of my life.

My anxiety? I haven't been to school in 22 years. I hate change....

I'm going with my aunt today to check out the local CC and it's making me ill. And yet, I don't want to sit around and do nothing for the rest of my life...

If money is not the issue there are tons of volunteer things you can get involved in. You could look into more things to do photography wise for profit. Low pressure stuff like taking small shooting jobs without the pressure of wedding type jobs. You have real photography talent so rather than going to school to learn a new talent you could expand on the ones you have.

When I was there we always needed help , photography was one area and just muscle ..

Not at all, we might only have to turn away half the work that comes to us instead of 3/4's is all. :) We do try to arrange that most work is interior (hold of kitchens, baths and interior remodels and the such) but we do get lots of mild spells where much of the exterior work can be done in the winter anyway.

Part of me really wishes it would slow down, but I am a victim of my own making. :rolleyes:

I was enjoying the game then at 5AM I woke up!:confused: I missed the end of the game and I don't even know what inning I last saw :lol: So now...the American League has to finish out the series...hopefully the BoSox ;).

Phew.

And, I wanted to post this last night. We nearly flooded again. This time the creek reached within 15ft of our apartment. :shock:
Evan had many, many ear infections...got to the point one time where the Pediatrician said to stop laying him flat on his back when he is drinking from a bottle as the sucking of the liquid leads to the development of the ear infection after awhile. We tried it and he ceased having ear infections...why did she not tell us sooner:confused:.

Are you getting that much rain there now?? I woke up this morning and it was really foggy today....thought it would rain, but never did.

After having our first kid in a day home for a couple months, my wife and me decided to bite the bullet and have her stay at home. Since this decision, the only paid job she has really had was working for me part time, and our kids were both in school by then. We are extremely glad we did this despite the lack of spare cash. I did make a reasonable living building and maintaining electrical substations. I did have to teach her how to cook ;), and she has since blossomed into a fantastic cook.

Thanks everyone for the encouragements. I actually ended up talking with a career counselor today. It was a first step (and one I can't believe I actually lived through:lol:) & I have another apt. on the 5th.

Zane, unfortunately, finances are a consideration. It used to be that Dan worked 2 jobs so that I could stay at home. Now he only works one and with all the expenses we've had lately (plus some toys) our savings is low with not much to build it up again. So, I have the time to work and the inclination but not the "training". And I don't want to work at a fast food joint or the mall :lol:

This is what we did. We both felt that it was worth not having the extra income to provide for the stability of the home and family. But now, I'm 40 and have no real skills. Photography is fun but I don't think I could ever turn it into a paying business (especially having no business skills). I may end up with school loans to pay but I think that school may be the best option for making me marketable at my age. And yeah, I do have a hammer but Dan never lets me play with tools...he always mumbles something about me causing serious harm or dismemberment. :lol:
