Monday doodle

General purpose day today, ran to the post office, grabbed some pocket cash to tip the clerk that shopped our groceries, picked up said groceries, ran some laundry, did a little light housecleaning, and now Pearl and I are folding said laundry on the couch. Well, I’m folding,she just quit sitting on the warm towel I just laid out to get a snack.

While out and about, I noticed the painted pig was repainted with some sorority or fraternity letters on the side, but did not get a moment to stop and photograph it. Maybe tomorrow I will get a shot, of I get out after my Tuesday hubbub.

Good morning, Chris.

Went with Mrs and inlaws to Chris’s Coffee and Custard for a noontime snack. 3 out of four of us had gastric distress shortly thereafter, so I doubt if we will be back.

I suspect we will get coffee sometime soon to meet @maximillian_deersteak daily requirements for a seasonal bean beverage. Frozen peppermint mocha until the next season hits.

A child is missing fails

What a shame that a child is missing is doing such a poor job that they are getting consistantly failing marks on charity navigator.

They have the potential to do such good works but if they fail at accountability and finance (and they have for at least a decade now), it is time for a different one to step in and do things right.

Thanksgiving in a week

The family

So, what is everyone doing for Thanksgiving next week? (Or if not part of that holiday, whatcha up to next Thursday?)

Inlaws are in town, so I’ve been running around a little bit, getting some last minute hubbub taken care of before they come over. A little vacuum, a little car wash, taking recycling to the center.

Current doodle : just a little stream of thought regarding the coming holiday. I am guessing the fire we are all staring at will be the Virginia Tech game or the fireplace and that the food will be delicious. I got a digital antenna but I expect we are more likely to watch the game on ESPN. I was surprised to see how many channels we can pick up! We are set, in case the internet goes down but want to watch local TV (or weird old episodes of murder she wrote, or QVC….)

Today’s doodle, Trees

#doodle #trees #rush

There is unrest in the forest

Trouble with the trees

For the maples want more sunlight

And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples

(And they’re quite convinced they’re right)

They say the oaks are just too lofty

And they grab up all the light

But the oaks can’t help their feelings

If they like the way they’re made

And they wonder why the maples Can’t be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest And the creatures all have fled

As the maples scream, “Oppression”

And the oaks just shake their heads So the maples formed a union And demanded equal rights

They say, “The oaks are just too greedy We will make them give us light”

Now there’s no more oak oppression For they passed a noble law

And the trees are all kept equal By hatchet, axe, and saw

Spy monkey army builders allow you to mix and match wonderfully! The new tiki and bear heads work very nicely. #battletribes #battletribeswrestling #modulartoys #glyos #glyoscompatible #tiki #bear #toyphotography

Whatcha dreaming about, Pearl? That girl sure loves to snooze on her papasan chair and watch the road in front of the house, once the sun beams cross into the red room. Whatever she is dreaming of, she sure is comfy while she does it. #doodle #roanokeva #misspearl #dreams #tabbycatsofinstagram #stripedcatsofinstagram #catsofinstagram
