Lunch time… Had a french kruller for breakfast, and a milk. (no oj!!! I need juice!)

For lunch… I dunno. wherever they go, I’ll order something. I’m hoping for chinese or thai… been doing tacobell too much lately. If they hit fast food, I can get a tasty slushie.

The last free-roaming panthers in North America can be found in south
Florida’s Everglades.  These beautiful, tawny beasts are the Florida
panthers, of which only 30-50 remain in the wild.

Because Florida panthers require unspoiled territories that are many
miles across, the continuing human development of the Everglades and
Big Cypress wetlands has dramatically reduced their numbers.
Recently, study programs have been locating and tracking the animals,
and large tracts of land have been added to the protected parklands
in an effort to help preserve their home ranges.

Between wetlands restoration, panther tracking and study, and captive
breeding programs, it might be possible to rescue the Florida
panthers from extinction.  As top predators in the South Florida
ecosystem, the panthers’ numbers reflect the success or failure of
the entire Everglades restoration effort.

Red Rubber Ball
( The Cyrkle )

I should have known you’d bid me farewell
There’s a lesson to be learned from this and I learned it very well
Now I know you’re not the only starfish in the sea
If I never hear your name again, it’s all the same to me

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

You never cared for secrets I’d confide
For you I’m just an ornament, somethin’ for your pride
Always runnin’, never carin’, that’s the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all you had to give

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

The story’s in the past with nothin’ to recall
I’ve got my life to live and I don’t need you at all
The roller coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears, that’s all I’m gonna spend

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

Oh, oh, oh
I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

Looks like another taco bell dinner for me tonight. 3 bean burritos, cimnim twisties and waterwater water. Yum.

I have to work late (past my old hours, I’m guessing) to get a client online and happy with his data. Nutbunnies. Why does it have to be ‘I need it right now, but can’t give you info until tomorrow’? Makes no sense. “I want a car” Cool… what material do you want, fiberglass or steel? “I don’t know, I’ll tell you tomorrow, when I see it.” Wha?

Sometimes folks make no sense. S’ok, though. tomorrow’s Friday. 🙂

Welcome to my wall scrawls.
