((LOL))Well, I don't know if you saw the results of the quiz I just posted but...

Um, not much is going on. I got much better sleep last night. The weather here in SW OK was a little more quieter than it was the night before when we had so many weather warnings issued.

Been doing some help with the folks on Twitter concerning efforts by the left to have the husband of one of the best conservative pundits taken off Twitter. Here's some info on what went down went that. Thankfully due to a tremendous amount of pressure by the #TCOT's we got this fella's Twitter back for him.

Ben taking Bo out to the lake for some catch and having a great time out there. Planning to go to Waurika Lake later today.

Not much else is going on except for some nice cool weather here in SW OK this morning.

Hiya Ma, is your snow all gone?

You Are the Space Heater
You are a positive, comforting influence. You make others feel comfortable and at ease.
Your biggest regret is not being able to help as many people as you'd like.

You blend in well, and you don't like to make waves. You prefer to stay out of trouble.
People love you just the way you are - flaws and all. You never claimed you were perfect.

Good morning, Pro ((HUGS))

Weather isn’t too bad but it is not as good as last week. Co-worker and I did get in a walk this morning.

I’m hoping our weekend turns out nice, weather wise. We have a cookout to go to on Sat.

Sounds like a nice weekend with son-boy. Still trying to get to the beach?

Have a summerlicious day

Good morning, Pro...((HUGS))...most of the lawn snow is gone. But there are still big piles where the plows pushed snow up into the yard...it’s on its way out! Looking for bids for spring clean-up...it will require RAKING AND RAKING AND RAKING AND BAGGING AND BAGGING AND BAGGING. My Dad is no longer able, and I just do not have the time.

Did I see your son will be visiting this weekend? Kite flying at the beach? Basketball games? A little baseball?

Does this remind you of someone...IT SHOULD

By the time the Lord made woman, he was into His sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, “Why are you spending so much time on this one?”

And the Lord answered, “Have you seen My spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart — and she will do everything with only two hands.”

The angel was astounded at the requirements. “Only two hands!? No way! And that’s just on the standard model? That’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish.”

But I won’t,” the Lord protested. “I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to My own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND she can work 18 hour days.”

The angel moved closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.”

“She is soft,” the Lord agreed, “but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.”

Will she be able to think?” asked the angel.

The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate.”

The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman’s cheek. “Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one.”

That’s not a leak,” the Lord corrected, “that’s a Tear!” “What’s the tear for?” the angel asked.

The Lord said, “The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride.”

The angel was impressed. “You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing.”

And she is!! Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice.

They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can help to heal a broken heart.

Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.

They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning! They bring joy and hope. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital Things to say and everything to give.

However if there’s one flaw in women, it is that they tend to forget their worth.

Hi, Ma!

Kids are doing fine. Getting back to their ancestral roots with the change in the weather. More hunting and dining in their private reserves and pieces of turf. Even some trophies present.

I’m a Vacuum Cleaner?!!

You are meticulous and extremely clean. You don’t like to leave messes lying around.
You are unwavering and brave. You do what needs to be done, even if it isn’t popular.

You tend to be controlling, and you hate leaving anything up to chance. You leave your mark on everything.
You trust yourself to know what’s right and what’s wrong. You are willing to go against the tide.

Jack.

“But Lord,” the angel said, “why only two feet when there are all those shoes?”

Good afternoon and (((HUGS))). We got the pup back home from the doggie retreat about 945 today. She was elated to see us come to pick her up.

The eye is much better today, thanks - back to PT again tonight. Will probably be late getting into the Canteen this evening.

Have 2 air conditioners, one 12,500 BTUs, the other 14,500.

I’m lucky that I have 2 dedicated lines, so I can get higher power.

I’m guessing air conditioning in Alaksa is pretty redundant.

I don’t imagine that most people have air conditioning...altho I know lots of cars do.

Open the windows and doors...let the breezes blow. d:o)

Stay cool!!
