These fine, upstanding people have very diverse jobs. Can you figure out who does what? It's your job to match the career to the correct person. We have an aircraft mechanic, a wine and whiskey salesman, assistant director of a day care, a cop and a welder........WHO'S WHO?

Candid Carrie is hosting another one of her Phriday Photo Phiesta's so we (I) decided to join in.
When in Rome....... Larry and I at the "Trailer Park" Restaurant-Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - May 2008
Those drinks on the table are called "Michelada's. A MUST for us beer drinkers.
Wipe the rim of a chilled glass with lime and salt the rim.
Squeeze fresh lime juice into the glass. (Come on, squeeze some real limes not the crap in a bottle) I use one lime to a glass
Fill'er up with your beer of choice
Stir and top off with ice
They ROCK! Great beverage. Give it a try!

Well, we survived Sistah Dolly. Today was actually worse than yesterday. It just rained all day, some of it pretty darn heavy, but heaven knows we needed that. The deer aren't exhaling dust anymore (just geraniums).
Got the hubby home from the hospital today. Yesterday was really a good day for him (except for the foley catheter part). Today was miserable for him. He said he hurt all over and he couldn't pee. Apparently when they put him under for the surgery, they put his bladder under also and it didn't wake up until around noon today......how rude. Then when he was able to pee, it hurt like hell from being cathed. Poor baby. Anyway, he's home and in his recliner and very uncomfortable. We're both exhausted..................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Anyhoooo..............we needed rain and by golly............we got some rain. Here's some pictures I took from the hospital throughout the day.
This was taken from the penthouse suite at the hospital in Katy, Texas, just west of Houston. I apologize for the blinds, but they were installed in between 2 panes of glass. All I could do was open then and close them. You can see some of the *rain bands*
Ya'll have a good day!
South Padre Island, Texas
I'm coming to save you from the Hurricane Sandi!!!
Hang in there!!!!!
So..........is there a relationship here? Jennifer is my ex-sister-in-law.....that's a relationship isn't it?
Jennifer (Minnesota) is getting tornadoes and I'm (Texas) getting hurricanes. Of course there's a relationship!!!! We have a *connection*. To me, a tornado is a skinny, compact hurricane and hurricane is a fatter version. I'm sure Weather Moose will tell you that a tornado and straight line winds are hard to differentiate.......debris may be the key there.
I know ALL about weather cause I had to take a weather course in my ground school class so I could learn to fly. That reminds me..........I need to launder my cape this evening.......it's a little dusty.
Everyone go over to Weather Moose's blog and take his weather quiz. It ROCKS!!!!

2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments
C O W S
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, . . . and we're not using it anymore.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.
