The New Member of the Family...

Please join me in welcoming Tree to the Harris family. I'm sure Karen will eventually tell you all about it. Yes, we did indeed acquire a Red Sunset Maple and located it in such a way that it should shade about half of our back yard once it fills out. (in about a decade! :)

Did you think I was announcing something else? HA!!! Anyway, There was a boatload of digging and a pretty serious amount of lifting done this weekend as I also installed an over-the-stove microwave oven on Saturday, the same day as the tree went in, and we had company today. There was a good bit of work that went into getting the house presentable for that occasion.

Let's see, what else... Oh! FYI, DO NOT write "wash me" on someone's car unless it's on the window. It actually scratches the finish and doesn't come off once the car is clean. No big worries, though I'm sure that a good waxing will fill in the scratches (surface scratches only) and make the car look really good. Maybe I'll re-clean Lizzzie (yes, 3 'Z's) some time this week and give her a good waxing. Then, the following week, I'll give a good cleaning and waxing to Karden. We'll see.

I'm tired and I really need to just go to bed early so I can at least partly recover from the weekend. I'm sure I'll be able to recover from the days off by going to work, right? :)

Anyway, I'm heading to bed. Tonight's silliness was brought to you by the word increment, the letters R, S, M, and the number 5.

3 more ramblings:

Yeah, I did the "Wash Me" thing on a little black Volkswagon Bug in college, and the poor guy didn't wash it all semester long. Guess what? When he finally washed it, the sun had lightly BLEACHED THE PAINT where I had written Wash Me and so the letters were there permanently in a lighter shade of gray. I would have felt worse only if he knew who had done it.... This was the guy in my dorm who got up one morning with a terrible hangover and NO IDEA where his car was. Turned out someone had found him passed out over the steering wheel 20 miles away and driven him back to the dorm. Fortunately, they had the sense to get his number and call him the next day to tell him where his car was! Nice guy, but not the pinnacle of responsibility. But heck, it was college!

I'm the guilty party on the "wash me" bit. Oops?

And btw, *sniff sniff*, I'm feeling rather left out.
