Hey Sam,

Thanks for the invite.

Sometimes it is just plain fun to have somewhere with a lot of things going on all at once.

I am goofing off, waiting for Mr. Boomer to finish mowing so we can run away together.

I had planned to work in the yard, but Spring just can't make up her mind whether she is here to stay or not. Usually by now, I have been able to do my Red Queen Routine and run out into the yard with the pruning shears while I shout, "Off With Their Heads," and go after the Knockout roses. It is just too cold out there -- still.

But at least the grass is now officially green. And Mr. B can be out there with his beloved ZTR. It is just like that commercial that is running on television right now with the guys all firing up their mowers. We all live on acre lots so they ride usually.

Sometimes Mr. Boomer mows for the neighbors, too, just for fun, and it always makes them happy when they get home from work to find a perfectly mowed yard. They all still work. We are the only geezers. The early retirees. The slackers. But our younger neighbors have said that they will watch out for our house when we finally get to spend some time in Florida. So it all works out.

Mr. Boomer loves to mow grass. I don't even know how. So that is happy talk, too.

So there's my contribution for the Happy Hijacker. Thanks.

Enjoy your day out there in TOTVland.

Boomer

My significant other is my dog Sport. He would probably get a little bored with the talk at TOTV as it would not be about how other dogs' butts smell and whether or not he has missed marking such and such a spot as his territory. :joke:

Thanks Sam, another great idea for our TOTV chatfolk. BTW, we had two perspective buyers here today. One we knew was coming as we were called yesterday; the other called this morning from a different realtor to say they too wanted to see the house . They missed each other by minutes. It seemed they both liked what they had seen. Barbara and I later ran into the real estate agent at Genuardi's who brought one of the couples to our home. She said they liked our house the best, but who knows. At least they are coming out to look now. So all of you "hope to sell our house soon" people hang on. Thanks again Sam for a post where we can vent and share.....Johnny

Fingers are tightly crossed for you J&B. You belong in TV.

Sam I am so glad you put up this thread. I have a really hard time with the lineal thinking required to stay on topic...I guess I get bored quickly, besides the topic lasts longer when we can vary the content. Example Girl Talk, it is still going and I bet this one will too. :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:

I'm happy tonight because my daughter only has a kidney infection and not appendicitis as the hospital thought at 5am this morning. She's spending the night there but that's okay. She's being waited on hand and foot, having her dinner served to her in bed, and getting some rest with the help of morphine.

She's coming home tomorrow but I took the rest of the week off from school. Why? So I could watch her 2 little boys (ages 2 and almost 4) and spoil them rotten while they are here at Tamma and Bubba's (that's what they call us) house. We decided to let her go home to a quiet house without having to worry about taking care of the little sweethearts. Not sure if her husband will wait on her like the nurses at the hospital, though!

Well, better get back downstairs. I hear the boys "fighting" over toys and I think Bubba needs my help.

From no small about of research, I have learned the secret to that phenomenon of which Taltarzac speaks, dogs smelling each others butts.

It is a dog's way of determining what meal the other dog has enjoyed. It's like asking, "Hey! How's the food over at your place."

Perhaps it would help to think of it as our equivalent to a restaurant review.

Hey, sorry we'll be missing you guys at Crispers day after tomorrow; we're already back up north 'dealing' with everything here. Will be back in June and in the meantime hope to do a lot of laughing! '-)
