Somethings Old...Somethings New!

"Carrie"  aka Darby Creek Carrera:  She is annoyed that she hasn't been mentioned yet in my blog.  She's always within eyesight of me and is a cuddler.   She is CH. Patrick's daughter.  
Hi all!

This will be a brief post, but I promise I'm working on several things.  More on this in a few paragraphs.

Something New! A friend Catherine told me about a website called "Pinterest" that looks to be pretty cool!  It is kind of a cyber bulletin board where folks post anything from artwork to recipes and anything in between.  It takes about a day once you request to be invited, but you really ought to give it a look-see.  It's

The "Sophie Scandal":

She must have made her "choice" because other then a few dents, I've been getting 6 to 8 "good eggs" a day.  I make sure they never run out of food and try to do treats often.  I put berber carpet on the floor of the nesting boxes to perhaps soften the landing of the eggs, but I had already gone a few days without a problem.  Good girl Sophie!  I now have eggs out the wazoo (at least theirs LOL) so now I have to figure ways to use them.  Mark is getting tired of egg sandwiches every morning.  Got 11 eggs on 3/4/12 which means everyone is laying!!!

STEP INTO MY OFFICE:  Wherever that may be...I assure you that I hate getting dirty and am grossed out easily, so these will not put "Dirty Jobs" off the air.

I've been a substitute teacher (all grades and abilities) for 11 years, so almost nothing scares me:)  Though my goal with that is to always keep things from happening that are newsworthy, I'm sure I will probably post on it later. For now I plan to try new "jobs" or activities and report back how-tos and how it went (along with photos.)  I also plan to toss in my experiences as a movie extra/ bit part player, office temp in Los Angeles and other "odd jobs."  I've applied to do a 7 day, 70 hour stint as a car test driver (aka "Crash Test Dummy")in a few weeks and got a call for an interview, but first I will be serving as an...
Election Poll Worker

On the face of it, this doesn't sound to awfully funny, especially since I went to the training session.  I did laugh when I got the pink card assigning me as "Judge."  What?  Turns out pollworkers are called judges.  I will try to report details without giving away any government secrets!  I can't wait to be at the precinct dark and early at 5:30 a.m.  We might be there as late as 9 p.m. for a day rate of $100.  We aren't allowed computers, newspapers or cell phones.  They warned us that this will be a s-l-o-w day as there are no issues in most precincts and it's not a presidential election.  What have I gotten myself into???? Well, I am proud to help folks exercise their right to vote, so here goes...

(Note to self:  Buy some 5-hour energy drinks!)

Well, hope you'll stay tuned!  Would really appreciate it if you "follow" this blog.  I have a lot more readers than it appears and would like to have a more accurate count:)

Until next time,

  1. You are becoming such a well rounded woman Gale. I am glad to hear about the chicken though and that she is providing food for you rather than becoming food. :)
