My, aren't YOU a hardy soul!

Coming in here, with the full knowledge that I've quit posting anything.

Well, anything except stuff like this--

Office pictures, again! This was from last Friday after I'd finally gotten a bit of free time to finally get all my kid artwork installed. (It's dark outside due to a thunderstorm rumbling by at the time.)

Anyway, here's one:

And the other:

As for the new job, I like it, I think. It's still a bit hard to get a handle on some things like procedures and junk. I have my own recollections of how an architect's office is supposed to run, and some of those still work, but some don't. And there's this whole thing of being really busy one minute, and then getting gunshy about something else that has to be done immediately, and then it never comes around, so you relax a bit, and then BAM! something else hits the door. It'll take some getting used to, that's for sure.

As for the goings-on at Casa de Possum, pretty much the same as it's always been, although with the added hoopla of trying to get a new fence built. The kids have been bugging me forever to get one so we can get a doggy, and we've finally managed to be able to afford something, so I've been trying to get folks lined up to survey the property lines, mark the utilities, and give us a somewhat reasonable price, and I've also got to get the silly thing approved by our neighborhood association, which could be a pain in the kiester.

Anyway, now I've got to go do something again. Thanks for dropping by!

(By the way, the sandwich of the day is smoked Cajun sausage on home-made cathead biscuit.)

I like the picture of the vase with the sunflowers. Is that one of Cat's?

Yes it is. It was crammed in her backpack sometime last year and I fished it out and hung it up.

Gives the joint a little class.

I'm glad the stuffed possum toy made the journey safely. How's the new job treating you?

My oldest gave me a calendar for Christmas that has his own "artwork" for each month on the page that gets flipped up. Obviously it is themed for each month (for August it is "grilling"). Your display has inspired me to help class up my own joint (or should I say tomb/closet/server room) with "art by yutes".

I hope you can get the job requirements down a little better in the next few weeks so as to get a better idea if and when a blog-thang is still possible.

[PS Not so "weak" anymore!]

Well, if the last five minutes are any indication, this is going to be about as regular as I can manage...

Mon oh Mon I wantz a big ol drafting table sompin aweful. Just no place to put it. Um, I could go out and buy a bigger condo I suppose though. Erm, that'd just be more room for Miss Tobiko to shed in. *sigh*

Nice digs! And nice artwork too. I asked for, and received my Grandpa's old drafting table after he died. Its a treasure. It sat in his bedroom for as long as I can remember and I love it.

Keep sneaking in the posts!

Jim, what the cat don't know won't hurt him.

Tony, Nate, it's a nice table, but not nearly as sweet as the old solid oak Mayline I had upstairs. I'm gonna find a way to snag that one again someday. I should have moved it a couple of weeks ago when I moved, but didn't think I'd miss it.
