Riding on the passenger seat this morning.
The scooter is still down. Waiting on a part to arrive from Texas, then I get to fix it today.
Good Morning Squatters.
Hoping it didn’t come today, suppose to train milk & ragweed.
Today is the 18th Day of the 6th month in the 36th year of me.
I’ve got work today.
The word of the day is flak which is criticism; hostile; reaction; abuse.
I washed yesterday & today is ironing day.
A pretty good night. I watched a majority of Jack & Jill. Did you see the Dunkin’ Donuts commercial on the movie? That was funny we should run that in the stores.
I’m still waiting on the son to come up.
Have a goat Day.
