Evening all.  Got water on the fire, and beans cookin'. Roll Eyes

Had a job interview this morning.  Went in, the interview was over in 15 minutes and I figured that with it so short, I wasn't going to get it.  Went to the local gun store, chatted a while, then came home.  I had just sat down to lunch when I got a call to inform me that I got the job.  Shocked
Went back down to the place, filled out a bunch of paperwork, got fingerprinted etc.  Tomorrow I'm going to the city for a pre-employment physical and a drug screening.  Then I should start work on the 19th.  Not a bad gig.

Walking back from the sheriff's dept.  where I got my fingerprints taken, and it started to drop the white stuff on me.  When I was walking home, it started really coming down.  Now we have almost two inches.

 Had an appointment with which doctor yesterday...
Yep,  I spelled that correctly "which doctor "  Roll Eyes
routine prescription look see  ...never see the same Doc or PA or seldom the same nurse twice...
Dr. Link  owns the practice , that has two location for " my " convenience  as it were    Undecided
Yeah,  the missing link  have yet to see her ever !   
this time it was Dr. Duncan (PA ) , never seen her before ,   some guy (PA) before that... Dr. Sarah Lemaster  before that, a year ago.
Back in the days,  I had Dr. Nystrum and had some rapport.   

I have found where Dr. Nystrum has joined another (partnered)  practice and I will reacquaint myself ( my Wife already has ) to that location.

I'm over, seeing a new yahoo every 6 months , and answer the same questions , the same ones they have on my chart !  time & time again.

Could be worse, Major.  It could have been a colonoscopy appointment. Shocked Roll Eyes

Morning all.  We have about 5 inches of the white stuff on the ground.  Loosely translated, that means, "Quick! Everyone drive into the ditch!"  Didn't get called for any Search and Rescue operations, but considering the cold I'm not upset about that.  Roll Eyes
Leaving for the city at 9:30 for doctor stuff.  The whole "turn your head and cough" deal.

Slim, it's entry level at the county Office of Education.  Technically "Custodian I."   $14.76/hour, working 8 hours a week.  Not a bad set up, though I question why it's 76 cents versus 75.

Good Day all.

The white stuff has mostly melted away in this part of the world.  Now we can start pulling more city slickers out of the ditches  Roll Eyes

Had an interesting occurrence yesterday.  Apparently a propane delivery driver didn't shut off the valve on the truck all the way, so he drove through town spewing liquid propane around.  Fortunately, nobody behind him tried to light a smoke.  Shocked

Now off to sign more paperwork.

We was in the low 20's this morning with about a half inch of the evil white stuff. took a broom to the drive, then went out early with my associate and proceeded to spread 35 80lb. bags of salt on the streets of this manufactured housing community. We have some fairly steep hills here and it don't take much for folks to get to slippy-sliding on them if they're not careful( imagine that!) Roll Eyes Shocked Undecided

Oh, yeah, happy Birthday a day late you grumpy old cosie! Grin

Morning all.

cloudy here, 38 degrees.  Supposed to get to 45, with more rain.

Was supposed to have a search and rescue training today, but I never got a phone call telling me where it was supposed to be.  Huh  Hard to train when you don't know where you're training.  And apparently, the only guy in the group whose phone number I have...changed it.  Was it something I said?

Night pot on the coals.

Had a trip to the city today for church.  It was cloudy both places.  Undecided

I just got home from the annual Christmas concert, though this time I was in the audience instead of the stage.  It's definitely a different experience.

2" of white stuff forecast for tonight, though they say it'll be gone by noon.  Saves me the shoveling. Roll Eyes
