when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

Still Point

There is no point in making lame excuses for not checking you all out lately. I will simply tell the truth. Two days before the BoBO incident (and follow up Vet visits and care), Tate accidentally ingested anti-freeze. No, he isn't suicidal nor stupid, the overflow fluid was put into a Gatorade bottle and he drank it by accident.(hours of testing at the hospital, thank God he is perfect) Avi has moved to NYC and is supposed to be going to school, but he doesn't have enough money to buy groceries and my Mom,. . . oh forget it. Then we had the death in the family, Dell, the twin brother to, well, Dell who had a nervous breakdown after contracting a darned virus. Dell the former, had a heart attack. I came into the office to do payroll and quarterly reports and he was laying cold on the desk. He must have been dead for hours. I contacted the emergency help line. They suggested I shock him with a different power source; I tried to no avail.
Last night a baby Gateway showed up in a box at our front doorstep. In between jobs and a final paper for Psych class,tech support and me will get back on track.
You do not wish you were here, and it is not too much fun. Catch you all later, I hope.

Yowza, Stacy, you've got your hands full! That reminds me, I need to label the bottom of bleach water in the laundry room cabinet that I put in the empty vinegar bottle before someone tries to make some toxic salad dressing.
