Chatter


Got a little voice over gig for the high school kids here. Well for the CD that the teachers use for listening exercises. It took all of half an hour to go through it as I nailed almost every line the first time. They love my voice too so it's all happy happy ego stroking. Two hundies for 30 minutes. I wish these gigs came along more often than once a year.

Went over this morning to check out lawyer's house next door. He does have a lot more cracking than at our place though they ALL looked minor to me. We agreed that we would decide once he got the common wall uncovered in the basement to see if there is major cracking in it. I'm hoping not, but if there is, it might be better to do it. He wasn't lawyery at all in person so that was nice.


Look at the manly man painting the deck. That color he chose is called pear. I don't see it. Soon after this, he took off his shirt. I was forbidden to photograph him then. The deck will probably have to be replaced in two or three years. Whoever installed it didn't use treated boards and a couple of them are dry rotting inside. Actually, it's probably more than a couple. Why is it called dry rot when it's caused by water?

Our hot air balloon ride is scheduled for Friday the 24th. We've had nothing but beautiful weather for the last week and they're calling for that to change starting Thursday. I keep hoping the Friday forecast will change and it does change, only each time the forecast gets worse for ballooning. Fingers crossed.


Who's that hot dog? This was just after running around in the doggie park today. He's so funny now. When he's had enough, he will come over and sit in front of me. "I'm ready for my cookie and to go home now please." That's the routine now ever since I got the idea of using bait to get him to come so I can put the leash on him. I was just showing him the leash and he'd run over for his cookie, but now that the weather is so beautiful, he finishes before I'm ready to go. So cute.

OK! Now we HAVE to hear your voice! Ever thought about broadcasting? You people with the great voices are hard to come by.

Question.....we have to do our deck as well. Is that a stain/paint that Serge is using? Looks good. Ours is not rotting but covered in stains and dark spots. Other than just sweeping it before application, I assume that's all you do?
Thanks.

Doggies are pretty good at training their masters. When do we get a video blog? Love the tongue hanging out. He is so beautiful.

Now those old pictures of Serge in his young, crazy, lean & trim days might be worth something!

Or is it that he's so pale he'd make the Pillsbury Doughboy seem darker than Samuel L. Jackson??

(Love ya anyway, Serge. You still tend to look younger with every photo, so maybe you're regaining your baby fat?)

Ours is treated wood and we're still finding it weathers poorly. We have to stain it. Of course, it has to stop blowing fluff and raining for that to happen. :)

Georgie! xo

Hummm... I wasn't pretty outside this morning. Something tells me the ballooning was postponed again. :(
