Grey is nice, but not in the hair you're thinking? I'm lucky to have blond-ish hair it's tough to see grey in-. yay! Plus now the sun is bleaching out the brassy tone too. I won't ever use hair coloring because of my allergies to the chemicals.

My spiny Aloe plant is flowering! I didn't ever see a Aloe blossom before. They are about .75 of an inch long with one open at a time. I guess using the plant light on occasion made it happen.

At least I got to do these pics this week. Trying not to write another exhausted from work post so guess I'm going short on words lately...

Shake-up or Shake-down?

Image by SnaggleTooth June 2016

My 6 days in a row are over TG n I can almost relax for a few hours. Having a strange week at work, n now we're all on guard with the Big Boss there all night trying to train folks better. Hope the inspection on my Day Off this week goes well.

 He's been on a bit of a rampage lately, n heads have rolled for folks who won't do as he says. He got so mad at the Prod. manager I've worked for since I got the job, now we need a new one. The couple of that one's underlings are trying to do that job, but the one who is out now had it better n faster than anyone.

Meanwhile we all have to be good n save Big Boss more money, but we're all burnt out.
The atmosphere there is bordering on what it must feel like to be in a prison camp. That's what I've been calling it under my breath to folks there as a joke. Plus remarking I should've committed some crime to deserve such treatment. Everyone has been taking numbers n getting in line for wanting to find a new job elsewhere ASAP.

Not so easy to hurry up n get work lately tho. Hope I can stick it out awhile until things smooth over. Hopefully it gets easier instead of worse. Summer has just started n I am so tired from that first few weeks already.

This week at least it's cooling down here n getting windy for my walk. I'm watching "After Earth" with Jaden n Will Smith, n "Escape" with Stallone n Schwarzenegger this week for some Sci-Fi fun. I found the third "Pirates of the Caribbean" for last week n still have the wonderful music of Hans Zimmer still running thru my brain. Especially the sword-fight tune is my fave.

Kinda feels like I've been dancing around some sharp blades lately too... 


Tough to imagine how I got all these images out of a cute kitten pic from the Day he opened his eyes. He's bigger n climbing everything now. My cam batts (re-chargeable) have been going dead quickly alot lately. Many missed shots, but will keep trying to get more of him.

Hope you're having more fun than me...

Shucks

Image by SnaggleTooth 2016

This week I won't get to be online at my usual time, so I left early for work to get a post up this week.
Image by SnaggleTooth 2016

I'll be running myself ragged at work with a six-day work - schedule, one beginning in the am when normally I sleep.  It will be all I can do to get groceries n laundry done in one day.

This week had another person, my ex-BIL , departed from the living. Due to his religion, burial took place already n there is no way to  do anything or go anywhere. It's tough to just keep working when you are sad about the way things are. I'm too good at not reacting when I probably should.

I've noticed that just because folks get divorced doesn't mean once you've let some one into your heart doesn't mean you can lock them out n not care when life throws them a curve ball.

They are still parents of my nieces n nephews who I knew for years at gatherings they can no longer attend. I still consider them family, but don't get to visit with them. I still have an ex SIL who remarried, n I haven't seen her in awhile, but do miss her. I found a hand-written note in a card she sent ages ago, n tho it says nothing much, it does say she cares between the lines. That I must hang onto as I attempt to let go of them again.

Someone's been shucking quahogs, muscles, n oysters. I don't eat seafood, have had a few bad reactions. I'm sure the folks who like it are bummed out  shell-fishing is closed on most swimming beaches with the summer season.

Hope to find more blog time next week. Have a good one!

Bbbbaaaaa Booom

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2016


We're approaching that over-worked week-end again to begin the Summer business Boom. Summer heat made an early appearance here Wednesday, n I didn't even need a hoodie doing errands for first time this year.

I'd like to say the extra days off to begin my week had me more rested, but I never did get much sleep.

A co-worker I've known for about a decade died in a horrible traffic accident, leaving small children n a wife. I also work with his brother, so I skipped that day of sleep to attend the funeral.

Then Pipes at the house broke, so
Got woken all day with pipe fixing right out my window n in basement under the bed only 3 feet away!

 Got super grumpy. Still am, tho folks at work don't understand making sarcastic jokes doesn't mean I'm happy, but trying to deal with all this crap. Like in the show "*M*A*S*H*." I feel like Hawk-eye, like seems like I'm doing too much that I don't want that doesn't matter.

 Got alot dug out n planted in the back garden. Already having fun with a multitude of insects eating it all, like slugs n ants, plus caterpillars. The Gnats n Mosquitoes are out in force already too.

I put chicken wire or hardware wire over all the plants. Suspect a bunny may have eaten my first $4 zucchini plantling, n the bugs are still taking pieces after using "7" dusting powder. "Midnight Madness" Petunias out front again, n new impatiens are still alive. Sprung for a little "Chocolate Mint" plant today. It just smells so good, like a Girl Scout Cookie!

For Mother's day I got some "Smart Pots" which are different, feel like fabric. Got some planted to see how it goes.
I also got a beautiful, custom made Mother's Charm bracelet with birthstones on it.


Past week at the Library got first 2 "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, last seen ages ago on VHS at the old house. Now need to find the 3rd dvd I know is in my room somewhere, because I prefer seeing the entire series of everything.

Time for everyone to gear up for Memorial Day Week-end. I know I have a good flag pic on my cam somewhere. Found it in a March file...

Remember n honor all the fallen heroes of the Wars that gave us our country n freedom.


As is Said in a toast led by King Theoden of Rohan in the "LOR The Two Towers" film, (n often rattling thru my mind);
