It looks grander with each grind of the sander, Bro! It must be quite a dust storm while you wok.
You two and Rain Maker are amazing.

Before I recompense for some error on my part, I must first compense. I will compense you for my egregious error. But once I have compensed you, why would I recompense?

I evaluated the cost of doing some mods to the rig. After thinking about it for a while, I had to reevaluate.

Found a better and more true to life usage of this one:

I evaluated a new wine this afternoon. After thinking about it for a while, I had to reevaluate it

Grand!
Would this be a parallel to commend and recommend? Doesn't make sense to first say the latter, eh?

Ahh! Much like counting and recounting. Nifty!
Any hanging chads?

Shara's Ode To Mutants is poetic art direct from her dear heart!
I'd love to a ton more of that

That's downright, outright nifty and Mutant!

In spect, there can be many PoWs yet to come (I hope) from more RVMs. I can't wait to review them in retrospect.

Sena reached a whole new level of brattiness today. It's a good thing I love her or I'd be planning her funeral now. Tell me if I'm wrong to want to strangle her.

Yesterday I was helping my DD and SIL paint the large wooden deck on the back of their house near where our RV is parked. We didn't quite finish before dark so I put a lid on the disposable container that held the paint I was using and left it outside next to the empty paint cans.

Today the moving truck came so I was inside helping. About 5:15 I stumbled out to head back to our coach for some much needed food and rest.

My heart sank when I noticed deck paint on the garage and shed roof. It was in long streaks of light gray on the dark gray roof.

You see the RV is parked close enough to the garage that I can step from the RV roof across to the garage roof. The shed is up next to the garage. Sena jumps out the bedroom window to the shed roof and plays outside. She won't run away, but she has been known to raid the neighbor's recycling bins.

I know it is my fault. I left the paint where she could get it and I let her play outside today. I paid dearly, though. Instead of getting to eat and lay down, I spent the next hour pressure washing the garage and shed roofs. Then when I climbed down there were blotches of gray paint that the pressure washer had splattered on the side of the RV. I can't win.

Barb, if we were at w%}k I would probably say something glib like, "at least you have job security." However, in your case I would have to go for a long walk, or have someone talk me down, while the culprit hid from me. I have similar feelings when Clyde attacks Bonnie for no reason. Feel your pain girl.

For at least the last 10 years, Sandy has 1) a major stroke that left the left side of her body useless, 2) a major heart attack, 3) a couple of "mini" strokes, 4) homebound or a patient in rehab facilities and more recently bedridden in nursing homes, 5) a couple of bouts with pneumonia per year (probably caused by asperating liquids into her lungs, 6) etc., etc.

I don't want her to die but life has offered little enjoyment for the last several years. Her only living son has immense health issues also and he has been the most dedicated caregiver known to man. He is exhausted, scared, and angry at the prospect of losing his mom.

I told her son, Ron, that it is best to support the decision made by his mother and to know that she is ready to give up the battle. That everyone has the right to determine their own destiny. He agreed with that a little bit. I think.

Pray for peace during this time of tormenting circumstances. Thanx in advance for your prayers, kind thoughts, and ohms from a fellow mutant.
Praying for peace.
