    hi ALL

    Linda. yes its nice to have something just to read. I am usually dissapointed if i come to this site

    and there are no new posts.

    And i know i can talk about sheer nonsense if i want. lol

    June 13

    Nice out today. Go to work in a couple hours.

    Feeling ok today, Recharged the batteries for my camera. Dried some towels in the drier.

    Found out i need to fix the door in the bathroom, its getting hard to close.

    Got paid yesterday, not sure if i will purchase anything. I am bored with everything at Kmart.

    I am looking for a cool looking spoon and fork for work.. Something with a fish design on it.

    Looked on ebay and a few other placed, nothing i like yet.

    Feel like taking a nap before work this afternoon.

    looks like im on day 10..

    my laptop charger took a dump..

    found a older one that adds hum to my music..so i ordered another replacement.

    i feel foolish that i didnt have a better backup.

    feel even more foolish thinking the 20 dollars i am spending for a replacment ,

    would only last about 30 minutes in the pokies.. or sometimes 5 minutes lol

    june 17

    went to bunnings warehouse. bought and planted some kangaroo paw plants.

    also a potted color plant thingy.

    A outside door mat , and a plane to sand or cut down a door top what was hanging up.

    it worked the door opens easy now. my feet are hurting today and they feel hot, no joke.

    not sure whats up with that.

    a also worked on my frog pond some more today.

    didn't stop at maccas,, was tempted though.

    i moved a old computor into the area where i had been using my laptop, until i get a charging cord for it.

    listening to music.

    its cloudy out now, i feel like a nap.

    i worked the last four days.

    Hey Doug,

    Good to hear you're still going strong. Though maybe a bit bored? Maybe could you find something different to do one of the next few days?

    Do you like Wes Montgomery? Hey, you should learn an instrument! (if you don't already play one that is!)
