Edit: They also just gave me a 12% pay raise.
Bolded and underlined is good advice.

Life is too short to work at a job you hate for a company and boss you hate. Nobody - ever - on their deathbed has uttered the words "I should have worked longer."

Burgess fogger helps

Need to spray weeds and plant two more mato plants but just don’t feel like doing it now. Need more coffee

Took son, daughter and GK2 out for dinner as sons birthday yesterday. A new steak joint called Perry’s opened up in town. Same franchise as the ones I ate in while traveling in Texas. Best Pork Chop ever being seven fingers thick

Martinis were perfect along with the Stag Leaps wine

Time to soak my head in a pillow

Oh no, I am quite serious. We have everything from baby bunnies, snakes, frogs, lizards and a mouse.


I would much rather save them than find a rotten carcass in my skim basket. That is just gross.

Since we started using these, no dead critter juice in my pool, plus I like my toads and baby bunnies.
