I'm in a little bit of a state of flux this week, so I'm not going to be writing a lot. In other words, it'll be mostly stream of consciousness nonsense -- yeah, yeah, more so than usual. I'll be out of town over the weekend, Thursday through Sunday, and I have way too much to do between now and then. Anyway, while I'm away, I'll be checking in. In fact, I'll probably be posting Thursday's Q&A from the car. Unless, of course, it won't go, in which case it won't be posted 'til we get there. You know I couldn't stand to be away from you guys entirely, though.
My boss was out all last week, so we have a hell of a lot of work to do today. I'll tell you what I told him: "I'll do what I can without killing myself, because you don't pay me enough for that, and I'll think about the rest of it tomorrow."
The weekend was great. It was actually cooler Saturday, making it very, very pleasant to be outside. Yesterday, alas, it heated back up to 95 or 96. My stepdaughter and her family were in town over the weekend and it was nice spending some time with them. She drove back over by herself Saturday night and, trying to pull into the driveway, hit the curb and popped her tire. Therefore, the evening was spent waiting on the tow truck sent by her Roadside Assistance plan and then waiting some more while the guy tried for over half an hour to get her spare tire loose. He finally got her tire changed and, by then, it was getting late and time for her to leave. We had some fun during the wait time, though.
I wish you all a Happy Monday and hope it's an easy one for you.

I have a little Monday joke for you.
A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night, and led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong and a mallet.
"What's that big brass gong?" one of the guests asked.
"It's not a gong. It's a talking clock," the drunk replied.
"A talking clock? Seriously?" asked his astonished friend.
"Yeah," replied the drunk.
"How's it work?" the other friend asked, squinting at it.
"Watch this," the drunk replied.
He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an ear-shattering pound, and stepped back.
The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, "You asshole ... it's 3:15 in the morning!!!"
