Saturday afternoon thoughts.

Lazy day in Valdese land.  This post is just some things I'm thinking about.

When I was in the Army, one of my duty assignments was at Augsburg Germany.  Recently a person who was stationed there at the same time I was started a Facebook page for the particular unit I was stationed with.  Suddenly all these people I knew intimately, worked with closely, some of whom were very good friends, are popping up and saying hello.  In one way it's very nice.  But my problem is I don't like Facebook that much.  I check in every now and then, and that's all I do with it.  But I need to respond to them, they were my friends.

Its a warm day here, but not terrible.  As I write this it is 82 degrees Fahrenheit, which is 28 degrees Celsius.  82=28, easy to remember.  And it's not quite as humid as it has been, so it's much more comfortable.

Our eBay sales have set a monthly record for 2010, for us anyway.  I'd still like to double it, but I'm actually a bit surprised and pleased about it.  I believe I've written before, the money we generate is significant enough that we'd miss it if we didn't have it.

I find that I like Twitter.  Short, concise, out of context - it's a good fit.  Also, and this is a Kodak moment, I finally understand how it can be used & how people use it.  I don't use it to it's full potential, but now I realize how it can be done.

I'm just coming to terms with the fact that the little red Mustang we bought is much, much smaller, and much, much, more agile than our big ol' truck.

Until recently, I had forgotten how big Labrador Retrievers are.  I had a Black Lab for 14 years, but he died several years ago now.  Now I've gotten used to Pickles the Dog, and I'd forgotten just how big Labs can be. 

I need to get a book to read.

This is my 9th post in the month of August.  I think I've had 9 posts each in the 4 previous months.  I don't know what that means, and I'm not sure I want to keep that pattern going.

I think I'll take part in Wordless Wednesday.  But I can't talk about it on Wednesday, because that would involve using words.  So there'll be no words on wordless Wednesday, unless the picture itself has words in it.   Don't expect a Musical Monday from me anytime soon.  And of course I'm doing Thursday Thoughts on Saturday, so you can see where this is going.

Speaking of which, I need to listen to more music.  Or any music.

That's all for now.  If I think of anything else, I'll add it to the list.

Just a general LOL I reckon. When I get around to it, that is.

Boy, your mind went in all different directions!

I'm so used to my chihuahuas, that when the neighbors big bit bull comes over, it just blows me away or knocks me over(literally).
