    Got one of these in red during the eighties. It was my prize possession and had lovely action and took metal tapes.

    "We all have are bad times such as break-ups, losing someone/something you love, friendship drama, team drama, family drama, etc. We lose ourselves and start to wonder 'how am I going to get through this?' A close friend of mine always told me that you should try to find something that makes you happy. I discovered that the one thing that always helps me when I'm feeling down is dancing. I turn on a song that matches my emotion and start making up a dance. It instantly makes me feel better and gets me through whatever is bothering me. It may not get rid of stress completely, but it's a start. That's just my way of dealing with stress, but everyone is different and I encourage others to find what makes them happy and feel better."

    Tomorrow morning will be spent in the garden, I have to plant the tomatoes, broccoli, two varieties of peppers, two varieties of green beans, bibb lettuce, and herbs now that the last frost is out of the way...The watermelons are doing well, I bought some cypress mulch for ground cover and help hold some moisture, I should have enough to cover around all the plants...I'll be getting up at 5 am to get an early start because warm sunny day, temps forecast to be around 85 degrees, great for the plants, best to get them planted early, less shock for them...

    I wonder what coach Ericsson’s reply will be if these boys happen to get the Corona virus?

    some times Death comes suddenly and it is not fair .Bob Joes was not only an AD at memorial He was an inspiration to the twins he was a friend to Rikki and I. He made a point of dropping by games. offering cheers to the victorys and words of encouragement in defeat.
    This was an man who the twins liked and respected. who always smiled.
    And never had a bad word.
    His. battle with cancer was brief.
    he was 56.

    The garden is planted now, it looks great, I'm using cypress mulch for ground cover around them...I was very tired by late afternoon yesterday too, fell asleep for a couple hours, my lower back and legs were so sore and not from the garden work but after that was done...I decided to run a ground cable I have been needing connected to my workshop for extra power and so I buried a 8/4 UF cable and 217 feet later after digging and burying that cable manually I was worn out then spent another 30 minutes connecting it on both ends...I'm glad I started at sunrise, it was a hot sunny day, got up to 85 degrees by 2pm, I was done with that work by 1pm...Today I may mow the grass but its likely I'm not going to do much at all, just take the day to relax and rest, and spend some time here today...

    Yesterday The twins made great grandma's cherry pie recipe.
    they followed the directions perfectly.
    The house filled with the familiar smell of baking cherry pie in my mind it really was great but I thought something was missing. Rikki felt it to. But we knew what it was..
    It was great grandma Burrus that was missing. it hit us how much we missed her.
    But all of our sadness was unable to take root as the kids were happly enjoying the pie.

    Next weekend is Memorial day weekend with Monday the 25th being the holiday, a couple of my engineers at work are wanting to take Friday off to have a longer weekend off work, so I'm going to cover for them Friday and then the following weekend I'm going to use two vacation days and take a long weekend...

    I was passing Ian's room when I heard him say
    "annyeong jal jinae?"
    I paused I saw him on a video conference with seo Yoon the gal he is friends/clumsy dating." comshipshida"
    she responded. "very good."
    they chatted back and forth as I realized she is teaching him Korean.
    Meanwhile samantha with the help of Rikki made a video of her in her blue daisy girl scout vest singing the daisy scout song saying buy our cookies please today! before digging into a plate of thin mints as over 100 boxes are not sold due to the pandemic..

    Yesterday during a 9 hour period at work I received over 70 texts and over 25 emails (not exaggerating) to my personal phone from the owner of the company, which today he made the comment he hasn't got many responses from 'all' (his emphasis not mine) of the text and emails he send out yesterday...I had no comment to that...:Whistle:

    So we had a talk today at work about these overwhelming amount of texts to my personal phone and since that talk not one text from him...By yesterday afternoon I had his texts going to spam, I could still read them if desired, but at least they were not dinging my phone all day long...I told him it was very unprofessional behaviour, a few times during the day he even walked right past me and instead of saying something in that moment, a minute later I would get hit with 8 texts instead...He had just started doing this for some reason, but hopefully its ended...lol

    Its Memorial day weekend here in the states, Monday being the holiday, a three day weekend begins...I have to go in to work early tomorrow morning to lock up the place, sometime around 6 am...After three days of rain the garden survived all the water, my plants are growing on mounds to keep them from being flooded out, the grass has grown fast though because of all this rain, got to mow tomorrow too...
