ANOTHER FUN WEEKEND ~ ~ ~
Tipp City rug progress ~ wish I would get it finished!! I took this photo with the cell phone in a lot of bright light ~ yikes!! But it's coming along!
Then we took the kids and their parents to African Safari ~ one of my favorite places to go up there! You drive your car thru and feed the animals!! This buffalo liked Chris a lot ~ but he needed a tic tac or two ~ whew! Some of those guys had really odoriferous mouths!! We laughed so hard ~ it's just crazy when these animals stick their whole heads in your car and snarf around for food! We took four bags of carrots and they give you a cup of pellets which don't last long and usually the animals yank it out of your hand!! Chris is a very meticulous fellow and he about had the big one when they slobbered on his car ~ that was almost as funny as the wildlife! We went directly to the car wash when we left! That night, we went to the Japanese restaurant, Nagoya, for dinner ~ always fun with the kids!!
Our partners in crime ~ Carol and John and Karen (our Halloween hosts)!
Diane and Greg and Bill ~ Carol's husband!! We had a riot that day! Went to the annual Chili Cookoff at the Brew Pub and met up with our friends, Tom and Janet, who live on the island part time! Always lots of laughs ~ we love our friends!!!
It's been quite a couple of weeks ~ lots going on! Yesterday, I bought a new phone system and got that into operation ~ I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to these new fandangled pieces of equipment!! I also bought a new printer because the current one has a broken hinge (how, we don't know but it wouldn't print unless I laid on the top of it and now it won't even do that!) Tonight's project is for me to try to get the new one up and running! Wish me luck! I had to hand write paychecks today ~ that's not good ~ and then will have to print them to paper so the guys can have a copy!! And on it goes ~
I did it!! I have the fax set up and the printer connected to the Ethernet so it's wireless!! Woo hoo!! I have to say ~ the tutorial was so good that probably my cat could have done it!! But, there is no less sense of accomplishment!!!
Anyone watching Dancing with the Stars? It's getting a little dicey with tempers flaring a bit! Okay ~ I'm outta here for now!! See you soon!
