kind of depends on what i'm doing and where.  usually we get every 9th day off, but not always.  don't even know if i'll have access to a computer  :-(.

anyway....it should be no more than 3 weeks, maybe less.  just depends on what they need.

Probably, we got hammered.
My neighbor go hit really bad, his whole basement was a pool.

I also received a mail yesterday that the Sarnoff Library went under (their storage facility), they were asking for volunteers to come clean it out.

I do some minor volunteer work up at the Red Cross, once or twice a year, they're a great bunch of people.

Use lots of soap and maybe a brillo pad, trying to scrub New Jersey off you may be difficult.

Welcome Back.

THINGS I LIKED ABOUT NJ

we met really nice people.
there are lots of police.
they make the dividers on off ramps wide so that you can park and read the map.
they make the center divider low so that you can drive over it and get off the express freeway when you are (OMG we are headed for the) Holland Tunnel and you don't want to be.
While i was lost in Newark, lots of people were smiling at me.

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT NJ

none of the roads went where i wanted to go.
none of the maps were correct.
LOTS of road construction.
no road signs.
lots of police!
while i was lost in Newark, lots of people were smiling at me.
 
over all, not a bad trip.  got lots of work done.  hubby was even good about taking care of the bees.  he likes the bee jacket i got him and had no problem getting into the hives.  unfortunately, he was not sure what he was looking at when he was in there, but that's ok.

understudy, you will be pleased to know that i roomed with a far left social worker and we actually got along.  at least we didn't come to blows   :-D

Kathyp,

A far left roomie and no blows?  You showed admirable restraint.

I am glad to hear you survived in NJ. It's like Kansas only intensified.

I am glad you did not come to blows with the leftist social worker. But I am willing to bet she is the one who told everyone in Newark to smile at you while you were lost.

Sincerely,
Brendhan
