  PLEASE Do Not Recommend the check-in diary!

        Recs on the weather jar comment are still welcome.

The check-in is an open thread and general social hour. Come back when time allows through the day – the conversation continues.

It’s traditional but not obligatory to give us a weather check where you are and let us know what’s new, interesting, challenging or even routine in your life lately. Nothing is particularly obligatory here except:

Always remember the Moose Golden (Purple?) Rule:

Be kind to each other… or else.

What could be simpler than that, right??

    Currently 45&deg outside, with an expected high around 70. Possibility of rain later in the week… like we haven’t had enough.

    On the home front, Kidlet turns 18 tomorrow. Yikes!!!

    In the meantime, another musical flow chart, in an attempt to understand Devo…

    Whip It flow chart

  2. 49 degrees here on its way up to 63 and afternoon showers. We are expecting highs in the 70s the rest of the week. So “they” say; “we” shall see.

    Yikes, 18 years old, trs! I remember it like it was 42 years ago! Attaining legal age, graduating … heady times.

    Have a wonderful day, all y’alls. Too much on my platter to linger.

    grading papers, writing Tuesday’s Chile and shivering a bit – it’s 46 here…up to 69 later.

    Thinking about Malcolm X today on his birthday.  An historical figure still not well understood by most folks, but since he was a living breathing person in my life – lit a candle for him this morning.

    All I’ve done this morning is try to send email that’s stuck in my outbox in Outlook. I did that for two hours yesterday. The messages are, of course, about a very ugly project I’m working on for Teh Stupid Company.

    I can send myself a test email. The only addresses I can’t send to, this weekend and today anyway, are… ta da! the people at Teh Stupid Company. All the addresses are different, so it isn’t even one domain that’s the problem.

    It’s officially proven: Stupid isn’t limited. It spreads.

    Morning, Meese, I’ve missed you.  Thankfully, the baby shower is OVER, along with all the prep and shopping connected with it.

    Only a few attended but everyone seemed to have a good time. Daughter-in-law is still freaked out because Friday morning someone plowed into the back of her car while she was stuck on Route 7 in the rain, on the way to work. In afternoon rush hour someone plowed into the back of my son’s car when he was driving home from his job in Maryland. Luckily, both (I should say all) are unhurt. The baby will be born on May 30, so daughter-in-law is feeling especially anxious.

    On the good news front, Miss Pink Cheeks found the first ripe strawberry of the season in our backyard yesterday. She asked if she could eat it so of course I said yes.

    JanF, congrats on kidlet’s reaching 18! Hope she’ll have a happy day. Denise, hope you can stay warm up there. When we watched “The Butler” the character of Malcolm X appeared in it. We really liked that film. JG in MD, good luck reaching the company, and anotherdemocrat, have a good day!

    Kidlet is 18!!! Best wishes!

    It’s in the low 50s and may make it to the low 70s.

    Hope it’s a good day for all in Moosylvania.

    all this week (after an early spring reprise last week culminating in having fire up the wood stove Saturday low 80s feels just fine).  Kidlet 18?  How the heck did that happen? :)  Yeah, I know.  The same way my youngest grandson hits 2 next month and my eldest grandson hits 17 in November.  Time isn’t marching on any longer, it’s now doing “track and field”.  I suppose it will move from marathon pacing to actual sprints in another decade.

    The NOM-er types got their “stay” Friday afternoon, dammit.  But we got a whole bunch of folks married last week.  The Appeal judges had best pay attention to both the merits of the case (solid constitutional reasons for overturning the ban) and the cost to the state of being sued by either the folks who can’t marry now that some have if they uphold the ban but let the marriages stand or by the folks who got married if they uphold the ban and invalidate the marriages.  Or both.  The TPs really don’t understand the word “right” – if they have it and others do not, it isn’t a right it’s a privilege.  I know they like it that way, but they could at least call it what it is.

    The landscape company is coming today so I’m both excited and nervous about all the pruning that will be done. I may have to “rest my leg” often so I don’t interfere though. Imma picky pruner!
