Default Totally Random Chat Thread

I thought it might be fun to have an ongoing chat thread for totally random off topic thoughts.

I spent the weekend exploring the city (San Antonio, Texas) for some urban photography shots and hanging out with my grandkids.

I manage the financial (and other) affairs for an old friend who got dementia from an aneurysm clipping (open brain surgery.) The latest is: she has a mouse infestation! And - her disability just isn't enough to throw $$ at the problem, I've gotta throw myself. Fun.

Uch - did some clean-up in prep for the professional coming this week. Nasty work. Loathe wearing masks. Droppings were everywhere! Mice are smart creatures - I'm afraid they'll learn to avoid traps once we snare a bunch of them, after all entry points are sealed.

I just got back from a work trip to Austin, TX. My job has radically changed this year and now I travel 1-2 weeks each month to speak at tech conferences. Hurray for frequent flier miles!

I love flying to Texas, they always have the best BBQ. In Chicago, the BBQ is really just broiled to make it fall off the bone, then slathered in a sweet sauce. I am really enjoying biting into smokey dry-rub ribs and having to work at it a bit. mmmm BBQ.....

Well, that did it. The "M'm BBQ" I mean. I'm riding over to Lem's BBQ on south side, ordering ribs until I can't walk...then riding to the hospital to get my stomach pumped. THANKS!

I like the idea Cricket and I really enjoy it when people post pictures from different places. The thing that would make it better is to have a description of where it is and what we are seeing. Being an international community there is an opportunity to visit places from all over.

I edited my post to include the city I was exploring over the weekend. (San Antonio, TX)

It has definitely been a Monday. No less than 3 times I have reached for the same empty coffee cup. I was 99% certain that I had re-filled it, but once again it is empty. Since I tend to be on the ADHD side, I figured I must have gotten distracted and simply hadn't done it. To make a long story even longer, I just walked into the kitchen, very deliberately to get coffee this time - to FINALLY actually fill my coffee cup and found that the pot was empty. It's official. I have lost my mind.

Spent most of the day at our local thrift shop where I volunteer. I do two jobs. 1) sort and price craft and sewing supplies and maintain orderliness of that section (which can be a full-time job in itself since people rummage around in the bins and often move things around. 2) work the checkout and run the cash register. A fun job and I love talking to the people who come through the line. I only work the checkout one 4-hr shift on Monday afternoons.

The best thing about working there is that, since I do crafts myself, I get first-dibs on anything I'm sorting through. I have bought way too much craft supplies.
