Leaving on slow train......

Hh and I are off on our Holiday adventure tonight, we should have departed at 8:00pm from Denver arriving in Lincoln by 4:30 am - but there is Engine Trouble with Amtrak in the sierra nevadas and snow too apparently since this train comes from LA through lots of mountains on its way to the plains.

So the latest estimate from the Amtrak customer service is 12:30 pm arriving at 9:30 approx in Lincoln. we will eat dinner and make calls to the local station master advise is to arrive at least an hour early and wait! well Kate and J we are coming just going to take us a little longer than expected. :) see you soon girlfriends.

Happy Birthday -

Happy Birthday - to my Blog and to My Dad!

I have been blogging for 5 years! can you believe it? March of 05 was the fist time I took to it, since then there have been lots of stories and fun and pictures. I have made lots of crafts, card and friends - changed jobs and had a good time.

I have won a few things, lost a few others and had joy, laughter, frustration and tears to share with readers.

My most desired posts are a strange rag tag of things.

I am continuing to write here- I love this forum. I hope you will come visit me here often with a smile.

And a special Happy 77 th birthday to My dad Alan F. Spector- he is my inspiration and my hero. I love this man.

“PRNDL” word up?

PRNDL a word? Well hh thinks so it was cute and funny, we went to do a little car shopping Tuesday night and when we got in the first vehicle hh says wow this one even come with a "prindle". So S and I look at each other and say what is that? She's pretty jazzed about it at this point and we don't have a clue what it is…. Well she points to the automatic shifter and says " you know a prindle"!! well needless to say we tell her that is not a common term, ask a few of your friends you text and ask your brother J? she says o.k and texts a couple of friends and J, he has no clue and his buddies don't either, her friends don't know. So I tell her text cha cha and see if they give you an answer, and yes they did and it was a term used to identify the gear shifter on an automatic transmission. And so it goes life with children is never dull.

way to go grace!

Grace needed to be my middle name, not Ann!~!! LOL !@#!~~
Today at lunch. i had a salad, yeah me! but.... as i put on the dressing, i put the lid back on and was going to give the whole thing a shake and well what do you know the lid was NOT really on very well.
Good thing I am in the office mostly by myself and the ladies room is not far. Good thing I have on a cami under my shirt. I ended up taking it OFF and washing it with soap and water, wringing it and heading back in the office ( Door closed) turned on a fan and set it on a chair in the sun, it is almost dry again and I think I maight be o.k. for my presentation this afternoon.
!@$~&^% crisis averted!!!

me me me

taken a week ago at the office in building 500 at the Anschutz medical campus of the University of Colorado

another shot out the door of the office, its a nice suite

yesterday night on the way home from AMC-office about 5:00pm MST in a "new bus" these particular busses are used on RTD routes that do NOT have to go downtown, the buses were orderd from a european maker but are to large apparently to fit in the garage under the market stree & 16th street mall, they are very nice busses but very tall! seats are a little narrower than some other buses in the regional fleet. so it is a comfy ride anyway
