You need to catch up on your sleep after that long trip and now training again. Hope you get another chance to go to SF. Actually what is fun is to take one of the open air bus tours that start at the wharf and go ip to Golden Gate Park and the old Presidio and some other parts of SF. Great way to see some of the city in a limited time. We did that with our niece one time. Oh dear, sorry you experienced an erthquae - pretty common in that area. In WA we used to get smaller ones several times a year. Didn;t mind those much as I figured that was relieving some pressure. At least theyn ike a variety of music. I would have a hard time traeling with people who only like country as that is my leas favorite genre. Bryan said he really doesn;t want to go so Florence. He'll wait for something else if we are going out of town. But nothing much I hae seen so far for either OR or WA has thrilled me much. Did a lot of puttering around the house yesterday and stuff like plcing an amaon order. Bryan went fishing - but no fish so it was a good thing I had defrosed some kielbasa for dinner LOL Hope your day is ging well today and catch you tonight.

I do hope you get to have some fun in Alabama too!! I can relate to the to hot and humid thing!! It's like that over here most summers. It's always humid over here, being surrounded by water. I don't get why they don't do anything against the foolds you have, when people are drowning!! I don't watch shows either when I'm tired. I'm always afraid I'd miss someting imporant when I fall asleep during an epp. OMG!!! 18?!!! Thats a hugh bunch!! Lets hope they all come back, and do great!! Maybe then you'll get to do some other work then training!! But you've been hoping for that for a while now, I think. I did go to the streetfair. It was fun. Ran into a lot of people I haven't seen for a while. Bought a crocheted bag for just €7,00!! Dark blue outline with colored stripes. Mr. Sprik is doing ok for now. It would be a bit asier for me, if he could move sooner. His old house is kindda big for me to keep clean on my own!! He used to be able to do a lot of things himself, and I just needed to help him.But since he dislocated his hip, and had an operation, he's unable to do much of anything anymore. Did you watch anything? How did the new trainee's do? Have a great Wednesday!!! *hugz*

Hey, we're on at the same time for a change :) Usually Sf is not real hot in the summer being on the bay bt this has been a hot one up and down the coast. Glad to hear the traveling willbe over with for awhile It can get tiring living out of a suitcase for weeks. Southern cooking is good, usually hefty portions, filling and fattening :) You have to find some good Southern fried chicken! Ask the the hotel where you are staying. A lot of running around errands today. What kids of music did the coworkers you traveled with like? Been checking out concerts in OR for the rest of the year Florence and the Machine are coming to Portland Oct 2. I'll have to see if Bryan wants to go. No much else that interests me. ANyone good coing to your area?

Oh yeah, the SF waterfront is always a zoo but still fun to experience at least once and you can't beat the fresh seafood. I bet you are glad to have some home time. But not fun that you have so much training to do again :( Why such a big turnover in employees? If you have never been in the deep southm be prepared for a lot of humidity. Not my favoite part of the country as far as weather. Is that the last trip for a long while I hope? Busy this weekend as we had a big party Sat night and Sun was gdau's 15th birthday and we spent that at the lake and the Lodge let us have the restaurant after it closed Sun at 5 pm for a pizza party for her, her girlfriends and family. They let her and her friends spend the night in one of the vacant cabins. We will leave for Rebelution on Mon, renting a house for 3 days, and then coming home Thus. The house has a pool which is great as the Ashland, OR area gets very hot this time of year. Kids wil kove that and so will we. The venue, the Brit, is a wonderul outdoor amphitheater within walking distance of the rental. Kitties are all good. So glad we have central AC to keep them cool. I the morning I open the windows to let cool air in and they love tha, each one sitting ion a window ledge to sniff the great outdoors. They relay get excited when the deer come by. I have no clue what thy thik they are LOL

Alabama! Maybe it'll be just fine! It's just for one week! We do have foodings of roads, gardens and stuffs like that. And it can be bad. But it's not like people drown over here, or stuff gets dragged along! It's not that bad! I wish you were caught up on FS!! There have been a good few epps, but the last one was... I don't know... dissapointing in a way. Can't tell without giving stuff away! And I don't want to spoil things for you! I did see FtWD! I liked it! I hope this bunch of trainee's will do very well!! Hope you don't have to much work to catch up on? You think there will be many more trainee's for you in the next few weeks? Today I've been cleaning the bathroom in mr. Spriks new appartment. It's a beautiful place!! It will be a bit longer before he move's in. They are renovating the building, and he's going to wait till thats done, before he move's in. Could take a few months. But I think he's right to wait. It's causing a lot of noise and mess. Tomorrow there's a streetfair over here :-D Hope the weather will be good. I'd like to go! How was your day? Weather ok? Have a great Tuesday!! *hugz*

The noise, and specialy the running around does kindda annoy me too. I'm not used to having kids around. This was like an invasion of kids ;-D So back to your usual day's at work routine? Hope these trainee's are a good, fast learning bunch!! Luckely it's just one week in San Fransisco! No floodings here due to the rain. We always have to mind 'water', with the ocean right next to us, and lots of rivers. I guess we're better prepaired then other countries. There has been a treible flood in 1953!! I think a third of the country got flooded back then. Ever sinds we've been working on better prtection agains those sort of things. Last few epps of FS were really good! The other shows too!! And I do plan on watchin FtWD. Not sure what I'm going to watch next. I do keep up with the one's I'm watching now. I had to get some spare key's made, so my new neighbor can have one too. Handy in case you lock yourself out sometime ;-D I had to go back twice, because it didn't fit!! :-P Hope you're having a great Monday!!! *hugz*

Welcome home!! Did you a good time? Did the training go well? Hope you don't have to claen up a lot of mess on the job tomorrow, like last time!! We had a kids birthday party yesterday. It was fun, but very noisy with a lot of kids running around ;-) So you have another trip to look 'forward' to?! I'm all caught up on the shows I'm watching right now. Still a lot I have to catch up on tho ;-D A week ago we had constant rain. It was a record!! It rained for 60 hours straight!! Weather has been great this last week. Nice warm and sunny. But it's going to rain again tonight. They predict rain for two days, and then it should get better again. Got everything un packed? Did you bring anything back for your trip? Have a fantastic Sundog!!! *lots ob hugz*

At last made it here to hat. Got even further behind last couple of days cuz I spent them in Back_Friday mostly. I have to answer msgs from the top down; if I skip around I might miss one and I hate being rude and not answering. Is this the last week for being on the road? Did you get into SF over the weekend? . I ED you get 3 weeks at home before going to Alabama. Oh boy, that is a very hot and humid area but hopefully in Sep it will hae cooled down. I hope you have some vacation days planned - you have been working so hard. Sounds like you've been having some pretty good eats. Hopefully the company pays for the meals. Sorry to hear botu the heat rash and hope i cleared up. Are you prone to them at home too since you liive in such hot country anyway. Uh oh, did the bad stuff back at the office get cleared up? The camping trip with Bryans buds was really nice - they all made me feel s welcome. Only et a few of them at their last reunion. We will go again next year. The next trp with son and gkids trip great also. Got my fill of reggae music straight for 4 days at the festival. Hot and dusty as usual but the Eel river still had some water, just the swimming holes were smaller than last year. But enough for us all to cool down. The gkids loved it. Then the next 5 days were at the OR coast - always love the beach - and then over to Eugene for another regae concert - Sick Figure, Slightly Stupid and Dirty Heads. All great groups. I think you would really like Sick Figure. Then finally home. Have a 4 dayers planned end of Ayg into sep down to Jacksonville Or to a lovely outdoor amhitherater for yep, another reggae concert with Rebelution and I forget who else.
