You've probably heard this one, but....

A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a
pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant
to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking. After becoming
very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers,
the blonde shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator
so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"
The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you'll luck out
and catch yourself a big one!" Determined, the blonde turned and headed
for the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator. Later in the day,
the shopkeeper was driving home, when he spotted the young woman
standing waist deep in the water, shotgun in hand. Just then, he saw a
huge 9-foot alligator swimming quickly toward her. She took aim, killed
the creature, and with a great deal of effort hauled it on to the swamp
bank. Lying nearby were several more of the dead creatures. The
shopkeeper watched in amazement. Just then the blonde flipped the
alligator on its back, and frustrated, shouts out, "Damn it, this one
isn't wearing any shoes either!"

LOL! Sorry, but it's the best I can do on short notice. Work was interrupted for a bit and so I'm just killing time... No, we don't advocate killing alligators and don't own a pair of gator shoes (but I have been considering getting some Gators, is that what they're called?) Yeah, this is me, Shawn, the fashionista!

Enjoy what's left of your week!

Time flies....

Whew! I guess it's been a little while since I stopped by. Time to catch up! We've both been working very hard...(well, he's been working a lot harder than I have).

There's brand new office furniture waiting to get set up. That's going to be great, when we're all situated with nearly side-by-side armoires (planning a bookcase in between, easy access). I can hardly wait to have everything in place and organized. I can picture it in my mind and see that it's pretty doable, so we'll see how it actually turns out.

There was some pretty wild weather during the last week or so. Hope everybody is AOK in Tornado Alley and thereabouts. Our sweet Texas friend "apple" was worried about us and checked in, so very thoughtful, but all was well. I'm thinking March and April got their wires crossed up a bit, maybe, but today it was a lovely April day, and we took a "bloom walk" in the neighborhood.

Other than that, it's been a matter of keeping our noses to the grindstone, we've have had a bit of recreation (including seeing SGTex's son in a fabulous college production- WOW!) and best of all, in spite of everything, we're just madly in love as ever...

So, keep checking in. We're really glad to have you stop by!
