Friday wrap up...

Go here if you'd like to read the story behind this "apology cake".  
Funny & not funny all at the same time.

Another of Earth's creatures being hunted to extinction, for their meat and scales, 
used in Chinese medicine.

There isn't any lack of political news, but I refuse to add to the trash heap.  Unfortunately, I saw Johnson's most latest blunder, where he was unable to name a single world leader that he admired.  Good grief.

Romeo is set to begin teaching again, starting on Monday. He has been going back and forth from home to the school with the usual plethera of paperwork, insurance information, etc.  During one of those visits, he heard that the substitute that had been teaching the class he was hired for - upon hearing that the school had hired someone, left at lunch ~ and didn't return ~ a few of the kids went to the office and asked where their teacher was.  Isn't that rather like cutting off your nose to spite your face????  I believe that if they need a substitute teacher, they won't be calling him.

I am happy to be on vacation now until Oct 11th.  Actually, Sept. 30th wasn't on my request, but a few weeks ago I noticed the day was totally blank.  One Dr is in Italy on vacation, one Dr is in Scottsdale at a conference, and apparently the hygienists decided there wasn't enough going on to make it worthwhile to work.  I asked our office manager about it, and was told that if I wished to be paid for that day I would have to take a vacation day.  I did of course, as I never know from one week to the next if all of us here in the household will be working.....sorry for the dig, Romeo....so happily I am on vacation beginning today.  Wonderful, wonderful.  I don't have anything planned, but will do my best to find something fun to do, probably go hiking at Sandia Peak, taking my camera for photos.  


I still don't have a grade for my mid-term.  Today marks 4 weeks since they've had the test in their possession.  So, Monday I will be raising all kinds of hell.  This is ridiculous.  I really need to finish up this course, which means finishing one paper, and writing another.  So, it's not like I'm going to be sitting around twiddling my thumbs while on vacation.

Saturday is the start of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta!  So, along with everything else, our city is filled with visitors from all over the world.  And idiots who are attempting to drive and look at the balloons.  Not a good combination.  


Until next time....
Love, 365
