I would like to wish all my followers a Happy Thanksgiving Day! As we in the United States, take time to be with our families and share our thankfulness for the blessings we have.
I am going to try to start blogging regularly again. I have decided the blogging will help me in the process of things I am working on.

This was a hard week for me. I had jury duty and had several things going on at work and I managed to brush my dog today.
I was summons appear at the courthouse Tuesday for jury duty. I see why people complain about having to go to jury duty because it takes up your whole day even if you are not selected to serve on a jury and you have to sit through lawyers asking people the same questions over and over again. I was not selected for the jury for the case they had scheduled for the day. I was not even called to the jury box to be seated on the jury. Even if I was I am sure I would have been dismissed from the jury because I know the district attorney and the judge presiding over the case was my mother's lawyer when she divorced my dad. The trial was attempted murder case. Some guy nearly beat his wife to death. At the end of the trial he was found guilty and sentenced to 17 years in prison.
I had one of my coworkers complain to my lead because I was not doing the same type of orders that he was this week. I hate when people who goof off try to get people like me who work hard to get our job done in trouble. I do not complain to management about somebody's else work unless it may cause someone to get hurt. I am too busy doing my job to worry what someone else is doing. My lead may not like my reaction the next time he comes to me and tells me some goofball complained about how I am doing my job. I do my job the way I was trained to do it. I do not need someone who is afraid of doing more work then he has to do. I will make sure I grab as many of the kinds of orders as I can when I see then put out to be picked now even if I know I while not be able to finish them. I guess I am pissed off about it because the orders I was working on makes the warehouse more money then the orders I was told I must work on because some lazy idiot complained.
I picked out my benefits for next year. I basically got the same thing I have this year. It will cost me $5 more a week for it. I hope I get a raise to cover the extra money. I believe the few things that have change is worth the raise in price. I should hear about the pay raise by the end of the year although last year they were late with the raise.
I manage to comb Rayna today. I was surprised she stay still long enough for me to comb most of her fur. I got a lot of hair off of her. I will try sometime this weekend to give her a bath which is always I pain. Rayna is the only dog I know that does not like water.

This afternoon as I was doing some yard work I saw a Black Woolly Worm. As the old folk tale goes a all black woolly worm means a hard or cold winter is ahead. I guess we will see if it is true.

I see a lot of people text while they are driving and it scares me. I admit I have sent a quick text at a stop light but the phone goes down when the car is motion. You see some one all over the road and when you get next to them, they are on their phone texting away. I found this song this video by Rhett and Lin.k I enjoy their and and this one makes a point. Please do not text and drive.

Joshua P. Warren is a paranormal investigator who lives in Asheville, North Carolina which is just to the north of where I live. Joshua was appeared on Coast to Coast Am and Ghost Adventures and many other national shows. He hosted his own show called Speaking of Strange.
One of his latest investigations is a photo inside the White House that many people believes show the ghost of Abraham Lincoln. The photo was taking by the framed U.S. National Park Service photographer, Abbie Rowe.

I remember listing to this song a lot when I was young. I still enjoy it. The 1980s had some interesting bands.
The idea for Songs And Sounds On Saturday came from Valerie. Please take time to visit her blog, A Mixed Bag

Sorry guys it has been over a month since my last post. I have been focusing on a projects and working on listing more books in my online store.
I have been working on getting things cleared up so I can travel to the Philippines next year. If everything goes go I should have that taking care of by the end of the year.
I done several projects around the house. I now have two working showers in the house. I built a fire pit by my patio. I have a lot of yard work to do. I am going to cut some of the bushes around the yard down to the ground and let them grow back since they have a lot of dead spots. I am waiting for my sister to return my lawnmower which broke-down when she borrowed it to cut her lawn. She was been waiting for her boyfriend to get the part he needs to fix it. I am glad it has been dry this summer so the grass have not grown a whole lot but it does need mowing now and the leaves are starting to fall.
We had been making preparations to switch to a new computer system at work. They were going to do it in October but this week they decided to push it back to February. When they get things switched to the new computer system, they are planning for us to have a lot of overtime.
Most of my free time has been working on getting more books listed on my online store. My sales have gone up. I hope going into the holiday season that my sales will increase more. I have been wanting to try to sale some clothes but have not broke-down and bought some at the thrift store yet. I have also been checking the clearance sections a the stores but not seen anything at a price I feel I could make a little money from. Sometimes you get lucky.
I will try to post somethings on the blog but it is not going to be on the top of my list. I miss posting on the blog and will be back to regularly posting sometime after the new year.

Today, mom had off from work, so we went out looking to see want cars are out there in the price range and meets the needs of my mom. Mom has been without a car for about two years now since she had a wreak with her last car. She has been talking more and more about getting another car. Mom wants to get a mini van or SUV so she will have enough seats for the grand-kids. It gets crowned in my car when we take my sister and her three kids out on day trips.
The unfortunate thing is that mom does not have the money right now in order to get a car. I will try to help her buy a car but in will be a couple month before we are in a position to buy the vehicle she needs. Today's outing was to see want we could get for the price range we can afford. There was not very many options on the two car lots we had time to look at today but it looks like we will be able to get something the will be in rather good shape.
I find car salesmen annoying because they will not let you just look around the lot and decide on your own what you want. We are going to try to look at some more cars on Sunday when some of the dealerships are closed and we can look without being bothered. I do not like being rushed into a purchase and car salesman seem to give me the feeling.
I hope we will be able to save up enough money to get mom a car by the end of the year. Money seems to be really tight right now but we will have a couple bills paid off here soon. The unfortunate thing is I am going to be hiring another lawyer to take care of a couple things. I have a lawyer friend at church that said he will help me find the right lawyer to help with the issues I need help with. I hope it does not cost much but it will be worth it.
