Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. Harvey S. Firestone

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in persons with whom you are going to spend most of your waking hours.

Some people get spiritual because they see the light and some people get spiritual because they feel the heat!

How do you know if you're truly a servant? See how you react the next time someone treats you like one.

From The Corner Of My Mind

* Light rain fell on the windshield on the way over to Krum this morning. Temperature holding in the mid 50s.
* The weather this weekend was spectacular. For February.
* I worked Saturday. Just as I arrived home and stretched out, the phone rang and it was Mr. Answers. He and his lovely wife invited us out to dinner. We gladly accepted, and enjoyed a very nice meal and even better conversation.
* We did a lot of gossiping, therefore we had to meet again Sunday morning in Bible class to ask for forgiveness. Or not.
* I had offered a guy a trade on FB for one of my guns last week. He had a gun that is just like one that I used to have. I probably sold the one I had back then because I needed the money. So I wanted another to add to my collection, he accepted and we met over at the intersection of US 281 and I 20. He was in school at Abilene and we met nearly half way. We made the deal and were both happy.
* I had very little in the gun I traded off, so I hope I got the better deal. Either way, I got what I wanted and so did he.
* I am getting my CHL soon.
* I have an appointment later today for part of it.
* That Super Bowl was crazy. The blackout and the near come back were just weird.
* The commercials were not as good as I expected. I had already watched most of them online. My favorite: The Budweiser Clydesdale. next, the Doritos baby goat. Although W-spouse didn't get it.
* We stopped at Brookshires in Bridgeport on the way through yesterday and picked up a 6 pack of Shiner Bock Heferveisen(sp)? It was good, especially with a squeeze of orange.
* While at Brookshires, we ran into W-baby mom, Deven and Madison.
* We also pre ordered a pizza for 7pm. It arrived at 7:30pm and wasn't all that good.
* I wonder how many pizza's were prepared yesterday across the US after 5pm?
* Today has already started out as a cluster.
* I turned word verification on again. Since doing so, I have NOT received ONE spam email. I'm sorry folks, but it is staying on for a while. It has been nice to check my email and not have to wade through 200-300 spam emails. Because of word verification, you may need to start/sign into a google account to be able to post. It's free and simple to join. If it doesn't work, just send the comment to my email and I will post it.
* A friend of mine turned 50 last week. I thought he was older than that. It surprised me.
* I always spell received and surprised wrong the first time I type it.
* Update on Cuz: He's had a couple of setbacks that is keeping him from returning to TIRR right now. He has a sore/wound on his backside that they are working on to get healed. They performed a surgery on it last week and are removing dead skin from it every few days. It has a wound VAC on it which should help to speed the healing. The sore IS NOT down in to the bone now. That is a good thing. I had been researching the last month for a device that would allow him to use his phone totally hands free. I found one and shared that information with Sharon. Since then they ordered him one and it arrived Friday. He is now able to text and call totally hands free. He is having a great time with that. It also allows him some sense of freedom without having to depend on someone to hold the phone up to his ear for him. If you want his number to contact him, just shoot me an email or comment, and a way to get back with you privately.
* Have a great day, see ya Around The Corner!

I didn't think the commercials were as good as in the past either. I was definitely disappointed.
What a great idea for Cuz, hands free phone....that will give him a lot of thinking on your part!

I LOVED the Paul Harvey Dodge commercial. Man....

Completely missed the Budweiser & Doritos commercials. Oh, well.

Cool bit about the phone. That's awesome for your cousin. And good news re: the sore...those can be scary dreadful.

My body is not built for concealing anything around the waist; also very uncomfortable.
So much for my CHL. However, I am really safe at home.
