Woots & Hoos!

I'm still tired from last week.
We had to get a very labor intensive job out by this Monday past,so it was necessary to work Saturday in order to make it happen.
We managed that just fine,what with all and sundry multi-tasking their asses off.It was a pretty impressive team effort.
Still,a six day week makes for a one day weekend,and that mildly sucks.

The good news is!..I didn't realize till this morning that next Monday is Memorial day!
Yep,a three day weekend.
Lizzard King and I have decided to take a well deserved road trip back to Mount Lassen,our local volcano,and explore some of the wonders we missed last time around.
You all will get to tag along by way of video recap,no doubt.(aren't you just thrilled?..of course you are!)

**In other news**

The battle between the two candidates for this country's highest honor continues.
While voters may be split on whom they prefer,each candidate has more than enough qualities to recommend them.
I think the important thing,will be for each of us to get behind whomever is chosen,and make a show of solidarity.
It's down to the wire now folks,and the question of who the winner is will be answered TONIGHT!..On American Idol!

Can't wait for the travelogue. And yeah, I'll be happy when this whole thing is settled once and for all.

Who's running again? Is that David kid still in or did he run out of campaign funds?

mom- Lizzard King and I have both been hittin' it pretty hard at work.
These little day trips out of town are good for both of us.

Rainey- Oh,it's the David and David show!
Archuleta and Cook.
I really wanted Carly to win,but apparently this country is ready for a foreigner Idol.

yellerdawg- Damm girl,this code has been hangin' on for a while now huh.
David Cook won..I figured of the two,he would.

My faith in the American people was restored with last night's vote of talent over cuteness.

Billy P.- Silence is golden my friend!

citizen- I don't imagine you get too many un-interrupted holidays.
Enjoy the grillage!

jan- Dave Cook has the experience,and demeanor.
He was my pick of the two.
Dave Archuleta has plenty of time to develope into his talent.

Sage- I'll try to bring you some spectacular footage kid! :)

middle child- The air will be a little bit sulphurous where we're goin',but that's part of the experience.
Oh,btw,Courvoisier is a medium priced,and very respectable Brandy.
I like to enjoy it straight,in a heated snifter.
Why ruin a good Brandy by mixing it?

Am very thrilled to watch video highlights. I've never seen a volcano up close. You keep your toes outa that thing.

I was a David Cook fan all the way. The show has been redeemed as far as I'm concerned. (Like they care what I think!).

Crazy, but more people probably voted in this contest than they will in the Presidential election. Then again, this contest had more likeable candidates, eh?

booda babe- Oh,I wouldn't think of dipping my toes in those broiling waters,until I get Little Newt to try it first.

kari- I heard that a good protion of the viewership was lost,because it had become more about a personality contest,than actual talent.(and I think they most assuredly do care what you think).

As far as the vote count,you're allowed to vote multiple time on American Idol and,..wait..

Have a groovy time. Hope gas prices in your neck of the woods don't require a mortgage.

kimberly ann- Gas prices don't yet require a mortgage.
Not as long as I have the grandchildren's college fund to pillage.
