A Sad Day Indeed

SERVICE, Customer, 82, passed away on August 23, 2012 at 9:17am. She was preceded in death by her sisters Common Sense and Ability To Make Change. A strong member of the community, she finally lost her battle with apathy and ignorance. The family requests that all flowers and contributions be withheld, as there will be no one available to accept them in a timely manner.

Oh no, not bored. Upset, furious, tired, and dejected -- yes. Bored -- no. Just been a cavalcade of ignorance today. I don't know where and when the ability to do ones job came to pass, but ... sigh. So I had to post her passing for all to see. Shame, really. I kinda liked the old gal.

I think it may be finally safe to say this, but sometime in the next two months, I will be escaping Chester. We are buying a nice two car garage with paved drive that happens to come with a nice brick rancher over near Regency Mall. Been working on the deal now for several weeks and finally finished haggling for everything. Now we are just waiting on the bank to process the mortgage.

My poor bikes won't have to live outside anymore. The down side is now I'll have yard work.

Chuck it sounds like you are having fun. Be safe.

Congrats Jeremy! Consider Yard work exercise like a free membership at a health club, cleaning gutters, mowing, weeding, endless things to fix, building stuff all burns calories...

"Escaping Chester" blasphemer! Chester is the center of the universe from which all goodness and light flows.. Once you move out into the badlands you'll see..


Congrats on the new digs and the GARAGE! Call me crazy but I actually enjoy putzing around in the yard. Maybe that comes with old age..

Maybe I'm just not in the right spot in Chester. I just notice that it is where the smell from Shoosmith flows.

Like I said, the deal isn't done yet, we are waiting for the bank to put the mortgage through. I qualify and all that but we are still a long ways from closing. I am excited about finally having a garage. I'll be able to finally get all my tools half way organized.
