Find the HIdden Surprise Announcement




Reindeer running...in Alaska. It's the new thing. I just heard it on the news... Nothing new hear unless you count the case of the missing soap bar in the bathroom. There's so many LED lights here I don't need to turn on the lights. But those little tiny green lights are bad for my eyes. I hate paper cuts. I got this new toilet bowl fragrance-cleaning hanging thingy. Has a nice smell. I saw hawk in the tree yesterday. I wish Spring was here. I love oranges. Snot dog doesn't care about cats. He walked right by one yesterday. The wimp that he is. (sorry snot). Coffee sprinkled with cinnamon is good. Remember the time I put cayenne pepper in by mistake? I love baskets. They're good to put "stuff" in. Have them all around the house. Have lots of "stuff" in em too. Hub used to collect bells. Should I ring them? Ding dong. (Avon calling). I'm retiring from my job on March 28th! I think I'll take up golf in the Spring. I need more sleep. I'll get it soon enough. Today is Tuesday. As they say on Seinfeld, Tuesday has no feel. My people will call your people. I love saying that. I have to shave my legs. Does it matter? Yeah it does. OK, that's decided. HiHo, Hiho, it's off to work I go. (but not for longgggggg ;-)
Peace

All very interesting, but seriously, you're going to retire? Congratulations!

BikerbabeNJ said...

Many many congrats to you ODAT! You deserve it. Golf sounds... ummmm interesting.... yeah, that's it..

Ever consider being a candy striper??? (or is that only for youngsters and not retirees?) You're always full of good spirits and cheer.

Whatever you decide to do will be just what you need at that moment.

Peace.

Dianne said...

so the surprise is that snot doesn't care about cats?

congratulations on your retirement Odat. I think golf is a great idea - do you know that Alice Cooper is an avid golfer? Yes!! Alice Cooper. He swears by it - says it helps keep him sober and is the best mental and physical exercise.

I loved your wandering prose - poetry.

Happy Tuesday
Peace

Yes, I most certainly do remember the cayenne pepper incident/mistake, because like you I always sprinkle cinnamon into the coffee grounds.

RETIRING?? At 39??? Wow you must have lots of money saved up.
Good for you, kiddo.

Wow, you will have changed your entire life in the month of February. Will you and Snotdog travel?

Congrats with all of that...Are you going to go to Hawaii? Cheers!!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

No way! Surely you are much too young. Don't leave us alone toiling in the salt mines! (Umm, my way of saying congrats).

Say It said...

Lets see, you are retiring, gone crazy, need new bathroom soap, going somewhere warm and hot peppery like Arizona or Tx. I think you are moving to Phoenix and joining a ladies nine hole league?? I am terrible at figuring these things out. Congratulations to whatever it really is that you are going to get to do - retire? Yeah!!!!!

Congrats. You ready for this? Not going to get bored too quickly?
Golf is good they say, I have yet to get into the game.

Cayenne Pepper in the coffee, yikes!

Zoinks! Retiring! What hobby will you dive into? I recommend sewing. I think you totally deserve a hige relaxing break. Congrats!!!
