Time to put up the Heineken tree...
shop the ads and buy...
because its Tax-Mas!
The man got a new 24" flat screen TV for his shop.
He's building a special sealed and vented cabinet to keep it in
with a plexiglass front.
I am watching in amusement.
I made a careful choice.
Walking here is hard for me.
I miss my gym that had no traffic, no bad weather,
and no pot holes or sidewalk cracks.
My safe little capsule where I could plug into my
MP3 player and walk without any worry about where I was going.
except for the time that I tripped up the steps and fell down
into a trash can that led to months of physical therapy.
Boy you guys have good memories!
walking here proved to make me very anxious about what was
happening around me as I walked.
I tried walking around the back yard, which is big,
but not very level or safe for my cranky ankle.
I began to walk inside the house.
That worked really well...
except that it excited Roxy...
who wanted to run next to me and leap around...
which led to happy yips and yaps...
and a very grouchy day sleeper waking up grumpy...
and my having to lock Roxy outside...
where she whines and makes me feel guilty.
So my choice this year is a
I am hoping that it will not excite the dog.
If it does,
its back outside for Roxy.
This is too expensive not to use daily.
We picked it up today.
I am so excited!
It was too heavy for us to carry alone.
So we unpacked it in the back of the truck.
I carried all the smaller parts inside
and the man helped me haul in the big heavy part.
Now it lays in a pile right where I want it to live...
in front of a sliding door by our family room
where I can see outside,
open the door when its warm for a breeze,
or watch the big screen TV.
Though most of the time I'll be plugged into my MP3 player.
Tomorrow we have to buy a special surge protector.
Then we can begin to assemble it.
I am so very excited!
I can't wait to start walking on it.
