Did yall know it is Friday?

Goodness knows I did. I have been learning a new job at work. See, I work in an office inside a warehouse that stores natural rubber to be made into tires. We basically have a skeleton crew here so from time to time we get a bit shorthanded. Trailboss is learning how to operate a forklift. It isn't hard at all, I just have to remember which lever makes the forks go up, down and sideways. Oh, and to remember to take the parking brake off when I get on. I have never had a standard transmission vehicle so a parking brake is something that I have rarely used. So far it is going well. The heat today is a bit more than I would choose, but it's ok. I can always run back to the office to check emails and messages. So far it is working out well.

Stephanie had dinner ready when I got home last night again. It was delicious. Fettuccine Alfredo. mmmmmmmm She picked some corn from the field next door for the horses, checked the garden and took care of the pups.

We might go to the horse auction tomorrow night. We haven't been in months and it's free and somewhat entertaining. We have friends that go so it would be nice to see some of them again. Whatever we do I am going to enjoy it because I will be with one of my favorite people in the world. My Stephanie.

Forklift driver -- good add to your resume.

I think a horse auction would be fun, but tempting.

My cousin sent me the cutest movie, I think the puppies in it are boxers. I was so reminded of you and Joe when I saw this. I couldn't figure out how to email it to you, so just go to my blog and take a peek. Maybe it's already been on the Internet and I'm the last person on the face of the earth to see it, I'm such a klutz with this stuff.

L, remember you are not alone. Some days I feel very sad, and I don't try to ignore it anymore. I just feel it, and soon it passes as I see the abundance in my life.

Watch out with that forklift. But I know that you can handle it.
