Well the short vacation is about over and time to get back in the saddle again with a new contract. I start next Monday and my contract is for six months or longer. Whooohooo! I made back to Texas where I wanted to live, found me a job in a week, and a place to live with a real bed.

Life is good.

Good for you, Spooky. That sounds great.

I wonder what kind of gift Haskins would bring?

If you don't mind saying, what part of Texas? I used to live there.

Maybe, a special rodent of some kind, or other...

Good luck, Spooky. Get a cat.

Congratulations, SpookyWriter. Speaking of "back in the saddle again," wasn't that Nelson Rockefeller's refrain before is untimely death?

So all that talk of bringing us Swiss chocolate and Swiss cheese was just a big tease? Ouch.

Congratulations!

Congratulations!Nope, the role in Zurich is for USB but they were too slow. Besides, they'd only pay me 75k euros. I can't afford to live in Zurich on that money.

Thanks for congrats. I'd rep you, but I don't have those privilages anymore.

I still want to know if your pesky fly followed you to Texas.

I still want to know if your pesky fly followed you to Texas.Yes it did. But this one is five times bigger and has an attitude. Don't forget this is Texas.

About those cats. Do they stand quietly and just stare at you?

Yep, everything's bigger in Texas. Wait 'til you meet the mosquitoes next spring.

I once had one come at my head, but I ducked and it stuck its snout into the oak tree in my back yard. I left it there to die and rot away.

After the bones bleached in the sun I used its ribs to make a picket fence.

Joe, I simply can't take you seriously with that wreath on your ass stinger.

they're really cleverly disguised spy cameras -- you didn't know? watch what you say and do around them. who you talk to. most of all, don't act suspicious, relax, keep your voice level. smile. if you leave food out, they might even close an eye now and then.
