Fading Memories of WHS

Monday, February 27th, 2006

I was trying to look at the IPIX virtual tour at the WHS website – it crashed my Firefox browser and wouldn’t change images for me in IE. But being the wannabe hack that I am I found the panoramic images. Sure things change – the Senior Hall must have been where the old wooden Senior locker were. Not having my yearbooks or any of the pictures I took myself – it’s getting harder to remember.

I’m debating about loading the images up with my WHS stuff – the images are rather large.

More on San Francisco

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

Just when I was getting excited that the flights the group were booking for trip were going go through Denver, I get a call telling me to throw away the tentative itinerary I was given. Now we are being routed through Las Vegas to Reno. The person booking the trip booked us on Southwest – the no frills airline. And the closest Southwest flies to San Francisco is Oakland – so now ground transportation has to be booked from Oakland to San Francisco. At least I found out the plan IS to find a hotel in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. I suppose the good part is that I’ll be splitting the room cost three ways – but then think about it. On second thought, don’t. I need to focus on my tourist plans for San Francisco and learning how to use the sleep timer and the alarm clock on my iPod. The woman who has to fall asleep to a TV on a sleep timer may not be able to do that with 2 other women.

Every Picture Tells A Story

Monday, February 20th, 2006

I added Rod Stewart’s Every Picture Tells A Story album to my iPod – it’s one I grew to appreciate and at times relate to.

I grew up with the love of taking pictures and with the age of digital camera’s I wish I had more hours in my day to take more pictures. But then my pictures really aren’t all that good – but I still like taking them.

Random thoughts

Monday, February 13th, 2006

Another one of those days when I’ve got a thousand different things going through me head. The top two are the Reno/SF trip and thoughts after watching “To Kill A Mockingbird”.

It’s a Monday and so much to get done. Still playing nursemaid/Dr. Mom to Cody the new kitten. He’s on antibiotics for 2 weeks for the sinus infection – so he gets pilled twice a day. Then there is the eye and nose cleaning. After I do Cody I go ahead and clean up KittyBoy’s eyes too. Need to find gauze pads in bulk – they seem to work pretty good.

The replacement iPod is working very well – the click wheel was not working properly on the other one. The Apple “repair” program is very efficient – they send a DHL box, you pack it up and send it back. Two days latter I had a replacement.

Trying to coordinate flight plans with a group of women is going to drive me crazy. The last idea that was proposed was to rent a van and drive to Reno/SF. Are they crazy? I don’t have that much vacation time and I’d be dead tired when we got there.

I think I’m just going to book my own flight. I’d love to schedule a flight that I change planes in Denver – with maybe a little layover. I wouldn’t try to leave the airport – but just a little more time than the mad dash from plane to plane. If I can’t connect through Denver, Dallas or Houston is okay. The flight from San Diego connected through Houston but I barely had time to make a potty stop before I had to get on the plane to Birmingham.

Still haven’t figured out the San Francisco lodging yet. Reno is already set for the Eldorado Hotel Casino. Turns out we are flying in the day before we bowl – so that’s a nice break.

Finally got the shift time info too Team is June 28 at 7:30PM with Doubles and Singles scheduled for June 29 at 11:00AM. I’d like to know how they came up with the team name: ” Rolling For Money & Fun” – Yeah, uh huh, I’ve been bowling so bad lately, I don’t see any money coming my way.

I’ve offered to do a partial sponsorship of the bowling shirts – have my logo on the sleeve. Found a cool Port Authority Silk Blend Camp Shirt that I liked. And I found one in a celery green – LOL, the color of money.

I watched “To Kill A Mockingbird” yesterday – okay I admit I never watched the movie. I had some thoughts about it but, I guess I’ve found something that is better left unsaid…

Meet Cody

Friday, February 10th, 2006

Cody is the newest addition to the family. We’ve nicknamed him SkittyKitty because he is still a little skitish. He comes from the same breeder that we got KittyBoy from but he’s about half the size of KittyBoy. You’d think that with KittyBoy being bigger he would be more dominant. Sure we had some extreme hissing the first few days but this morning I put out KittyBoy’s dish of FancyFeast Cody wandered up to it while KittyBoy was eating it. KittyBoy backed away and let Cody eat it. You’d think he would have smacked him but he didn’t.
