Of random notes

Hubby and I did our first 5 k together.It was his first race.We were the last 10 people in front of the cop car and the First Aid cart!It was fun though.They had a nice hot breakfast waiting for the runners after the race.Chick fil A biscuits and coffee and fruits and candy.

The tree went up on Halloween,we went for a traditional look






I got a letter,on Friday, from the local court system thanking me for serving my week as a juror.I am wondering if its a new thing or meant for people who do it for the first time.

The Dog(Frasier) stayed up last night eating a ham bone as big as my head.It was a remnant of my druggie neighbour' s dinner.I want to fling it over the fence at his head.But thats not a Christian thing to do or think so I refrain.

The race sounds nice since it was his first. The tree is beautiful.
The ham bone sounds nice, but not the bonehead next door. keep away....

Good job refraining from chucking the ham bone. I find ramen noodles uncooked and other foods thrown over my fence by the neighbor kid...I'm always tempted to repay evil with evil...

Congrats on the 5k! Good food at the end is always a bonus.

Not sure that uneven hips is a runner thing. I think lots of people have the same issue, but don't realize it until they become active. It could be caused by lots of things. He said it's probably been that way for 10+ years.

Wow to the tree!!
I did jury duty a few years ago -- DUI case. He said his dentures gave him a false reading on the breath test.
I have 17 years dental knowledge; case closed.
