It’s been awhile since I posted anything here so I thought I’d check in. How’s everybody doing? How’s the California weather, Mike? Summer has already arrived in La Porte although technically it’s still Spring. The temperatures have been in the low 70′s at night and near 90 during the day. A few days last week were filled with some cool, northerly winds. But that was soon replaced with the warm, humid, southerly winds from the Gulf of Mexico.
Mike, Erica and Chase will soon be leaving for TJOC (Texas Junior Orienteering Camp). Erica leaves this upcoming Friday. Mike will leave Saturday. Chase will meet them there since he’ll be driving from Longview. TJOC is held every year. Erica went as a student for about 6 years but she will be teaching some this year since she’s not in school anymore. She’s been going to work at her regular job in the morning, then going up to the ROTC building and working on TJOC stuff, and then going back to work in the afternoon. This has been going on for a little over a week and she will probably continue that schedule for a few more days so she can make sure she has everything ready. Anyway, I will have the house to myself (and Mike’s mother) for about 8 or 9 days.
I’m planning on going to Giddings the middle of this week to attend a care meeting at the nursing home where my mother is. Glenda and I have a few things we want to “discuss” with the staff. It’s a good thing that Glenda lives in town and can visit with our mother on a regular basis because otherwise, I’m not sure she’d get the kind of care she should get. I really feel bad for some of those old people who don’t have anyone to visit them and look out for them. Anyway, I’ll work mornings on Wednesday and then drive straight to Giddings when I get off at 1:00. (Normally, I work afternoons … noon to 5:00). Then I’ll wait until traffic dies down some before I head home.
Hope ya’ll all have a wonderful week. Check in if you get time.

You’ve heard of redNECK jokes? Well, here are some redHEAD jokes. My husband sent them to me and I feel compelled to print them since I’m a redhead myself. Hope you enjoy!
A blonde and a redhead met at a bar after work for a few drinks. They were watching the 6:00 o’clock news and it showed a man standing on a bridge getting ready to jump off. The blonde bet the redhead $50 that the guy wouldn’t jump off the bridge. So the redhead said, “Ok, it’s a bet. I’ll take your $50!” Anyway, sure enough, the guy jumped so the blonde gave the redhead $50.
The redhead said, “Hey, I can’t take your money. I’m your friend.”
But the blonde said, “No. A bet’s a bet. You won it fair and square.”
Then the redhead said, “Listen, I have to be honest with you. I saw this on the 5:00 o’clock news so I can’t take your money.”
To which the blonde replied, “Don’t be stupid. Take the money. I saw it at 5:00 o’clock, too, but I didn’t think he’d jump again.”
What’s a redhead’s idea of the shortest way to a man’s heart?
Through the breastbone.
Do you know why blondes have more fun?
Because there aren’t enough redheads around.
How do you start an argument with a redhead?
How can you tell if a redhead has been using your computer?
By the hammer imbedded in your monitor.
It’s been awhile since I posted here so I thought I’d check in. Hope everyone is doing well. We’ve had a couple of days of really BEAUTIFUL weather … a cool front came through and our evening temps have been in the high 50′s with daytime highs in the mid 80′s. Very nice! Alas! It won’t last long, I’m sure. It never does. So we’re enjoying it while we can.
Sunday is Mother’s Day … Me, Mike and Erica will travel to Giddings to see my mother and to spend time with my sister and her family. Our son, Chase, will meet us there. So Happy Mother’s Day to any moms out there who happen to be reading this. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Since the average life of previous state-wide tests (TABS, TEAMS, TAAS and now TAKS) has been 5 years, we have decided that it is not too early to plan for the next test. The new instrument will be the Texas Assessment of Cognitive Operations ( TACO).
It will have a remedial version (Soft TACO), a regular version (Hard TACO) and advanced version with many more pages (the Gordita). It will be graded on a normal curve ( the TACO Bell).
