a lot of this and that


 its
 been
 a strange
 a weird
 week

 first
 there was that
snow
 then
 there was more
snow
totally unusual for this time of year 
really

 usually
 its too cold to snow in december and/or january

 toonman called me on tuesday at the office
 he isnt much for phone calls
i had been thinking about him 
when the phone rang
and
it was
him 
i
was
surprised

 seems 
there was some sort of weird glitch
 with our checking account
 it had vanished
 yup
 a check he wrote
 was sent back
 with a note
 'no such account exists'
 or 
bank words 
to that effect
 long story
 somewhat shorter
 it turns out
 toonman
 opened
 a 'new' box of checks 
in fact 
they were
 very 
very
 old
so old 
the bank coding for the account
 was 
wrong 

the bank gave him some temporary checks 
new ones are ordered
 so alls well there

 the cats
 also
 seem to be reacting
 to
 the weirdness too

 i had some chicken cacciatore for dinner 
tossed the bones in the trash
  tied the top
 to keep our garbage picker harry out

not long after dinner
 i heard
 the trash can fall over 
harry had gotten into it and had a chicken bone

someone
 opened the trash
 forgot
 to retie it 
harry was quick to take advantage
 i had to wrestle a bone from him 


 at 2 a.m.
 i heard a noise 
got up
 found
 jack 
in
 the garbage
 the 
floor
 covered
 in
 coffee grinds


 someone
forgot
 to 
tie up
 the 
garbage bag
again

 there i was
 at 2 a.m. 
cleaning 
the kitchen floor

 yesterday
 i was sitting at my desk doing some paper work
 okay
 it was very quiet
  i was doing the crossword puzzle
 when
 i heard
 a weird noise
 a sort of
 pop

 my iMac screen went black

 turns out 
it blew
 its power board
 or 
some whatsit that makes the computer work 
i am so lucky
 the techs here
 sort of work with us
 my hard drive was put into a new iMac 
and
 all is well

 lord knows
 whats
 going to happen
 next

so
i am going
to
 just

  1. Dang cats. Coffee grounds on the floor are impossible to clean up, or so Heather tells me. (just kidding)

    Sounds like your IT guys are better than ours. Oops my present bosses boss is our former IT VP.

  2. We recently had a raccoon spill our garbage all over the road in the middle of the night, waking the dogs and waking me and causing me to have to clean it all up the next morning. So now the garbage can has to stay in the garage until Tuesday mornings when I have to remember to put it out for trash pickup. It's a bother.
    I love the photo! Good Luck finishing up the rest of the week without incident.

  7. With black bears in the area our garbage stays in the garage until morning.

    Oh and doesn't trouble come in threes, or is it fours?

  8. Oh, cool photo Daryl.

    Good sentiment, too. And darn those trash-pickers!
