It seems like it was Friday night just five minutes ago ...

This weekend got away from me before I knew it. I spent a lot of time in the car this weekend, most it by myself. It was some fun Pearl-bonding time! And we had good weather for it for a change, all except for some vicious wind. It was warm and even sunny for parts of it, so I won't complain.

The mother and I are working out a plan of attack for not only Another D*mn House, but This D*mn House, too. Neither of us can stand the current state of things too much longer! It will be daunting to take all this on, but, I've only used one day of vacation this year, so I need to get on the schedule in the next month or so. It's going to be a very busy spring that's for sure.

And in the time that the mother was in the car with me, I've managed to create a monster. While I have only listened primarily to First Wave on Sirius/XM, I made the mistake of introducing the mother to one of the jazz channels. She was like a little kid in a candy store when I showed her how a touch of a button shows the artist and song title. She had a fit.

"That is too cool," she said. "I really like it. How much a month did you say that was?"

Uh-oh ...

Guess I'd better be off to do something to pay for it!
