Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Piping Rock and Roll

Yesterday was... interesting.  I managed to get an 11 mile ride in before going to work... and work was... extremely busy.  I blame the stimulus checks.  And... everybody was nice!  No cranky customers.  Everybody was patient.  Today is probably going to be the same.  Shit, I may end up getting overtime this week.

And I didn't bank all of my stimulus check.  I ordered a new futon mattress for the dogs.  The old one has sprung a spring... literally.  About 2 inches of one of the coiled box springs was poking out of the top.  A sharpey thing like that could hurt the dogs.  And since the money was in my account, I spent about 15 minutes last evening perusing the online selection.  It should be here in about  week.

I was supposed to hand of The Body in the Loch to reader Patty on Tuesday, however, she texted me saying something had cropped up and she wouldn't be home.  This means a day delay or so, until we get our timetables set.

And for those who might be wondering, there is piping in the book, as well as the wearing of kilts.  Trying to be as accurate as possible, I did some research just to insure I was getting it right.  And yes, you can play rock and roll on bagpipes.




Now, ain't that sweet?

  2. I feel very lucky that we don't NEED our stimulus checks so they will be banked for emergencies.

    1. I'm thinking of learning how to play in order to justify my wearing kilts.

  5. God I love a man in a kilt! When my Scottish friend got married another colleague came to the wedding in his kilt (and I came over all unnecessary)! Very handsome!

  6. A guy up at the Woods who fancies me plays the bagpipes. But he and the sound get on my nerves. But he must have good blowing abilities

    1. Actually, it has more to do with how well he manages his bag
