Well this plan will only work Doc if your company policy allows carry over of time off into the new year.
Some company’s require you to use it by a certain date or you lose it....
So what is the written policy.....and do not cheat!

I'm thinking about working a few hours this morning and then a few next week then starting the new year taking the rest .

Thanks in advance

Egads Ken- Thought you were self employed "Big Ag", not at Big Yellow, like SP?
Was under the impression that farmers never get "vacation time" off?

I can predict SP's advice: "Come down to Guthrie and give her (real) tractor driving lessons...


Now, I'm gonna chime in, to give SP some "advise", okay?

Since she's so disgruntled at her present job, SP should seek employment at closest JD Dealership to Guthrie, P&K Equip in Edmond?



Benefits of this Win/Win scenario- Call it: "Denny's Destiny Plan"

1. Close to home, only 10.8 miles away, at a job she'd love.

2. Her "Big Yellow" vehicle finance & purchasing experience would be invaluable and fit right in at JD dealer.

3. She'd also be a great JD salesperson- a JD superfan, pouring on the charm, with a little crazy mixed in... (surefire formula)

4. Be able to learn to drive & operate all sorts of JD lawn & ag equipment, while getting paid, without groveling for keys/ permission from Alan.

5. Can "field test" several pieces of lawn & farm equpment at her farm, during each year.

6. Huge employee's discount on JD tractors & parts.

7. Finally, would get to work all day with lots of cute, young men, horse lovin' types, in uniforms, many driving GM products....


Your welcome, in advance, SP!

B67, thought this fascinating historical video would be of particular interest to you, as Canadian and a DIY gearhead....

I had used, but never heard history of the Robertson screwdriver.

Oh, I LOVE IT! My boy Ninja smiled like that, too. I taught him how, as well, but never another, because a person unfamiliar with him, or Dobes in general, did not react well to that show of teeth, and he smiled at everyone he thought might not like him. Smiling got him "good boys" and treats from me, so he thought everyone would do the same. (It WAS kind of funny.) Oh, once we had some friends over for dinner, and Ninny came up and sat in front of the husband and smiled, hoping for a small treat, I guess. The guy got this deer-in-the-headlights look on his face and SET HIS PLATE ON THE FLOOR for Ninja! I said, "What the HELL??" and he told me he thought Ninny was gonna bite him, ROFL!

I guess she had gotten halfway to the solution and then ran around in circles for a while in her figuring before finally completing the work. If she had left out the circles she would have gotten to the answer a lot sooner.

I never omit circles.
I'm the same way. It's a hard way to live, always doing things the long way, which also usually turns out to be the hard way.

I accidentally discovered a really good thing one day, and to me, it tastes almost exactly like a chocolate frosted doughnut (my favorite). Take a piece of toast, put lots of butter on it, then a layer of cinnamon sugar, then carefully place a boatload of semi-sweet chocolate chips on the surface. If you're not quick, it'll get cold, so 10 seconds in the microwave will heat it back up and soften the chocolate chips a bit. Then EAT.

I make my own and will never buy hand cream or lotion from a store again.

I watched an "old" movie this morning that I'd never seen before, for some odd reason. Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne and Katherine Hepburn). I found myself getting all choked up and had to figure out why, and it finally came to me, I MISS CHIVALRY! Even though Katherine is a crusty old broad (very much like me, actually) who can take care of herself, John Wayne was a real man, and felt it was his duty to protect her and look out for her. Today's culture seems bent on emasculating men and you just don't see that kind of attitude much anymore. Anyway, it made me feel sad for the loss of chivalry.

Hmmm... pretty deep for so early in the morning, isn't it?

Oh, and I finally got to see pictures of Toad! What a beautiful boy! I lost a half hour on that page, looking at all the beautiful dogs and reading their stories, brief though they were.

Okay, LaDi, here's an oldtime favorite, with a CT twist...

(Sung to tune of "White Christmas")

Dobe Christmas

I'm dreaming of a Dobe Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where cold noses glisten, and
Children listen to hear
Howling and barking in the snow

I'm dreaming of a Dobe Christmas
With every pet food check I write
None of your days will be boring or quiet
And if two, they love to play fight

Oh, I'm dreaming of a Dobe Christmas
Constant need for petting, despite,
Attention paid them day and night
Dober devotion makes our life so right.

No dog visits for 2-weeks, so thinkin' about attempting to teach Spock and Eva to give a big a "Dobe Smile" on command, like Kaisa, plus not bark at doorbell (bigger challenge) Plus, lots of catch-up home repair projects on worklist...

Nancy Thorson is my friend who puts all the performances titles on my Dobermans--and has for years.

Michelle is the one handling him in some class where he got points (well the class was winners but the ring class was probably Open Any Other Color.

The blonde showing him for the Veterans win is my friend Kim Owen (who whelped the litter for Michelle and could hardly wait to tell me that the first puppy born was a fawn male who was "BOOOOOTIFUL". She's Ravensown Dobermans.

I know practically all the other Dobes shown there too..

Thanks ya'll

How do you guys manage to find each other and do this stuff?

It was great for a long time because because Outlook would let you download what ever juno had collected for you from their computers to your computer--close the download connection which meant that even with a single phone line(you could answer the phone and talk on it and still read email.)

Do I have to tell you WHY I don't like the cloud?

And at some point I was using Firefox--but then it has all sorts of problems and all the computer geneii in my life said --GET RID OF IT.

Now as you all know--I have internet service from Century Link--and in the name of trying to get to the point where I also have a printer again (don't ask--that's a whole ugly story) Ken, came by this afternoon to see how fast he could get me up to speed (how was I to know three little dots meant something) on a variety of things--and he said that my internet service is about 15 times faster than his internet service (both with Century Link. But I'm in populated city with lots of businesses near by and I'm pretty sure that I'm fiber optic and he's not.

Does anyone have preferences on printers? Wait, don't answer that yet--I think we've got a bunch of somewhat used printers that still work at the clinic and they just changed a bunch of them out for newer models that do more tricks.

I beat the poor puppy into submission this afternoon. No chewing on the dog bed (at least not while I'm sitting there looking. No jumping on the cats (If you make the cry you'll attract unfavorable attention from me.)

Poor Joey--he tries really hard to be very good--but sometimes--(so he says) you just have to jump up and run after the cat--or chew on the edge of the dog bed.

I use both Firefox and Google Chrome, on different computers, with no trouble. I think you can do it! I have an HP Envy 4520 printer - pretty easy to use, pretty cheap, gets the job done for me.

Do tell.........
I get pretty dry hands, very easily, and I also have fairly sensitive skin. I swear by two products. One, I use Gold Bond softening lotion, all day, every day. Two, I really like this cream - https://ranchlifenaturals.com/produc...e-creme-no-06/ It's good for people, too. Absorbs quickly, really moisturizes, and it has arnica in it. When my hands start getting sore from all the sewing and typing, it is really nice.

Egads Ken- Thought you were self employed "Big Ag", not at Big Yellow, like SP?
Was under the impression that farmers never get "vacation time" off?


I was just "jerking " SP chain some 6-7 with all of her pizzing and moaning over nothing

Printer ? I use a HP Officejet PRO -- Works pretty good most times then it will throw a fit , Don't want to talk the computer , sometimes - it will start printing then just stop - then is will start printing in the mid of the night !

I'm thinking about working a few hours this morning and then a few next week then starting the new year taking the rest .

Thanks in advance
I'm thinking you should spend it on a trip to Florida. I'm sure I can volunteer some room and board service from a couple of folks in Florida that I know. They'd be glad to have you over for the holidays, I'm sure.

If you're not quick, it'll get cold, so 10 seconds in the microwave will heat it back up and soften the chocolate chips a bit. Then EAT.
OK, so I have to tell a story on myself.

Once upon a time I was prescribed Ambien for my chronic sleeping troubles (which you guys razz me on all of the time pbbt), but only once.

I came downstairs in the morning after a restful sleep to find a bit of disorder in the kitchen.

1. The sugar canister was out on the counter with the lid not quite sealed.
2. There was a cookie sheet resting on the stovetop.
3. There were bits of sugar and bread crumbs sprinkled randomly around.
3. There was a knife, greasy with butter, on top of the cookie sheet.
4. The rack in the oven had been moved into the broil position. More or less--it was crooked, with its two ends on different levels.

After grilling the kids about their nightly kitchen raids, I was forced to come to a conclusion, the only possible one under the circumstances.

I both sleep walk (which I have done a couple of times in the past) AND sleep cook (and sleep eat too, apparently).

Needless to say, I haven't tried Ambien or any other sleep med since.


Funny about my sleepwalking...those who have dealt with me in that condition say that I always ask them about food (skittles once, cookies another time). And I once found my bed blanket in front of the refrigerator in the morning.

Perhaps that is why weight loss is such a challenge for me.

LOL--Joey (formally Foxfire's Ready to Rumble) is black and rust and was 6 months old on December 17.

I guess you could send it to him care of me.

"OK I got the whole Book of Toedie's career. I will be scanning some pictures for my computer and also asked Bug if I could print some pictures for a lady that owns a Toed offspring. Did not expose any information about you and your group's mission."

Had to admire her cover story.
She's a pretty smart cookie--the funny part about this is that I asked her (she recently had a new computer built for her,) if she could do color prints because a lady who owns Breezy (pay attention SSJ) who is from Toad's first litter and is a litter sister to McCoy's mom had begged me for pictures of Toad. So she just used my excuse to get Toad's book and pick and choose pictures for you guys.

Carrier pigeons and James Bond stuff indeed--I'd blame the cats but neither of them has figured out how to operate the computer equipment except for the keyboard.
