Observations

I passed by a freshly bush hogged field this morning and there were about twenty buzzards sitting out there having breakfast. It was like a free breakfast buffet. Poor little rabbits, birds and mice. That must have been a horrible way to die. I’m just guessing but I bet buzzards get a large amount of their meals from road kill. What did they do in the days before cars? They just had to wait for an animal to die of natural causes? I’m sure there weren’t too many possums killed by the wheels of a horse drawn buggy.

I also saw mud puddles at my house this morn. That was a good thing. The rain has been dodging us and we needed it. It helps with our water bill.

I am watching the gas prices rise. It goes up about seven to ten cents every two or three days. I’m wondering if they’ll sock it to us again this summer with prices over $4.00. I am not looking forward to that.

Love's Travel Center is open. I was afraid it was going to shut down the old truck stop across the road that has been there forever. It won't. It is NOT what I was expecting. I thought it would be a true truck stop with a greasy spoon restaurant but it's simply a store with two fast food places. That's it.

I made a quick trip to Hattiesburg Saturday morning and since I was by myself I decided to stop in Columbia and get cheesy tots. I rarely get them on the weekends. But the BK was totally shut down when I got there. Closed. Wonder what’s up with that. Needless to say, I was extremely let down and disappointed. I just waited and ate Cane’s chicken for lunch instead.

Then, as I passed by the Favre estate and was admiring the fence and landscaping (that would take probably five years of my salary to pay for) I wondered what the heck is this guy going to do now. And how long is it going to take him to decide this summer. I sure wouldn’t mind seeing him take on the Packers. WOW! What a game that would be. And then again, I think he should just retire, for good, and let his nephew continue the Favre legacy. But no matter what we think, it’s his prerogative. NOT ours.

Friday is my daughter’s last day of high school. Forever. I’m sad but I know life goes on. I well remember her first day of kindergarten. She loved her teacher, Mrs. Teresa. Many of those twenty two children (the smallest class they’ve had at school) will be graduating together next Thursday night at the central high school. They’ve been friends for thirteen years or longer. We will miss little Jesse though. He was badly burned Sunday night and is currently at the burn center in Mobile.

It has been extremely busy in our office, but unfortunately not company wide. It’s simply because we are short handed in the office. I’m hoping production picks up soon. We can only wait and see.

It’s going to be a long, hot summer I do believe.

Aw graduation, what a big night. You are so excited but little do they know how badly they will want to go back! LOL! Is she going to college?

Gas prices should NOT be rising. It's ridiculous what the oil companies are doing to us. :(

Glad to see you posted. I wonder what ol' Favre will do now, too.

Jen,
She'll be going to Co-Lin for radioloy and hopes to specialize in radiation therapy (treat cancer patients). She made color guard so we have one semester paid at least!
