Much Ado About Nothing

That's pretty much what I have to share.  I've been my normal busy person, but nothing really worth mentioning.  I'm still camera-less.  But there really hasn't been much to photograph lately.  I did go play a round of golf the other day with my cousin.  It was only the second round of golf I've ever played in my  life.  I shot a 119.  If you know nothing of golf, then know that that is one horrible score.  If you are familiar with the sport, however, then that's quite an improvement from my original score of 135!  I have an outdated Game Cube that I play Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 on.  I LOVE that game.  I have played it so much that I am now a better golfer than Tiger Woods, and I have more money than him!  What a fantasy!

It was an uneventful Labor Day weekend.  We did nothing special.  Spent time around the house.  Messed with the chickens.  I have some half grown pullets that I want to put in with the egg layers.  Mike has been buthering some of the older hens, so I am trying to replace them.  But I know I can't just throw them in, as the other hens will peck them half to death.  So I have a small coop set us adjacent to the larger one.  That way they become familiar with each other.  It worked before, so I'm giving it another go.  I also have some small bitties that were getting too big for the little coop I had them in, so I moved them to a bigger one.  My cousin, who works on the fishing boats, has been staying with us, as well.  They haven't been fishing the last two weeks, so he's been staying with us, just chilling out.  It's just been a weekend of visiting and resting.

No news on the job.  They advertise jobs for 10 days, and September 10th will be the last day.  So I may know by the end of the week, or it may be the first of next week.  I will certainly let you know, though.

I made my blog rounds.  I didn't comment of everyone, but I did read.  What a conglomeration of posts!  When you think of each post as a whole, it's quite funny to think of it all.  I read of hair, illness, loneliness, luggage, regrets, hibiscus flowers, getting back to artsy-ness, regrets, home buying, and so much more.  Altogether I think it would make a fabulous book!  Have a great week everyone!

Hey Randy,
I think you may be on to something with combining blog posts. That would be a hoot!

I think a lot of us are in the same boat as you when it comes to blogging...

It's good to see a post every now and then though to know you're still kicking ;-)

Dear Randy, I see that you are quoting Shakespeare too!! It seems to me that from what you say, the chicken are nearly a full time job in themselves without your having to go out to work as well. I have been reading quite a lot about Labour Day which I imagine to be a public holiday across the USA. We do not have anything similar in the UK although in Hungary May 1st., May Day, is still a public holiday dating from the Communist period.

I do hope all goes well on the job front. Will keep my fingers crossed for you!

I take it a higher number means a lower score in golf? You know more than I do!

I'm not sure what "buthering" a chicken is (but if it involves killing them, don't tell me!) :)

Randy,
Keeping my fingers crossed that you get that job. And get a camera we miss the photos.

Tracey said...

Hello dear Randy. Glad you're well. I really hope the job is yours...keep smiling. xxxxxx

Callie said...

Yes, hope you get the job, but I would really hope you get to stay where you are and get lots more money. Nice fantasy.

Donna said...

Glad all is well and quiet! I Love when it's like that...
Have a great week Randy!

Fingers crossed for the job - these days you have to go where the money is don't you? I currently have 4 part time jobs because where I live the wages are crap and you have to do what you can to keep your head above water. Still, you won't starve with all those chooks! ;)

Four jobs! That's insane! I really understand that you gotta do what you gotta do, but I'm not sure I could handle that. At one point I was working a full time and a part time, but it was about 80 hours a week, and I was getting less than 5 hours a sleep at night. Hope things get better for you, too!

I think that's a brill idea:

'A Day in the Life Of...': A Blogger's Day.

I can see the title now - full of happy, sad, humourous, homey etc posts all representing people all around the world.

Seriously, do it - you could end up with more money than Tiger Woods after all!?

Hope you guys are well otherwise - Al
