Friday 10

1. Good news to be announced very soon, I hope. :)

2. We've had a basketball hoop in our yard for 22 years. The sucker is rusted and was falling down. I asked my son to take it down. His idea of taking it down was to knock it over. It's been laying in my grass for 2 weeks because nobody will take it apart, claiming it's so rusted they can't get the bolts out. No way will the garbage men haul it off as it has to weigh a ton, plus it's humongous. So what, I gotta look at this thing for the rest of my life?

3. I'll be on a panel ("Unpublished to Published") at the Buckeye Library in Medina, Ohio tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. if anyone's in the neighborhood. *hint*

4. Vick's Vaporub for toe fungus?

5. My yard is starting to look like a real yard and not a scene from Jurassic Park. All I want for my birthday is to go wild at Gale's Garden Center. This sudden interest in gardening is either a sign of old age or my way of coping with Acute Writer's Anxiety.

6. Another middle-of-the-night dog-puke-clean-up (seriously, when will he learn NOT to eat cinders?). Unable to get back to sleep, I amused myself with Mel Gibson's telephone rants and 20 minutes of one of the worse movies ever filmed.

7. A sad farewell to fellow Clevelander Harvey Pekar whose life was explored in the film "American Splendor" (I tried to post a link to the movie but IMDB is not cooperating).

8. I wish I had a pool.

9. I really wish I had a pool.

10. It's so FRIGGIN' HOT! Why do I not have a pool? On yeah--because I'm too cheap to pay for one and too lazy to keep it up.

Wish I could make your library appearance, but I got a birthday party to go to.

Fill up the tub with cold water and get in it. A pool for one!

See you next Friday.

Oh... and it is DEFINITELY good news!

You do NOT want to hear me blab--God knows you've already heard it all. :)

Have fun at the party!

You'd probably end up with a haunted pool!

As long as it's a ghost who keeps it clean, lol.

Anyway, by the time I get a fence and a dog house and my fire ring, there won't be ROOM for a pool!

Good news? Can't wait!

And pools are overrated. (We used to have an above-ground one, and...ugh. All the maintenance was not worth it in the long run!)

Yeah, the maintenance...PLUS my backyard slopes every which way.

Oh, and the sun gives me a rash. I'd have to swim after dark.

Looking forward to good news!

Maybe you could change the basketball hoop into a planter? Two birds with one stone? ;)
