Welcome to the Bumgarner show! Whew! Between the pitching and the hot bats, they've got it all together tonight. If only the next three games could go so well! Naw, I didn't save the message, don't care to listen to that whiney voice again, but the memory will cheer me up. You got anything going with your folks tomorrow?

Double whammy is right! Talk about adding insult to injury! The Cowgirls messed up quite a few peoples' weekends. Yep, BIL called from the road last night to say all was well. Chuck was at poker so I just let BIL leave a message as I really wasn't up to talking to him. Seems like you've got the HotDog FP magic going - keep it up! Four more wins isn't much to ask, but they'll sure have a battle on their hands. But hey - they made it this far and there were times when even that looked like a pipe dream! Goodell still hasn't decided whether Aldon Smith can return early from his suspension. There's something else to hope for!

Another great FP today! Congrats!! As for FF, we had a win in Chuck's league and a loss in mine this week. That keeps up out of the basement in C's league (13 out of 14 - woo hoo!) and it only moved us down from 2nd to 3rd in my league, so no big deal there. The only bad news was that in my league we played the Cowgirl fans and Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray just killed us. Now that was depressing!

Well how very nice of you - thanks! And a 2540, too! Perfect! And it pays to always read the instructions. Of course, it also helps if you understand the instructions as well, which I often don't when it comes to computers and such. Ah well, I'll muddle through. When it comes to poking fun at BIL, be my guest. Everybody else does it. How can you not? He's just so clueless. We always use timers when we'll be gone. A great invention, me thinks. How odd that Teach didn't know about the writing exam a little sooner. But who knows. It happens. You were probably just about ready to head out the door, so it's nice that she caught ya. Chuck's off to poker and I'm trying to get enthused about this football game but it just ain't happenin. I need to work on my Elf adoption lol. Not sure that'll happen either.

Oh, ok about the printer. I feel better now. And if I can't figure it out I will definitely check out Youtube. Great idea! That's a perfect analogy - and it's BIL to a TEE! I'll be sure to pass that along to Chuck. He's off at FIL's house now. BIL told him that the central heat wasn't working and he wants to set up some timers to have the lights go on and off after the sun sets so that it looks like someone's there until his cousin's kid can move in. I sure hope he doesn't find any other problems. BIL was there for a week by himself so there's no telling. How are the kids doing in school? Have you been working on Kahn with them or does the teacher have you helping with artsy/craftsy things? I sure hope it's the former. =)

That Manning fellow is a freak of nature, aifinkso. I enjoyed the conversation he had with Bob Costas, the mini man. Seeing him with his football "heroes" was pretty cute. You're so right that BILidaho just have NO clue. They continue to amaze me in that regard. If fact, sometimes I wonder how they manage in life. Here's a good story: Chuck was telling BIL about our health insurance and how much it cost us in the last few years before we got on the Obamacare thingy, and he asked BIL if he had the same problem, being "self-employed" and all. He said "No, I don't have health insurance. I don't need it. I eat right and I pray." Oh Kay, BIL. Good luck with that. LOL! All Chuck could do was shake his head. I heard that about Aldon Smith too, and I hope it's true cause they sure could use him. As for the printer, the answer is no! I am now actually kinda scared to even start on it since you mentioned that about the wireless part being a little bit of a problem If it was a little bit of a problem to you, I have a feeling it's going to be a major ordeal for me, being the computer-illiterate doofus that I am. We also bought a new TracFone and i spent over an hour this morning trying to switch the minutes from our old phone to the new one on the computer before finally giving up and calling their customer service number, which of course took another hour before I could get a real person. I've managed to get the box the printer came in open but I'm still working up the nerve to actually look at the set-up plans. =)

What a week to have to play the Broncos. They had all the momentum going in and outplayed the Niners all night. I wish the Niners could get healthy. It would sure help. Turns out we weren't finished with BIL after all. We were just sitting down to dinner when somebody starts pounding on the front door. Guess who? (Apparently he couldn't find the doorbell. No surprise there.) Lucky for him, he'd already sponged dinner off of their cousin's family because we didn't have enough food to feed him. We went ahead and ate in front of him. Rude, but tough doodies. He decided to leave this morning and I sure hope he follows through. To top it off, Miss Idaho called earlier to ask Chuck all the same questions he's already answered several times. He's also sent them emails with all the info, but I guess they didn't bother to read them. Her hubs got on the phone after a while and Chuck repeated everything once more. Then the guy tells Chuck that he has a "millionaire friend" with a great CPA so he's going to call that guy. Wow! You have a millionaire friend??!! We are SO impressed! I bet the guy's CPA charges millionaire fees, too. Chuck said good, call him cause I don't have anything else to tell you. As for FIL's house, it's in pretty bad shape and will need to be sold as a fixer-upper as Chuck doesn't even want to think about getting into all of that. He did hear from one of his friends about a guy who might be interested in buying it, as he's in the business of buying, repairing and reselling fixer-uppers. That would be ideal. Okay, enough whining. Sorry, but it felt good to get that out of my system. Have fun at school today! =)

Well we can commisserate with each other :( Didn;t watch it but Broncos did the 49rs in also. ANd the cadinals at 5 -1. Still 10 game to o so anything can happen. Worked til almost dark and tomorrow we really think we can finish it. Chatted with out neighbor for a bit and we've inspired him to clean up his side right along the property line. Otherwise they keep a neat yard.

Yeah, I really miss all y'all on here...can't access ICHC at work, it totally and completely borks up the compter, to the point I have to re-boot it! I'm at home so hoping my laptop won't puke cuz I'm on this site....Mr. Charlie is doing well, lots and lots of therapy work, so we have been busy. The hubby is doing better after being very ill, enough that he has been sent to Indonesia for work :( and isn't due back until Christmas. Hope all is well with you and yours. "They" are supposedly going to try and fix our work compter, so if it works, I might actually be able to get on here more! (paws crossed!)

Forget that $40 an hour! I think the main reasons he left were (1) Chuck finally spelled it out to him that no money was forthcoming any time soon and he was broke, and (2) Dallas had asked him to look into a few simple things concerning selling the house, he blew them all off and she was starting to get on him about it. Plus he didn't want to have to fix the storm door. But who cares - he's gone and yep, I'll be inserting that phrase into my conversations for a while! Chuck has made arrangements with his cousin's son to stay at the house for the time being. He's a good kid - taking classes at college and working about 30 hours a week, having to live at home to save money. So I'm sure he's happy to have a place to stay on his own. You really do have a lot of great Becky pics! Fun to see a bunch of them together! Sucks about Stanford. Don't know what'll happen with FF today but we're not looking too bad in either league for a change.
