Where is My Notebook?

Tree, read this one through or at least look at all the pictures.  About the same period of time, but I have fewer notebooks and they are not identical by any stretch.  I am willing to wager that you have far more over the last 25 years...

why do you heart the devil

I am not usually political enough to post this type of thing, nor Catholic enough, not even one of those with a BA in English who feels compelled to correct every grammatical error, but when they are all combined it is too funny:

more for the list

This is the shelf next to my writing desk.  It started out organized but now it has far too much responsibility.  There are all of the reference books (Fiction, Nonfiction and Poetry are consuming the living room shelf space almost entirely), boxes of stencils, stickers, stamps, markers, pencils, pens, photo corners, camera parts, lens cleaners, covers, blah blah blah...

I keep things in cans, cigar boxes, photo boxes, wicker, glass, and wood.  I have no color theme, or material restriction other than I do not prefer plastic unless It really is the only thing that works. 

Th desk is no better.  Each drawer is filled with stationary, sealing wax, fountain pens, normal pens, jars of ink, double sided tape, fancy , paperclips, computer cords and cables, the router, my clever charging station with no hinges, the hinges, photos, and small jewelry tools.

hearing test

Sue of Stride came to test Tommie's hearing.  He is going to have a some physical therapy in the gross motor skills area to get up to speed walking and running.  There is no problem in other areas of development, but they have to have a hearing test on file for funding reasons.  Tommie could care less.

Sue came early and woke us up with the doorbell, not an intrusion, but our plan to give the test in Tommie's sleep.  Yeah, right.  Without even waking up he pushed the pod right out.
