    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I love sloppy joes. Manwich isn't my favorite, but molasses flavored is the best of the brand IMO.

    As do I... and my wife and daughter. We make them a couple times a month in the fall and winter. I haven't made Manwich sloppy joes in a couple of years. Maybe I'll stop by the store and get a can to make for dinner tomorrow night.

    Ah, well, yes, that would have been the smart thing to do, but I guess my brain wasn't quite awake yet.

    These discussions of oatmeal and delicious sloppy joes are making me hungry. I'm personally having tuna on thick bread today. I think I'll have it early now......

    I'm really aching to find the right occasion to call someone a Phillistine today.

    Good luck. It's just not that easy to find someone named Goliath these days. It used to be a big name.

    Thank you for saying that. It's close to lunch time and I was losing my appetite thinking about canned sloppy joes.

    On the far-away island of Sala-ma-Sond,
    Yertle the Turtle was king of the pond.
    A nice little pond. It was clean. It was neat.
    The water was warm. There was plenty to eat.
    The turtles had everything turtles might need.
    And they were all happy. Quite happy indeed.

    I don't like the Fall time change. It makes me tired for days. I'm so tired today, and I inspected a timber harvest, which is steep, rugged, mucky walking. And, yes, you do have to seed the skid roads when you're done. Yes, you do, even if it's not something that you usually do.

    At least I got to meet an Amish guy. He was nice; I usually don't interact with them as the Amish I see are carpenters and I don't inspect carpenter work. He was as surprised as I was to find a wooded area in the middle of an urban area in the industrial Mon Valley.

I hope that everything turns out well.
    Yes it does. Unfortunately, the will was invalidated so he's considered to be intestate. The probate law is clear in his state-statutory heirs inherit depending on degree of relationship and my aunt and I are equal degrees. Either it comes to us or it goes to the state. I never expected anything and wasn't a named beneficiary in the now invalidated will which is why I'm taken a bit aback at the whole thing.

    I am meeting with an attorney next week here just to go over some things to be sure that I understand everything fully and if I need to retain counsel in the state my uncle lived in. From what it looks like, the court has already ruled that my aunt and I are the heirs and it's mostly a matter of the estate being properly accounted for, the real property and effects be sold, and then the estate distributed. More than likely it will take until next fall to have the estate fully dealt with.

    Still looking for recommendations for a cool restaurant in downtown Chicago? The wife has a conference during the day and we are going out to dinner in DT before we head home.

    Also if anyone is free on Friday, I will be wandering the streets. Perhaps an spur of the moment midday Stanfest where we can meet up at a bar and have a Rolling Rock in BUN's honor?
