    Last night at dinner my daughter had some oranges and other fruit I was trying to get her to finish eating so I decided to tell her about the dangers of scurvy. Cut to a few hours later when she was supposed to be asleep and she came out of her room to tell us she couldn't sleep because she was too scared and worried of developing scurvy.

    We open at 8. I forgot to open the office door until just now. So busy.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Council item last night. Gave presentation Mayor had 1 question. I had the answer. Approved. Voted to dispense with second reading.

    Total time: 3.5 minutes. That includes two motions and two call for votes.

    Wish they could all be so straight forward.

    You know, I really despise variance requests. Very rarely do they have any merit to be granted, and just about every single one of the people applying for one just give off the vibe that they are greater than the law and can do what they want. If I had it my way, I'd eliminate them from my code entirely. Make it fit or move on.

    Sure, Buddy. How can it be busy if no one can get inside the office and make you busy?


    To those of you celebrating good health, congratulations and keep feeling good.

    Hey, I've had maybe 4 people show up after I opened the door. The city engineer needed help, two guys with permits, and our county counselor who laughed at the inspector that was "attacked" by a raccoon - trash inspection of course.


    How old do my kids need to be before I can just abandon them to the house all by themselves for a day?

    We're planning on 11 yrs old for our middle son. He's the most responsible of the three. That way we'd have 10, 11 and 12.

    Lord willing and the creek don't rise.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    How soon do you want to be on the news?

    I think that 11 is good, but I'd start out leaving them alone for a quick errand and work up to all day.

    If any are pretty close in age, don't be surprised if there's a power struggle over who's the boss. Nip it in the bud.

    The Girl was 12 when momma let her stay by herself between school & us getting home. That morphed into staying home all day and one of us coming home for lunch, which lead to all day.

    I won't have to worry about a power struggle as the oldest and youngest are not type As, but there will be a greater possibility of the middle one getting guff about the rules from his brothers, but my wife and I will be sure to 'judo-chop' that in the bud.

    Congratulations! I can’t keep track of you, but this sounds like a good move.

    Congrats on getting to go home. Have fun with that and having an admin! Life is good.


    The kids are 11 and almost 9. Super responsible. We have no problem leaving them for small errands. I've just got something coming up on a weekend that I know they'll be bored as crap and mom won't be around. I'm actually more worried about the power struggle than anything else. You know the dreaded call in the middle of a meeting about big sister hit me... I'll have to see what the wife thinks. If not I'll just have bored kids for a day.

    My kids have been staying home alone this winter break. 12 and 7. They are pretty good kids. I usually have a list of chores for them to finish, and i check in on them with facetime. The house has yet to burn down.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    My ex-wife wants more money. I don't have shiz to give. Like seriously, you are married now, go ask your hubby to work a 2nd or 3rd job like you asked me to do to keep a "lifestyle"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who in the right mind schedules 3 soccer games, less than 2 hours apart from each other. That's pretty cruel to expect 12-13 year old girls to work that hard on a cold winter's day.
