Opening Day

It is a family holiday, it is Opening Day for Baseball and my entire family has gathered for hotdogs and peanuts and baseball at my sisters' house. Everyone but me. I instead am at work and then heading to Shakespeare tonight. This is depressing. It has been overcast and raining all day and it put me into a rather foul mood this morning, only made better by my driving to the wrong hospital this morning. I called the boys and told them to get signout from the weekend without me, I would be there by 830am. No problem, they said, laughing loudly. Still not in a good mood, here.


As I came around the corner near the hospital. I noticed a big yellow thing by the construction site at the drug company. I could not figure out what it was and then I started laughing and my day looked up from there.

This, my blogger friends, is the GIANT Rat that is accompanying the striking construction workers at the site. There is also an accompanying gray rat that I could not get a picture of. They are huge- that is a white Jeep behind it and it towers over the car. They made my day...

Just when I was getting a little down, I went to lunch and the cafeteria had phillies jerseys hanging from the ceiling and hotdogs on the menu. Life is looking up. OH and best of all, I have my laptop back and it only took 4 hours on the phone with the lynksys people to get the wireless router working again. (HP had me reset it and it was down for the count) That, however, is a story for another time. Happy Days Blogger Friends :)

You were sorely missed but we did not want to tempt you away from your education. We had three canines chasing each other around - with Morgun ruling the roost! He was chasing everyone around - without seeing any of them:)

We missed you! but as MB said didn't want to tempt you away from class, only another month to go! Love the rats. I guess the 4 hours with linksys explains why you kept signing on to IM on Saturday.

I don't know what could be more cheering than a giant rat.
