Funerals and Whatnot...

Another funeral tomorrow.

I easily created the 'PRFA Pictionary' cards that Marilyn mistressmarilyn wanted for tomorrow's staff meeting at work. As a morale builder they're skipping the normal meeting and playing Pictionary instead. Clever! All the words/phrases relate to the festival in some way.

Just before leaving to go out to dinner (and then to the office to work), we discovered a bird had gotten trapped in our family room (downstairs) fireplace. (Yes, we're lucky to have two fireplaces in the house.)

Outside at Last!

We bought the Bruce Willis movie "Tears of the Sun" at Wal-Mart on Saturday and watched it that night.

Tears of the Sun

We both adored the film! We watched almost the entire thing again last night! (Have I ever mentioned that I'm a huge Bruce Willis fan? I haven't? Well, I am!)

What else?... Hm...

Yes, Marilyn and I got pedicures last Saturday, over at the shop at Jantzen Beach. They have eight chairs there, believe it or not! (Those things run around $3,000 per chair, so that's not something you see just everywhere.) We walked in and were taken immediately, without an appointment!

Instead of my normal gold (or copper or bronze), I actually got red this time! (With red glitter on top.) Marilyn got what I'd call a jewel color. (Not sure how to describe it. I need a picture of her toes!)

The local weather forecast on Friday was for sunshine and 60 degrees this week, but it's since been changed. But even so, Marilyn and I wanted to be ready to wear open-toed shoes -- just in case! (grin)

Marilyn's boyfriend Tom left a huge box of Frito Lay products on the front porch today!!! (And I do mean huge!)

I opened it and was pleased to find bags of Baked Cheetos (Crunchy) inside! The baked ones aren't that easy to find, either! How sweet of him!

Marilyn was pleased, as she can now take these to the 'special' staff meeting as a treat!!! (Good going, Tom!)

I need to run wash my hair!

One last note -- I'm working on a tutorial to explain how to do the 'bouncing text' effect, seen here:
Bouncing Text effect

It's not hard, but it takes a lot of steps to do it! (grin) It's a fun thing, though. (And I suspect it's a popular effect...)

That's it for now! (About time I updated, though...)
