Greetings from a cooler St. Louis!

We had a nasty storm roll through last night around midnight that dropped lots of rain and lowered the temps…. It was in the mid-80’s most of the day…. My work day went by easily enough…. I spent the day fixing problems and making minor changes to various applications I support. Tomorrow I need to work on some documentation in preparation to turning my applications over to various other developers.

Today John installed an Insignia – Digital to Analog Converter in the motor home today. He received an extra government coupon from Paul B. They went to several stores, but they ended up getting it at Best Buy…. We don’t usually watch “local tv” – usually watch Satellite TV where we have New York City and Los Angeles as our “local” network affiliates, but it might be handy to have on our upcoming trip when it is not handy to setup the satellite dish…

My ebay auctions are doing well – if everything was to sell right now, I would make around $300.00…. I’m not looking forward to them ending because then I have the fun task of calculating shipping – getting everything packed and shipped. Shipping supplies are expensive – so I will probably take some of the stuff to a local UPS store and have them pack/ship it… The smaller stuff I will put in a USPS Priority Mail box and send it that way….. either way, my lunch break will be busy on Thursday and Friday….. I should earn enough from the auctions to get a decent GPS for the Subaru…. or buy rice, dried beans, mac n cheese and hot dogs for when we go broke living in California….. ;)

It was sad to hear the Estelle Getty passed away today…. I always like how her character, Sofia, had great combacks, like:

Rose: Dorothy, you’re the smart one, and Blanche, you’re the sexy one, and Sophia, you’re the old one, and I’m the nice one. Everybody always likes me.
Sophia: The old one isn’t so crazy about you.

or

Rose: What’s gonna happen when there is only one of us left?
Sophia: Don’t worry. I can take care of myself

Anyway, in tribute I took the “Which Golden Girl Are You?” quiz – I’m a Rose…. go figure….

As a tribute – here’s beginning of the Golden Girls from You Tube:
