Justa lazy Friday

image How cool is this picture? I copied this off the Traffic website for Washington State. I copied this because this is one of the companies I drove for. Heck maybe that's the truck I drove. I don't think the odds of that are to great. They have 16,000 tractors. I enjoy checking on the weather and road conditions in different parts of the country and just happened to time checking this one just right. I think it's so neat that you can check traffic all over the country  from the comfort of your home.

I was checking out "The Street" web site last night. Those of you that like to keep track of the big Pharma companies might be interested in this article isn't it just to bad. It's about time they got side effects instead of causing them,don't cha think?

I'm pissed off, I went to the Airport this morning to pick up Precious Rock. She wasn't there!! You see Momma and I are switching houses for a week with Precious, obviously Ms. Rock thought I was kidding. She said she would like to see some snow because she lives down there in Arizona where the rattle snakes live. I wanted to get out of the snow. And I wanted the chance to stay at a Posh apartment in Arizona. So I thought we had agreed to switch. I was looking forward to laying around the pool reading my "AARP" magazine and getting some sun. But,noooooooo...

I leave you with a joke I found on line somewhere. I'm getting pretty bad about linking back to places. So shoot me already. 

Batman and Robin are camping in the desert, set up their tent and are asleep. Some hours later, Batman wakes his faithful friend. "Robin, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."
Robin replies, " I see millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?" asks Batman.
Robin ponders for a minute.
"Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
Chronologically, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.
Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
What does it tell you, Batman?"
" Robin, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent."

Holly distraction, Mark!
Batman was not fair. Why didn't he payed attention to the tent?
Poor Robin!

lol Mark you really do know where I live! I just woke up and my blurry eyes thought I was on the transportation highway cam site haha.

You know that stretch of the I-90 is closed A LOT for HOURS at a time for avalanche control? I mean you just do not go that way if you have a weak bladder! lol

I hope you weren't one of those tailgating, speeding truckers that toss rocks onto my windshield as they pass me! i'm on my 3rd windshield!

OK find me on a cam later today, I'll be the one waving.

Mark Krusen said...

Yeah really where was Batman when the tent was getting stolen? He was probably on his cell phone or something like that.


I thought I saw you waving one day. I knew that it couldn't have been you. That women wasn't smiling.

How ironic! I woke up this morning and thought, "Darn, I forgot to pick up Mark and Cindy from the airport. I hope he was just joking and they are not sitting there waiting for me." I really would like to do that switch. Are you willing to pay for the airline tickets and can you go to work for me while you're here? Otherwise I can't afford the switch.

P.S. There is NOTHING posh about my apartment except the blob of rabbit fur I call Bubbles in the corner and the fact that I do have a nice view.

Mark Krusen said...

You didn't mention those catches when we talked about it on the phone. I'll start collecting Coke cans along the highway. I'll get back to you.

Now would I have to be nice to people at your job at the mall? If so I'll have to practice that too.

It all seemed so simple when we first talked about it!!

preciousrock said...

The customer always comes first Mr. Krusen! Gotta keep that smile going. Practice hard.

Stephany said...

Well, you two better make sure you take your respective "baskets" with you to each others homes, I mean how could Mark function with a "woman basket"? hahaha

Brings a whole new idea in those sequin purse man baskets...scorpion and rattle snake proof man baskets...the list is endless!

Mark, you do know you'd have to scoop bunny poop and vacuum while there right?

Mark Krusen said...

vacuum maybe,scoop poop.Noop!!

Dear Mark:

Those two penguins may look cute and harmless now; but with a few years of special training and help from the Mother Ship; it's " Asta La Vista Baby ".
