    You've gotta take a shower sometime, don't you? Anyhow, our doorbell doesn't work.

    It's liberating when you get to the point of not answering the doorbell or the phone if you're busy doing something else. Life goes so much more smoothly.

    It took me a while to train myself at work never to answer the phone when I was talking about business to a real person at my desk. Voicemail helped with that, of course.

    One of the simple pleasures of living in country you can disappear from phones, internet and doorbells very easily, just take a walk in the woods and forget your cell phone. You were knocking at my door I was 2 kliometers away in the woods trying not to fall into swamp.

    It's all a moot point, since I am actually supposed to be giving her medication, not just water.

    Now I kind of reminded myself of a story. In the era before cell phones back in 199 something. It was march break and I decided to go back in woods and do some exploring. At times I didn't go down forgot some of the paths. There are two tractor paths/roads on either side of the property that I knew went all down to back and a third in the middle that went down the middle I did not where it went. I went to end of the path and there was trees and some ice on the ground. I though I could get to the hill on the other side by jumping from tree root to tree root and just ended up going around in a circle and ended up on the same side I started on. After getting to the house and getting dry my grand father calls, he says he was out looking for me and I told him where I was. Then he told me I shouldn't of been down there in that area because it was a bottomless bog, he measured with a metal rod to eight feet and couldn't find the bottom.

    eta somehow how my I was thinking root and type route.

    I used to be a meter reader. You´d be surprised at how often that happened.

    She is, yes. She's no longer drippy all the time, and her lungs sound better.

    What rank is he shooting for Miss Gillian?

    I knew a man in the service, back in the early 80's who, never busted, was separated two months before his twenty years because he was still an E-5. Just so he couldn't claim retirement.

    Utter horse poop if you ask me. Complete and utter.

    The best officer I met in my brief Army "career" was a captain who was being RIF'd (Reduction in force) because he'd been in nineteen years and was only a captain. The fact that he'd been an NCO for the first 12-15 years not only didn't help but probably worked against him in that culture. They were begrudgingly allowing him to go back to being an E-7 for a year so he could get his 20 before retiring as a Captain.
