    My only focus for being here is to get into vet school. My major is just giving me so much hell right now.
    I think you're on the right track.

    If all those other students are not paying attention to their studies, and you are, it's only logical that you'll be way ahead of them in the end.

    I know it's rough now, but I'd bet it'll get easier as time goes on.

    I'm 55; one thing I've learned to be true is this.......if you come about something the hard way, you tend to hold on tighter.

    In other words, the more difficult it is now, the more you'll appreciate it later.

    Hi Rex!

    Some shots from the kid.... Main Street in my home town... it looks like rain but she said it was actually snowing.



    And the old homestead.... lots of work still to be done, but the outside will have to wait until next spring when its warm enough to paint.

    Thanks, you guys. I am really in need of some encouragement or motivation tonight. I am really not feeling good about this exam ATM.

    That is snow indeed Jody. I can see why you live out in the desert Glad things are coming together for them. Does she like the cold? I'm sure you know what type of winter they are in for.

    How's it going Rob? I see your back home again. I know the last time I kept up with you, I think you were in Washington State for like 3 weeks or something. Good to have you back.

    Feeling anything about it means it's important to you. This is good, most people just don't care.

    You'll do fine on it, but in the meantime, try to relax a bit.

    The 3 weeks turned in to more like 3 months.....

    But yes, it's good to be back home again.

    Things are going well here, my daughter (18) took very good care of the house while I was gone. It was a good experience for her; kind of like moving out without actually moving out!

    She LIKES cold weather... she would freeze me out when I'd visit in Nor Cal. The other day it was in the 40's, they had a window open and she was sitting in a robe thing eating ice cream.

    She is nuts.

    She's always wanted to live somewhere that it snows. The first day it snowed and it melted right after she was disappointed. I told her there would be plenty more. Well.... we'll see how she feels about March when you still can't see the ground.

    Oh wow 3 months. I thought you were gone for an extended period of time. That's always the best way of being able to live alone, still being at home. I'm sure she either enjoyed it or at least enjoyed certain aspects of it.

    Or wait until the 1st time she has to shovel the snow. Now that is definitely a work out in itself. 40's, the window open and eating ice-cream........yep she is nuts. She actually may enjoy the 1st winter, but I doubt a lifetime of them.

    I want to move to a warmer climate myself. That or for the Bay Area to acquire a warmer climate

    Touche' my dear, touche'.

    The kids moving closer could happen in the future, who knows what will happen. But I understand for now, they need to live there for the time being.

    Yep, get your sleep while you can. Hope your week isn't too bad for ya. And on that note, I'm not far behind you in heading off to bed.

    Sometimes I wonder why I haven't had some sort of stroke or something......

    Lol.
    Are you a computer programmer?


    Pengy, I love your snow photos! I love the snow!

    Re: RCMC# 121: Life is a highway... with friends along for the ride!

    Morning all!

    Clara, Rob does electrical work. If I'm not mistaken, I think he is an electrician.

    Its spirit week at school. This week is what is called the Battle of the Bell. There is a bell trophy that goes to the school that wins the football game this week. We are playing our "cross town rival" 29 Palms. I think they won last year. We'll see if we get it back.

    So today is Black Out day. I guess we are suppose to dress in all black. Tomorrow is crazy hair day, Wed Halloween so they can come in costume, Thursday is... fake and injury day??? Whatever that is... or who ever came up with that one. Then Friday is standard Black and Gold Friday, the school colors.

    And off I go for the day....
