Monday Minute

Monday Minute with Boobies, Babies, and a Blog! Whoot, whoot!

Has anyone you've known personally lived to at least 100?

No, I get rid of them before that and encourage them not to live that long. They get needy at a 100.
Actually, my grandma is 94, so she might.

What material possession do you value the most?

My family photographs.

What do you think happens to us after we die?

Well, our bodies decompose and good guys go to Heaven.

And who gives a shit what happens to us...bodies...they rot. Yucky. Want some pictures. Seen lots of yucky bodies. We are dead. Just need to do your part on earth to get to the Pearly Gates.  And believe me, we are lucky, God gives us a lot of "oh, shits" and forgives us. So you can be a screw up and still get to Heaven. It's a beautiful thang.

Most embarrassing item in your house?

The tornado hit the Great Room. So that is pretty embarassing right now. The other thing is Hubs. Just kidding.

and finally...

If you could rename yourself, what would your name be?
Mariska Hargitay. Rich and beautiful. Duh. I think we were switched at birth.

And stand by for news...later. Two very lovely peeps gave me some awards and I have the new pics for our Chargers.

The river is still rising and holding at our sandbags. We have some leaks, but not major.

One concern we have is the water is soaking into the earth and moving toward the house. It is soaked. I dug down about 75 feet from the river's edge and it is soggy. So, somewhere that water has to go. When it soaks in, it sometimes collapses off the banks. Here are some pics from the first part of the flood and comparing only the road washed area today. I will have new pics later. The storm is coming and I hear thunder. I feel a little rain. It looks like Tornado whether, especially to the east.

Not so swell. Actually, it is swell. Swelling up the river.

Ahoy, mateys!

River View in City. Normally runs about 1/2 this speed and size at this point in the river.

Last week. Now you can't see the sidewalk and it's moved about 150 farther and deeper.

Our road. One week ago.

Road today. It falls in a little each day.

My lovely friends. About 40-50 come every year to enjoy our little oasis. They are enjoying the flood.

This pic was taken one week ago. Normally, all the foreground is a deep dry ravine. All full. Today all this is under water. The river has come up about 1.5 feet since this was taken.

Normally this edge of the river is a 15 foot drop off the edge to the water, straight down. So that shows how high it really is flowing.

I can't capture the entire width of the river. To the left, it still is flowing over our island and goes another 175 feet. One corner of the river on our property is 24 feet deep at the fall flow. Which is when wade fishing is great. That spot now is over 40 feet deep. This corner is running fast, has many eddies and whirlpools, and is over 24 feet deep when it is normally 3 feet.

Storm coming. Water goes all the way to those cliffs with just a few willows poking through.

Glendo, Wyoming. This is where the MIGHTY river ends up and is being held because Nebraska can't handle all that water at once. Weenies. I have never seen the water at this point in the 35 years I have lived in Wyoming.

Although these pics are a few days old with the exception of two...the road update and the house, the river rises daily little by little. The Bureau said the scary waiting part should be over next week. I think we might be OK. As for town and downriver, and Glendo. They are flooding much worse than these pics. Many people are suffering water damage not from overflow, but from ground seeping into their basements in the city.

Since we are normally high above the river except a couple low spots and we have one creek running into the river above us and one by the house...I think we will be OK. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and finger and toe crossing. I think you saved us. The power of prayer.

Tactital Pants...Get Some

Jeanette at Tactical Pants has featured an interview with me on their site. You can read it here.

Meanwhile...roam around the site...check out other stories...buy pants. They feature a great site where you can find a pair of tactical pants for any job. Especially emergency professions.

I use them for everything if you read about it.

And they are one of the greatest things about being a cop...great pants...better than donuts.

Poo On The Monday Minute

1 - Have you ever had any feelings towards one of your teachers back in the day?

No. I wasn't allowed to have feelings. I did what I was told. Geesh, people. I grew up in the stone age when we respected our teachers.

2 - What's the most embarrassing thing that happened while at work? (If you never worked then make something up)

Once I died my hair and it turned pink. I couldn't get in to the hairdresser to get it fixed so I had to go to work for one day. I tried  to disguise it by redying it only to look worse. Needless to say they called me Frenchie and Lincoln (Penny). The public even looked at me and asked what the hell?
3 - When was the last time you crapped yourself?

Probably when I was a baby. Ian, why are we talking about poo again? Men and their fascinations. I swear.

4 - What is one thing you have always kept a secret and why have you kept this a secret for so long?

Uh, duh. That is why it is still a secret. Mum's the word. I'm holding out for the Jerry Springer show before I reveal any secrets.

and finally...

5 - What's your best advice for us habitual coffee drinkers as to not have to poop right after drinking it?
Again, we are talking about poo? Coffee is good for you. Anitoxidants, keeps you regular. And after your morning poo...why do you turn around and look at it? Why do we look at poo? And why is coffee poo soft? My best advice to coffee drinkers...keep drinking and pooping. It's good for you. Ok, my second best advice is everyone that drinks coffee and poops...take a pic...and email it to Ian. Good poops to you!

Sarg is pissed at me.

He asked me to be the squadleader and I said, "No."

Red Lobster burned down today.

I had a gift certificate to go there I hadn't used.


That about sums up the start of the day. Hopefully, the night will get better.
