Random thought for the day

When a semi breaks down and has to be towed by one of those big semi-tow trucks, does the broken down semi have to be unloaded?

I ask because I saw a semi being towed the other day, and if it takes a semi-engine to haul all that stuff in the first place, imagine the engine it takes on the tow truck to tow the broken down, fully loaded semi! And if it has to be unloaded before it can be towed, well that's a lot of work too.

Last night I fulfilled a dream...

I went to see George Strait in concert! I had an amazing time and I'm so glad I finally got to go see George. We had fantastic seats and I could see the stage at all times. He did an amazing job (I expected no less) and I hope that someday I get to see him again. I forgot my camera, but here are a couple of pictures from my phone that I took of the big screen.

See April Work

Since my blog is actually titled "See April Work," I thought I'd show you where I work. Don't worry, I just mean my desk. I won't say where I work (for those of you out there in blogland who don't know me personally), and none of the pictures show any identifying information. But, since I spend the majority of my life at work, here you go.
Here is the view when you walk into my cubicle (yes, I have a cubicle again...but I hear when we move floors I'll be moving back into an office). Can anyone find my iced latte on the desk?? And notice the card on the wall that shows two cute little wiener dogs (not nearly as cute as my Bruiser).















Here's the left side of my cubicle, when standing at the entrance (it's sort of messy). Notice my awesome old-fashioned stapler by the light?? And what is that in the window, you may ask? It's a Governator bobble-head. Emily always turns him around or puts him in a corner.














This is looking out from my cubicle (well the right side of the cubicle near the door). I don't like files on my desk but these are my working files, as well as my inbox and some special projects. And yes, I have a whiteboard. I love it. I wish it were bigger.














This is a close-up of my desk area. That's Mom's cool electric stapler that shows you the inner workings (I asked for it when she retires but she gave it to me early). Then there's my little dollar piggy-bank from Target to hold my change. Me and Grant, my awesome double-sided stamps (everyone should have those) and my other electric stapler. Yes, I have three staplers. I just can't get rid of them. The one on the left is decorative, the one on the right is the most efficient stapler I've ever had, and my cool old fashioned one is, well, cool.















Okay, last one - here's me sitting at my desk (sorry it's blurry). Get it, "See April Work." Okay I'm not working, but it's after five so I can take my picture if I want.

Random thought for the day

As I came up to a stop sign today (and of course completely stopped, looked both ways and in NO way rolled through the stop sign), I had a thought. When we Californians stop at a stop sign, but do not come to a full and complete stop, we call it a California Stop.

What do people in other states call it? A Michigan Stop? A Nebraska Stop?? It just doesn't have quite the same flair...
