Brains!!!

No, this isn't a review of AMC's new original program The Walking Dead, but it should be. Smart, funny, scary, edgy... It's greatness. Unfortunately, this is about the joys of laundry.

As usual, I put my load of work shirts in the washer last night so I would have a week's supply of clean clothes. When I took them out to put them in the dryer I found tiny bits of paper stuck to everything. Meh, I probably left a receipt in my pocket. Sure must have been a big receipt because there's a LOT of paper. Then  I discovered the horror. I found the leather cover to my pocket notebook I keep with all the codes, combinations and procedures I need at all the different stores... "My Brain"!

It was in about the same condition as the undead pictured above.

I keep everything on my PDA, but I also keep a paper back-up in case my phone ever dies. It has done that more than once and left me in a lurch. So I still have most of the info, but there were some procedures that were so long and complicated I only had them on paper. Ugh.

I had to re-wash the shirts 3 times to get all the brains paper off.

Totally off topic of this post....I'm too lazy to look up the one about your oil post......two of our wells came in today. The well watcher caught us a sample.....light, sweet, Texas honey crude....looks like honey, but thinner, almost like dark gasoline. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It's Gawd's Country oil, not sure what kind yours will be, but best wishes!
