Poor Tina. She’s stuck along side the road between McGregor, MN and Aikin, MN. She blew a tire on the way to check out locations with her daughter for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. It’s breaking my heart because I have to work and I don’t have any vacation time yet. Thankfully she has roadside assistance. Unfortunately, it’s pouring rain where she’s at.
Worst thing of all? It’s her birthday. I’ll be buying her new tires for a gift.
Okay, I managed to get in a run, and make me some breakfast before Tina got out of bed. She’s having her morning coffee and once awake is going to start cleaning. As we have two different approaches to cleaning, it’s best I get out of the house and out of her way. She bulldozes through cleaning where as I take many breaks.
We compromise though. I’ll do the laundry later on today after she’s done her cleaning. So, I’m going to take my MacBook Air, head to Beaner’s Central, and do classwork. Well, first I have to finish breakfast, and take a shower.
And she’s currently sleeping soundly on the couch.
Well, where do I start? How about with simple pictures?

Okay, we did walk around the zoo as well, but the animals really were not cooperating. And, to be honest, the amount of people made it problematic at best to take pictures. It was easier to take pictures of the plants and sculptures.
Sheesh! Everyone’s a critic. That is, if everyone happens to be the silence that is the readership of my blog.
Anyway, I do have a few announcements. One, Tina Rife and I are living together. She finished college in December, found herself unemployed in January, so we moved her from Green Bay, WI., to Willow River, MN on February 14th, 2015. That’s right, Valentine’s Day! It also happened to be the windiest day of the month. Since then we’ve worked at making what was my stark apartment into a cozy, comfortable home. Gone are my futons; one I was using for my bed and the other for a couch. Both are now in storage. We have her couch, her Queen sized bed, my love seat, and our chairs. We purchased other things to warm up the place, like an area rug. There are a lot of other improvements we’ve completed, and others we’ve planned. So far it’s gone well.
Also, though I might have already mentioned this, I have been promoted at work. It means an increase in pay with an increase with responsibilities. That too has gone well so far.
Finally, I still have tax return money left over, so I bought Apple TV. Talk about a nice way to display my MacBook Air on my HDTV! Not to mention the ability to buy movies and store them on my iCloud account. Looking forward to playing with that new toy!
Okay, that’s enough for now. Everyone can just quiet down even more than they have been and get back to not being a readership and not yelling at me, just like always.
