CPA Gift Boxes
Golfer's Box
Bobby told me last night that he needed CPA gift boxes for the end of tax season which is Tuesday. His "Trusty Assistant, Ruth" normally does this for him and always does a great job,but she is out with back surgery. I thought, "Well this is something I can do to help Bob"; so this morning I told him I had an idea. We would use a banker's box (which is a box for tax records) full of items to use in leisure time. Golf items, coffee, magazines, sunscreen, relax lotion, movie coupons, etc. etc. I thought they turned out pretty cute. Bobby said, "They're cute, but you know Ruth has a real talent in this area." OH RUTH-COME BACK TO WORK! I obviously am not "Ruth"! Ruth has worked with Bobby since she was 18 and she is able to anticipate what he needs before he has to ask. I don't think I will be asked to fill her capable shoes again, unless necessary.
We ran 10 miles this AM. It was a perfect morning for a run. We lost Mona after mile 3 and Ivory at mile 5. Larry took pity and slowed his pace WAY down to run with me. He "Kissed the Sidewalk" just before the old postoffice. He may have broken a rib. He took quite a fall and I saw it happening, but it was so fast, I could not help. He fell on one of Ruston's "FINE sidewalks" on a spot that I actually have fallen before. The danger of running is the falls we all occassionally take. I was just happy to finish the 10 miles, and now I wonder who I will run with Monday if Larry is unable. HUMMMMMM, I WILL THINK ABOUT THAT TOMORROW!!!!

Kissing sidewalks?! guys are stranger than I thought...

Seriously tho, I keep talking about the pros of running the here is just another reason the track looks more inviting. Just put your mind on auto and pretend you are someplace else....the track is a blank slate.

I will take one of those boxes anyday. No one ever gives me anything. I am always giving food and making food for people. I get squat in return.

You runners are dropping like flies!

Stacey, how sad that noone ever reciprocates! The chef that taught some of the cooking classes I took told us that noone ever invited them over to eat. The truth is that we all are probably intimadated by your great talent. He also told me that, even if it was for a hotdog, he would love to be invited out, so I cooked for him one night. He was so gracious and not a disparging word was said. You need to post about your feelings about reciprocation-even if you are bringing a bottle of wine or attractive dish-people need to be thoughtful!
