    Saw this quote on a t-shirt at the game yesterday, had to search the internets today to find it, I hope it makes you smile, too.

    Howdy-ho, Klatchers! I'm back, again. Happy Birthday wishes going out to Alee D (1 day early) and RH (2 days early). I wanted to be the first. How's everyone doing? Things are starting to settle down here; work has just been frantic the last 3 months.

    Good morning all. How is everyone doing today? Who posted the pic of RH above?

      Good morning! Are you back from your trip?? Details please. Isn't RH's birthday this week? I had it on my calendar, but they upgraded (if you can call it that) to MS Outlook 2010 and I'm missing calendar items....

      @Truth- how was the trip? They've been keeping me busy with training and the job. Missed talking to everyone here. I can't find RH's email address anymore thanks to updates from this phone system. What have I missed?

    • Truth™@JBJ, ABK

      Trip was OUTSTANDING!. Many thanks for asking. Hard to get back into work mode after such a good time off.

      Glad to hear the training is well and email me if you need RH's address. I have it, but do not want to post publicly for obvious reasons.

        I thought I had his e-mail address but when I sent him a BD cheer the system bounced it right back as being undeliverable. Do you have my e-mail add and if so can you send me RH's current add?

          @ Michele- my Facebook is being wild too. I sent you a message and it didn't go through. I swear "updates" should be called "messing up things".

          September 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          Well, (((Hugs!))) to you sweet thang! Will continue to play around with FB. Eventually it works........

          If you're on FB, look for me on ABK's probably the only person we'll have in common.

      • angrybabykitty

        @Truth- I don't have anybody's email address. Mind is my screen name at gmail. I'm glad you had such a good trip.

        September 17, 2012 at 2:12 pm |
        • Truth™@ABK

    Good morning Klatschkies! I believe we have some birthday's this week?? RH and AleeD Happy Birthday!!

    Was in NC all last week for business, and my one disappointment was that the Doubletree Charlotte stopped making Shrimp 'n Grits about a week before I arrived. Boooo

      AHH...but do they still make those Monster Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies. They were always my Mom's favorite.

      September 17, 2012 at 11:32 am |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@Ms. Grammar

        Yep, I tried to resist them, but finally folded on the last day... We stayed at DoubleTree Raleigh and then DoubleTree Charlotte, so I did pretty good only having one cookie! :)

    Busy, busy busy... Hopefully today won't be as bad.

    So I hear that the Dolphins actually kicked butt yesterday!

    My goodness, can't believe i'm first in at 9:30 am ET, wow!!! Well, the coffee's on but you'll have to provide your own breakfast, I neglected to bring enough for the class.

    I went to the Giants game yesterday, last minute thing, but it was GGRREEAATT!!! (to quote a spokes-tiger for Frosted Flakes). The seats were fantastic, the game was exciting and they pulled the win in the last minute. Now if Eli hadn't thrown 3 interceptions it would have been better.

    How was everyone else's weekend, good, I hope!!
