This and That

Of course, Pgh is hopping and jumping right now.  Never expected to see them play so well.  I feel bad for the Bronco's.  New England killed the Steelers last year in the final play off game so I know the feeling.  So much for my son and his superstitions and my buying and wearing my hoodie would be bad luck.  My favorite Steeler's...not that anybody cares....#1.  Jerome Bettis.  Lovely person; never has a bad word to say about anything; took an enormous pay cut two seasons ago when he was injured to continue playing; is from Detroit and would love to end his career with a SuperBowl ring from there; has the cutest Mom in the world.  #2.  Hines Ward...so adorable and really a sweet person; pretty darned good, too.  LOL..and what's up with the scruffy quarterback look?  Jake Plummer and Ben.

Speaking of Joey, he didn't get the job.  He is taking it very well although at first not so well.  The girl left a voice mail message to the effect that his personality was somewhat lacking based on him being quiet.  I didn't think that was quite an appropriate message....uh, where did she get her psychiatric degree from?  I thought a short, brief..."We chose someone more qualified.  Thank you for applying." would have sufficed.  LOL...this was a warehouse job filling orders for restoration parts for old Chevy's...$8.50 an hr.  Joey said I could put this in here.  He did crack me up last night.  He said he didn't get the job because he has the personality of a barn door.  He had my BF and me howling with that one.  Actually, he is very quiet at first but is quite witty once he gets to know someone.  This was not an occupation for him....just something to make some money with until he decides what he wants to do with his life.

My next little rant...LOL...my Christmas present to myself....the dual exhuast muffler....is falling off.  This is my spare car.  I've only put a little over 200 miles on it since the muffler was put on.  They purchased a complete dual exhaust exhaust system (at my expense, of course) but welded the crap to the original rusted brackets on the car.  Boy, my blood was boiling.  I switched from my old mechanic to these guys because the old one was getting sloppy.  The new ones corrected a lot of mistakes the old one created.  Sheesh...now I'll be mechanic shopping again.  My BF is calling them tomorrow.  It's actually his car that he lets me use.  He paid for the front and back brakes for me.  I paid for the dual exhaust system...all $500 worth. 

I'm suffering PSP withdrawal.  I spent too much time yesterday playing around and got very little done around the house.  Here are a couple of valentine's day tags for snag plus the one above.

    

    

Have a great evening all!  Just pulled some ribs off the grill.  I'm thinking of making some kind of cheesy or flavored rice. Joey is on his way home.  He was in Pgh watching the game and is dropping some things off with Megan.

Tell Joey that my brother was quite too and missed out on a few jobs.  Now he makes over 200,00 ayear at one job and almost 100,000 at the other.  So, worry not.  You'll get to where life is leading you.  Take care Chris enjoy the ribs TerryAnn

I am sorry that Joey did not get the job.  He will find an even better one though.  That is the way it works.  When he does find that one great job, he will be really happy that he did not get this one.  Tell him to move to Minnesota.  I could get him a job quick.

Sorry about that job, but I`m glad he`s keeping his sense of humor about it all. Cute valentine graphics! I`m not a football fan, so I am clueless.
Love ya,
Penny

Go Steelers! That was such a good game. Now we have to worry about the Seahawks in a few weeks. Sorry Joey didn't get the job; I think tact on the part of the personl calling him would have been a bit more appreciated.

Speaking of the scruffy quarterback, my husband kept saying that Jake Plummer looked like Jesus! LOL!  I hope no one gets offended by that.  But the guy really looked like him.

I was in Pgh the last time they made it to the Super Bowl (95, I think), and they were going nuts then...I can imagine what it's like now.  I was getting 411 calls from that area y'day and you can hear people screaming in the background...lol.  I know it's been said already, but let Joey know there's other jobs out there, and the person who left that message is well, you can fill in that blank...lmao.  I know how you feel with the mechanic thing--that absolutely sucks!  Have a good day...

Awww, sorry to Joey.  I'm sure his dream job will fall right into his lap soon.  Love your graphics.  The one at the top is just so cute!  GBU, Shelly
