Options II

Taking care to avoid the cultural manic broadcast of the I-word (Insurance) here in this entry, the untangling of the 65th birthday snot knot seems to be going well between Hubs and I. His 63rd birthday is in December, so he is just now receiving the wave of important age-related news from the ? ? ? do we have a good name for that body of yaddah blahs yet? Whatever we call ^it^, more and more of it is being mandated by more laws than I care to keep up with. Yo, youthenizer, where's the Ignorance 101 class? I want to study igNORance of your legally mandated wisdom.


I'm not doing so well at avoiding the manic broadcast, am I? Have I simplified that snot knot far enough that I can set ^it^ aside and discuss the strictly personal yaddahs that have been lost in the They Fray?


The strictly personal (They Free?) dialog between Hubs and I hasnae lost sight of the financial planning aspect, nor the joys of talking to medicos who are quoting insurance bureaucrats more often then med school mentors, but. . . 'Tis a beautiful dance God has lead us to. Those new steps damn sure don't belong in the same chapter as Insurance Mania.


Friday's contact with the freight company said the coop puzzle pallet should be here tomorrow afternoon. I wonder if I should experiment with using shredded insurance mandates as lining for the nesting boxes. Does the ink on official documents stain the eggs more than newsprint? Just wondering. . .


Is it here yet?

Hahaha yes, i dont know how you are doing it, the patience in the waiting for the toy. Kudos! As for the ink , not sure, i vote give it a go and let us know, sorry my bad for encouraging, i don’t much like the “I” either. Triple hugs, just a wake up away from the puzzle box yay

You are far from alone in that collective mania, Evergreen. It's been a while since I've had an insurance question any more pertinent than, "Are we safe yet?"

Waiting on the chicken coop feels far more productive than waiting on safety. Is it here yet? All the chicks want to know. Those poor feather babies are looking downright silly in that raptor cage. It is getting hard for them to fit through the door. Babies sure do grow fast.

When I was a Medicare counselor the an acronym for it is SHIP for nationwide which after a while took on the equivalent of mean shit and there were no end of modification to our methods of using it as a curse. In Kansas it was call SHICK so I wander if in your neck of the woods if it’s known SHICT which is even more fun to use as curse word alternatives. Just a thought.

I have entire CMS Medicare training manuals I’ll willingly donate to the shredded coop lining. (Don’t ask why I kept them..., misguided notion my mother and father would actually listen to me as a trained counselor when they enrolled. Wrong.)

Excited your project will arrive soon. Are you going for Tetris or Legos style for building the coop?

Hugs & love!

Hm-m-m-m. . . Running out of cuss words isnae a possibility which ever occurred to me, but ya never know. All the cuss words that have been inspired by the current system only deepen my conviction to leave it to *saner* souls than I. I believe I would throw myself from a bridge if I had to handle your antiseptic exposure. The places "Good Insurance" takes you is part of what has that term on my oxymoron list. The trained insurance counselors and I have very different measures of *Good.* I don't use the *Good Insurance* Hubs buys me through his job, but it still provides more than enough youthenizing shreddables to brood allot of chicks. Your training manual would probably require more shipping cost than the coop.

Gamer I ain't, but ? ? ? What can you build with Tetris? I sure hope there aren't as many pieces as what Legos would require.

Thanks for the hugs and love.

Oh you definitely could build with Tetris but in our house we use it as a way of being a master at such things as packing, putting away laundry, if we still had a dishwasher loading it properly. It’s all about fitting the pieces together effectively and efficiently. Unfortunately i seem to be the only Tetris mast in my house. You should see me pack and load moving vans.

Hugs love & luck my friend!

Yup, packing is where I got my Tetris training.

I build the boxes with a different skill set, hopefully before the moving vans need their tetrising.
