Day 364: I found the perfect ugly sweater for my ex-farmer husband

Day 365: This is the way the service desk is supposed to look every night. The only thing missing is the person who is supposed to be working here. Not sure what happened to her, but at least the desk looks good.

Day 348: I think somebody wants to play ball

Day 349: I don’t usually post any type of profanity or such, but this time I couldn’t help myself. This is what I found on the bathroom wall at work. Why do people find it necessary to do this? Regardless of your political views, this is not right and not the right way to get your message across.

Day 326: Other random things found on my floor: my reading glasses. Not sure who to blame for this, but Nala is one of the possibilities

Day 316: Please, will you stop working on your computer and play with me?

Day 317: She’s been digging here on the couch for a long time. Maybe someone should tell her she’s not going to get very far.
