    Well, it seems like this might be my last month participating in any snail mail related stuff. =l the company I worked for shut down yesterday so I am jobless... and now I am torn between what I want to do with my career.
    All options I have require some time off for training... mainly looking at California Highway Petrol, becoming a doctor, or being a coast-to-coast dispatcher

    Anyone have any thoughts on these areas that you can share with me? Possible tips even?

    Paradox, I'm so very sorry to hear about this.

    Hmmm, retraining. I would strongly urge you to talk with folks in these fields. If you're looking at the CHP (as an officer or in office or in some other capacity?). If doctor (what area - pediatrics, general practitioner, eye, ENT, etc.). I'm not sure about the coast-to-coast dispatcher. I've worked as a dispatcher before, though, and it can be fun and it can be challenging.

    Wishing you the very, very best.

    I also hope that you'll stay on the forum and just check in from time to time!

    I love his way of quirky faces! This seems easy enough but when I try,
    my lips look like large mustaches! LOL But, it is fun!

    Awesome TinaMarie! The way the EAU threads work (and you can refer to the first post for more details) is that you have to sign up at the beginning of the month. So you can't sign up anymore for August. But on Sept 1, kwailin777 will post the next month's thread in this forum and you'll have 7 days to sign-up for the next one!

    Miss M, thanks for directing TinaMarie in the right direction! I'll be making the new thread later tonight. ...as always I will let you know it's up, on the last post of this thread and the new thread will be linked in my signature.

    Trilov, I was thinking that when I try these face doodles...mine would look like mustaches too! LOL!

    Paradox, I'm so sorry to hear about your plight. I think Trina had a good idea on deciding your next step. Speaking to those that are in the thick of it can give you better insight. ...but maybe talk to peeps that are positive about their jobs...'cause even if they have a lot of good to say about it...they will most likely give ya the cons along with the pros. Plus, which one do you think would make you most happy to do regardless of the check?
    If I haven't said thank you for a kind comment, please know that they are very much appreciated.

    Hello Everyone!

    Miss has been worried about her envie she sent to me. It has arrived! Not sure exactly when it arrived, some days ago, I'm sure, but it is here! And it is so cute! Please show it off to the group, Miss! I apologize for you having to worry about its arrival. I've not been out to the mailbox in six days. My youngest son showed up at 6a.m. this morning to borrow my car so he could get to the oil rig to do a day's work. His car won't make it that far. He went out to the mailbox for me. The only good thing in six day's worth of mail was the cute black, red and white envie Miss sent! It really is so cute! Love the critters on it! Especially that cow! Again, I apologize for making you worry.
    Your envie from me will be late in coming. It goes out in today's mail. The boy put it in the box after he removed the other mail.
    My old body went into rebel mode early last week and hasn't let up yet. I feel like I've been beaten up by rabid bears and then run over with a Mac truck. Been sleeping more than I've been awake. I threw my back out again and that induced the fibro to kick into high gear. I have an appt with the pain specialist on the 6th of September. I tried to get in sooner but that wasn't happening! I'm hoping someone cancels their appt and I'll be able to get in sooner. If not, then I'll be asleep for another week or so!

    Thanks for the cool shares, Mel! Those envies are exceptional!
    Also appreciating all the talent shown in the envies from this group! You all outdo yourselves every month!

    Everyone in Texas please stay safe. It is heartbreaking seeing all the devastation caused by Harvey. Like Rose, I am so glad there are those looking after the pets that had to be left behind when the flooding came.

    I'm slowly packing to go to my oldest son's house for three weeks or so in a few days. Not sure how that drive is going to go but I have to make it so will do the best I can. Youngest son will take Toby dog home with him this evening when he brings my car back. Toby will stay with him while I'm at his brother's house and Ma will come to my house everyday to give the felines some loving and make sure they have food and water.
    And speaking of felines, that silly Mo cat just brought a fat little mouse inside and let it go under my desk. He's now trying to find it again. I do not need another mouse in the house! Dang fool cat anyway! He did the exact same thing yesterday!!! In Mo's opinion I am a terrible hunter and need all the help he can give!

    Happy Thursday Everybody!

    I'm a bit concerned that the envie I sent to Acalla has been swiped in the mail or misdelivered. I'll wait another couple of days to see if it arrives (mailed on 8/21/17). If it doesn't, I'll make and send another.

    I received my gorgeous envie from Wysteriavine today. Even though she's not officially on the swap, we agreed to trade envies. I mailed hers yesterday. The kitty on this envie (Wysteriavine, you must post a photo!) looks a lot like the only feral remaining in my back yard. His name is Creamsicle. I also cared for another orange feral several years ago at the end of his life. And the quote on the other side is so appropriate.

    Thank you.

    And Happy Birthday to Nanner!!!!!!!
