Bored At work

  • by

I discovered, to my delight, that the cubicle partitions, make a great backdrop for a puppet show.  So one day after I had been at work for few hours and needed some wake me up, stimulation, human contact…..  I did a little puppet show for my friend on the other side.  This got me what I wanted; some laughs, people adding their own creative elements on to it and a bit of a break from the repetition of our work. … Read More »Bored At work

It was really great getting to know all of them and… Read More »Christmas in Montana!

There was a restaurant about 20 minutes from the Tree cutting place.  We weren’t the only ones to stop! Notice, how there is NO snow.  This winter it has hardly snowed! Here it is, decorated and in its little nook!  Makes our place cozy and inviting, more than… Read More »Getting a Christmas Tree
