Frowning because the last thread in this series lasted 4 years and this will last longer.

Every problem can be solved with a trick but finding that trick itself needs another trick.

Frowning at general anxieties creeping behind me, but smiling at the fact that the last thread had been going since 2011. What history!

Frowning at missing our only chemistry lesson before the trip because of PSHE. Now we only have 4 left this year.

Chemistry is awesome!

LAUSD constantly putting me on hold and failing to answer any of my questions adequately. I'm either on hold, directed to an answering machine and a dead end, hung up on, left hanging as they do nothing with the information I've given them, or getting the wrong answers to my questions.

Great service guys! Now where's the "rate my performance" button so I can do some rating....

Drizzle... the most pointless type of rain

Do I look to be in a gaming mood?

Insomania. I found a coworker sleeping on his keyboard.

I hope I can get a decent job I can enjoy. As of now I don't think I can be a sub without a car. I'm doubting the possibility.

Jobs are even worse than college.

Frowning at the continued triple digit weather here - and in a drought to boot. Had to run errands yesterday and today and got really overheated today. Sgt said it was heat exhaustion causing chills, headache, and upset stomach. Just can't seem to cool off since then. Ugh

SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

Central Valley must be a oven at this point.
For some reason my computer crashed and it has not been able to get up.

Extended triple digits forecast with 107 for tomorrow (Friday)! It is so hot out that it feels like you stepped into a sauna when you walk outside. Ugh...

Wish I were this frog right about now!

Frowning because I buried my last blood uncle today (no blood aunts still alive either, only two aunts by marriage).

Life moves on... still need that moment for today.

Thanks Froggy, this has not been a very good year so far... oldest brother in Jan, hearing about my best man in May, and now my uncle. I am doing just fine mentally, just need to remember the better times. My uncle has been ill for over a year, his family are truly happy is suffering is over. Sometimes even the best memories in the world can not change a lingering death that family members prepare for. My cousin told me they were all ready for it... several times in the last year. He told me when it is his time, he hopes he is hit by a bus and it ends quickly. I know what he was saying.

My dad went very fast, Heart attack around noon, gone by 3 PM. My mom lingered for a few weeks, though not really in a lot of pain, just chemo and treatments and such, and basically on her last day, was the only time she spent in the hospital for very long and in pain. She had given strict orders to not revive her... to me, as kids, that is the hardest thing to swollow while we were by her bedside and saw her last breath leave her body knowing no one was going to try and do anything.

The service was nice for my uncle, pretty much an upbeat celebration of life. My wife kept trying to hand me a tissue that she had with her, but I was ok, little tear drops to the side of the eyes at times. The only point where I could not hold back was when my younger female cousin talked about how strong her dad was and how all her life she always saw him as a pillar of strength. The only time she ever saw her dad cry, was when his brother died (my dad)... yeah, they were close. My wife offered the tissue again, this time I took it.

Sorry, I had to do that, I turned that frown upside down. Good memories will usually help bad situations.

Randy, I too wish to send my condolences for your loss. Memories are funny things, and I don't necessarily mean funny, ha ha, but funny, odd. They can cause tears or smiles, depending on your choice. The grieving process is definitely for the survivors to help ease the memories, good or bad. I truly like the idea of "The Celebration of Life". Why not, we all wish to remembered for the good things we did in life, the good memories we have left with those who are in attendance. I have always told my family to remember the good times and to learn from the bad times, for it is from them that you learn not to let yourself repeat them.

But of course, Randy, with the year you have had, you do know all of this. For me, just since January, my family has remained untouched by death, but I have lost 4 long time friends or family of such. The young ones who have been called Home are the hardest to accept. But again it is a case of not understanding Our Lord's plans and our own determination to hold on to life for those we love until the bitter end.

Know your friends, family and loved ones share your sorrow, but they will also help you get through your memories, good and bad of a situation. For they also have their memories, some to share and some to keep close to their hearts. Keep a smiling heart, Randy.

Frowning at my tendency to procrastinate this morning. As much as I like relaxing, things need to be done around here!

Insomnia the night before a con. Now I actually need to drink coffee.
