The roses are doing so well this year.

Snugly cat is snugly.
Life closes a door,
smash the window in. Tell life
I’ll come and go as I want.
Tell life I have more bricks where
that came from, I’m not afraid
of things breaking, what I am saying
is that I am used to breaking and
you don’t scare me, I refuse
to sit in this house, waiting
for a door to open. Like a cat
I’ll shred the sofa and climb the
walls. I’ll ruin this house
and sleep on the balcony
under the stars.
it's hard to focus on metrics reporting when you feel like a war is about to break out.
More vintage bug gloves! Mesh net with lace spiderweb gauntlets, and cute puffy little spiders. I wish there was more online about these, this image is from Pinterest from an expired eBay listing. I'm willing to bet they're 1940s if they're vintage, or made in Russia more recently if they're not. I wonder if there's a pattern somewhere for them. #crochet #vintage
This is one way to avoid spending too much time on the computer today.

We bought a used car a few weeks ago. I brought the owners manuals in to review, and they've since vanished. I mean, the house is a mess, but these are good size books, not pamphlets that could easily hide in a pile of papers or something.
And yeah, I know about how strong pattern recognition is in humans. I'm certain to be filtering out things that don't fit, like being laid off in 2001 (but I got another job within 2 weeks).
I have this odd pattern in my life:
1978: Join Navy, almost die of pneumonia.
1988: Get married, lose job.
1998: Quit one job, get far better job at bank with 57% raise.
2008: Get dream job with different department, nice raise.
See a pattern? Most of the biggest things in my life happen 10 years apart. Getting cancer only exception, 1995.
I'm not really superstitious, but I sometimes wonder about 2018.
