Achievements and accomplishments.

Sam has this week off work, and I’m pleased to report that the two of us are making magnificent progress on a variety of exciting projects. Mine mostly have been limited to folding a lot of socks and sleeping late. Sam, on the other hand, bought a five-gallon watering can from Lowe’s so our pansies wouldn’t die, installed ten nice stepping stones in the back yard and took me to lunch at Saltgrass Steak House in Rockwall. From this I suppose a casual observer can assume that Sam and I lead an exceptionally uncomplicated life, which apparently is due to the fact that we are exceptionally uncomplicated people. (Also unmotivated.)

Big plans for the rest of the week include: 1) lunch at Pei Wei because Sam has a gift card; 2) installing new towel rings in the master bath; 3) a trip to the Choctaw Casino in Oklahoma; 4) buying stamps; and 5) I want to make a homemade pizza.

In case you didn’t see this story in the news, a rare miniature cow that resembles a panda bear was born this week on a farm in northern Colorado. This “panda cow” is thought to be one of only about 24 in the world. They’re bred solely as pets and can sell for as much as $30,000. The male calf named Ben is pictured below with his mother, a purebred black Angus, and Chris Jessen, her live-in boyfriend.
Incidentally, if anybody wants to give me $10 to gamble for them at the casino this week, please send an email no later than noon Wednesday and attach a check payable to “Marcy.” I always win big at the penny slots. Thank you for reading this.
