Hello dear. Yes, I am talking to you. I mean can a post get any more intimate than this? It is being written with you in mind.
First of all, knowing your deep fascination, respect and abiding love for all things HalfAsstic Household, I have news of some great import for you.
Remember John, Mr. HalfAsstic? Yeah, well there’s not much reason for you to remember him too much since he’s HARDLY EVER HERE.
Oops. Was I being loud again? Dammit. My redneck was sneaking out.
Aaaaanyway, John has been working in another county for a good long while and the 45 minute drive to and from work, not to mention the cost of gasoline, has driven us bats for the entire time. The Pearland store is no longer his baby! He got transferred to Friendswood! Much closer and easy to get to! Plus, he’s worked there before and it’s an “easy” store.
Now, didn’t I just absolutely make your day with that bit of news?
I went with him to the old store yesterday on his day off to pick up his junk valuables.
Here he is upstairs gathering his things. No, really. He’s in there.
Here again, only this time he’s more identifiable as human. (And he almost always is.)
There’s my cutie!
BIIIIIG store. This is just a small slice out of the center from upstairs.
And just to make you jealous… Spring in south Texas.
OK, actually it’s the parking lot in spring in south Texas, but you can still see all the green way back there.
Next, all about Henrietta’s delusions. The Update.

Well, Friendswood certainly sounds more “friendly”. Hope this transfer makes life better for the two of you. At least you’ll be saving gas money to spend on something more fun…maybe a dinner date in that new dress?
I see a Kroger calendar behind John. Is that a Kroger store? All those huge stores look alike to me. There’s no Krogers anywhere near me, but there’s a Kroger in my hometown in Illinois that I really like.

Way to go John!!!!!! Les gas, less wear and tear on the car, AND less wear and tear on John’s body and your marriage. And, of course, the shorter commute means he gets to spend more time with his mother. Looks like everybody wins.

The “Les” above is not an attempt at French, just a senile old man’s typo trying to spell “less”. Sorry.

A big step in the right direction. How did you guys finally get some luck going your way? I can’t wait to hear about H. And, does John ever bring you or H balloons? You know, when they get out dated like St. Patrick’s Day balloons?

That is by far the most beautiful parking lot I have ever seen-esp. since there is nary a hint of green here yet!
and hey, this is good news; I am so happy.

Green grass and leaves? How come you get both and we get neither?
Good news about the transfer!

You can’t hide redneck, it always tends to sneak back out.
Congrats to John. It’s definitely nice to work closer to home and not lose so much of the day to the commute.

Thank goodness for his being closer home. It’s gotta be easier on his health as well as your nerves.
