Still Waiting

Dell pushed out the ship date for my new computer another week...don't know if they are waiting on a part or have cut their capacity back but its frustrating not having access to the internet at home.
Here is a fun shot of my hair...straight. It has never been straight before, but my hairdresser has been wanting to do this for a while and since we were headed out to see Willie Nelson Saturday night I let her play. It took her about 30 minutes, I know I will never have the patience or skill to do it myself. This was taken while Go Postal and I were waiting for our Pizza at "Sticks and Stones" prior to the concert. Willie was fun, a very diverse crowd I must say.
Next I have to complete our 80's look for little sister's big 40th bash this weekend. Go Postal will sport the Sonnny Crocket look from Miami Vice and I am going to attempt to pull off a mini skirt and banana clip. We will take pictures of this one for sure.

What a Week

Go Postal and I (and the other 22 folks from the ski club) had one of our best ski trips EVER! Steamboat is known for their legendary powder and on Wednesday we got to experience about 14" of it at the summit. Mrs Goodneedle and I laughed that it was like high loft polyester batting! I will post more pictures later (the new home computer has been ordered and Dell should be shipping it later this week). We all returned safe and with big smiles on our faces.

I was even treated to a sleigh ride and steak dinner in a heated teepee for Valentines Day the night before we left.

Yesterday I got to see the progress on Go Postal's new car barn. The footings and block were completed while we were away. Foreman Banjo is back on the job now...inspecting the work and ridding the site of any unwanted rodents.

Computer Woes

I will have to be quiet for a little while. My computer at home is on its last legs. I have bought an external hard drive and think I have time to copy over all my pictures/music/tax returns before I give up on it all together. I will have to wait until I return from Steamboat to get a new one up and running. In the mean time I will have to limit my blogging (since the work computer is my only access). I now have to decide if I get another desktop (the best value) or go for the portability of a laptop.

We had a great Bee retreat. I have the Relay for Life quilt all ready to go and got a lot done on other projects too. I didn't even take one picture all weekend so I will follow up with some later.

Now its time to get some major projects wrapped up at work, pick up the freshly tuned skis, and get a pedicure (you don't want to tempt are more likely to get hurt if you don't shave your legs and have nasty feet). I will try to borrow someone's laptop on the trip and post a few shots.
