whatever

Happy Friday to all the wonderful citizens in the City of Claycord.

This is a post with no subject, you can talk about whatever you want. If breaking news happens (such as an earthquake), or you hear about something newsworthy, feel free to post it here.

Today is my birthday. I am 44 years old today.

That is all.

@ Champagne Kitty

Well Happy Birthday missy. Hope it is the best one EVER.

203 Silva August 28, 2014 at 2:27 PM

I hope you are feeling better ChampagneKitty and you have a jolly good and happy birthday!

204 Happy One August 28, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Happy Birthday, Champagne Kitty! I hope you do something fun to celebrate.

205 blossom August 28, 2014 at 2:43 PM

Happy birthday to our Garden Girl ! Nicole Hackett is enjoying 40 Years. YEAH

206 Tom August 28, 2014 at 2:53 PM

Happy Birthday Champagne Kitty! Have fun and enjoy your day!!

207 Shasta Daisy August 28, 2014 at 2:56 PM

Birthday blessings to you, Champagne Kitty.
Hope your day was filled with everything that makes you happy.

Shasta Daisy, thanks for the parking tip, jury duty style. I have a habit of being “deselected” myself.

So I finally found a way out of jury duty, while still being respectful to the court. ( Not lying). If you “reschedule”, they let your choose the start date, within a certain time frame.

I choose FRIDAY, knowing the chances of a jury trial starting on Friday are slim to none.

It’s worked twice now, including as recently as Aug. 15.

If you serve Shasta Daisy, you’d probably be a good juror.

209 Tom August 28, 2014 at 3:02 PM

Happy Birthday to Garden Girl too! My wife and daughter really enjoy her column……

210 Marissa August 28, 2014 at 3:37 PM

Happy Birthday, Champagne Kitty and Nicole! :-)

211 Shasta Daisy August 28, 2014 at 3:52 PM

Garden Girl…Happy BIrthday!
May your life be full of friends and fun times.

Friends are flowers that never fade.

212 Shasta Daisy August 28, 2014 at 3:55 PM

FYI…Dismissed from jury duty until October.

But the trip to Martinez was not wasted.
Coffee with a friend.

And, tonite…off to a concert at Broadway Plaza.
Perfect nite!

@ J.

Hahaha… That’s funny. That’s exactly how I pictured Atticus to look like.

215 Silva August 28, 2014 at 4:55 PM

Some people I’ve talked to actually like jury duty. I don’t know, I’ve not yet done it.

I took a shower in a bucket today. A really large bucket. There’s a lot of water in it. Wow!

216 Enfield303 August 28, 2014 at 5:36 PM

Of the three times I’ve been called to jury duty, I’ve never made it all the way to trial. Sounds fascinating though.

217 Kad August 28, 2014 at 5:42 PM

Happy Birthday to Champagne Kitty. Hope you are feeling well enough to enjoy it.

218 Atticus Thraxx August 28, 2014 at 5:47 PM

Sweet Purple Jesus! Dude is jacked. His bicep is damn near as big as my thigh Enfield! I don’t cut an imposing figure. And when I bruise badly I frown. Thanks J.
Happy Birthday Kitty. 44? Just a kid! ;)
Silva it was Conan. These last two are Aldrin and Grohl.
Four day weekend and no matter what, no one can take away this LAST! w00t!

Happy Birthday, Nicole/Garden Girl!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! I haven’t done anything special to celebrate. I wanted to go out and have a good meal in one of my favorite spots, but that hasn’t happened. I still have time, but I don’t think I’m going anywhere today. I appreciate all the wishes, though. It is nice to just have it acknowledged.

220 Marissa August 28, 2014 at 5:54 PM

Nicole, I’ve been by your shop in Clayton and was very surprised at the selection of flora you have available. I really hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

221 Atticus Thraxx August 28, 2014 at 7:40 PM

Mid-air collision or homicide? :http://i.imgur.com/hHmwOtS.jpg

222 Marianne August 28, 2014 at 8:23 PM

Definite homicide, but a beautiful picture nonetheless, Atticus.

223 Enfield303 August 28, 2014 at 8:33 PM

Atticus

I ‘m thinking more like manslaughter (or bee slaughter ) . Probably going for the same flower

224 anon August 28, 2014 at 9:08 PM

It looks like a humdinger!

225 Antler August 29, 2014 at 2:50 AM

Blossom at #205…. Hi, I’m late dropping by Whatever today, but please do wish Nicole a most Happy Day after Birthday.

I did make contact with ChampagneKitty.

Hope you are doing well and being your dynamic, friendly self, Blossom!

“Defy our expectations in Diablo Valley”. Advertising headline from this months AAA magazine. Two page sppread fillled with breathless ad copy. “Delectable farmers markets, edgy craft brewers and more music than any other valley”. That Concord place really sounds great!

227 Jojo Potato August 29, 2014 at 7:54 AM

Whoops, it should be “Defy your expectations…”

228 Antler August 29, 2014 at 10:50 AM

Oh, just LOOK at that cute Henesy dog just posted by Animal Services as being up for adoption!

229 Antler August 29, 2014 at 10:59 AM

Atticus, super pic! I’m going for a title something like “Clean Kill”.

I read recently that hummingbirds also eat a great many mosquitoes….very much an omnivorous bird. As I write this, I heard the baby squeekies from a hummingbird nest in the magnolia tree just outside the slider and near the feeder, which the parents defend with a vengeance against other hummers and even against big orioles.

230 Antler August 29, 2014 at 11:02 AM

Shasta at #212 …… Yea! Are you buying Halloween candy early?

231 Kirkwood August 29, 2014 at 2:18 PM

Panhandler alert! The Gypsies are coming! The Gypsies are coming!
Friday, 2 pm, a pregnant woman, 2 small kids, and a man about 30 opposite the doors to Safeway. Man was waving to shoppers exiting the store. I watched from a short distance and was apparently noticed. When I returned from the car with my camera,they had moved out to the lot entrance.

232 Kad August 29, 2014 at 3:14 PM

233 Killjoy August 29, 2014 at 5:04 PM

Kirkwood, which Safeway? There are so many in the area.

I don’t mind being last.
