Obnoxious Orange

 Fall is not only the season for Halloween Orange...but for that Obnoxious Orange.  You know what I mean...that horrible, bright orange that hunters wear.  So fluorescent it almost blinds you.  Everywhere you go this time of year you see trucks, big huntin' trucks riding around with their guns mounted in the rear window.  What are they wearing?  That huntin' orange...jackets and caps.  They ride around town with their deer (Bambi) in the bed of their trucks...or even worse tied to the hood of their truck so no one can miss it.  They have the proudest (silliest) looks on their faces as they show off their trophies.

 I asked my husband if I could borrow his truck.  Would he help me lift my sewing table and machine in the back?  I would drape a quilt over the tailgate and make a flag out of a table runner.  I would dress in my favorite quilt color...purple.  What fun to drive around town with my trophies on display for all to see.

Gary had an interview Monday at work.  He was applying for a job.  It's the position he has been working for the last 2 months, but with benefits and a permanent assignment so he wouldn't have to float around to other units.  Jaycee left him this cute note before she went to school.  She spent the weekend helping him study for the interview by asking him questions about policies and procedures from his notes.  He was so prepared.  Of course they asked him different questions than what he studied.  But he awesome in the interview...and HE GOT THE JOB!  Benefits!  Woo-Hoo!  We are so excited for him!

And as far as orange goes, try living in Tennessee where you see the bright orange of the Tennessee Vols everywhere all year round!
