You may have noticed that my posts are less frequent than has been my habit. I'm on my summer schedule. You're welcome. I don't like to brag, but I got my annual evaluation at the store yesterday and I am fabulous according to the boss. Plus, I got a sweet 6% raise, which means that I can call the guy and tell him to include the leather package with the Mercedes. All kidding aside, getting a 6% raise these days is nothing to sneeze at. Many folks are suffering a 100% cut in their pay, so I am very fortunate. Here's a little video of Miss Riley. She is becoming mobile. You will notice that at one point in her trek, she turns at looks at the television. The British Open golf tournament was wrapping up and she had a bet down on it. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Is that you in the soundtrack to the fabulous vid or the TV voice? Noah and the other Sneedlets? Mrs. Sneed?

Very cool.

You are lucky and also you are damn good! Glad you got a raise. Bravo!!

Merle Sneed said...

Reya, the voice on the vid is Tom Watson talking about his near win in the golf match.

You hear Mrs. Sneed explaining to the Sneedlets that Riley crawled from here to there. That is Noah who says, "Cool".

The remaining noise is the general mayhem that accompanies any Sneed gathering.

Congratulations on your raise! They know a good employee obviously. I'll bet not everyone got 6%.

Miss Riley is going places for sure. Before you know it, she will be on two legs just like the rest of us. But for now, she gets to where she wants to go with a lot of determination. Those elbows must have callouses on them!

I love that she got applause for her effort! The whole thing made me smile.

Too cute, especially how she used the remote to stop the filming action ; )

Good 4 U on the increase. Anything helps ; )

Megan said...

You deserve it. The raise, I mean.

But you should not applaud Miss R for picking up the remote! :)

Congrats! Six percent is huge!

(By comparison, I got a five percent pay CUT this year!)
