Frumps And Frogs

October 25, 2010
*
It's gray and damp outside today. I think (I know) I'm coming down with a nasty cold. Too little sleep and eating on the run can do that. Today I will have to start taking in lots of vitamin C and orange juice.

Yesterday was a busy day, making arrangements and picking out outfits for me and my brother. Everything I tried on made me look like a short frump in the mirror. Gosh, I AM a short frump, but I'm still expecting to see some adorable sleek lady when I look in the mirror. Go figure! Is everybody else like that? I should know by now that a frog only looks like a prince to his princess.

I have been rambling lately, going from one subject to another before finishing with the first one. Hopefully, this will clear up in a few days. I have been remembering lots of things from the past. I remember how, when we were little kids, my brother would pick a fight with a bigger boy, and hide behind me, taunting the other boy with "Ha ha, go ahead and hit me. My big sister will beat you up." Then, just a few years later it was "Hurt my sister, Man, and you're dog meat!!" Don't you just love it?

Yesterday, Janet and I took a small break for some lunch at Wendy's. Afterward, we fed a bit of food to the seagulls and crows. When the food was gone, we noticed this one crow who had found himself quite a treasure and had taken it up to the power wires to sit and enjoy it. Except -- it takes a while to figure out how to hold on to the treasure, and be able to eat it too. Here are some of the photos I took.

Back to my schedule here, today I have to finish getting the information ready for the newspapers, and put together a picture board. Unless things change, the wake will be Wednesday night 5-8 pm, and Thursday morning we will go to Bourne (Veterans' Cemetery) and have a short service there. For those who did not know, my brother went into the Army when he was sixteen years old, and was sent to Korea for two years.

I need to give Tootsie her morning meds now, and get busy here. There is so much to do, and I have so many wonderful folks to thank for all the prayers and thoughts that are being sent. I want to thank all of you. It is so comforting to know that you care. Y'all have a wonderful day now.

Hugs, Edna B.

p.s. I almost forgot - today Su and I are posting Part 2 of "Miss Edie." Here is your link for my "Part 2", and don't forget to visit Su's blog for her "Part 2."

Hello Miss Edna,
I am Very Sorry to Hear about Your Dear Brother, My Thoughts are With You.

My Mother's Garden is full of every sort of bird feeder and she is out there several times a day re-filling them or standing in the kitchen watching the view.
So I sent Her Your Pictures, sure to bring a smile!
My Best Wishes,
Chris
