The Critters Are Beginning To Annoy Me!

January 19, 2012

This morning, the sun is trying very hard to keep shining.  And, it's cold!  It's 16 degrees, and the weatherman says it will hit 34 degrees later today.  I must say, this is the craziest winter weather ever.  But, I'm not complaining because I'm enjoying all those 36 - 50 degree days.

We were supposed to hook up my new phones yesterday, but somehow we forgot.  Today this will have to be the number one chore for Eddie to do when he gets here.  I tried to do it last night, but cannot get at the little box where the phone has to be plugged in.  Maybe Eddie can move that little box into my living room.

I did find out what made my old phone stop working.  One of those critters that had gotten into my house had chewed the little phone line.  I saved it to show Eddie today.  I've been very good to those critters.  I feed them (in another part of my yard, of course) all through the winter so they won't starve or freeze.  So I'm not happy when they come in and chew my phone line.

I have to share something that a friend sent to me quite a while ago.  I'm not sure where she found it, but I think it's adorable.  It's a cell phone made especially for us seniors.  I doubt our children or their children would even know how to work it!

As promised, I do have a freebie for you today.  It's a collection of CU nature papers made with my own photos.  Here is Nature Trails Set 01.   I hope you can use them.

And here is your download link:

Now it's time for me get dressed and get started on a few chores.  Like laundry, a tad bit of vacuuming, maybe hang some curtains, etc.  First, I need to give Tootsie her morning meds.  Already she has found a hiding spot.  Gosh, I love that kid!  Till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Is that a real phone or a gag? What a hoot! You come up with the most unique things! Have a great day today.

That phone is awesome! My dad has a great phone for him as well. No internet, no bells and whistles, and BIG numbers for him to see easier. I believe he got it from AARP. But the cell company's name is Consumer Cellular. He pays $25.00 a month.

Hey, I remember rotary phones and I'm not even old enough for AARP yet! (4-1/2 more years and the discounts start!) ;)

I can't imagine why the critters are chewing your wires when you feed them. Are they making comments about the quality of the food?? What ingrates!

We have sn** on the ground now. I'm sad. But the temps are supposed to rise to melting by the weekend.

You and Tootsie stay warm!
Hugs, Nani

Thank You for the Beautiful Overlays, You do take some Lovely Photographs!
Our wires sometimes get chewed. Serves us right for keeping pet rats :)
