Good morning. It's sunny and warm and heading for the 80's here in my little part of the world. Remember yesterday's daffodil? Well it popped open after dark last night. This morning I went out to get a new photo to share.
While we are enjoying this beautiful weather, the folks in Oregon are coping with new snowfall that is creating all sorts of havoc. There is also a lot of flooding taking place in the central and southern parts of the country. I'm still waiting for some genius to figure out how to pipe all the extra water to drier parts of the country.
My grandson Kevin is now a freshman in high school, and this week he tried out for the school baseball team. Yesterday he got the good news - he made the team. Congratulations Kevin!!
The news on TV is very distressing. FEMA continues to withhold aid to folks around the country who have lost their homes and more due to hurricanes and tornadoes. What is wrong with this picture? Why do we have billions of dollars to give away all around the world, BUT NOT TO OUR OWN PEOPLE? Just where does Congress think this money comes from anyway? It comes from us, and should go back to us first!!
Here's an update with my battle with the cable company. Yesterday morning one of the two new converter boxes was not working. In the process of trying to get it working, the cable company once again managed to mess up my other TV's.
Eddie and I took both of the new boxes back to the cable company and got two new ones. Again, only one box worked. After being on the phone for more than an hour, Eddie was finally able to get the tech person on the phone to correct the problem. I don't know about you, but this is not acceptable service for the money I pay to bring cable into my house. At the moment, both new boxes are working.
Before I left work this past Monday morning, I took a photo of the tall trees across the street, and then a closeup showing all the birds perched in the tree tops. They sit up there for a couple of hours calling out to their friends and families (I think).
I also got a photo (it's more like a silhouette) of one little bird sitting in the Mrs' beauty bush and just singing his little heart out.
Now it's time to see what's in the fridge for lunch. After that, Tootsie and I want to walk around the yard for a while before the housework starts calling me again. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
