I'm Back On My Soapbox!

April 15, 2012

It's a gorgeous sunny morning, and because it's Sunday, you get an extra day to file your taxes.  I'm so glad that mine are done.  I can breathe now for another year!

Daybreak this morning was quite pretty.  However, the sky changes so quickly!  By the time I put the memory card into my laptop to look at the pictures, the sky had already changed.  Here's what it looked like a little after 6 this morning.

A few evenings ago on my way to work, the cloudy sky was looking a bit weird so I stopped to take a couple of photos.  (Have you noticed that I am fascinated with the sky?)

Don't these clouds look a bit menacing?  I wonder if this  is what they look like when a nasty storm is brewing.  Yesterday, more than 120 tornadoes went through the mid central part of the country.  What in the world is happening?  I don't ever remember this type of tornado activity.  With all the modern technology, one would think that scientists could figure out a way to break up a tornado before it heads for land.

Have you heard the latest "stamp out hunger in our country" ads?  They say "No child should go hungry."  I definitely agree with that statement.  What annoys me is their next sentence.  "We can do it.  We can stamp out hunger in our country by 2015."  People, that's THREE YEARS!  What's wrong with doing it THIS YEAR?  Why do our children have to wait three years?  Can't congress dump the pork in bills and feed our kids instead?  You know, we always have the money to feed the rest of the world but there is never enough money left over to feed ourselves.  Something's wrong with this picture!

Okay, that's enough of my soapbox rants.  Now it's time to get Tootsie her morning meds and do another load of wash.  I ran out of time yesterday and did not finish washing all the scatter rugs.  This kid keeps me pretty busy!  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You just made me realize that instead of being upset with Roger (the new owner) arriving too early on a Sunday, I should be using this impetus to get my butt outside and photograph things in the morning light.

Beautiful sky pictures.!
And yeah, you're right. Our government too gives a lot of support money to the world, which is a good thing too, but some of that money isn't used well, so it better could be used in our own country. I suppose we are thinking much too simple( in the eys of the politicians LOL).
Have to post and then do also some laundry stuff!
Have a great day
