Go Get Em, Tiger!

September 15, 2012

Good morning.  It's 8 a.m. and it's quite gray outside.  I do believe we are expecting some rain today.  The temperature is about 68 F, and should get up into the mid 70's later on.  Not too shabby! 

It's good news time.  Pogo is starting to learn to play with toys.  I bought him a little orange dog with a squeaker in it, and he actually plays with it.  So far, he can't make it squeak, but if you squeak it for him, he will attack it and toss it in the air.  It is so much fun to watch him at play.

I took these photos to show just how funny he can be.  He's so ferocious looking.   If he had any teeth, the little toy dog would be in shreds by now.  I just love this first photo that shows Pogo leaping towards the little dog.

I'm watching the weather channel, and it's very interesting.  Today Minneapolis will be in the 80's, and then drop to the low 60's by tomorrow and Monday.  The weatherman says they might even look for some snowflakes.  Is he kidding?  It's too darn early for snow!!!

The other day, the weatherman was saying that we might be expecting another winter like last year.  I can handle the winter when it is not too severe as long as it doesn't mean another drought year.

 Again, I have to get back on my bandbox and wonder why the politicians haven't come up with the idea for a water pipeline.  We could have re-directed all those flood waters to the arid parts of the country.  Homes and lives, and crops and livestock would have been saved.  People would have been put back to work, and the economy would have gotten a much needed shot in the arm. 

I think I should go make another cup of coffee and maybe do a little housework.  Tonight it's back to work.  Sighhhhh.  I heard a new word the other day.  "Retire"  I'm going to have to look this up.  lol.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Love the pics from Pogo. Oh yes, in the first one you really can see he his without fear to attack that strange thing LOL.
Oh, I have to tell you this, although I will write about it on my blog tomorrow too).
Yesterday Jan had eveningshift, and at a too early time I heard him coming home. I was all curious why, but he told me he was with a patient for a few minutes, came out of the front door again and his bike was stolen! And it was locked and in front of the door, so everybody could guess it was not an abandoned one! What miserable types are that, who do such things. So he had to walk all the way to the central post of home care in that area to deliver his list and keys and tell he couldn;t finish his round, because of what happened and then came walking home.
Now he needs to tlook for another bike tomorrow, I hope he will find a good second hand that will not be all too expensive. He really needs that bike, otherwise there is no work and he already has new shifts, starting Tuesday morning!Damn, all was going rather well with his work and now this again! No use in going to the police, first the bike wasn;t insured, and even then little chance something happens, you just loose a lot of time at the police station.
Dikkie seems to feel a tiny little bit better, let's hope it will go the way up again with him.
In short this is our weekend LOL.
You have a great day, playing with Pogo once in a while!
