Good morning. Gosh, just when we thought Sandy was gone, the heavens roared and the rains came down again. Pogo and I missed being caught in it by about five minutes. I guess we'll have these lingering downpours every now and then until Sandy has faded completely away.
I hope none of you has been hit by the devastation that I am seeing on my TV. One town got covered in six feet of water in just forty five minutes. Can you imagine? Forty five minutes? So many folks have died, and ever so many have lost their homes and all their belongings.
My heart breaks for those folks who bore the brunt of this horrific storm. I cannot imagine what's involved in cleaning up after all the damage, especially in places like New York City and New Jersey. It's mind boggling, and makes me appreciate everyone and everything I have that much more.
Yesterday I tried (the magic word here is "tried") to take some photos of Pogo in his Penguin suit. I wanted to make sure it would fit for his trick or treating later today. Well, let me tell you this was not such an easy task!
Pogo just was not thrilled about the idea of walking around in a penguin outfit. Actually, he didn't even want to sit in it long enough for a photo. He squirmed and turned around, laid down and rolled over, anything he could to make life difficult.
Finally, he stopped squirming and gave me his best impression of a camel. You just gotta love this kid.
Pogo has already hidden the head to the costume in hopes of not having to wear it later. He is one smart little cookie. Gosh, I dread the thought of how he will behave when I stuff him into a carrier to take him on a plane. I'll have to start practicing using the carrier a month early. This kid surely keeps me busy!
Tonight will be a big night for Pogo. He's never gone on a long broom ride, and tonight's the night we meet up with some old friends and fly around the world. It will good to see some of these old crones again. Here's a layout I made showing Pogo and me as we head out on our trip.
Now I really must get busy here and get a few things done. You know, the dishes, vacuuming, maybe some dusting, etc. It's not my favorite chore, but someone has to do it. Please stay safe wherever you are. Till tomorrow, Y'all don't eat too much candy, and have a Happy Halloween.
Hugs, Edna B.
