Good morning. I'm still at work, and it's dark and very foggy outside. When I drove to work last night, the fog was pretty thick in spots, but it has been super thick all through the night. Hopefully it will be cleared up a bit before I have to drive home in it.
I want to thank you for your very good advice in the comments yesterday. I never gave a thought to the salt content in the deli meat. I think today I will cook up more hamburg and rice for Pogo. Then it's back to the doggie food for a while. Hopefully, he won't go on strike for too long. It's very difficult to eat my own food when he looks at me like he's starving. Breaks my heart! (It might be a good way for me to diet, though!)
Yesterday, I went on E-bay and ordered an adorable soft sided doggie house/bed for Pogo. It was only around $21 with free shipping. If he likes it, I'll order another one to leave in Joe's room for when I work nights. Here's a picture that I copied from the web.
This looks like it will be quite comfortable. I ordered the large size so that there will be room enough inside for Pogo's blanket and maybe a toy. Something like this might also be good for doggies that do not like thunder and lightning. The closeness of the inside space gives a sense of safety for the doggie. I'm sure kitties would love this too.
I'm still waiting for Blogger to fix the problem of not being able to upload photos to the blog post. I have to use Firefox in order to post with photos. Ah well, I guess if everything ran smoothly, there'd be nothing to complain about. lol.
Last night I worked on another freebie to be posted here soon. Later tonight, I hope to chat with Su so that we can discuss what we will be doing for February. Speaking of February, I just looked at the calendar. Gosh! Only seven more weeks and Pogo and I will be on a plane heading for Florida. Oh, that does sound good!
Did I mention how our trip on Friday turned out? No? Well......talk about fiascos!!! Pogo and I got in the car and drove off, stopping at the bank and then the gas station to fill the gas tank. Then I pulled over to the side of the parking area and got out my "smart phone with the GPS". I turned on the GPS and it said "You have no service." Excuse me? This think was working just fine the night before. Then I tried to make a call and got the same message.
I drove forward a few feet, and tried again. I got the same results. After poking several buttons on the phone, I was able to make a call to Eddie. Maybe he could talk me through this predicament. As it was, he could not. So then I called my sister in law, Edie, to get directions. Guess what? No one is answering her phone. I left a voice message, and then Pogo and I turned around and went home.
So much for our day out. Maybe we'll try again later this week. We'll see. The Mrs is stirring so I must be getting back to work here. Pretty soon it will be time to go home. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
