Sometimes Bugs Are More Fun Than People

July 20, 2013

Good morning.  Yup, it's still on the warm side here.  Today the temperature is supposed to drop down a few degrees, but with the heat index it will still feel like it's almost one hundred.  Tomorrow, it should be a few degrees cooler, and stay that way all week.  Now let's hope that the accompanying thunder storms won't be too bad.  It will be really nice for a while.

Yesterday, I got started on my work project around here very early, but then had to stop.  I spent most of the day babysitting some very sneaky and uncooperative dwarfs.  You know, some times I get so angry and disgusted with people.  This whole pest problem was caused by just a couple of tenants, and yet they have been the uncooperative ones throughout this whole process. 

Today, I will slack off a bit.  I have an appointment at noon at the nail salon, and I will do a load of laundry.  Then I will try to nap for a little while because tonight I'm back to work.  Today, I will check out the lights and windshield wipers in Baby Girl.  I don't want to get caught in the rain later,and have to figure out the wipers. 

This morning I'm watching the Weather Channel.  I really do think that I will find their website and leave a comment about the slutty way that the women are dressed.  They are all dressed alike so you know that the station is picking out their clothes.  Unfortunately, the women all look they were poured into their dresses, while the men are dressed in comfortable looking clothes.  I know, I'm being really picky, but as a crabby old lady I am entitled to my opinion. 

How about some bug photos?  I'm not sure if this first bug is a fly or a bee, but his colors are quite interesting.  The second photo is a tiny little butterfly (or moth), and the last is a dragonfly.  These shots were all taken recently in the Mrs' garden at work.  To be honest, it is  easier to photograph bugs than to babysit bad-mannered adults.  Let's hear if for the bugs!!!

Now I want to try brushing some of the kink out of my hair.  Ouch, ouch!  It's always like this when I wash it.  Is this maybe why so many guys shave all their hair off?  No, I'm not going to do that.  I'll just keep on brushing and ouching.
That's about all my rants for the day.  I want to make sure Pogo has a bit of lunch before we go out for my appointment.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.

My goodness, I thought your dwarfs were all good people and here they are giving you are hard time. Shame upon them ... I am sure it is not all of them, maybe just a few in the crowd.

Love your bugs. The first one is a bee ... I have those bee's here too. They are smaller then the average bee, but they make up for it in color. The Moth/slash butterfly( can't really tell from the angle of the picture is a great close-up and I always love the dragonflies ... they are just plain beautiful.

Do you use conditioner on your hair? Or a spray on conditioner ... that usually will make it easy to get the tangles out without the "Ouch!". This weather is making my hair kink up ... I only have a little bit of natural wave, but when it gets this humid my hair gets wild. You may be fighting the same issue. Our "cold front" went through last night so it was a little cooler this morning (like in the 80's), but we didn't get any rain which, believe it or not after all of the rain we had just weeks ago, we are badly in need of. So, today I am watering ... the good thing about hot is that I don't have to cut my grass so often. That is a job I could do without:)

Nice that you are treating yourself to a nail job ... we all deserve some pampering now and then. And, with all that you have been doing, you really deserve it. Hope the rest of your day is relaxing and you are feeling fresh when you go back to work tonight. You have fun today, Edna ...

It never ceases to amaze me that the people causing the problems are the last ones to admit it or try to help correct it. Bad dwarves! Shame on them!
Your bug photos are stunning, I always like a glimpse into the insect world. It seemed very appropriate since the dwarves are "bugging" you right now.

I think the green bee is interesting. I like bugs as long as they aren't in my house. Grasshoppers and ladybugs are my favorites and I like dragonflies. Bees are nice as long as they keep their distance. I don't want to be stung. :)

And as much as I love people, sometimes bugs just make more sense!

Hugs, Nani
