Good morning. Well, it's about 70 degrees F, so that's a pretty nice way to start the day. I did try to sleep as late as possible this morning, but Mr. Pogo would only let me have until around 8:30 and then he carried on until I got up. As soon as I opened the door to the laundry room, he rushed out barking and growling for Joe. It was bologna treat time for Pogo!!
Thursday night through Friday was a long shift. However, the Mrs' son came by at 7 a.m. so that I could run home and pick up Pogo and bring him back with me. I had already packed food for Pogo in my workbag the night before. The worst part of the whole shift was having no access to the internet.
It's amazing how uninteresting the laptop becomes when there is no internet. You cannot read your blog or anyone else's blog. There's no point in looking at email because none came in while the internet was out, and most of it won't open anyway without Wi-Fi. Sounds like we are a technology addicted population.
There's been articles in the news these past couple of days about a pit bull named "Puppy Doe". I'm not going to rant about the horrific abuse this dog had to tolerate because I am enraged at the sicko who tortured this poor fur baby. The violence and wounds were so severe that Puppy Doe had to be put to sleep. I'm just hoping that that this horribly vicious person is severely punished.
My heart cries for Puppy Doe and all the other abused animals. What is wrong with people anyway? When will be all start watching over not just our own pets but other animals as well? Folks if you see or know of any animal abuse, please report it to the authorities. People don't just wake up one morning and decide to torture an animal. There are signs. Please see them and report them.
How about a photo? Have you ever taken a close look at a butterfly bush after the blooms have passed by? I never really thought about it until I was taking a few photos in my yard a few days ago. I was looking to see what is still blooming when I noticed how strange the "gone by" blossoms on the bush really looked.
I also got some nice shots of a spider web filled with rain drops that was tucked into one of the rose bushes. I thought it was quite interesting.
Last, here's a photo that I like to call "Hope". After a dreary cold and wet day, this little pink bud shows that there is still hope for another beautiful day.
It's time now for me to get dressed and do a few things around here. Tonight it's back to work again. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day. Give your fur babies an extra hug.
Hugs, Edna B.
