Good morning. It's a lovely day even though our temps have dropped about twenty degrees. Today will stay in the mid 50's F, but with no rain. Tomorrow will warm up a bit more.
I'm watching the weather channel, and it is showing all the heavy rain in the eastern half of Texas. Folks, wouldn't this be a good time for this state (and others in this section of the country) to start thinking about putting in water pipelines? The overload of the heavy rains could be piped to the arid sections of the states. Yup, it's expensive, but so isn't loss of life, both human and wildlife.
Yesterday was such a gorgeous day. Pogo and I went out to do some errands, and on the way home we treated ourselves to lunch at Burger King. All the while we were out, the back car window was open and Pogo was loving the warm breeze in his face. It is so easy to please this little fellow. I just wish it was this easy to get him to eat his doggie food. Ah well, I'll just keep trying.
In the afternoon, I was able to open the window near my lounge chair, and enjoy the fresh air while working on the blue afghan. There's only about eight or nine more rows to go and it will be finished. DIL Janet says we can go visit the JoAnn's super store tomorrow afternoon to look for more yarn. I have a 20% off coupon so this could be a really fun shopping trip.
On my way to work this past Saturday evening, I had to stop to let this turkey cross the road. I took advantage of being stopped and shot a few photos.
I have a couple of really cute photos from the web to share with you. This first one is just so darn cute. Most every one in this state is a Red Sox fan, even the squirrels.
This next image had me giggling for quite some time. It so reminds me of my little fellow. He's only as big as a tea pot, but he'll stand up to the biggest dogs.
Now that Spring is here with warmer temps, the tick population is growing and becoming quite a problem. You need to check yourself and your pets carefully when coming in from outdoors. These pesky little critters are so easy to go unnoticed until they have created a problem. This tick warning notice was posted on the web.
Okay, I feel good. I've had my laugh for today. Now I think I'll chase a few dust bunnies around the house and maybe even trap a few with the vacuum. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
