Good morning. Oh my, just two days left in July. Summer is fleeting by and I haven't really done much of anything. Outside of the house, I mean. I had so wanted to get out more, but it wasn't to be. Ah well, maybe we'll get out more as the temps wind down and Fall sets in.
Have any of you been watching the news? About the two women walking on the train trestle? I wonder, couldn't they have thought of an easier way to get attention? Do they realize they could have caused an accident, killing everyone on that train? Or worse?
Some folks' stupidity just leaves me wondering if mankind is going in the right direction. I do hope that both women end up in jail for a while for this stupid stunt. Enough said!
Well, I called my friend from work to tell her that I was done with work, only to find that this was not a very good time to be leaving. Her brother just passed away on Sunday. Aside from her hubby and daughter, her brother was all the family she had left.
So, for my friend, I may wait another week before leaving work. There are a couple of part timers there, and I am going to speak to one of them about picking up my remaining shifts until my friend can do it. If that person can't, then I'll finish out one more week.
On the news now, they are talking about a restaurant in California that has a sign posted that says "No children, no crying babies, no high chairs or booster seats allowed in their restaurant. Nothing that distracts or annoys the diners is allowed. You are free to eat elsewhere."
So, what do you think? Personally, I understand perfectly what they are saying, and I appreciate it. There's nothing fun about trying to enjoy a relaxing meal when there is a kid whining or crying in the next booth. I feel for the uncomfortable child, but I'm not going to enjoy my meal and most likely won't go back to that restaurant. There are so many great restaurants where families can take their children, and I think it is good to have a few for just adults.
Yesterday, my grandson Kevin came by and spent a few hours helping me with lots of dusting and vacuuming. He's my hero!!! I can do these things, but they leave me breathless and take me forever to do, so this was such a huge help.
Guess what time it is! Yup, it's sticker time for my car. The sticker on my windshield runs out tomorrow. Up till now, I completely forgot about it. So, I called and made an appointment to take my car back to the dealer tomorrow morning for the safety inspection and new sticker. Phew! Just in the nick of time!
Before I take my leave, I do have one really fun photo to share. This cute little critter came out of hiding to enjoy some of the bread that Joe had put out for the birds and other yard critters. He's just a youngster, only a tad bigger than most of the squirrels here, and was way across the yard when I shot the photo from the kitchen window.
Now it's time for me to get dressed and go through a pile of magazines and papers. I like to remove all places where my personal information is before putting them into the recycle bin. Later, I'll sit down and do a whole bunch of shredding. Fun, fun, fun. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
