Good morning. Tis a bit cooler today. Only about 50F and rainy. Ahh, but the last two days sure were lovely. The next few days are supposed to a bit cooler, with more rain tomorrow.
Well, yesterday our plans got changed again. So what else is new? Pogo and I were planning on picking up lunch and visiting a friend. However, when I called the friend, she was not having a very good day with her breathing. So, I spent the next couple of hours on the phone chatting with her.
It seems that she only buys some of her meds because that is all she can afford. In turn, that means that she cannot breathe as good as she could if she had all of her meds. This really irks me. It's what the government and the insurance companies are doing to us older folks. Price our meds out of reach, and hopefully we will all just die off quietly.
Unfortunately, our breathing meds are very expensive. Instead of the government sending billions of dollars to other countries, they should be taking care of their own citizens first. Notice, I said "citizens" !!! We are the people who have always paid our taxes to keep this country going. We're still paying taxes, but somehow we're not so important anymore. It's sort of like the government is saying: "Just pay your taxes until you slip quietly and quickly into oblivion."
Does it sound like I'm angry? You're darn right I am!! Will the government ever learn to appreciate and be fair to it's senior citizens?
On to a brighter note, I did promise Pogo some takeout lunch from Burger King yesterday, so later in the afternoon, I took him for a ride to pick up his favorite, a double hamburger - plain with no pickles and condiments. This was for his supper and his late night snack.
Yesterday's mail brought my order of Christmas cards. Oh my, they look so nice, and I couldn't wait to start addressing some of the envelopes. I figure if I do a few every day, they'll all be done in no time at all.
Last night I worked for a while on the lavender afghan. I finished the green one a couple of days ago. Gosh this one is really pretty.
DIL Janet hasn't been by lately because both her sister and sister in law have been having health problems that required surgery. So, she has been spending time with them. Unless things change, she will be by later today and spend the evening visiting with us. Hmmm, I think I'll make her favorite for supper. Baked macaroni and cheese. Oh yum yum!!
That's my news for this morning, so on that happy note, I'll take my leave. Tomorrow's post may be a bit late because I have to take my car in for a seasonal check-up. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
