Good morning. Gosh, good news this morning. We're not expecting any snow for quite a few hours. It's still cold, only 12F degrees, but nothing is falling from the sky. Woo Hoo!!
There's a lot of talk on TV about the parade in Boston today to celebrate the Patriot's victory win. I think it is a wonderful way to boost peoples' morale and show appreciation for the team. However, I think if the city can clear streets and sidewalks for the parade, they should be able to clear sidewalks and streets where residents live too.
I've heard so much on the news lately of "Where will we put all this snow?", but I just heard (on TV) that Boston has "snow farms" where they dump all the snow. That said, they should fill dump trucks with all the snow on the side streets and truck it off to these snow farms.
Schools are open again, yet photos were being shown on TV of a school where no sidewalks or paths were shoveled. It did not mention how many schools were in this same situation. If I had school age children, this would really bother me. So folks, make sure your kids' school has it's walks all cleared. We don't want children having to walk in the street.
On a lighter note, want to see a pretty photo? As much as I'm not too crazy about all the snow, I do see the beauty in it. Here's a shot of my flag in all it's glory with a beautiful snowy background.
Do you remember a while back that I mentioned ordering some stuff so that I could get the freebie that was offered? Well, that freebie was a pair of "Wizard Of Oz" socks, and I wanted them for Jazzy. Here's a photo of the socks. (photo is from website)
What I did not know was that Deanne had ordered a pair of ruby slippers for Jazzy. So when the shoes came, she took a photo of them with and without the Oz socks. Such fun!
An update on Kevin: He went for a series of tests with a specialist yesterday, and he goes back next Monday to have a procedure done. I'm not sure what, so I'll have another update on this next week.
An update on Eddie: His surgery went well, and yesterday he was up and trying to walk. Groan, groan, groan. I can't imagine how that had to hurt. Eddie, I'm wishing you a speedy recovery, and Pogo sends a woof and a lick for his favorite uncle.
Well that's my news for this morning. Now I'm going to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and warm, and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
