Good morning. What a pleasure to be able to turn on my laptop in the morning and be able to have access to the internet. DIL Janet and I are sitting here at the breakfast table, watching the news on TV and discussing the woes of the world. So far, we have not come up with any workable solutions that the public would go along with.
Yesterday we went looking for the little pond up the road, but did not find it. Well, we did find a little pond but it was on private property. Sad to say, most all the ponds and lakes around here are gated off to keep tourists out.
So, instead we went to the supermarket and picked up a few items. As we were leaving there to head home, I noticed an unusual car parked at the other end of the parking lot. Of course, being nosy, I drove over to investigate this vehicle which in fact was a hearse.
The unusual thing was where it was parked. It had a handicapped license plate on the back of it, and it was not parked anywhere near a building. It immediately reminded me of the hearse that my brother once owned. (That's a story for another day.) Here's a photo that I took.
But wait......is that a reflection on the rear passenger window, or is someone looking out at me? I'll have to get a little closer to find out.
Aha, I was right. There is someone peeking out at us. Somehow I don't think we'll stick around here too long. This person does not look very friendly. As I start to drive away, I notice the gorgeous hood ornament on the front of the car.
Wow, does this ever bring back memories of days gone by. When I was very young, all vehicles had an ornament on the hood. Some were just small emblems, while others were quite decorative.
As we left this parking lot, I noticed some flowering hedges and stopped to photograph them. I'd love to have some of these flowering hedges back home. They are really quite beautiful. Tonight, I'll sit down and crop a few of these photos to share here tomorrow.
Today I have a couple photos from our day last week at a local park. I'll have to look up the name of this park. It has been developed quite a bit since we visited it last year.
Pogo gets to run around in the grass for a while every now and then. Unfortunately, I can't just let him run around for a long time because he manages to get out of his harness. He's tiny, so it's hard to find a harness that is comfortable and fits securely.
This morning, we are heading out to visit a flea market. No matter how many times I visit the two flea markets close by, I always seem to find new things of interest. And it is a fun way to get some very much needed exercise.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
