Good morning. This is my second attempt to type this post. I was busy typing, and Blogger just wiped everything out with no warning at all. This very frustrating!!!
I've been up since around 3:30 a.m., and have already done a bit of work on my laptop. Now I think I'll have me a cup of coffee, and check my shopping list. We did not get to go grocery shopping yesterday, so we are going early this morning.
There has been a terror threat for Boston, for the Fourth of July Celebration. I've been watching a video on the news of all the extra security measures being implemented to investigate this threat and to make sure the public will be safe.
Imagine the cost of all this extra security. Now imagine the cost to the taxpayers of this state to hold the Olympics here. There is no way we can afford to pay for any of this. So why is the Olympic committee so hell bent on having the Olympics held here. Most of the citizens of this state DO NOT want to have them here. We DO NOT want to have to pay for any of it. We can't afford our own bills, so what in the world makes anyone think that we should take on this project?
Also in the news is the little girl whose body was found at Deer Island about a week ago. No one seems to be able to identify her. This is so sad. How can you not know that your child is missing? Government officials are asking anyone with any information to come forward so that they can give this little girl a name.
Yesterday, we had a tiny bunny in our yard, happily munching on greenery. I got my cell phone, but this little kid was just too fast for me. The best photo I could get was this one taken from the kitchen window. Unfortunately, The bush outside the window blocked most of my view.
I also found a new crochet pattern online that I'm going to try soon. It's a rather pretty shawl.
Pogo has run out to the pantry to bark, so that means that Joe is up now. So, I'll have to go open the pantry door now so that Pogo can go into the house and have his turkey treat.
I want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Fourth of July. If you can't get out to watch any local fireworks displays, I'm sure there will be some televised for your area. I know I'll be watching the Boston celebration on TV. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a wonderful weekend and a safe holiday.
Hugs, Edna B.
