Good morning. It's going to be hot, hot, hot here all week. There's a tiny breeze this morning, so I opened the door and raised the bottom window on the storm door in order to enjoy that little breeze. Soon, it will be in the upper 80's, with probably no breeze.
Today the oldest person in the world is celebrating her 116th birthday. She was born in Alabama in 1899. Wowee!! Susannah Mushatt Jones, of Brooklyn, says that the key to longevity is bacon, lots of sleep, love and positive energy. Congratulations, and Happy Birthday Susannah.
It's been very quiet here at the house. Everyone is tired from the busy holiday weekend. Some of the dwarfs went to the nearby Brockton Fair Saturday night, and then stayed to watched the fireworks display. This is the 140th year the Brockton Fair has been here, and it is the last year it will be here. It has been something wonderful and fun to look forward to every year, and will be missed.
I do have photos to share of a lovely plant that is flourishing in the little garden by our front door. Some folks may call this a weed, but weeds are plants, and this one is really pretty. It is called Creeping Bellflower (Campanula Rapunculoides), and it makes a lovely splash of purple color by the pink rose tree.
Today, I will see about installing Firefox, so that I can finish making my new blog book. I started making the book a few days ago, but my browser has been causing a few problems. I put in a call to Shared Book, and they suggested that I switch my browser to Firefox.
Right now, though, it's time to play with Pogo. He is crawling all over to me let me know that he wants to play. So, on that note, I'll take my leave. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
