The Snow Is Finally Gone!!!

July 16, 2015

Good morning.   Well today is a bit cooler, and I must say that it feels really good.  Temps will be in the mid 70's and tonight is supposed to be around 54 degrees.  Oh, that will feel so good for sleeping.   Then the temps will go back up to hot and sticky for another week.  Ah well, it is summer!

DIL Janet came by yesterday afternoon after work, and we had ourselves a really nice visit.  There was so much to chat about, and the hours just flew by.  Janet is in the process of making some home improvements, and I can't wait to see everything when all the work is finished.  One of her projects is a three season room.  Oh my, that should be fabulous!

I'm watching the Weather Channel, and they are showing photos of the Boston snow piles that have finally melted.  Folks, this is snow from this past February, and it took five months to melt.  Wow!  Now that's a bunch of snow!

Well, today Pogo has an appointment with his doctor.  He has to have his heartworm test (he should be just fine), and I want him checked. It appears, from his symptoms, that he may have a nasty cold.  I'm wondering if it is from the ceiling fan.  My room is not very big, so when the fan is on it blows air down on just about everything in the  room.  With the heat we've been having, the fan is on most of the time.

Today I have more photos of our lilies.   They are all different sizes and colors, and are quite beautiful.





A couple nights ago, I started reading my new book "Memories Of Maggie".  Wow, Martha Raye was an awesome woman!  She started her career when she was three years old, performing with her parents in vaudeville.  At eighteen, she made her Broadway debut, and she entertained our troops through World War II, Korea and Vietnam. 

Somewhere in the book, I read that when they added up all her tine spent with the troops in Vietnam, she was there for at least two years.  Wow!   While other celebrities would entertain in the "safe" areas in Vietnam, Maggie spent her time venturing into all the dangerous little outposts, spreading warmth and love to all our boys.  She was the only entertainer to visit most of these really dangerous places.  No wonder the veterans love her so much!  Folks, if you have a chance, this book is a great read.

Well, that's about all my news for this morning.  I have some blog reading to do while I drink my coffee.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You had me a little concerned with the title, thought you still had snow in your yard or something. Still...that is a long time for a pile of snow to melt.

The daylilies are lovely.

We've had a hot spell here as well, today is cooler and it should start raining soon. I don't mind the heat so much, but it's so humid nothing ever feels dry.

It is hard to imagine having snow, when we are having 100 degrees. What a difference locations make. Take care and stay warm.

I will have to read that book, it sounds really interesting. I do hope Pogo is okay, let us know after his check-up. I worry more about my Kobi, then myself. She's still young though. I have to take her for her heartguard soon too. we don't have alot of cases here in Vegas, too hot and not enough water for alot of mosquitos, but people do have pools and it's a small price to pay to make sure she is healthy!

I was a bit right about Pogo, wasn;t I? It just wasn;t the airco, but the ceiling fan who might be the reason for his little cold. The poor guy cannot support that, I think.
Wonderful that the visit of Janet was so nice. but what is she meaning with "doing a 3 season room?"
Lovely, those lillies and also lovely the temps are not so sticky at the moment. Specially at night a few degrees less makes a great difference in the way we sleep!

Have a great day,
Hugs
