Good morning. Tis cool and gray outside with a delightful breeze. Both flags are gently waving, what can I say? It's a gorgeous morning. It feels like it could rain, so I looked it up on Google. One site says there's a slight chance we could get a few showers, and another site says there's an 80% chance we'll have heavy thundershowers. I'm not sure who to believe, but a bit of rain will feel ever so nice.
Yesterday was sunny and warm most of the day. I was talking on the phone and when I looked up I saw raindrops falling off the porch roof. Oh my gosh, this is great! I told my friend that it was finally raining. When I got off the phone, I went out on the porch to see if we got much water and everything was dry. No puddles, nothing wet. Are you kidding? Did it rain, or was I wishing it so much that it really looked like rain?
Friday afternoon, after school, daughter Deanne came by and we went to the shooting range for our practice lesson. I must say, we enjoyed ourselves very much. We practiced with three different guns, and this is the one that I did the best with.
These are my two best target sheets. Deanne did very well too. That old saying "Practice makes perfect" still holds true. On the top sheet, my first shot went off the paper, then I concentrated and all the rest went right to the middle. Our next practice class is next Friday afternoon.
Today I have some new piles of magazines and newspapers to go through and put out in the recycle bin. These things seem to pile up really fast when I am not paying attention. I guess that will be my big project for today.
My niece had a stroke recently and is in the hospital, not doing very well at all. Her life saving equipment has been turned off, and everyone has said their goodbyes. Now it is just a matter of time. This is so sad. She is very young and will be leaving behind a husband and three small children. Folks, tomorrow is not guaranteed. It's a gift. So hug your loved ones and let them know how much you love them while you can.
Now I'm off to find some mischief to get into with my partner in crime, Pogo. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
