Good morning. Today's weather is quite lovely; sunny and warm (in the low 60's). It's a gorgeous Autumn day. After today, the cooler temps are back. I guess now is a good time to start my Spring countdown. Only 131 more days till Spring!!
Last evening, Deanne and I went to Aunt Lucy's wake. While we were there, I got to meet another of her sons (my cousin) and one of his daughters. He gave me his phone number so that we can stay in touch. I should explain here that when I was quite young (around seven or eight), my mother separated us from the rest of our families. Before this, we had lots of aunts and uncles and cousins. By the time my brother and I had grown up, we were sort of alienated from everyone.
The day I read about my Aunt Lucy in the newspaper, (over a year ago) I felt a deep need to re-connect with her. To be honest, she said that she felt the same way. My time with her in my life was very short, but it was beautiful. So getting to meet up with one of her sons felt really good.
When we left the wake, Deanne and I headed for our Gun Safety and Law class. The class was quite long, (four hours) but very educational. Everyone was finger printed again and we all got to fill out our application for the Utah - thirty four state gun permit. Before we can mail these applications, we have to get a passport photo and copies of other licenses to include with them. So that will be my project for this week.
Poor little Pogo must have thought that I had run away from home. I've never left him home alone for this many hours. But he was good, and when I got home I found him all snuggled up in the lap blanket on my lounge chair. After lots of hugs and kisses, I cooked him a hamburger for a late supper.
I borrowed this adorable Maxine cartoon from a friend's website because it really fits me to a tee.
Here's another cute image that I found on the web. I think I'll have to make this one into a sign to post on my porch.
The morning is quickly passing, so I think I'd best get dressed and try to accomplish a few chores. Maybe Pogo and I will go out to do a couple errands and enjoy this beautiful day. On this happy note, I'll take my leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
