Good morning. Tis a bit gray and wet outside this morning. There are little puddles everywhere. I was going to take Pogo out to walk around the yard today, but we may have to wait until tomorrow. He does not like getting his little feet wet. Of course, I don't blame him. I don't care for walking barefoot in the yard when it is raining either.
I guess I'll have to try again to find Pogo a set of tiny boots. I have found some small ones, but they were not small enough. His little feet are really tiny! I'm not sure how the teeny boots will even stay on because his little legs are rather skinny. Ah well, this can be a project for this new year.
I'm going to have to decide whether to take Pogo's stroller to Florida this year, or whether to use a different carry case for him. He has one carry case that has wheels and a pull handle. Unfortunately, this one is not as much fun for him when we go anywhere. On the other hand, maneuvering my way around at the airport and the baggage terminal isn't always easy with the stroller. It makes it more difficult to handle my suitcase and carry-on bag. Well, I have time to figure this one out.
Quite some time ago, I cut an article out of the newspaper about all the jobs that Walmart is cutting. Now that it's the first of the year, a lot of folks (who work at Walmart) will be finding themselves without jobs.
And do you remember all those TV ads about how awesome they were going to be treating their employees? About how they were going to be paying them better wages so that they (the employees) could enjoy a better way of life? Well, to date, I haven't found anyone who actually got any of these new benefits.
Believe me, I have asked lots of Walmart employees, and they all act like they don't know what I'm talking about. It seems to me that all Walmart has done is do away with jobs and cut employee benefits. Because this is such a large company, one would think that they could do better for their employees.
On a brighter note, I found a couple of really easy recipes for beauty products that I thought some of you might be interested in.
My elbow and wrist are feeling much better now, and Deanne and I will be going to the shooting range again on Friday afternoon. It's gong to feel good to be getting back to practicing. I won't overdo though. If my wrist starts to bother me, I'll stop using it. (till the next time!)
Well, the mailman will be here soon, and I have a stack of bills to put out for him. When I got up during the night last night, I used the time to pay bills. I also crocheted for a little while before crawling back under the covers and finding my way back to dreamland.
That's my news for this morning. Now it's time for me to order my new blog book. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
