Good morning. Tis sunny and cold at the moment, but the forecast says we might be getting snow today. Hmmm, we'll see. It's really hard to forecast the weather here, and get it right. Tomorrow is supposed to be the warmest day of this week, so I guess Pogo and I will go to Town Hall tomorrow and pay the taxes and get his new dog license.
Actually, the bill is due tomorrow, so I have to go whether I want to or not. No more procrastinating, I've run out of time. Somehow, that's me though. I put things off till I can't anymore. Especially if it means going out. I'm not so keen on going places alone anymore.
Yesterday, Deanne came by after work and we went to the shooting range. My daughter is really good with the bigger pistol, whereas I'm better with the .22 pistol. Deanne did awesome, as usual. My right hand was hurting quite a bit (arthritis) but still I didn't do too badly. Here's my target sheet.
Last night, I finished up the hat I was crocheting. Here's a photo of the whole set (scarf and hat).
I have another scarf almost finished. This one is a light orchid color. Once it's finished, and the hat is made, I'll go back and make hats for the other scarves too. I think some scarves will have fringe, while some hats will have a pom pom on the top.
Last evening, I rinsed my dishes and left them in the kitchen sink. As soon as I finish this post, I'll have to get them washed. I prefer washing them as soon as they are used, but sometimes it can't be helped.
How about some sassy trivia? Did you know that Grand Duke Alexis Romanov, son of the Czar of Russia, spent his 22nd birthday hunting buffalo in Nevada with Buffalo Bill Cody and General Custer?
I'll bet you didn't know that Henry Ford, the automobile magnate, published an instructional dance book in 1926. It was titled "Good Morning", and subtitled "After a Sleep of Twenty-Five Years, Old-Fashioned Dancing is Being Revived by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford."
Well that's my news for this morning. I'm off now to wash those dishes. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
