Good afternoon. Tis sunny and cold again today, but Pogo and I braved the cold this morning and went out to take Jazzy to the college. After that, we headed for the kitty shelter. Oh my, what a treat we were in for. When we got there, we found the whole back yard filled with hundreds of ducks.
Oh my, they were all so beautiful. It seems that this wonderful lady, Lillian, and her hubby feed all the ducks from the nearby pond all during the cold weather. How awesome is that! I took a couple videos of the ducks, Here is one of the videos showing all the ducks. They've all come for their lunch.
The new CD that I bought came yesterday. Here's the song that I bought it for. It's called "My Wife." I hope you enjoy it. This is from Youtube.
Yesterday, Deanne came by after work and did a whole batch of wrapping for me. Wowsie! There's still a lot to go, but she made a huge dent in it. Today I think I'll try to get all the wrapped items into mailing boxes. Maybe I can even mail a few of them out by the first of the week. Woo Hoo!
The burner guy came by yesterday and fixed the problem with the furnace. However, he also discovered a new problem. Oh no! It's a BIGGIE. It seems that somewhere in the house there is a pipe, or pipes, leaking down through the floors and into the basement. So right away he started checking rooms to find the leaks. He found it right away.
Sadly, the nozzle on the radiator in the room that dwarf Helen has recently vacated had been broken off. It had to have happened the night she moved out because there was no leak before that. Because the room was closed, we did not spot the leak. The floor was flooded with water, both large rugs were soaked, and the water was running to the (closed) fireplace and down into the basement.
The burner guy fixed the leak, and later Joe cleaned up the mess when he got home from work. Unfortunately, I also learned that I will have to be replacing a lot of the plumbing in the basement. Aye yi, yi! So now I'm waiting for the owner of the company to call me for an appointment to come over and give me an estimate. Then I can try to figure out how to afford it. Yup, when it rains, it pours!
Now it's time to make some lunch for Pogo and me. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
