Good morning. Wow, what a difference in the temps this morning. It's 51F degrees and headed toward a high of 57F degrees. Of course, it does come with lots of rain. It's only misting at the moment, but give it time. There is a breeze however, and my flag is waving happily over the front porch.
I was just reading an article in our newspaper about the flu here in Massachusetts, where the health experts are saying that it is surging. Last year was the worst flu season since 2009, and it contributed to the death of an estimated 79,400 people nationwide.
What can we do about this? Get your Flu shot! It takes two weeks for the shot to take effect. If you have not had your shot yet, please do so now because we still have a way to go in this year's flu season. Call your doctor if you start having flu symptoms. Stay home from school and/or work to keep from spreading the flu to others.
Another article that caught my eye is about a man shooting another man over the purchase/sale of a car. They were arguing over the selling price of the car, and one man pulled out a gun and shot the other guy. What caught my interest was the fact that the shooter did not have a license to be carrying the gun.
This is important because the "anti-gun" folks would have you think that all the gun killings are done by licensed gun owners. This is not the case. I do believe that a bit of research would find that most killings are done by unlicensed people who have illegal weapons. Instead of threatening us with more gun laws, why not just enforce the laws that are already on the books?
That's the end of my "mini rant."
Today I have another angel coloring page for you. This is also from Dover, where you can get your own coloring pages for free by signing up for them. DoverPublications.com. This is the Guardian Angel of Cats. Enjoy.
I did not get to go out yesterday after all. Instead, Pogo and I had a lazy day (what else is new?) and finished it off with a take out order of Chines food for our supper. As usual, I ordered extra Pork Lo Mein because this is our favorite and we like to have it the next day too. Which we did. For breakfast this morning. Yum, yum.
Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before looking for some mischief to get into today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
