Good morning. The sun is shining today, and the temperature is 51F degrees. Later, the temps will rise to the mid sixties. Starting tomorrow though, it looks like we may have a few days of the wet stuff. According to my phone app, that is. We'll just have to wait and see.
Some of you were not with me when I first got Pogo, and I get a few questions about why his tongue is always hanging out in his photos. Pogo spent his first six years with a breeder. He lived in a tiny cage with no toys or cuddles. He was an asset. And he was very badly neglected.
When the rescue shelter got him, he was in tough shape. He only had four teeth, and his mouth was so badly infected that he required a lot of surgery. Because of this, he has no teeth, and no bottom jaw. With nothing to hold his tongue in, it hangs out all the time.
When I got him, he weighed three and a half pounds. Since then, I've fattened him up a bit. Now he weighs around five and a half pounds. It takes him quite a while to eat his food because he can't bite it. He has to pick it up with his tongue. This isn't always very easy, but he does his very best. Did I mention that I spoil him rotten? I just can't help myself.
Today I have photos that I took in Florida a few years ago of trees with lots of moss lace hanging from them. They are really so beautiful to look at.
This next photo was taken in a parking lot at the old Kissimmee WalMart parking lot. It's a barren tree that is used as a popular lookout spot. This bird sat there for quite a while, preening and enjoying the warm sunshine.
I was going to post a few more Blue Laws here, but I'll save them for Sunday's post. Instead, I have a gorgeous photo to share with you. My daughter is in flight, on her way here from Virginia. She just sent me this photo that she took around seven o'clock this morning as they flew over New York. Oh wow, Audrey. This is beautiful!
I've been watching Shop LC on TV this morning. Wow, some of the bargains are just awesome. If you're looking to do a bit of Holiday shopping, you might want to look these folks up. If you don't have the channel, you can always find them on Google and then download their app to your phone or tablet. Today everything is $9.99 or less.
An update on the little white doggie from yesterday....His owner came by to pick him up. She was very happy to have him back. And, guess where she lived?? Right next door to me! I never even knew they had a little dog over there. (I mostly stick to my own business)
Last evening, Deanne and Eddie came by and Eddie fixed my toilet. Now it can be flushed just by touching the handle. No more sticking my arm into the tank to find the chain that has to be pulled up. Thank you Eddie. I really do appreciate this.
Now I'm off to do a few things around here before my daughter gets here. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
