Goodies In The Mail Today

October 21, 2019

Good morning.  Temps have warmed up a little bit.  Tis 55F degrees and headed for the mid sixties before dropping again.  According to my phone's weather app, we're supposed to be having rain today.  Right now, the sun is doing it's darndest to peek out from behind the clouds. 

I'm not going out today, so let it rain.  Today I'm planning on bagging some more blankets.  And, maybe fill up another Good Will bag.  I may even do a load of laundry.  I was going to do laundry yesterday, but I let my friend do her laundry here instead.

My friend Ellen came by and we had a wonderful visit.  She had laundry in her car so that she could stop at a laundramat on her way home.  I let her do her laundry here and we got to enjoy a much longer visit.  A win win for both of us! 

With bits of rain that we've been having lately, we have puddles for the birds to enjoy.  Here's a photo of one of the little sparrows enjoying some playtime in one of the puddles.

I peek in at Facebook quite often.  Not to post anything (I don't post anything personal other than Jazzy's music videos), but I do enjoy some of the crafts and other info that is shared there.  Here's another super idea that I saw there and downloaded to share here with you.

Oh my, the mailman just came and brought me a few of the packages that I've been waiting for.  Inside one of them is a Christmas present for Pogo's friend Sassy.  Inside another is a new purse to take to Florida with me next year. 

I have this thing about purses.  I love them.  Is that strange?  I know some folks collect shoes and fancy clothes, but I have a nice collection of purses.  Such a silly thing, but it puts a big smile on my face.  There's just something about a new purse!

Maybe I'll take my new purse with me this weekend when my girls and I go to the Paris Cabaret to see Carousel.  We'll see. 

Want some more silly laws?  In Utah, it's against the law to fish from horseback.  It is, however, legal to marry your cousin when you are fifty.  Oh my, it is illegal to detonate any nuclear weapon in Utah.  You can have them, but you just can't detonate them.  Really?  (more tidbits from AMAC magazine)

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before getting started on this new day.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Some crazy laws in certain places. Just wondering who want to marry their cousin. (lol) I know someone who did this in Louisiana. They were first cousins and grew up like sisters and brothers and when they got grown they got married. No, it didn't last and everyone thought it was a disgrace. I thought so. The world is full of disrespectful idiots. I have some I barely want to call them cousins instead of spouse. (lol) There's more people you can marry other than family.

We are getting a bit of rain with a little coolness. Most likely it won't last no time. There were tornadoes in Dallas and my sister in Shreveport said it stormed there and a few tornadoes was spotted there. Every place have their share of bad weather. I hope you and Pogo have a healthy and blessed day.

I do not think the purse collection is strange at all. I have a water bottle obsession, freebies obsession and a shoe obsession so I will not say anything at all! Who am I to judge - HA HA! Have a great day!

Glad you enjoyed your visit with Ellen and how nice to have a longer visit. I know she appreciated using your washer/dryer. Time passes so slowly in the laundromat. I pray you and Pogo have a blessed afternoon/evening.

I love reading these silly laws that you are sharing. I hope you have more.

How nice you had time with your friend. I know it was a good time for both of you and she got her laundry done on top of it!

I love the show Carousel. I hope you have a good time. And no, I don't think it is strange to have a purse collection. I have one too!

Well a long visit with a friend makes a great day! I have never liked to use a laundromat but have had to before. I am sure Ellen appreciated the use of your washer/dryer and you enjoyed the longer visit:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS ...Oh BTW, I love purses too(wink)!
