Super TV

June 24, 2022

Good morning.  Today will be in the seventies and mostly cloudy.  Tomorrow and Sunday will be hot and sunny.  This morning I'm watching the Cartoon show.  Some days I just have to feel sorry for the Coyote as he chases after the Road Runner.  He never wins.  Just once, you'd think the writers would let him win a little bit.

My morning (weekdays) TV is pretty good.  It starts with "Dragnet", then "My Three Sons", "Leave It To Beaver", "Perry Mason", "Matlock", and "In The Heat Of The Night".  That's five hours of awesome TV.  After that, I watch "Law & Order", "Blue Bloods" and the game shows.  Now you can see why I'm going to enjoy that TV on my porch.

Here's a photo of my tomatoes.  There are quite a few of them growing.

I learned a new word this week too.  Kerfuffle.  A kerfuffle is a disturbance or commotion typically caused by a dispute or conflict.  EX:  "In all the kerfuffle, nobody seemed to have noticed...."

There's a commercial on the TV now about a foldaway fan.  Did you know that people take fans with them when they go fishing, and out into the yard when they are gardening?  According to the television commercial they do.  I have never seen fans at either of these places.  

Here's a great image that I borrowed from the web.  I wish all folks would realize that when the ground is hot, it's probably too hot for your pets too.  

Now it's time for me to get back to my TV programs.  So, till Monday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.

The Price Of Milk

June 22, 2022

Good morning.  Today will be cloudy with temps in the low seventies.  Another awesome day.  I hope all this awesome weather doesn't mean that summer is going to be wicked hot.

Yesterday I paid all the bills, and today I think I'll clean out a bag full of junk mail.  I'm saving my crocheting for evening time.  

I found a very interesting map online and borrowed it to share with you.  This one tells what it costs for a gallon of milk in every state.  

There's quite a difference in prices.  $0.93 to $3.78.  At least, I think I got all the prices.  I tried to find out what year this information came from but I had no luck.  I find it very interesting that states with the highest and lowest prices are right next to each other.  How can this be?

Here's a super new tee shirt that I found on the web.  It says I have OCD.  Obsessive Crochet Disorder.  

I wonder who thinks up all these super sayings for the tee shirts.  It has to be an awesome job.

Today "Meals On Wheels" came by again with a meal for me.  This is the second time they've come by.  I don't know how I got on the list, but it sure is nice.

Now it's time to watch In The Heat Of The Night.  Mornings I watch "Perry Mason", "Matlock", and "In The Heat Of The Night".  Three very different types of crime stories.  Awesome!

So, till Friday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Happy Juneteenth

June 20, 2022

Good morning.  Today we celebrate Juneteenth.  It's a national holiday, but not everyone celebrates it.  Today is also my son Gary Jr's birthday.  Happy Birthday Gary Jr.  Have an awesome day.

Today will be sunny with temps in the seventies.  A super day to enjoy being outdoors.  My plants are loving these temps too.  I already have several little tomatoes on my plant.  That's more than last year's plant got all summer.

For some reason, I haven't been spending very much time crocheting.  This is not good.  These afghans will never get finished if I don't spend some time working on them.  Instead, I've been doing lots of puzzles. (Find A Word and Crossword)   I love doing puzzles.

I found this picture of the poison ivy plants.  It shows how each of them looks.  This is good to know, especially now when all the plants are growing.

I guess not everyone knew that today was a holiday because the whole neighborhood put out their trash barrels this morning.  No trash is being picked up today.  Trash will be picked up tomorrow.

Now I think I'll have a look in the refrigerator to see what's for lunch.  So, till Wednesday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

New Words

June 17, 2022

Good morning.  Today is sunny with clouds, and temps will be near eighty degrees.  Another nice day for sitting outside.  And I will be after I finish using my laptop.

I learned another new word this morning.  Vyepti.  What is it?  It's a prescription drug used to help prevent migraine episodes in adults.  I often wonder how they come up with the names for all the new drugs.  Vyepti.  Hmmmm.

I have tomatoes beginning on my plant.  Today I'll have to try to get some photos.  This plant is rather thick so I think I'll get quite a few tomatoes.  That would be nice.

Here's a photo I borrowed from the web.  Do you recognize this fellow?

In 1950, when he was just 18, he was drafted into the United States Airforce.  Have you guessed who he is yet?  He's Willie Nelson.  He was quite a handsome young man.

I found this really adorable picture (on the web) of a fox and a rabbit, and thought it really should be shared.  I love how animals get along together so well.

Now it's time for me to enjoy some blog reading.  So, till Monday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.

This And That

June 15, 2022

Good morning.  Except for Friday, this week's temps should be in the seventies.  Very comfortable for sitting outside.  This is good because that's exactly what I'm planning on doing today.

I used to wonder why so many bloggers cut their posting back to once or twice a week from several days a week.  It seems that once we get to a certain age, not much happens so there's not much to talk about on our blog.  I'm at that age and it's not always easy to think of things to write about.

Today though, I can share photos of some of my roses.  This is still a young bush, and the blossoms are beautiful.

I need to check my tomato plant today.  Deanne's plant already has tomatoes on it.  Maybe mine does too?  That would be nice.  This photo is Deanne's tomato plant.

My Marigolds and Moss Roses are looking great with lots of colorful blossoms.  My white roses are beginning to blossom too.  I'll have to get a nice photo of them in bloom.  

I have a big bag full of junk mail out on the porch.  I'll try to get rid of most of it today.  I did order a small TV for the porch and it is supposed to arrive tomorrow.  I'll be glad when I can watch my programs while I'm sitting out there.

I watched a lot of TV thus morning so now it's time to be making something for my lunch.  On this happy note, I'll take my leave.  See you again on Friday.  Till then, stay safe and have a fantabulous day.  

Hugs, Edna B.

A Busy New Day

June 13, 2022

Good morning.  It rained a bit during the night, enough to leave a big puddle at the end of my driveway.  Today will be cloudy/sunny with temps around eighty degrees.  A good day to sit out on the porch for a while.  

I should read a chapter or two in my book too.  Normally I don't stop reading a book until I've reached the end of it but this one is different.  It's not my kind of "fun" reading so it's taking me a bit longer to read it.

This weekend, Joe cleaned the whole driveway.  My driveway is the size of a small yard.  It's more like a parking lot than a driveway, and it looks really nice now.  With all the trees in my yard, there's always tons of leaves, cones, twigs, etc all over the driveway.

Here's a photo of Twiggy.  You can see that is growing now.

Kevin's baseball season has started up again.  Yesterday, Deanne and Eddie went to Kevin's game and took this photo of him playing.  I'll have to make it one or two of his games too.  I do enjoy watching him play ball.

I think this will be a good week to wash my dresses.  Three or four of them need to be washed, and this is great weather for hanging them out on the line to dry.  Do any of you still hang clothes out on a line to dry after washing them?   I know most folks use a dryer these days, but there is something special about how clothes smell after drying out on a clothesline.  So fresh!

Today I have one more picture to share that I downloaded from the web.  How adorable is this little dog sniffing the rose?  Just beautiful!

Now I'm off to get a cold bottle of water and watch a bit of TV.  So, till Wednesday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

A New Book To Read

June 10, 2022

Good morning.  Today will be cloudy with temps nearing eighty degrees.  Another awesome day.  

I had ordered a new book and it came a couple days ago.  It's very slow reading though.  The book is called "Deacon's Crossbow" by David G. Brown.  It's about a crossbow killing on Interstate 95 on February 20, 1994.

The fellow with the crossbow (Donald Graham)  was my sister in law's husband.  They were on their way home from dancing class when this whole episode happened.   In court, Donald was sentenced to life in prison without parole.  Want to know what heppened?  You can find the book on Amazon for $15.00.  Or maybe your library has a copy that you can borrow.

On a happier note, I have yellow roses in bloom.  They really are quite beautiful.  Have a lookee.

I love roses of all colors but there is something special about yellow ones.  They are sort of like sunshine on a stem.  Oh so very beautiful.

I haven't been crocheting much lately so I guess that's what I'll do this afternoon.  I need to work on the afghans or they'll never get finished.  You can be sure that it will be a very long time before I make anything with blue and green yarns again.  (colors in the afghans)

Now it's time to make a cup of coffee and some breakfast.  So, till Monday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.
