Happy Mothers Day

May 13, 2012

I want to wish all you ladies out there a very Happy Mothers Day.  And if you're not a Mom, not to worry.  You have a fabulous day too!  The sun is not up yet here, but it's supposed to getting up to about 80 degrees F today.  I guess it's time to take the windows out of the storm doors and put in the screens.  Oops, maybe I'll wait a few more days.  The weather man just said we have three days of rain coming beginning late tonight or tomorrow. 

On the weather channel this morning, they are talking about a ghost town that has been built in New Mexico and showing photos of it.  This marvelous town cost more than a billion dollars to build, and yet no one lives there.  (That's what they say.)  According to one speaker, this is supposed to a nice place for people to be where they can design and invent new ideas and things. 

I must have missed something important here.  You don't have to go far to find children and adults living under bridges and in tunnels.  Most towns and cities have their share of homeless sleeping in doorways and near sidewalk heating grates at night to keep warm. 

My bad.  I guess it really is more important to build a billion dollar ghost town where people can go to think, than to use  the money to give folks a roof over their heads and warm beds to sleep in at night.  Somewhere along the way, I must have missed the "brain" boat. 

Ladies, maybe we all need to rally together and take over this nation of ours.  We have the resources and the money to take care of our people and our country's problems.  We just have to take care of home first before we take on the whole world and every dreamer's fantasies.  This is something that all the men in Congress have not yet learned.

Oh boy, there I go again!!  Sorry 'bout that.  On another note, I just realized that my phone card ran out a few days ago.  This "no contract" idea has it's good side, but just not for someone like me.  I never remember to get a new card until my time runs out.  I will have to get to Best Buy tomorrow and tend to my phone.  Unless Dee Dee and Eddie stop by, then maybe one of them can do this over the phone for me.  I tried this myself last month, and did not do so good.

Okay, let's get to the freebie.  Here is the preview and download link for the second Rhodie  QP.  I think I like the background on this one best, so I've included a 12x12 background for you.

Here's your download link:


I also have a pretty photo of a sunset at our local park, taken a few weeks ago.  Tootsie and I want to get back to the park this week to see how the goslings have grown.  Maybe we'll get lucky and find a new swan family too.

Today, I think Tootsie and I will go for a walk.  Maybe one of the dwarfs would like to join us.  It's such a beautiful day and I want to enjoy it before going to work tonight.  On that note, I 'm going to rustle up some breakfast for my little girl and me.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I think the problem is in a lot of countries, with politicians. I know, we probably don;t see all of the difficulties, and yes, there are crisisses going one and yes, they have to do something about the governamental money that is lacking. But.........I too see and hear about projects that cost lots ofmoney, and take time and at the end are even a lot more expensive than they thought. And yes, still people in governamental posts have much too big incomes and even if they do it bad receive a bonus at the end of the year. And that is just the top of the iceberg! All that money could be spend more wisely.
But the billiard dollar ghost town beats it all! Is it build with government money or other? Anyhow, what good use is it????
As we are not able to change it, yet, we better enjoy the little things that please us in our life.
Another lovely qp and background you;ve made.
Should be nice if one of the dwarfs could go with you for a stroll, at times some company gives it a little extra.
Have a wonderful day, cuddle for Tootsie.
