Good morning. Wow! Can you believe it? Only 23 more days till Christmas! I'm at work, and it's not daybreak yet. It's 30 degrees F at the moment. The weather man says we can expect drizzle and temps reaching 56 degrees. Well, the 50 degrees will feel good.
Yesterday, Pogo and I got a big surprise when we went outdoors for his morning sprinkle. Everything was covered with snow. However, even when it is snowing, there is beauty out there if you look for it. We have a pink rose tree outside the living room windows, and it is still blooming. I took photos so that you could also see what put a big smile on my face. Aren't these gorgeous?
Wow, I'm watching the weather channel, and California is getting hit with lots of rain and floods. Gosh, what is happening with the weather? Never in my life have there been so many devastating storms. They just keep on coming with no let up.
I'm thinking that this would be a good time to start working on those water pipe lines in anticipation of upcoming droughts and fires. If Teddy Roosevelt were president, I'll bet he would have the water pipe lines already half built. The unemployment rate would be cut in half, and our economy would be on the upswing.
By the way, has anyone noticed or is it just me? Whenever bad storms hit other countries around the world, we are there immediately with billions of dollars in aid, plus food, clothing, medical and building supplies. And manpower. These past few years, we have been hit with several extremely devastating storms. I haven't heard of any of these other countries coming here with money and aid to help us get back on our feet. Did I miss something?
Another depressing thing, yesterday on the news the president said he plans to cut social security again to help pay off the humongous debt he has built up. Why are we cutting social security? This is money we have paid in all our lives and expect to get back once we reach a certain age. If congress would stop using our money for other projects, we would be okay. If the president would keep his fingers off this particular purse, a lot of elderly folks could breathe a bit easier.
Okay, now I'm getting testy. Time for me to close the laptop and go check on the Mrs. Soon it will be time to go home. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
