It's Almost Fla Fla Time!

February 8, 2018

Good morning.  Tis quite cold and gray outside at the moment.  I'm not sure what we're in for today, but I don't think it's more snow.  Not that it matters much.  Whatever will be, will be.  It is cold though, only 23F degrees.  But, there's only forty more days till Spring!  Woo Hoo!

Well, yesterday daughter Deanne picked up my meds, so I did get started on an antibiotic.  As I type, the sun has come out! Let's hope this is an omen of good things to come.  At the very least, I don't seem to be as cranky this morning as I have been lately. 

Time for Fla Fla is getting here pretty soon.   This is a personal joke of mine and my late hubby's.  Years ago, when we first started going to Florida, we saw Fla things everywhere.  Fla mugs, Fla shirts, Fla souvenirs, etc.  So Florida became Fla Fla. 

Did I ever mention about my first adventures of  trying to find me a Fla mug?  Of course, this was many years ago, and my brains weren't up on the modern Florida talk.  We went to so many gift shops and souvenir stores looking for a Fla mug.  I could not find any, so I finally asked a store clerk.  She pointed me to the Florida mugs.  DUH!  I'm much smarter now!

Yesterday, I amused myself for a while by watching one of the shopping channels.  Of course, I was lucky enough to find something that I just had to have.  It's called a No Contract Hot Spot.  These past few years, the resort in Florida has installed Wi Fi.  However, it's not secure, and somehow, it always manages to mess up my laptop and all my passwords.  So I figure that having my own hot spot for Wi Fi will be safer for me, and it is secure. 

Pogo had an appointment with his doctor today to get his check up and his travel health papers, but I had to re-schedule it for next week.  One way or another, I have to get him there.  We will be on that plane to Florida.

Today, I have a cute photo to share of great granddaughter Alena.  Here she is helping Grandpa out in his taxidermy shop.  (Would you believe she's only five?)   I wouldn't be surprised if she was working on her own pieces in just a few years.

Now that I've finished my breakfast, it's time to take my meds.  Then I'll wait an hour or so and take my vitamins.  After a bit of blog reading, it's back to the grind.  (tax stuff, groan, groan, groan)

On that note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

The Hot spot thing sounds good and if it keeps you safe will be worth the money.
