Good morning. Tis another gorgeous Spring day today. Such a wonderful surprise I gor this morning. I woke up at 4:50 a.m. and it was daylight outside! In seven more days, on June 20th, it will be the longest day of this year.
Yesterday, Deanne and Eddie and I went shopping at Ocean State Job Lot. It felt good to leisurely wander around the aisles and see all the goodies. Of course, I can only wander for a short while and then my back and legs tend to give out. But I'm happy for the wandering that I do get.
When we got home, the first thing I did was to get back into my jammies and under the covers for a nap. I'm finding that I can't "take a licking and keep on ticking" anymore. I think that phrase came from an old ad for Timex watches.
Do you remember who made the commercials? It was John Cameron Swayze, and it was he who made the line "takes a licking and keeps on ticking" so famous. He died August 17, 1995.
While wandering around on the web the other day, I came across this fascinating image. It shows how much money you need to earn in order to be able to buy a house in each of our states. I was surprised to learn that my state (MA) was one of the most expensive states. Click on the picture to make it large enough to read the numbers.
Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
