Yesterday AM, after our walk, Den began to feel achy, feverish and blah in general. Shortly thereafter, the porcelain throne beckoned him…and beckoned him….and continued to do so …He ended up on the couch, assuming the position of one who has succumbed to the dreaded “flu bug”…I almost took his photo, but figured that was cruel and unusual treatment..and I would NOT appreciated if he returned the favor…Sooooo, today is Wednesday, and he is still reclined on the couch. I just fixed him some soup and it gave him a belly ache…Nice try, Donna..but it was a “no go”… So today I took my 2 mile “gimp” by my lonesome. When I looked at the thermometer, I almost had a stroke…and then I saw these 2 Doves sitting on our deck railing….
They were all fluffed up trying to stay warm…so, I took my cue from them, grabbed my camera, begrudgingly jammed on my winter coat , hat and gloves (I know, this weather is just WRONG!)..and headed out the door. Let me just say that the wind blew me back two steps for every step I took. The sun was shining though, so I tried to stay away from heavily treed streets with shadows…and I managed to get some pictures that LOOK like Spring along the Sandwich streets…
Notice the school bus waaay down the street in this photo. McGyver and I just happen to do our walk about the same time all the kids are going to school, about 7:30AM…This can be life threatening in itself, what with kids running, jumping and skipping around us “old” peeps…Not to mention the traffic, like a long never ending snake, weaving it’s way through town…And it’s not uncommon to encounter a frazzled teen driver, running late, talking on their cell phone and not watching for any “gray hair” in their path.
Today, I left McGyver home to keep the couch warm and did a run to the Goodwill Store and Kohl’s…I called him on my new cell phone a few times to make sure he was OK, and not passed out on the bathroom floor.(Me and my cell phone are trying very hard to get along)…Den said he was doing fine by himself, so I reloaded my credit card and moved on to WalMart…Here’s a question for you girls…Exactly WHEN did bras become so expensive? It seems that now you have to choose between a bra and groceries!!! I absolutely hate paying so much for something that no one (almost) sees!! And when does it become OK NOT to wear one?? Because, I’m all over that idea…I sooooo hate the darn things.. They make me feel like I am in a corset and am being stabbed by coat hangers…Is it just me???? Truthfully, I have seen a few men who should be browsing the “over the shoulder boulder holder” aisle for themselves….
This month of April is almost half over..and we are waiting for the warmth to come back…Our granddaughter is performing in a musical at her middle school on April 29th. Their 7th Grade Class is performing “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, which I believe was a 60’s movie with Julie Andrews…The kids have to learn to tap dance and there is lots of singing involved. I love to watch kids performing..There are so many talented young people out there, and these events give them a chance to shine!!
OK, as you can tell, this blog was thrown together today…I’m not accustomed to having nonstop access to the computer for 2 full days. You would think I could have come up with more fodder for the blog…Hopefully, Dennis will be better tomorrow. I will know he is getting better when he sits down immediately at the computer with his coffee and checks our email, sorting out the ones from Nigeria saying we have inherited a gazillion dollars..Those people are always “seeking our earnest cooperation in this matter” …Or, (and this is my favorite) :
“We have $19.8million in a bank. You can be named as Beneficiary & Administrator. I make legal papers & show bank. Bank makes transfer to you. We share 50 - 50.Reply with your name, address & telephone numbers.”
NO, REALLY?? I’ LL GET RIGHT ON IT….NOT!
That’s about it for today in the germ infested life of the Cave Dwellers…Right now, I think I’ll find myself a bottle of Germ-X and hang it around my neck, and maybe stick a few Lysol wipes in my pocket..
