I had to laugh

p>You know that feeling when you are driving somewhere – usually alone – you arrive at your destination or…squirrel…something knocks you out of your trance and you have no idea how you got there because you have been in a hypnotized state since the last time you can remember something getting your attention.  Well, it is like me and the Des Moines Register.  I read the obituaries.  The last several times, I’ve gotten some alert that says I have “x” number of free views…I know now that I’ve seen them, but that ah ha moment ticked me off none the less this morning when I was told I’ve had all of the free views I’m gonna have unless I shuck out 10 dollars a month to read the paper on line.

KCCI bumbling Kevin Cooney has been saying for some time – OUR FREE WEB SITE – this must be what he is talking about.

$10 a month – hell no – there are many other places to get my news….and I’ll be retired so I can just bookmark all of the web sites for funeral homes.

That’s what irritated me this morning.

Until next time….

Spring in the country

I’ve had a bit of a bug that last couple of days..feeling better today.

News reporter from KCCI TV in Des Moines died yesterday…She had been with the station for 29 years…I’m feeling really bad about it – anchors were having a bad time of it last night when they had to annouce the death.  I guess the woman has been coming into my living room for 29 years, it is okay to have a hurt spot in my heart for her.

He is out working on the mower….He came in for a drink of water and i asked him what was going on…he said,  I’M TRYING TO GET THE BLADES OFF THE MOWER TO SHARPEN THEM … A 15 MINUTE JOB HAS TAKEN ME TWO HOURS ….


He cut off a pipe and stuck the plier thingys in the end then had me come out and push one way while he was unloosening the other and they came off :: brilliant::

It is so green and the flowers in the flower beds are coming up nicely…


It is time to get mulch around the trees and mulch the beds and pull weeds that are already taking over 😦

My other issue today is how am I to kill all the little spring ants on the counter now that I have frick and frat…can’t be putting ant poison out…

Billy and Benny have taken control of the side by side windows in the computer room.  They are totally content although there is a breeze from the west today and Benny the little one looks like he is encoutering a tornado when he tries to get to the window…once he is there he is set but he crouches down low and the wind blows his hair and his ears go back and he forges ahead…extremely funny – guess you have to be here.

Until next time….
