Good Saturday Morning, Kids,
Time for a new Porch. All this talk about woodpeckers made me think I'd post one here. So many different ones to choose from. Be sure to check the last Porch for the posts at the end. The critters must have been having a good time in our little pond last night. All kinds of sounds. The gators are still on the hunt for a little lovin'. Trappers went out to pick one up that had been getting close to an elementary school. As the trappers approached, the gator rolled over and over trying to get away before they even got a snare around him. I'd never seen anything like it.
Now that we have three oldies channels I get on the antenna, there are so many old TV shows to watch. When I got up, Petticoat Junction was on. A silly show but it's fun to watch. Bea Benaderet played the mother. She was quite a successful actress and played George Burns and Gracie Allen's neighbor, Blanche, on their show. The Beverly Hillbillies was on too. I like Green Acres which was also a spinoff. So glad these old shows don't end up on the junk heap never to be seen again. Jack Benny is on right now. Sure a lot better than watching the news!
Sun, the little affair Claudine Longet Williams had ended up in her killing her lover, Spider Sabich. He was an Olympic skiier. I met him once at a Christmas party very briefly. Longet shot him but the jury only convicted her of negligent homicide and the judge gave her 30 days in jail which she served on weekends. She ended up with her defense atty. who was married at the time. I remember she was beautiful. Hope the trees got trimmed and you got some peace and quiet.
Julie, glad your doc appt. was good. I love my watch because I can do a medical quality EKG anytime. I've had palpitations once in a while for years and it's nice to be able to do one. I can send them to my doc if I want to but he's so low tech that I doubt he would have a way to receive them. I'm not very tech savvy but he's worse than I. The watch also gives me my pulse. Yes, it's important to recover when stopping the activity that drives up the pulse. Congratulations on the great dental appt. too. I almost never have cavities anymore but some of my crowns are really old and I hope no more of them break. I chipped one in addition to the one which broke but I don't have to replace it, at least, not now. Lordy, they are expensive to replace.
Joe just called to wish me a Happy Mothers Day because he'll be out of town tomorrow. I guess I had better get going. Hope all y'all have a wonderful start to the weekend.
