Good Friday Morning, Kids,
We are almost up to 50 posts on the last Porch so decided I had better open a new one. Check out the last few posts. This picture makes me think of walking home from school when I was a kid. This could be my childhood neighborhood. I can still remember how the fallen leaves smelled when they got wet. I still remember how it felt to fall into a pile of raked leaves. I remember how the excitement built waiting for Halloween night and trick or treating.
I woke feeling a bit better so had some toast and coffee. Hope it doesn't upset my stomach. It was iffy last night. We all got the FJ question and we are proud because only the champ got it. Honestly, I sometimes wonder how a few of those contestants got on the show in the first place. Maybe they just get unlucky in categories. I feel sorry for them when they bomb. Not that I could do any better myself.
There are multiple potential storms forming in the Atlantic. Spaghetti models have Jerry turning before reaching us but ya never know. It is the tenth named storm this year. We have temps in the 80's now and the humidity is much lower. That's good news. I have to run to Publix today. I'm out of everything. The multi whole grain bread is on BOGO just when I need it. I also want to pick up some of my beloved spicy turkey breast from the deli. Hope it doesn't upset my stomach further. SV needs some litter and I hope the Slide litter isn't too much. They usually have decent prices on it. The slide is really nice and cleans up more easily. I could make a run to WM to buy it. I always like to see the fall decorations and treats. I need to pick up something for the little boys at the end of the building for Halloween. I like to get something other than candy.
Just got an email from Amazon. Every now and then, they give me a $3 credit toward a Kindle book. I downloaded one that was only $3.99 to begin with. It's about a woman sniper in the military. Sounds exciting. I'm finding I can barely get through nonfiction books anymore without drifting off almost immediately. Amazon Prime is buying a fleet of electric delivery vans instead of using FedX. I saw a delivery van of theirs the other day but don't know whether it was electric.
Granni, geez, that's awful about all the rain and businesses closing. Lotsa film on the news of flooded streets. DSIL sent a pic that someone in Galveston had sent to him. He didn't know yet whether their place got flooded. I hear ya about how hard it is to forgive and come to grips with everything. It's been 50 years since I first found out what my father did and 30 years since my divorce. Now maybe I can work on not being judgmental. Good grief! Will this take 30-50 years? I'll be dead and gone by then. I'm laughing at your thinking I'm more physically active. I did nothing yesterday. I always think how active you are.
Julie, those are some lucky deer to have you provide a salad bar for them. Hmmm, maybe we could come up with some alternative anniversary gifts to replace the current ones. First year could be nails, second year screws, third year hammers, etc. A drill would make a good 10 year gift, a circular or miter saw for the 15th anniversary and a chain saw for the 25th. I don't know where a backhoe would fit in but that might be the mother of all gifts. Modern couples need some alternatives.
OK, a little silliness to start the day. Nothing better!
