Good Thursday Morning, Dear Porchies,
It's time for a new Porch. Be sure to go back to read all the posts on the last one. I found this pic of clouds that occur over mountainous areas. It's possible these were Photoshopped but I don't think so. Over the years in CO, I saw quite a few of these. They occur when the wind over the mountain tops produce waves.
Granni, hope you don't get any of the violent storms. We desperately need rain. So nice to have you drop in to welcome Willow. Hope you get a chance to post more today.
Sun, sounds as though you scored big at CVS and at the plant sale. The only thing I couldn't find at Publix is distilled water that I want to use from now on for my new coffee maker. Glad you were able to find so many things.
Spring, thanks for your prayers. Both of these people are really sick so your prayers are much appreciated. I pray for them and GB and her DH throughout the day. So much misery in the world right now. Even back when my kids were in HS, sneakers were a big deal. I remember the B&W checked Vanns DD had. The most expensive ones now are endorsed by basketball players. Big food giveaways here are running out of food. I heard that Publix is finding a way to get the food from the farmers to the food banks so they stop plowing it under. Publix does a lot of good to help the hungry. Like with Granni and me, I hope you don't get any violent weather. If it were to hail severely here, we would likely need a new roof.
It's starting to feel as though the whole world has shut down. It has but now I'm really feeling it. I know it's necessary until we get this beast under control. We take so much for granted when things are good. I have an eye appt. on the 30th. I'm undecided about whether or not to keep it. I'm going to call the doc's office to see what they are doing to keep from infecting patients. I'll likely need cataract surgery but don't know whether any surgeries are being done or not. I can live with this a while longer if necessary. I'm more concerned about keeping my kidneys going so I don't have to go in to have them blasted at the hospital.
Just heard on the news that the love bugs are back for about a month. They are the ones that copulate in the air and keep doing it until they die. They make a mess on the front grilles of cars and ruin the paint if not removed. Evidently rats are coming out in the open in big cities because there aren't people leaving food around. Things are getting downright Biblical.
Hope all y'all have the best day possible.
Home again, home again...just picked up SV's food. I emptied the last of his dry food into the jar I keep it in in the kitchen and that's my signal that it's time to get another new bag. I went ahead and got a case of his wet food too. Might as well. I checked to make sure no one is hoarding and that there is no scarcity before buying more than we need. A four pound bag of dry food and 24 tiny cans of the wet was almost $70. Still thinking of changing his name to Money Pit. I put a new scratching pad in his track ball toy/scratching pad unit. I showed him it was new. Then, I scratched it and he walked right up and gave his claws a good scratching. Smart little guy.
I called the eye doc and they are taking precautions so I'm keeping my appt. They are wearing masks. It's so beautiful out that it's hard to believe something ugly is lurking so I take care to protect myself and try to enjoy everything that is still as beautiful as ever. Saw two of my favorite neighbors out walking and waved to them. I'm doing laundry and the washer is pinging me that the load is done.
