We are having a lovely late winter with warm weather, warmer than Florida. Tomorrow is supposed to be the first day of spring.
The days roll by and my life is sure laid back with not much that has to be done on time. It seems now that there is always something that needs fixing or replaced due to old age. One smoke and carbon dioxide alarm detector started taking . Now try and listen to that off and on 24/7. Finally my brother-in-law found where they had hidden the battery in it and when he replaced that all was quiet. Imagine telling someone that your smoke detector talked !!
A rat had chewed though the back wall of a cupboard under the sink and has had a good time destroying my dishwasher. As he did his chewing while we were out or asleep at night we didn't notice anything. When I used the washer , after the dishes were done there would be water on the floor. When Doug, son-in-law, pulled the washer out there was a mess behind it plus the varmit had chewed most of the insulation off as well as chewed the plastic frame and a hole in the water pipe. It was so subtle about it we didn't notice. A large trap caught the intruder. A new dishwasher was in order and that has been installed . Now the dryer is making a loud and funny noise when drying the clothes so that will need looking at. I am thankful that the computer is working perfectly. Thanks Sandy. The TV is dong its job if there weren't so may and long ads.
I played bridge yesterday and one woman was from Victoria, B.C. She remarked that she likes to watch public broadcasting but there are so many ads as compared with what she watched in Victoria. Last night Tony Bennet, jd lang, Elton John and others had a musical program and right in the middle of one of their songs along ad came on asking for more money. It does give one time to finish a job you might have stopped to listen to the programme There must be another way.
The Canada geese are flying and honking as they fly north or wherever they go for the summer . Soon the ducks will be around and I can watch them from my deck. Then the new wee ones will be about and look like yellow fluff floating on the water.
Do wish there was some happy news in the paper but then that kind of news never sells. The uglier, raunchier, destroying news apparently is what the public wants to read so says the media. The media can destroy anyone and methinks often does.
Hope all have a great day and enjoy it to uits fullest.
