Grand news – My 8-year-old granddaughter got her braces taken off. She may need some retainer-like device for a while in her early teens but all the discomfort and extra care is over. It’s wonderful that kids can get their teeth corrected early. When I was young the only kids who had braces had really bad teeth, really bad.
Say what? – Every once in a while the beloved husband asks me a cat question. Usually it’s rhetorical but sometimes there’s an answer. We have two doors next to each other. One goes to the garage (where the cats never go) and the other goes to a screened in porch (where they love to go). Both have the same metal door. He wants to know how they can tell the difference. If he opens the garage door to retrieve the newspaper, there’s no reaction. If he opens the porch door, there is a stampede. Even our hearing-impaired old cat can tell the difference. I have no answer.
Another sign that summer is over – I pulled the last of my zinnias out this week. We haven’t had frost yet but soon. I don’t like to work outside when the weather is cold. Awning is down and porch furniture is covered. 😦
Just the comics please – The news has been so bad and sad lately that I’ve taken to skimming the front section of the paper. You can’t skim the news on TV. Even if you avoid the news programs completely, they break into shows to update or run that little footer across the bottom. We watched a news helicopter filming the medical vehicle driving one of the nurses suspected of Ebola to the hospital facility. Really? It was OJ Simpson all over again.
All’s well that ends well – I drove my friend to her colonoscopy this week. When I picked her she said she wasn’t doing it again — not unless there is a medical reason. (Just for the record hemorrhoids are not a good reason!) It’s not so much the procedure itself although my last one left me sore for a week. It’s the clean out especially as you get older. That can upset your system and cause you to thoroughly house clean your bathroom. Enough said.
How was your week?
