I love radio! – On my morning drive to Starbucks I play the local oldies station. Two guys banter and play music on the morning show. They are of different generations, and I enjoy the conversation as much as the music. They have a contest where they play part of a song and a listener calls in and sings the next line. It’s always hysterical because the caller sings half the song. When you are belting out one of your favorites, who can stop at one line? Sometimes the guys join in. Almost always I join in! Makes me laugh and it’s a great way to start the day.
Seriously? – On our way to a farm stand we passed a huge billboard-sized sign on a front lawn. It was an obscenity aimed at a politician. Something you wouldn’t want your kids to see yet there it was. My knee jerk reaction was to wonder if it was a violent household as there was a lot of anger and no consideration for other people’s children. There are no elections now, so it was out of place. It was a blight on an otherwise scenic area. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but make it classy and appropriate for the audience. Don’t look like a neanderthal. (Maybe that’s a slight to Neanderthals.)
Summer – We are being blessed with a run of great weather! (Hope I didn’t jinx it.) That has been as rare as hen’s teeth. It’s just wonderful to be alive!
After it’s done – The deck was finished over a week ago yet I’m still setting up, finding stuff that belongs out there and cleaning up. It doesn’t matter if the construction is outside, there is always sawdust invading. It swirls around looking for a way to get inside and make me crazy. Maybe after our run of great weather, we will get a nice shower to settle it all down.
Fireworks – Five years ago our state relaxed its fireworks rules. Really bad move. People were revolting as soon as it was passed. Local authorities started banning them in cities and towns and worked to put restrictions around them. People are nuts. They will set off fireworks near neighbors, wooded areas and kids. There are new regulations (finally) that will restrict them. If you want to see fireworks go to the shows put on by communities. They are professional and you won’t see fingers flying in the air! BTW it’s not only dogs that suffer, but it can trigger people with PTSD or children on the autism spectrum. Of my cats, only Sasha is reactive and only when they are nearby. She has reserved a spot under the bed it they get too loud. Stay safe.
So how was your week?
