Well, I was going to have a blog free day, but I find myself kind of bored just taking my hour off and just watch my soap. I am a multi-tasker, and just sitting doing nothing for an hour is really not a joy for me. I have to busy doing something. It about killed me in the hospital to have all those hours and hours ahead of me every time I woke up. Didn't matter if it was 3am and 8am, it was still very looooonnnnnnggggg days. That's when I became a hall walker, better than a street-walker, I would walk and walk, but every few minutes would check on hubby, and with the fluid pills I think I was introduced to every BR in that whole place, except the cancer unit, and the nursery. Stayed clear of those.
One of our neighbors, a mother, dad and 3 children lost their house yesterday to a fire. It smoother & burnt several hours before it was turned in, as no one was home, so it is a total lose. They are suspecting a lightning strike. They only live about 3 miles from us, but I really didn't know them well, knew them enough to say Hi went I saw them, but that is about it. They are having a clothing drive for them and I am sure they will get a lot of help in that department. As their parents are both from our town, and also the grand-parents. So they are well known. Hopefully they can find a new place to live. They are so lucky that no one was home. The husband is a OTR truck driver and he won't even get home until tomorrow so she and the kids are on there own. What does a family do when they have lost everything they own, I just can't imagine it.
I think I mentioned the other day about having to move the mother cat and her kittens cause she was not to smart about her placement and was getting flooded when it rained the other day. Well, as soon as it quite raining she moved them again, this time around the corner from the back door, but still going to get drenched if it rains. She keeps hiding them under my hostas and I have taken a couple of pictures but it is just to dark. Well, yesterday I was cuddling those little babies, and yes the ointment cleared up the eyes in 3 days, and Merlin came over so I showed Merlin the baby, and sit it on the bench and it moved and it scared Merlin, his eyes got really really big and he high-tailed it over to where Duke was. Now here was a little kitten that still fits in the palm of my hand and Merlin at 150# is scared to death of it, and every time I walk over to where they are, he departs my presents. Such a chicken.
Well, you all take care and have a GET day. Linda
