A Woodle is a What + a Poodle mix.... I will have to look it up after I post here.
No more goat news, sorry! I guess I could go down in back of the neighbor's house to take a look at them, but I'd want to do so when almost nobody is at home over there. / Last night there was an ambulance and the full array of First Responder and Fire Trucks over there. We thought that it certainly must be the old (well he's MY age but looks WAY older) fat guy who needed the ambulance. But it was the youngest step-grandson's girlfriend. She fainted and when she came to, her heart was 'fluttering' at a really rapid rate. Don't know how that all came about OR how it turned out, but I figure that over the course of a day or two, hubby will get the low-down from someone over there.
The neighbors beside us came over and weeded out the front of the shrub and flower bed and planted a whole bunch of pansies of various sizes and colors. Now, it USED TO BE a spot where Ozzie took his first morning pee; he doesn't understand why I carry or tug him past there, because he thinks it is THE perfect place to go... Anyway they said they had over-purchased a bunch of flats and had nowhere to plant the extras. I told hubby it's kinda nice having younger neighbors doing things for us. Of course, we still feel like we are the 'younger' folks, but, nope, we can THINK that in our minds, but our bodies tell a different story. I gotta say I am still kind of pissed off that I am not strong enough, nor is it wise for me, to move furniture! Dammit! ( and a big "OOOOH WELL!") To everything there is a season and a reason. Ratz! Phooey!
Nannie's sleeping and sleeping and sleeping in her recliner right now. Nice to have such peace and quiet down here in the den. I know her brain condition limits her abilities to converse, but repetitive, inane comments about the weather and how the yard looks are sooooooo tedious. And when the TV is on, we get a running commentary of how people LOOK. The one that makes me roll my eyes and smh is when she says about certain ballplayers with long hair..."If he knew how that looked, he wouldn't wear it that way." (!!!!!!) Uh, sure, the guy lives in himself 24/7/365 and he's NOT AWARE of how his hair looks? And should he, mid-game, hop down to the locker room and have it shaved off or styled differently? And it affects his playing of the game HOW? YIKES!
Oh Tweety, it makes me stompin', snortin' MAD about how your employer wrings you dry all the time! Do they ever get on you about having to stay overtime every shift to get any charting done? They did get on me about that at my last facility job. I still think the other nurses knew some short-cuts about how to get around doing certain things, because inevitably while I was trying to finish med passing in time to do narc counts and turn the medcart over to the next shift, the other nurses had already completed EVERYTHING and were sitting at the nurse's station w/ their purses, ready to jump and run after giving a brief report. I smelled a rat, but I never could find out where it was. Ppfffttt!
Joe....what is a vacation? Hope to find out myself, one of these daze/days. Have a good time! In m retirement I have become what I never was in my working days...a household drudge.
Excuse me while I go switch laundry loads...
Egads. Nannie just woke up to watch me fold clothes. I told her I was going to start charging her 50 cents a load to watch me pre-treat, and 50 cents per load to watch me fold. She says she has never seen anyone pre-treat and fold laundry like I do, and where did I learn how? My gosh! I have done laundry for so many of my private duty cases, and each person has their own preference for how things are folded, so I guess I just picked and chose what I preferred from all of those experiences. Good Grief!
Ted, we have Spring in full bloom here. In another month, if not sooner, it will be like summertime. GAH. 80's and 90's and humid. It can get to feeling pretty smothering along about August. Let's not think about that though. I am thankful that two months after we moved here, Nannie had to have a brand new heating/cooling system put in, so we can survive the suffocating heat. Whew!
dianah, amoLu, herring, j22, Joe, Tweety, Ted, and All the Rest (here on Gilligan's Island) please have a good day and an even better week.
