I have no desire to offend, but it’s so silly how all government offices are closed today for Columbus Day. But since they’re so ingrained in the system, I guess all these made up holidays will never go away. They’re yet another annoyance created by the government in our daily lives like Daylight Savings Time or taxes. Oh well. Ok, I’ll tuck my curmudgeon attitude in the drawer and will have a little fun with it. Here’s Bugs Bunny taking a poke at the holiday. I’ve got yard work to do anyway and will be using my new “toy” to assist in the Fall clean up. I haven’t shared that news about the toy yet, have I? 🙂 Oh, yeah, I didn’t. Well I’ll give y’all a hint: it’s bright blue and it has tuning forks as a symbol on the front. [Such a tease, I know.] The new toy will be my next post.

Yesterday was interesting, meteorically speaking. We had the typical March weather: heavy winds, pouring rain, lightning, and small hail. Hail makes me nervous because it’s usually a prelude to a tornado. Thankfully, I believe none were spotted. Whew. I love the rain, though. It makes outside so clean it almost sparkles. And listen how pretty it sounded afterwards:
This at the branch (creek) that runs the length on one side of our property. The tree frogs were certainly happy, weren’t they?! The dirt road is now so hard packed it’s like a super highway. If the wind would lie down, I would be getting some delta breeze on these knees. lol
Y’all stay safe.
Well, the bursitis in my right hip has returned. With a vengeance. 😦 The cortisone shot didn’t ‘take’. Since I’ve had three of them in a short period of time, I’m not allowed anymore for a long time (too dangerous, so I’m told). So, I was a good girl this time and didn’t just endure the pain. Hoping it would go away. I called the Orthopedic Doctor right away. They’re setting me up for an MRI in preparation for surgery. It may take a week or so to get all the preparatory stuff done before going forward. That’s OK. I’m not unhappy. I know that I’m in good hands. All is right with the world. 🙂 I’m sure this is everyone’s wish for their lives too, but I’m just wishing we could stop spending money on medicine and procedures. But, it could be worse … couldn’t it ….
(LOVE that movie!)
Stay tuned sports fans.

Oh, sure, it’s an advert for Triumph, but it so captures the exhilaration I feel when riding. It’s a tiny bit of what we feel when those two wheels are moving. Just remember: momentum is your friend and keep it between the lines. Enjoy the ride!
