Well, I got the lawnmower back from the mowing place yesterday. We'll see how well it works in a few days.

I also tried out the new barber at the local barber shop.

AWESOME job with the haircut yesterday.

May be getting some rain the next few days. Crossing our fingers.

Probably. There are many ways of torturing folks in hospitals! I hope it’s because she was sleeping. :) I’m sure you will reach her soon. And she’ll be happy because of it!

I agree. It is almost 80 here now. Trees are coming out and the honey bees are all over the blooms.

Well...now you are gone. My “comment” went into cyberspace.

Have a great rest of Thursday. ((HUGS)) Friday and the weekend are just around the corner. We are expecting 2-4” of snow today. Yesterday and overnight we got about 6” at my house.
