Furnace was out…1 night without heat but temp was warm 40-45 that night, and we were okay
Gson’s awesome skiing video at Big Sky
Commenting on a lady’s name of “Gloria” and how lovely…she said we don’t see that name often any more….I said that mine was “Jean” and don’t see that one a lot either….she smiled and said, “My middle name is Jean”….fun :)
Talking with a WWII Veteran who is 92….looks more like 72!! A fun guy…he’ll be around for a long time:)
Raking the yard of pine needles and pine cones…great to have it finished
Picture of the Orchid, Flower of the Holy Spirit, amazing!
GPa has me laughing for several days…he decided to do a “MacGyver” and fix some aluminum foil as an “antenna” on the top of his ear phones, to eliminate the static…it worked! He looks like an alien from outer space :)
Rare (thank goodness) excitement in our neighborhood: Police chased a man and woman in their car from downtown and into our area where they abandoned the car…Wow, police with rifles and a canine walking and driving past our home…thought this only happened in the “big cities”… we locked our doors and brought Cookie inside (she’d let us know if anyone was there but, of course, would happily let them in :) …scary when it’s your own neighborhood….the “druggies” got away on foot but they’ll catch them since they know who they are…first time that’s ever happened to us and hopefully it won’t again.
Watching Luann’s cat, YoYo, play…he is big and fluffy and sooo cute…we love him…when he and Cookie meet up in the yard, they accept each other as they are and go on their independent ways.
…first time in years that St. Patrick’s Dayis on a Friday and a weekend…
…preparing for crowds of revelers, even transferring inmates from the jail to make room for people having too much “fun” LOL
Irish population in Butte is (per capita) more than Boston! They say it’s true :)
Went to the VA this morning for GPa’s eye doc follow up…
…while we were there a man in the waiting room was totally unresponsive to a nurse and soon all of the docs from ER ran to help him and half a dozen medical people came to his rescue and took him to the ER. Hope he is okay. Prayed for him.
Loving the beautiful tulips Cathy gave me…interesting colors of pale peach, orange, pink. GPa said we can plant the bulbs.
Happy that my sister is enjoying her new wall tv :)
