We have been asking for rain and this is the week to be getting it.
We have been asking for rain and this is the week to be getting it. The cold weather wasn't needed but it came with it. Green is good and if it was a few degrees colder it would have been white which would have been no fun. In a few days it will be May and that means flowers and warm temperatures, or so we hope.

I spent Sunday afternoon putting a TV on the wall in our bedroom. We have had one there but it was small and old. Yes, it was color. This one was to be on the wall so there was a lot of measuring to have it right. The swivel bracket allowed it to turn or tilt forward. Two lag bolts were screwed into the wall stud. Furniture had been moved for easy access and now it was time put it back. Have you ever noticed how difficult that is? There is no sliding it back. You first have to dust it, wipe it and vacuum it. Then the floor and the rest of the room has to be done. It took all afternoon and some of the evening. A simple TV installation turned into spring cleaning. That evening at bed time, the TV remained off and we each opened our books and read before going to sleep.

“How long have you been working here?” one employee asked to another.

“Ever since the boss threatened to fire me.”

Have a good week.
