Spending a lot of my time watching old TV shows. Finished all of Columbo. I believe he's one of my favorites. He was a good looking fellow when he was younger. I watched an episode of Decoy from 1958 that had Peter Falk in it. He really had a long run, didn't he? Whew, over 40 years.
Kind of off subject, yet not - No One can convince me that the big 'Silver Screen' or television doesn't influence people. Nearly every vice has been glamorized at one time or another. Drinking, smoking, doing drugs, whoring, etc. I believe the violence we see today is the offspring of all the screens in our lives. Just my personal opinion, don't chew my head off. Some people would be bad, no matter what, but ...
Post nasal drip.
Post means after, right?
Nasal means nose, right?
After the nose.
The words tell me,
I have a runny nose,
Not crap in my throat.
Anti Nasal Drip
Would be my choice ...
Stupid things I think about when I should be going to sleep at night. I am getting to be an old lady. Oh well.
Sigh ... I had an odd beginning to my day. I put Jill out for her duties and I spotted a trio of deer across the road. I haven't seen any in quite some time and it was a pleasure to watch them munching on the early spring grasses. I ran (you know I really didn't, it's just a figure of speech, haha) to get my camera. The results are on my header. I know I said a trio, but they didn't stick together enough for a decent shot.
The deer didn't pay any attention to Jill's threats, so I sat down in the doorway to watch them for a while. When they finally moved on, I realized that I was stuck on the floor. I guess I am ready for one of those call buttons. I began to crawl to my chair (about 10') when my knees began screaming. I was next to my little roll-top and decided to rest for a bit to revisit the junk on the lower shelves of the desk.
I haven't looked at that old stuff for ages. There is quite a stash of old silver plate that I bought to make rings and other crafts until I found out I didn't have any strength in my hands. So, there they all sit. Useless. Mostly beautiful patterns, but useless ... There are some pieces in the box that someone actually tried to scrape off the silver. Senseless waste of time. By the time I packed it all up again, crawled to my chair, and made it back to my desk - the clock said 11:15! My whole morning was shot. Time does fly by, doesn't it? You can kinda see why I don't get anything done and my blogging has gotten so sketchy. Guess it's just these old bones attached to an old slow butt ...
I really dislike the time changes. Why don't they just go to half past and leave it alone?
Very foggy here this morning. I've been awake, watching it begin at the bottom of the hill, until it engulfed the house. I think it should lift pretty soon.
The peaches are blooming, I believe this is way early. The wood have that early spring haze about them. My allergies are already bothering me.
DH needs to check the chimney, we had a cowbird come in last week. I heard it and looked at Jill. Wish I had the camera ready, she had such a WTH look on her face! J came and rescued the poor thing, it was hitting one window and then another for a couple of hours.
I woke up early. Had a story running through my head. Even though I don't write anymore, I still do story outlines in my head ...
DH almost through 'shut down' at work. He will soon be looking for another job. There are times when I wish he had a regular job with set days and hours.
There really isn't anything going on. I did buy McMillan and Wife, The Equalizer, and the complete set of Columbo. That should do me for a while.
I ordered The Rockford Files DVD series from Amazon. Seems it was a bad time. It was supposed to come Wednesday, but as you know, everything road wise had come to a standstill. I got a message, it was going to come Thursday. I also ordered a couple other things. They were supposed to come Wednesday, but due to unforeseen circumstances (they shipped form Chattanooga to Nashville and said oops and returned them to Chattanooga), they were supposed to arrive on Thursday from Nashville. Doh!
Thursday - came and went. 'Due to weather or natural disaster' my stuff would arrive on Friday before 8:00 p.m. Well, Friday at 7:26 p.m., the packages came, but DH neglected to let me know. So, there I was at Midnight watching my first (in a very long time) Rockford File. Ah, the memories!
The phone rang, played that irritating tune through my brain fog. DH wanted to know what the weather was doing. Through the blur, told him what I saw. Snow on the road ... That was 3 hours ago. I thought he would come home, and at the same time I wondered why he even went in. He didn't. I have no idea what the weather is where he is. Well, it was snowing and hasn't stopped yet, now the yard is all white and it just keeps coming. There is NO traffic on the road. Sigh ... It is real pretty, I can say that for sure.
My son helped me with the apps for some games on the tablet. I was hoping to help with my words and cognition. These puzzles are pretty darn hard. I figured I would have to play with the letters - I am out of 'hints'. I'm sure the words are there, but they aren't jumping out and biting me. Ha Ha. Losing words has become a scary proposition and it's getting worse.
I don't remember why Jill was so mad at me yesterday, but it's the first time she has turned her back on me. (I think)
I believe she is trying to smile at me. Silly girl!
Our son outdid himself again. We are going to have to get a large desk or cabinet for all the stuff! (Or add on a room just for game play) I hope this means he plans on moving closer to us!
This was only the beginning. There is a PS4, extra controllers, a steering wheel, and I don't know what all. Ever do VR? It is a trip! All of a sudden I had a shark coming right at me! Played a shoot 'em up game and I died, of course. Flying a plane is not simple, haha. You get the gist. I think we are his spoiled children ...
Oh, there was still the chocolates (3 boxes) and other food items, also 3 blueray series. I already watched The Fall. Still have Westworld and Stranger Things. I'm going to pace myself. :-)
DH gave me a pair of gold drop earrings and a silver necklace (which I had him return) I love the earrings, thought they were too pricey though. I gave him a long cozy robe, pajama pants, and none of your business [wink]. Son asked for and received Nintendo Switch and a game. He says he likes the set-up.
Have a lovely Sunday (or Monday) and stay comfortable!
