I don't believe it!

I get online tonight and the first thing on my Microsoft feed is the news that the country’s oldest circus is shutting down operations.  I know I have linked to but it was everywhere!  My earliest memories are of seeing news reports of the circus coming to town and doing their march down to the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum.  I am sure i have seen it over the years.

I remember even seeing  what I thought was their winter home down in Florida back in 1977.    According to Wikipedia the Circus Opened Circus World in a nearby Town Haines City Florida in 1973.   MY friends and I were on shuttle bus from our hotel to Disney World and we drove by the place.  I distinctly remember watching the roller coaster.  It was supposed to be the oldest wooden coaster in the country.   Very Sad indeed.

I had a great time at Bingo today.  I got there early and my two HS girls came and helped out.  I called a few of the games and then had them do it for voice was starting to go a little too.  There were 15 residents and some my regs were not there.  We finished by 3 and I let Marnie know that I wouldn’t be doing bingo on February 12th.  

After Bingo I headed to Petco and got the kitties their food.  It was Vet day and there were a number of people with their dogs.  I saw a mother and son Whippet, a pit bull and black bijon frise’ .  Once I was done I headed home.

When I came home the kitties were still up on the bed sleeping.  This allowed me to get a grocery list made that I will order for Tuesday and get the garbage out.  They eventually came down when I decided to have dinner.  I also refilled their kibble and water.  They ha

I had a late dinner because I wasn’t really feeling great.  I had a doughnut from D&D and a extra Large flavored coffee and I just didn’t feel great as Bingo ended.  I was able to have sesame chicken and popcorn and tea.  I didn’t have the same problems as this morning.

I heard from Livia today she will be here tomorrow to clean the house.  I am really relieved because I am having the district meeting here on Thursday.  I want the house to look nice.  I have to get a specific lightbulb for a one of the lights.    I also need to think about what to have as refreshments.  I know my friend sharon will bringing something.

Well Victoria is on PBS and I want to see this.  I was watching the end of Sherlock and it was weird.  I didn’t quite understand it.  THis program should be interesting.  I saw promos for it last autumn.

Have a great night..

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
