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 snopes.com 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 awhile..my 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..

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
