I have no coherent logical thoughts to offer at this time, just some random events and observations:
It’d been raining for what feels like 40 days and 40 nights now, except for Sunday when the oak trees decided to drop all of their pollen on my car at once. The returning deluge on Monday and Tuesday have not yet washed it clean but I have hopes for Wednesday.
There were actually chickens in the road on Sunday- 6 or 7 hens and a rooster. They did not actually manage to get all the way across the road before they realized the oncoming cars were moving objects and scurried back they way they came. I didn’t stop to ask them why they might want to cross to the other side.
I wish I had had my camera with me and snapped a picture but alas, I was technology free on that occasion. That’s because my cell phone is obsolete and doesn’t take take pictures. My treasured but also obsolete PDA finally died and I am now working with out that safety net. I am contemplating Blackberry but it’s not in my budget and I don’t want to have to figure out how to use it and while snapping pictures would be nice, I don’t want music and screaming [sic] video and all the other bells and whistles. I know how to use my PDA. I would say I know how to use my phone but really, all I know how to do is answer it and make calls. I still don’t know how to add a number to my phone book with one button.
My response to not wanting to deal with this is to walk around reciting the following mantra: I am not a twit, I do not twitter. Which is not intended as a reflection on those that do- I just like the sound of it. Actually, I might just be a twit if I find myself stuck somewhere in desperate need of the numbers I have failed to load into my phone. I suppose that will boot me into the current century.
One more random note: Did you know they sell sympathy cards in packs of 6? I find this a little disturbing.
