Daffy Dils

This morning I read that Sarah P is backing Newt but is leaving the door open......she may throw her own hat in the GOP ring.....if she's pressed to do so.  


If our nation can't find a GOP lineup with more class than Mitt, Newt, Rick, and her ............blah, blah, blah.

Heaven knows I could write a blog that would blow up the Internet if I pursued our political horse pucky.  What's that old saying......if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

Sure feels like spring where I live.  Yesterday's temperatures were pushing 70 degrees.  We took a drive that took us to the Mighty Mississippi that was flowing with white caps.  It reminded me of the time years ago when we were Up North at a lake, took one of the resort boats out fishing, and the wind came up to the point that the resort owners were standing on the sandy beach waiting for us to come in.  Being out on the water is great fun, but not when the wind is blowing, the boat is bucking the waves, and water is splashing in the boat.

We stopped to visit our niece on our way home from the river, and her tulips are out of the ground about an inch.  I'm anxious to see the daffodils, tulips, and itty-bitty hyacinths we planted last year.  Hubby loves daffodils.  In fact, he brought some silk ones up from storage and put them in our front window.

Where do the days go.  Already it's Wednesday again.  We've accumulated a list of errands that need tending, so we'll be heading out of here pretty soon.  Seems there's always a grocery list, supplies we need from Wal-Mart, and meds to pick up at the pharmacy.  I can be pretty cagey when it comes to running errands.  If we go in the morning, chances are way good we'll grab a bite to eat out.

That brings back a memory.  Daddy used to talk about how times changed from when he was a little boy.  One time he said:  "When I was a kid, everybody ate their meals inside and went to the bathroom outside.  Nowadays, people are eating their meals outside and going to the bathroom inside."

Have a dilly of a day!
