President Barack Obama on Friday ordered 4,000 more military troops into Afghanistan, vowing to "disrupt, dismantle and defeat" the terrorist al-Qaida network in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan. (Viet Nam has a new name) (is this another shock and awe)
I get along well with my grandchildren because we have a lot in common. (We all like to take afternoon naps) (We all like to read large type books)
An old wives tale states that if March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb and vise versa.
(This year the first few days of March were warm and sunny) (Guess what's coming tomorrow...yup, that's right, a blizzard)
I am attempting to finish my taxes today. (why so late...this year I have to pay in...again)
I am continuing to clean and downsize the clutter (or as I call it, my collections). I am working on one closet this weekend. Just some of the things I've come across (this is a walk in closet)...a collection of fairy lamps (I love them and I hesitate to get rid of any but I must); a half a dozen outside path lights (purchased three years ago and not put up yet); my first two computers (I never could figure out how to erase the hard drives so I just put them in the closet); A large floor piano (like in that one movie) (it's fun to play but not everyday); yarn, yarn, yarn, yarn, yarn (will I never stop buying yarn) (Oh wait, maybe it's like wire coat hangers and they multiply on their own); Paint by number pictures ( I love them and they have covered four walls already) (oh not ones I've painted, I've never painted any); suitcases (over the years I got a complete set of them from the hospital I worked at...they were gifts) (I haven't gone on a trip in years but I hope to travel Route 66 so I'm keeping them); All the pictures and films I've taken over the years before digital; Movie screen; Projector; New things too...crock pot; games; stitching cards; and believe it or not this is only half of what is in there.
