it was true. I am sill laughing or maybe gagging. I was standing at my kitchen sink a few minutes ago just looking out the window. When I look out the window in the kitchen I see the expanse of grass which is between me and the cemetery. A young man was walking his dog and smoking a cigarette. The dog stopped to do what dogs do when they are outside and nature calls. The guy stooped down and picked up the poopiedoop (one of my made up words. I have a whole dictionary full of them), put it in the little blue plastic bag, lifted his hand to his mouth with the bag dangling and removed the cigarette from his mouth. Now is that addiction or what??? I always look down at my feet as I am crossing to go to the cemetery. Perhaps there was nothing in that blue bag after all??
It is another simply gorgeous day here in the heart of Illinois. It is 57 degrees right now and to get into the 80s again today. The first day of Spring is Tuesday. Hey guys, it has been a long time coming but we are finally going to make it.
Folks in this area are all hyped up because the Peoria High School basketball team has done so well in the tournament. I really like basketball because I understand it. I was kind of heartsick when Bruce Weber the University of Illinois basketball coach was fired a few weeks ago. Where I lived before was very close to the U of I and Jim and I followed the basketball team closely. Well. Jim followed the football team closely too but I didn’t, except to buy a t-shirt the last time they went to the Rose Bowl.
I need to get moving along as I have things to be done this morning. I hope you all have a great day. Stay safe and be happy!!
