Wednesday emotions

Today I decided to lay down for a while following gutter cleaning. I turned on the TV. "The View" was on. I haven't watched the show for a very long time. In fact, I think Elizabeth was pregnant when I quit watching daytime TV, and I was shocked to find she still is!!! Anyway, through most of it I worked a Sudoku puzzle and wasn't really paying attention. Suddenly the cast of "Hair" came on. Darned if I didn't start crying. What was THAT all about!?! Aw, 'twas a kinder and gentler time (not really). I sang "Age of Aquarius" as tears ran down my cheeks. When "Let the Sunshine In" started up the dogs actually exited the room. I could almost hear them murmuring to each other as they left, looking over their shoulders. You must admit; I am the Queen if I can even embarrass the dogs! How nice that they don't have thumbs; they would be texting all their friends and former kennel mates and stand ready to call those men in the white coats. And no, S2, I did not give in to the pain; I am still narcotic free. Can you imagine how bad it would have been...oh my.

The news came on next. Pictures of Louisville (that's Loo-a-vull for you folks that have yet to get to the area and lavish in the southern charm and manners. Y'all might want to get it on your Bucket Lists; you will not regret it) and Churchill Downs flooded. Amazing. A year ago they were in drought conditions. 'Tis a time of extremes, it seems. I wonder how the World Equestrian Games venues are fairing. They are being held in the Lexington area, at or near the Horse Park that S2 and I visited.

So, I got up, went out, and brought the lawn mower closer. I have heard that the rain is coming in this weekend. The only place where grass still grows is where the pool dumps to waste. I quickly mowed there and then went on in to the field. Windy tends to poo in the same few places. Grass grows around those areas and makes it hard to scoop. Done. So the list is being whittled down. Unfortunately, as always happens, more things to do. I realized how badly the roof needs to be swept of dead moss. I purposely (again not really) left the bucket up there so I would be forced to get up and do it before the weather system hits. I came in for some ibuprofen and Diet Coke. My two drugs of choice. Both have now kicked in, so I am back out.

Song of the day?

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius! Aquarius!
-the Fifth Dimension
