Friday roundup

What a nice, relaxing day it's been! I've been doing the usual things like laundry, and Ken got our flights and rental car booked for our upcoming trip to Florida. I talked to my Dad today (Mom was washing her hair, but got on the phone later to tell us that they'd bring us dinner Sunday evening when returning home from my sister's--what a nice treat!) and they're doing well. The pork roast has been cooking all day in the crock pot, and it smells yummy. (I'll be roasting some asparagus, too.) We've watched some great NCAA games, including a couple of upsets, the latest one the University of Connecticut getting upset by the University of San Diego (I wrote about one of their players recently, Rob Jones, the grandson of cult leader Jim Jones). This is so much fun to watch!

It stopped snowing for a while, but it's started again. ARGH. I'm hoping that it will end soon, and Ken is hoping even harder, because if we get a bunch more, he'll be taking me to work in the morning!

The big news in our town tonight is that Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will be visiting us on Dyngus Day (Easter Monday). We won't be going to see them, but then we both have to work that day. (Not that we would if we were off that day.) I'm kind of disappointed that the "big guns" aren't coming for Dyngus Day, but there are still several weeks to go before our primary on May 6, so we may see a visit yet. Other big political news is that Bill Richardson has endorsed Barack Obama. I'm wondering if a Barack-Richardson ticket might be the ticket. Hmm!

I'd be remiss if I didn't include this cartoon, one that I put up on my locker at work every year. Everyone seems to get a kick out of it. Happy Easter!

That's my favorite toon as well. I find it refreshing to be able to laugh about my deafness from time to time. I told Doc next year this is going out to all our friends on cards for the holiday. (Hugs) Indigo

Glad you like it, Indigo! It's a big hit at work, too....
