HAPPY NEW WEEK!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Diane: I just put a note at the end of last week's thread saying I was starting a new one. Great minds and all that. But seriously, hope you're feeling better. Heather: Thanks for letting us now about Lindy's friend G. As OG says, not unexpected. Still..... Busy day here; I too Ms. D with me when I ran some errands for her Mom. We went into Costco which, if anyone knows, is famous for its free samples. Must say Ms. D's eyes popped out at the various tastes they were handing out - she had 3 samples of mint frozen yogurt in between all the other treats. Fortunately, she's so polite and not at all grabby so got on famously with the ladies handing out the samples. Grandson showed up at 4 this afternoon much to my daughter's and Ms. D's delight (granddaughter and I knew in advance)., then took us all out to dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant. A nice day. :-) Have a good Sunday all.
Usually, I start the week with a picture or a link. I hadn't planned anything this week, but here's an interesting photo I saw on a local wildlife site. This fella is a Hel*bender. Yup, the animal's actual name has a sweary word in it. That endeared him to me right away. They're also called "Snot Otters." LOL!!! (They're slimey.) They grow to be 2 feet long or more, and they live to be 35 years old. They swim in clean, fast-moving water in Indiana and throughout the Midwest and eastern U.S. Their population is declining dramatically, so researchers are studying them. Purdue University has established a captive-rearing program. They raise Hel*benders in a large aquarium so they can be released into the wild to replenish the dwindling numbers.
