As some of you may know, I have another blog. It was scheduled to disappear in February so I started this blog. As it turned out, nothing has happened with the old Yahoo blog.
In any event , I wrote the words below there this morning. I think the observations are worth writing here, too.
Watching Paint Dry
Ever hear the expression, "watching paint dry?" That was how we spent most of our weekend, literally and figuratively.
We painted the picket fence and the porch floor and did some other chores around the house. Our only foray out was to a family party in another part of the state. We couldn't help but notice there was very little traffic on the roads. Our guess is that with gasoline rising ten cents in one day, many people chose not to travel. It rose from$4.19 to $4.29 overnight. Near the NY border it was $4.69. Watching paint dry will become a national past time, I think.
In some sort of energy and cost saving effort, flyovers by jets were replaced by flyovers with Chinook helicopters. Two, not one, rattled the windows here. I had no idea they were so economical to operate.
In any event, it is raining today and the paint is dry and the week awaits.
Enjoy your day.
