~ Clouds ~ Computers ~ National Nurses Day ~

Good 43ยบ, somewhat cloudy, morning. Pressure really started dropping last night but is backing up today.

And then there was this little birdie, one of the sparrows that is making a nest in a birdhouse on the porch, singing and chirping away... as soon as I got him in focus.....

Something funny....
Here are a couple of sites for those of you who are "texting" disabled.....  I know some are, since they asked me what BRB meant on Bin Laden's last FB entry......
Yesterday I mowed, and mowed. Here is most of the area that got a trim....
After I washed the grass out of my hair and off of me I went up to Patty and Cliff's. I set up her new computer and installed their AOL for them. She also got a new printer, similar to mine, but I couldn't get that thing to cooperate. Uninstalled it and reinstalled it, but still got an error message. Maybe when her son is there this weekend, he can figure it out, or she should just call Dell. Grrrr.....
