Bruce Of The Day ~ Happy Friday ~

Happy Friday people.
I don't know about the rest of you , but today here in Aunty Pol's world, today has only been about three days long.
Enough !
Enough I say !
I want to go home and find the shorts , tee shirt and the adult beverage in the plastic patio glass and go veg on the patio for a bit,
Except it's been 90 degrees every day this week.
Sister says that they had frost up in the great Paloose this morning and a temperature of 28 degrees.
If I didn't love her so much ( Happy Mothers Day to you and your Mom) , I would shoot her.
Twenty Eight Degrees.
Kill me now.
We've already had to start the almost daily watering of the Hydrangeas in the front bed....sigh.
Mindful of the fact that the monthly water bill is insane makes me very careful. And you CAN'T
tell me that the rates did not go up after KATRINA , RITA and IKE.
Not buying it.
Up until last year the average bill for garbage pick up and water was $48.00. Now before you all freak..we are in a MUD district and thus traditionally higher.
And I know SU is gonna read not say a word dear..I'm the one paying this bill.
Anyhoo....On or about the first of April, I used to send a monthly payment of $60.00 , so that when August rolled around with the huge bills, they wouldn't seem all THAT bad.
I know that doesn't make sense to anyone but me and that's want pay the bill.
'Nuff Said.
Sometime after Katrina , I noticed the bill had gone up a but until it averaged out at about $65.00 per month.
Even in winter , when there was no yard, plants or flowers to water.
Even when we had friggan snow that killed off all of our gardens.
I am NOT using any more fact we are more careful now than ever.
I guess I'm gonna have to start bumping it up $15.00 to $20.00 per month to try to reduce envelope opening trauma .
No great plans for MOI for the weekend.
Hisself has a full dance card.
Tomorrow is the annual ART CAR parade which he loves . He always tries to get some of his newer co-workers or those who haven't been before to meet him...yeah I know ...Pied Piper Syndrome. I won't be amongst the crew as I REALLY burn easily even with sun screen . Aside from that , I really do not like crowds so he's free to frolic. Then he will be going to his Mom's for Mothers Day...and no...I didn't have to nag him...his own idea...thank you dear.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Mothers Day if that is a holiday that you celebrate. I really don't celebrate it . My mother passed in 1981 , but I did send the Step Mama a cute cactus dish with a variety in it. As I recall, she had some cactus already in the bay window in the kitchen and since she is out and about quite a bit , no maintenance is the way to go.

Gad, I've missed ya, woman! I would choose a particularly prolific week to get behind in my reading, so I'm not gonna try to comment on everything or I'll never catch up!!

Suffice it to say, have a great weekend, since you'll be free to hog the patio. ;-) I'm about to step out on the front veranda and enjoy a lovely adult beverage and a book, myself!
