  1. Oy. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    We’re getting rain on Sunday apparently to melt all the accumulated ice. Immediately the following week, every second house in the neighborhood will have water seeping into the basement. ๐Ÿ™

  2. Spring is also when the weather becomes mild, Beautiful grass and trees signal the welcome of the sun. We have a job, house, pets, food that 90 percent of the world does not have. I am considered in poverity but I think about this when I become dissatisfied. I am 80 and in better health than some of my neighbors. I am better off than people on the street. Blessings for you and yours. :))

  3. Know what you mean about the bills: Council Tax and water bill due, utilities not until May now, phone monthly (dreading next month’s after yesterday’s fiasco) Maggie’s jabs are due, and we have several hospital appointments too. Spring is in the air though, heating has been turned down, and the grass has had its first haircut. Opened the bedroom blinds today to see three blackbirds in the garden (2 males and a female), the Canada geese are pairing up as are the ducks, and next door’s cherry tree was full of blue tits last week!

      1. I had a cheap one from a supermarket which was OK provided you didn’t use the zoom. Instant fuzz. For my 60th, Argos had a special offer on a little Nikon A10 for ยฃ50. It’s on special again at ยฃ60 and has both digital and optical zoom. It’s not bad for the money, thugh sometimes I wish we had something better, especially for night shot or those of the moon. Just a blob in the dark, sigh
