I told my Mom, aunts and cousin about the conversation Kim and I had and my lack of understanding her analogy of vision loss. All 4 of them thought the same thing I did. How does her brain know it is 9:00. Blonde-ness is inherited! By the way, none of us have blonde hair!
Another Bird Story
The hummingbirds are coming in pairs now. They survived the snap frost last week. Within a few weeks, they will be having sword fights over our table on the back porch, trying to keep all others away. One hummingbird really needs to drink 2 cups of sugar water all by himself.
Tony read my post about the nasty toilets in our house. It dawned on him that he was rather tired of our plunger-required toilets. As fate would have it, a plumber came in to his office the same day, and Tony told him about our dilemma. The plumber told him about a toilet that complies with the water conservation laws, but has a wider hole to "allow a football to pass." The plumber's words, not mine! It will be installed in the next few weeks. Yea!
Diet Coke Rules!
It has been three weeks since I started drinking two cups of water before I'm allowed to have a Diet Coke. While I have cut back on the number of Diet Cokes I drink each day, there is another advantage, too. Before, I would get up 3 to 5 times every night to pee, usually only a cap-full, but the urge was enough to wake me up. I noticed earlier this week that I have been sleeping through the night without any bathroom trips by the light of the television.
