It is raining more than cats & dogs today. Plus the wind is blowing. I braved the crowds and went grocery shopping....the good old Fred Meyer store near my house was packed. And everyone was in a cranky mood, banging into other people's carts, there were screaming kids and yelling mothers. Oh what a mess! It actually took me almost 2 hours to navigate thru the newly remodeled store to find everything on my list. Of course when they remodeled they moved everything around. WHY DO THEY DO THAT ? But now I'm home with a little chuck roast in the crock pot for dinner later tonight. On days like this, I like to turn on all the lights in the house and turn the radio or a CD up loud. It seems to take the gloomy atmosphere away.
I heard on the radio coming home that today is the 127th birthday of that famous American, Will Rogers. He was born November 4, 1879 and died in a plane crash in 1935. The radio announcer said his favorite Will Rogers quote is "What this country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds." I agree...that's a good one.

Well, my break is over. I've got all those bags of groceries sitting around in the kitchen and they need to be put away, so until next time.......Linda
