199


Jack was kidding me about the cat blog...yes I know it was a slow day in blog land but I'm getting close to the 200 blog entry status and I'm hoping that I can find a really fun, interesting, slam bang, noteworthy event to make my 200th blog entry. Well today isn't that day...this is my 199th entry and anything after this will seem more exciting! We have had a wet spring so far. That's because my roof is leaking. I truly believe the weather is directly related to my roof problem. We've had it looked at, worked on, reworked on, and Jack is giving it his best efforts to put off the inevitable...a new roof. We are getting close.It seems to have slowed down in it's leaking process. Plus twice now the tornado siren has gone off. I was hoping that maybe it could dangle it's tail just a bit over our roof...not tons of damage, just enough to let the insurance company pay for the new roof. I'm a baaaad girl aren't I??? I feel safe in stating that because I know Greg our insurance agent doesn't read my blog. Greg if you are reading this..first: I'm only kidding..second: leave a comment. Well, it didn't happen, the tornado thing. (thankfully...I guess) But what has happened is our world looks sooooo green. It's how I picture England or Ireland to look. Yesterday was very drippy, misty and then thunderstormy, tornado creating weather. When I came home from work the yard looked green, green, green. I just had to take a pic and I understand it's better to take a shot in overcast light anyway. The red chairs looked even more red and the rain washed away the bird poop on the red chairs so that makes this 199 blog entry really worth the effort. Plus I have a day off today. That's really note worthy! So on to finding something really wonderful to blog about. It may be awhile before I'm back.

The pic has great bright colors love it. I had roofing problems and the insurance co. paid for the roof-hail damage. Unfortunatly wouldn't pa for a gigantic oak to be taken down that was hit by lightening bill was $4,000. Do you have a tree that will hit your house?

To answer your question Rose..yes I do have a tree that could potentially hit the house. It's the one where the red chairs sit. Yikes! Sure hope it doesn't happen!
