Thankful Thursday

Like John Fogerty sings in the Song, "Looking Out My Front Door...." Grateful we lost some internet and phone service on and off but no major power outage. Thankful for my phamily who made it home safely from their work destinations. Visit Thankful Thursday and give Brian a high five for hosting.
My poor lil car, covered in snow. See the tree behind it? Excel Energy is coming out Friday to trim that branch touching their 220 powerline. Than we have to chop that tree down. It was horrible when it was still young and we never got around to cutting it down. The hubby had this cool electric saw, a reciprocating saw. That little dynamo can cut through a tree log like butter!
That tree behind our garage is not in your view but it exactly like the one you see by our garage. Excel is going to trim it too on the backside since it is toughing their 720 powerline. Chop, chop, these trees are dirty and messy and even birds shy away from them because they are disgusting. Thankful to work on cutting them down slowly but surely. Trees belong in a forest unless your Bill Gates or Warren Buffet. It costs a lot of cash to remove them. The only tree we had in the yard, a crabapple tree was beautiful when it bloomed in the Springtime. It was in the front yard and due to the city telling us we were responsible for the main line problem, $20,000 later and one tree removal, the bozo who removed it, worked for the plumbing service who did the main line work but left a huge stump in the front yard.
I have always loved this poem about trees by Joyce Kilmer. But two years ago this allergy magnet cottonwood in our front yard had to go too. The cost is ridiculous for fifty plus year old trees. Three neighbors had to remove the cottonwoods due to disease.  When I had allergy testing several years ago, you guessed it, I was allergic to trees! That is why we can not have a real CHRISTmas tree. But grateful to have a nice artificial one.
HaHaHa! Maxine never ceases to make me laugh out loud. Some cities aloud nudity while gardening. since I was attacked by a swarm of nasty devil worshipping wasps last summer, nudity would not be my gardening choice. HaHaHa.
Lulu is tuckered out. She is a one time momma. It was a tough thing for her and she came through like a tough little cookie. She delivered her daughter lying next to her at 4:46 in the afternoon on Tuesday . She napped and cared for the little girl until 10:16 when Rebekah announced she delivered her son like a princess. They are getting along beautifully although the babies occasionally slip away and one of us in there to tuck them back into their momma's care.

Allora at LuLaRoe Allora and Nancy has a new Dress Up Challenge. Unfortunately I still can not post to FaceBook so here I am in my cool and buttery soft  leggings with a solid black Lynnae and a soft and comfy golden Sarah. FB is a real butt. all these so called genius types and they have the worst technical challenges daily. My hubby works for a Fortune 500 law firm. This would not happen where he works. They have a back up plan to keep the office running like a fine tuned machine.
Lulu and her girl. What a sweet momma she is. She jumped right into her new role. God made these precious babies so smart and sassy and sweet.

Taco Tuesday! A little humor to brighten your day.

HaHaHa! How about a nacho cheese fountain? Is this on your bucket list?
I love this! It is Truth for me.
Love my Jesus. Love being under His care.
Thankful for Thursday. Make an act of kindness today.

Sorry, but I have to disagree about the trees. I think they are beautiful. As for belonging in the forest, they were in the forest before man came along and chopped them all down to build streets and buildings and houses and stores, etc. Without these trees, we would not be able to survive.

As for the power lines, I think the lines should all be put underground so that they will not be destroyed by storms and cause power outages. Plus, they get in the way of our beautiful trees.

The dogs are beautiful, and those puppies are so precious. Enjoy them and be sure to have them spayed and neutered when they are old enough.

I hope the snow is done for the season by the time I get home from vacation. I am so ready for Spring. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Pretty lady in yellow! (That's one of my favorite colors!) Lulu's babies are soooo cute! Have they names, yet? I'd be interested in learning how y'all decide on your furbabies names. So glad everyone got through that horrible storm in one piece!

I love Maxine. She's so snarky. That's what makes her so special.

You look fabulous.

Lulu is such a trooper and now she has two little ones to look after for a bit.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Anne. Big hug. ♥
