Random 5 Friday is at hand. If you would like to join in then please our host, Nancy at A Rural Journal to see how it's done!
- I read the local paper every single day and the most interesting section for me are the obits. Not that I'm morbid but I read to make sure I DON'T know anyone listed. I'm also struck by the fear that I will someday grace these lists of the dearly departed and as time passes the time gets nearer and nearer. The ages of a lot of them are at least 58 -70 years old and I realize that I will soon be 58! EGADS!!!
- Insurance, we all have some sort of insurance don't we. We have life insurance, health insurance, auto insurance, fire and casuality insurance, liability insurance, worker's compensation insurance, general liability insurance...oh I could go on forever. We met with our "insurance" guy yesterday for the business insurance and I am struck by the absurdity of just having to have insurance. Really it is for the "What If" in your life, be it home or in business. Frankly, we have had a couple of instances in our business to use the "What If" factor in insurance. I think the only one benefiting in the industry are the insurance companies on our "What If" fear.
- The wind lately blowing around is just about to drive me crazy. I am hoping it is helping to blow away this stupid never-ending winter that just keeps hanging on. It is almost April and we are still having below freezing temperatures! Enough already. My hammock is calling my name please.
- This random stuff is kind of hard. When I think of something that is random enough to write about I'm usually in my car with no paper or pen and no place to write it down.
- Anyone want some zebra finches. About 3 years ago a friend called me, since she knew I already had birds, to ask if I wanted some zebra finches. The story was that a lady friend of hers daughters had given her 4 zebra finches for Mother's Day and she absolutely, under no uncertain terms, HATED them and was going to let them out the front door. Well, for one thing the little guys are African and not meant for Oklahoma, maybe the summer but not the winter. Especially the winter we've had here. I fell for the story and took the little fluttery things in and quickly discovered that there were two males and two females. Thank goodness I had lots of cages to separate them. I love birds but I'm really ready to find them some new homes. I'm tired of taking care of them but will continue because that is what I signed on for but I really would like to find them another home. Have to get hard at work at that be it the zoo or Craig's List or maybe an assisted living center!
