I found this picture when I was looking for something else in my vast library of pictures from years gone by. Again I was amused by this little guy, who looks like he's telling us to get lost, or maybe turn around before it's too late. Obviously it was raining then, too. I didn't expect so much rain when I walked to the bus this morning; it looked like it should be intermittent and dry up quickly. But it didn't, and I think it only now it has stopped for the day.
It looks like it will be turning cold soon, with lots of frigid wind coming from the Canadian Frazer Gap, which always means unpleasant conditions even if the sun is shining. Oh well, it could be much worse: I could be living in some place where we are much colder and windier, or even somewhere that doesn't have nice warm houses to live in. I should count my blessings and be grateful for the rain, which always brings lovely spring flowers. Eventually.
The news has been horrific: I am afraid to turn on the TV and see if there has been yet another mass shooting somewhere in the country. Only three weeks in, and we have been averaging 12 or 13 a day. I think I will spend my time catching up on watching all the movies I've missed lately, now that the Oscar nominations are out. I've seen a few of them and truly enjoyed "The Banshees of Inisherin." At least half of the nominations are new to me, so it will be fun and a good diversion to check them out. Most can be seen online if I'm willing to pay a few bucks, which I would be doing if I went to the cinema anyway. How about you? What do you do to change the subject from the current world situation? I'm always looking for new ways to cope.
