After All Night Of Rain…

It’s raining so hard the animals are starting to pair up!

Time for some laughs!  I got up a little early and needed some cheering up.  The Kingfish got the ol’ giggler going…he is about to get rich again off Andy by buying life insurance…what could go wrong here? 

It is still raining…I did a yard walk and everything that is supposed to be dry still is, a good thing!

We had a good breakfast, Sue laid down to rest the back, and I worked on Alexa.  I finally got the intercom to work!  I also learned not to intercom with an Alexa close by or the feedback is deafening!

Speaking about Alexa, Sue and I sent one to Pete and Lisa and this is Pete setting it up!  They called with a lot of frustration but we said keep piddling with it and it will work fine.

I know he was cussing me under his breath!

Lisa called back as was so excited about it!  Pete’s first question was, “What is the weather”?  I am sure they will have a load of fun with it!

It’s noon and we had a great lunch so it is off to the performing arts center to see “The Carol King Story”.  The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation

It was one terrific performance!!!

Did You Know? Carole King (born Carol Joan Klein, February 9, 1942) is an American composer and singer-songwriter. She is the most successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century in the USA, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1955 and 1999. King also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK, making her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts between 1952 and 2005.

Homeword bound in a lot of traffic as it is still raining a bit…but, we can see blue sky over in our neck of the woods!

The sky is beginning to dry up!

We decided to stay in this evening and take care of the back so we can go out tomorrow to Old Ranch and meet everyone!  By the time it was 10:30 PM Sue’s back was so sore she was in tears…I finally got her comfortable after using Aspercreme and arranging the bed so she could sleep (we have a Sleep Number bed with all the bells and whistles).  I stayed up until midnight before crashing.

I have not been walking a lot but the machine keeps track daily anyway!

Still managed a mile…better than nothing!

Good night akk!
