We Stayed Home!

Fact: Lion roars are the loudest of any other big cat.  Their roars can reach 114 decibels (the same loudness as a chainsaw) and can be heard from as far as five miles away.  This is because lions have a square and flat-shaped voice box, whereas other big cats in the pack have a triangle-shaped voice box.  Translation: better airflow means a louder roar with less effort!

We strolled into the torn-up yard and tried to picture what it would look like in six weeks.

The garden will be Mary’s hiding place!

We did diddley today, mostly straightening up the house and some cooking.  Mary made banana nut muffins and began work on her world-famous jello cake.

I ordered another remote internet-controlled sprinkler system for the south 40.

Robin popped by after work, and the three of us watched TV, talked, and sat out by the firepit until the sun went down.

We talked about growing older and I shared my newest fine on the internet!

If you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and need Long-Term Care, but the government says there is no nursing home care available for you, what do you do?

You may opt for Medicare Part G.

The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You may then shoot one worthless politician. This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the health care you need.

Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That’s great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered!

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now! And, who will be paying for all this? The same government that just told you they can’t afford for you to go into a nursing home.

And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it. And now, because you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any more income taxes! Is this a great country or what?

I’m pretty sure that’s what they said!

We needed a lazy day!  It was lights-out by 9:00 PM.  Robin went to her room and watched a movie and I went to the office and continued work on updating the gardening website.
