True to form, because we watered the garden yesterday, it rained. Not just a drizzle but a torrential downpour through the night, and the wind………………….. oh my god, the wind.
All roof tiles are accounted for but when I walked the dog earlier, there were a few stray branches on the pathway. I didn’t see a soul.
So, what are you up to today?
Is it your birthday?
If so, Happy Birthday and here is a virtual cake for your celebrations.
I read in the news about an entire street coming out to sing Happy Birthday to an eight year old as she couldn’t have a party or friends in to celebrate her special day.
Have you ever dialled , or been, a wrong number?
I took a call yesterday from a number I didn’t recognise and an unfamiliar gentleman’s voice was equally as wary as I. I wasn’t too happy to give my name, but asked if he was doing OK and coping in the current crisis. He said he was and thanked me for my concern.
Then I heard someone in the background and everything twigged. It was someone we knew and I’d spoken to his wife the day before but their number didn’t come up on my call ID (now rectified). Seems he was trying to delete something and hit the wrong button, getting me. They are both in their 80s and doing well.
On the other end of the subject, several years ago I misdialled and sang Happy Birthday down the phone to someone who was not my mother. It made their day, and we had a pleasant chat for a few minutes then I wished her a happy non-birthday before ringing off.
So if someone calls who you don’t know, or you end up talking to someone because of a misplaced digit, pass the time of day, especially in the current circumstances when so many are in isolation and may be feeling alone, forgotten or lonely.
Keep safe everyone. Feel free to copy the image and spread the rainbow.
We had stiff wind and rain yesterday and it’s the same today. Even Mother Nature is out of sorts right now. This is one way of making sure we all stay indoors and away from each other.
She sure works in mysterious ways sometimes!
She sure does!
When The (first) Matrix movie had just been released, a friend and I used to call random telephone numbers and, if we got an answer, would ask ‘Red pill, or blue pill?’ and then, after we got a response, just hang up. (We got a few ‘what?’ responses, but they were mostly ‘red pills’.)
… well, it seemed funny at the time….
I can see it would have been at the time. We had calls in the middle of the night for a few days, and there was always silence at the other end. I turned the tables, retrieved the last caller number and dialled it, withholding our own. When a sleepy voice answered I told them that someone in their household was making nuisance calls in the early hours, and now that they were awake, would they kindly deal with it, then hung up.
Yes, well, in my defense we were younger and therefore more foolish at the time. I hope we didn’t annoy anyone (though I guess we probably did).
We’ve all done something daft at some stage or another.
Most of the wrong numbers I get are from creepy people who seem to target women by incessantly calling them at odd hours. But loved to read your experiences with wrong numbers. In the current scenario, people may feel lonely and isolated and all they want is for someone to let them know that they’re not alone. Hope you’re safe and well. Take care, dear.
You too Shweta
We hand wind and rain, Arkansas, Kentucky was in line for a tornado, Arkansas got worse of it. On common day with no virus enough with a tornado but not able to console someone because lost their home. I can’t imagine having to stay 6 feet away instead Of hugging or shaking hands etc is sad.
We went to get my meds, gas for the car and a few groceries(still no paper goods in the store) return home. Abbie our little pup went outside to play with freezbie.
Glad you got some groceries. We’re hoping to do a small shop tomorrow evening to replace what we’ve used this week. Hopefully we’ll be able to get most things on our list
Nice rainbow! Have a good day ❤️
You too Paula
A nice sunny post, though it’s raining in your part of the world.
We’ve had a couple of showers, but for the most part of the day it’s been dry, just windy, and the wind here is bitter.
Over here it is nice. Cool with sunshine.
Just had freezing hail for five solid minutes!
Wow! Is it usual weather for this time of the year?
It’s been all over the place and we haven’t had any snow yet! We had three feet of the stuff at Easter in April 2008 and Maggie was not impressed as she’d never seen any before!
We didn’t turn the heating off during the day today so are nice and snug.
Its been Sunday here. A good friend came round and we sat down the yard, one point five metres apart, and enjoyed the warm morning and the amazing sight of the landscape fully recovered from the drought of a month or so ago. Can’t say I’ve been sung to nor sung to a stranger but I believe it can happen. Good to hear you are doing well Di.
Take care Michael. We’re playing verbal tennis with our neighbour over the fence.
Thank you for the rainbow. I have printed off and out one in my window, not so long ago. ☀️🌈
You’re welcome Liz. We have one in the window too
