Today is Remember Pearl Harbor Day. We must never forget.
Since most of the chores are done it’s time to sit down and
put pencil to paper so to speak. Now that the feral cats, wild
birds, squirrels and other critters are fed; Dads broken fence
is removed awaiting a new section of fence to replace and
another chat with him over, I have the time.
The cardinals were out today along with most of the feral cats
which was interesting to watch. When I came back in the score
was birds 1, cats 0. The birds were more interested in having
lunch than being lunch.
When I left this morning the wind chills were in the single
digits which made me glad it didn’t take long to dismantle the
fence. After I got inside Dads house he was looking out his
front door for the morning paper so I volunteered to go and see
if I could find it.
It was way off to one side almost hidden in the bushes. They
can’t even put the paper on the porch for a 92 year old man?
And no, it is not an enclosed porch.
Our city leaders seem bound and determined to mess up our
riverfront park and add some private/public partnerships in
the mix. If I remember correctly these would be restaurants.
All in effort to make our city on the east coast of Iowa a
We who live here know how that works. Our skybridge to
nowhere was going to make us a destination and we all see how
that turned out. We see nothing wrong with leaving it a park
complete with grass and trees minus the glitz.
Enjoy our Thursday as we won’t get another until next week.
Now I need some more coffee and a Snickers.
