Thanks, Dawg. I'm pretty sure it's one of those that doesn't go away until you sleep and wake up again.

Six loads beats me by double. I got three done, and no shopping. I'll shop tomorrow, and probably a load or two of clothes, but none of it is pressing enough to not take a break now and then. I'm good at taking breaks.

Oh how I would love to hear owls here! They have always fascinated me. I had a wonderful experience with an Eagle owl named Merlin on the Isle of Wight in the UK in 2011.
I'll never forget it. He had a wing span of 6 feet before he flew to me, and weighed only 6 lbs.

Wow, Kayelle, you had a tête-à-tête with an owl! That is so much cooler than hearing them!

For years we had a beautiful snowy owl that used to return every winter and set up a nest in the same place right next to a runway at Logan Airport. The Audubon Society checked on her every year. Then one year she was very sick and died. Too bad she never brought another one with her and showed them a safe place to winter each year. I miss seeing the reports on her each year.

Well, I finally had to admit that I am definitely a senior citizen. I had an ironing board from the early 1940's. It had a wood top with iron legs. I had found it about 40 years ago in a thrift shop in Tacoma and paid the grand sum of $.69. That board traveled everywhere with me. I loved it. It came with about 15 or so covers on it along with the pads. One by one over the years each one wore out. Then I got down to the last one. I had some surplus material and mended it over and over. I finally gave up the ghost. It became just too heavy for me to lift to take it out of the closet.

I also had to put my EuroPro iron into storage. When filled with water, the tank and iron together just became too heavy also. So I bought a Proctor Silex cheap one. Yesterday I took every pair of slacks and pants out of the closet and washed and ironed them. I still love a nice crease in the legs. Pirate wants my old iron. That thing gives off steam that can give you a very serious burn if you are not careful. Now I have to find a light weight ironing board that I can handle.

I know. Who irons today. I only buy clothes that are 100% cotton due to a skin condition. So my blouses and pants get ironed.

Great pic, Kay! I just love owls.

Loved the video of the snowy owl, GG. They're sooo beautiful!

That's so cute of you and Merlin, Kay! I've been enjoying the snowy owl video too, it's been on the news.
