Good morning everyone

It is very chilly here this morning but it is going to be a bright sunshiny day

We have to sort out all our tax stuff and email it all through to our accountant today as it is tax time here, also going to be doing a bit of gardening out in the sun

I just got my recertification for food stamps. It is 12 pages long and all the answers have been filled in. All I have to do is sign it. There is a section for 65 y.o. and above. One of the questions is "Are you pregnant?" They have "No" checked off for me. I so want to change that to "YES" and really shake them up. That would be the talk of their office. A client 73 years old and pregnant. I also want to meet the idiot who put that question in that section. My laugh for the day. I told my son he was going to get stuck with babysitting duties while I am out on the town bar hopping.

At the beginning of the week, we had temps in the high 90's. Today it didn't get above 69F.

Simon, my cat, & I had a scare this morning. Simon was drinking out of the tub faucet while I sat putting in my contacts. When I turned on the hair dryer to dry my hair he took off running as usual. Except this time he somehow ran into the dryer cord & got it wrapped around his neck. He freaked out & started squirming, getting tied up further. I freaked out trying to grab him before he strangled himself. I finally got him up against me so he'd stop struggling, in the process we demolished the plug on the dryer. At least, other than being scared, he seems to be okay. He let me feel around to see if he was hurting. He let me brush a couple handfuls of loosened hair off him before he wanted down. He took off & hid for a while. I did get him to eat a few treats but he didn't want me to touch him & I don't think he has been in the bathroom yet. I had to leave for a couple hours & when I got back he was still skittish but sat by me while I ate supper. Of course he got a bite or two if chicken. Now he is laying in his usual spot on top of me. He had me worried but I think he'll be okay. It might take him a while to go back in the bathroom with me though.
