So now it’s April. Garry and I are vaccinated and Owen is half way to his finale. The weather is considering the possibility of warming up and staying that way for more than a few hours. Not dropping to below freezing every night.
The daffodils really want to bloom, but because it keeps getting so cold at night, I think maybe the buds are frozen. Fortunately, inside the house, we’re having a major flowering event. orchids, Easter lilies, anthurium, and not-a-Christmas Cactus are all blooming with enthusiasm. We have plans to plant flower boxes, but — sigh — we are waiting until the frosts finally end.
Do you think psychic abilities exist?
I’d be surprised if they didn’t. I’ve watched our dogs talk wordlessly to one another. I have dreamed real events to which I had no connection including a plane crash — and no, I didn’t know anyone on the flight. I think we all have psychic abilities, but have lost them mostly because talking has replaced them. Do I have any scientific evidence for this? Not a bit.
How would you describe peanut butter to someone who didn’t know what it was?
A really good substance for getting your dog to take pills. Guaranteed to make your jaws stick together.
Why does an octopus squirt ink?
Living underwater, they do not have access to a computer and thus are unable to go to Amazon and buy pens. They’ve gotten a grip on the whole ink thing, but lack the ability to create a writing implement. They are working on it. Anyway, it’s squid who squirt ink, not octopi. Similar, yet somehow different.
Who are two of today’s greatest entertainers in your opinion? (Can be actors, musicians, singers etc.)
You mean still alive? Actually I have favorites. Actors: I can’t remember their names. Late night comedians: Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, and Seth Myers. Singers: Can’t remember any names and haven’t really liked pop music since the Beatles broke up.
