Jane,the snow is melting fast,because the rivers and streams are running high. The neighbor at the end of our road told hubby he kayaked from his place (where there is a huge ledge) down to our place. So,the water is really high to be able to kayak over the ledge and other assorted huge rocks.
Good Morning! One more week in Florida for us. We've started packing. Speaking of Elizabeth Warren,if we thought Hillary's tent suits and Michelle's shower curtain outfits were bad,Liz needs to go shopping. Does she only have one pair of black slacks,one black tank top and three jackets (red,blue and purple) in her wardrobe? I'm feeling catty this morning. :)
The daughter just called. She and her hubby went for coffee and are going to take a walk in the Arboretum. We were chatting and she said,oh we just passed a guy talking to a light pole. Ha,I said probably a member of Congress. :)

Happy Easter JOM!
Man Tran,I hoped that you would comment. Our EE nephew just got a job with a company on Bainbridge Island. He's been on a westward trek for over a year. When we saw him in WY last August,he had already been to the Seattle area and it seemed likely he would settle there,for now anyway. He's only 25 and very intense and smart.We're waiting for him to invent something. :)
Our huge thunderstorm has passed. Scout barked and wagged his tail,he wanted to go on the lanai during the thunder and lightening. Last night on Lou Dobbs,Victoria Toensing said that 47% of Americans think that the Russians "fiddled with" voting machines, (think Boris and Natasha). That is the most disturbing thing about this mess. Almost half of our "fellow citizens" are willfully blind to this stupidity.

Jack,I'm so sorry! Next Door is helpful,when pets go missing here,everyone is on the lookout. When the grout guys were here this morning,the laundry room door to the garage was open and I kept Scout locked in the den. He cried,but I didn't feel sorry for him. He'd be out the open door in a minute.

The daughter just sent me a beautiful picture of the White House. She had a breakfast meeting at the White House mess. I'm not bragging. :)

Good Morning! Speaking of college,a young guy originally from Massachusetts just re-grouted the shower and kitchen floor. He came to Florida when he was 17. He's got a great business and no college debt. He's a hard worker and an entrepreneur. He has a French Canadian last name,hubby said,you must be from up north and with that name,you're a hard worker. Speaking of New England,Biden is going to strike with the Stop and Shop workers tomorrow. Because there won't be any other news. *eyeroll*

The daughter gave me a lovely large Rose Window sun catcher from her trip to Paris. It is hanging in a window at the cabin and catches the afternoon sun.

Neil Cavuto shut down Bill Donohue. Donohue tried to mention the churches being desecrated and Neil said,we're not discussing.

Caveat just cut off Bill Donohue. No discussion,no speculation.

My daughter is heartbroken. The son-in-law proposed to her in Paris. That fire doesn't look contained at all! Terrible.

Good Morning! Jane,now you know why we keep Scout on a leash. Terriers have to do their thing. :)

I have a soft spot for Tiger Woods and Tom Brady. Maybe because they are in the daughter's age cohort. I think Tiger's comeback is called redemption.

Okay,I've got tears in my eyes. :)

As you know,Lewiston,Maine has a large Somali population. Any "incidents" are seldom reported by the Maine media,but last June they had no choice. A (white) man was killed during a brawl at a Lewiston park. The police have arrested three suspects,including a 13 year old. The brawl was some sort of turf battle about who "owns" the park. At the time,witnesses told police a gang of 30 Somalis and Congolese attacked a group of white people. The police did a very thorough investigation,including a search warrant for a videotape of the brawl. One of the men arrested is now 18,so his name has been released. Emmanuel Knurunziza has been charged with manslaughter after telling police he threw a rock that caused the blunt force trauma that killed the man. The other suspects are charged with simple assault for stomping on the man and causing other serious injuries. The man's (Donald Giusti) family aren't happy with the simple assault charges. To their credit,the family sound like decent people and have held vigils with the Somali community. Law enforcement obviously walked on eggshells during the investigation. The man arrested for manslaughter was found 300 miles north of Lewiston in a northern Maine town. He's been wandering around the state for 10 months. Another interesting fact is that an interpreter translated English into Lingala (a Bantu language) during his court appearance. How long has he been here? Did he attend school? Are officials "allowing" certain groups to claim turf and turning a blind eye? If this is happening in Maine,I can't imagine the issues in larger cities.
