Jim, I am just mortified at what you are dealing with. Unbelievable, rude people. And the cops never showed up? Makes me angry.

I was "stuck" on a major highway in downtown Syracuse one time, called 911 for cops to help, was told they were too busy....... tho saw a few police cars whiz by and never stopped to ask if they could help me.

Not a good feeling if the cops are too busy to help us in our time of need for them.

I sincerely hope you are able to relocate soon.

If I ever get out of the slump I've been in for a while, I need to make a road trip (my preferred way to travel). I've always liked the Gulf coast, Bradenton was once thought of as a possible relocation spot.
This is prime time here and getting ready to swing into hot weather shortly. Trust me, I’ll be thinking of lovely upstate NY when I can cut the humidity and heat with a knife down here. That darn grass is always greener.

Spent a great Easter with the family, it was 75 degrees today. WAY too warm for my taste. Anyway the food was great, I took home a ton of leftovers and my 4 year old niece and I had a long talk about the mysteries of the universe.

She decided the one who got the "prize egg" in the Easter egg hunt was the queen of the galaxy.

I don't know about that but she did get $5.

^^^^^^^^You are so lucky to have such wonderful family. So, what did you learn from that sweet 4 year old?

Four year olds are quite wise and you will hear things in a different way than youíve ever heard before from them. Cherish her and I hope today made up a bit for the late night party trucks.

Drats! I just learned daffodils can be toxic to cats. I guess I’m lucky I never accidentally killed any of mine before, I always like daffodils in the house. I’ll put the daffodils out in the lanai before going to bed so I don’t have to worry about our two cats deciding they are interested in them. Oh well, the cut daffodils don’t last long anyway.

I didn't know that about daffodils, either.

My apartment is too dark to have much luck with flowers or plants. And of course my two cats.

My desire to move is stemmed in that fact there is not enough natural beauty to feast my eyes on here where I live. My balcony (I'm on 2nd floor) looks out on the parking lot and across from that are huge trees that are bare right now from their winter sleep. It also faces direct north. Behind the trees are houses with some fences, etc.

I've put flowers and plants out on the balcony before and they have been nice. But it just does not feel like "enough." I don't know if you can understand what I'm trying to say. I hope I find "my" place before it's too late to find it.

Had a great Easter. Went to my son and dil's house. Dil fixed one of the store bought holiday dinners. We brought a fruit salad and coleslaw.

My great-grandson asked me: " Why does grandpa call you dad?"

As are lilies. I wonder how many people brought in Easter lilies that have cats.

Easter Lily Poisoning in Cats

Edit: LOL at Easter lilies having cats. Sometimes I write sentences "backwards".
