Birthday Eve more pollen!  Happy Dance!  It was amazing as the rain started today, swirls of yellow dust covered the lungs are breathing a sigh of relief.  But spring in Alabama is so very are everywhere you look, wisteria hangs from the trees like purple rivers.....most of the leaves on the trees are that 80's acid on the verge of yellow, Monet would have loved it here.

Blackie Bear and I did not sleep well last night, both our bodies could feel the change in the atmosphere, he would grunt as he tossed and turned on his bed.....I did the same.  We both consumed asprins today......his hips are just not what they use to be, and neither are mine.  It is cooler and the air is clean tonight, I suspect we both will sleep soundly.  Of course that chunk of chocolate with the
carmel center I just consumed may interfere with  my trip to see the sandman.

Wow, my birthday is less than an hour is one of those milestones......I face it with mixed emotions.......thankful I am here......confused by how quickly time has passed......and how the hell did I get this old??????   But I do wear the badge of "tough old broad" well.  I think I should go to bed now, I need all the beauty sleep I can get!  Ha,Ha!
