Double take

(In previous years that sour cherry’s limbs were so flimsy the birds couldn’t perch on them. There were seven when I pulled the camera up.)

Over at someone’s listing.

You want a big house, you want a short commute, you want to look out on all the city lights. I get that.

But–someone help me out here. There in the basement.

A king-size.  Bunkbed.


And on a different note, after previously saying they had 100,000 doses on order but couldn’t make any appointments and actually canceled second appointments for some who’d gotten through on the earlier rounds, my medical clinic came through today and my hours of site-searching paid off. My first vaccine dose is next Thursday. Richard can’t get it yet in this state, but now at least I can.

Woo Hoo! On vaccine!

Regarding the bed … because you can? Or perhaps some really tall people live there? Where the St Bernard sleeps? All six kids sleep in one bed?

Um… Yeah, I got nothin’. I’m thinking a relic from a previous house? Everything else in the house is so modern and sleek, and that bed is sort of rustic log home-feeling… maybe it has sentimental value? Memories for them? Or, as Anne said, maybe some really tall people live there? Or come to visit???

Hooray for vaccines! I get my shot tomorrow – and I just heard last night that it will be the J&J vaccine, so it will be one and done! Yay!

I can’t explain the bunk bed, but I would certainly imagine it was left by a previous owner as too difficult to move.

Hooray for vaccine! Florida is dropping the age to 50+ next week, so I hope to get mine soon.

Hurray for your vaccine appointment. Hope Richard is able to get one soon also.

I got nothin’ on that bed. That’s just odd.

But the best darn thing about grandma’s house
Was the great big feather bed
It was nine feet high and six feet wide
And soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty ‘leven geese
Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It could hold eight kids and four hound dogs
And a piggy we stole from the shed
We didn’t get much sleep but we had a lot of fun
On grandma’s feather bed.

Oh LauraN. What a load of memories that brought back. All us kids at my (much older) sister’s farmhouse. Our family had none of those things (except the pig and it was definitely not in the bed) BUT . .

The feeling of being together and the laughter and fun? Oh yes. We had that in spades. Thanks. I really needed that today.
