Well, we were lucky enough to not get blown away the other day. The clouds were just awesome and we saw funnels galore but besides losing our electrical transformer the tornadoes stayed away. We didn't have electricity for a few hours. That is bad when your wondering what the weather is doing.
My son's house is finished. Today he started moving things in. Mostly his few hundred books. We all read a lot in this family. The great thing about getting rid of TV is it cultivated book reading in us all. He likes to buy his books so he always has something I can read. I don't buy them much anymore as I am trying to keep the libraries alive by going there often.
It seems mostly these days like it is full of perverts huddled over the computers on the top floor. Hutched over the screen trying not to let people know they are trying to pick up children on the internet or looking at porn. Scary unkempt people you wouldn't want to meet in an alley.
The library tried to bar them, but even perverts have more rights then us. Prove it! Well...their body language proves they are doing something you just don't want to know about. Are they talking to your daughter or granddaughter? Pretending to be their age. Sending them pictures of their private parts! I did see that show on TV when we were staying at my MIL's. Scary stuff.
Sometimes the entire computer thing makes me cringe. My predator father would have had a field day with the new technology. He preyed on newly widowed women. Befriended them, wooed them, married them and took everything they owned. Abused them for kicks and slept with their daughters. Destroyed them. I have nothing of my father in me. Just the knowledge that these type of monsters do exist.
Anyway. What have I been up too? Not to much. Finished the son's house. Tried to stay dry. Looking at marbles and new clocks. studying my new class on line, reading a good book. Waiting for dry weather so I can take my bike out. Tomorrow we are going on a photo shoot and to an auction to check out some clocks. I think I have room for a couple more. I promised my oldest one of my clocks for his place when he moves.
I am behind on alerts. My computer keeps crashing. I have read most of them but right in middle....boom, the computer is down. Ticks me off. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Take care all.
