Monday Musings - May 6, 2019

1. Welcome to the first Monday in May. 

2. What a weekend, I have a broken mower deck on my lawn tractor, I had a dead battery in a vehicle, and I enjoyed not having to be outside in the rain yesterday.

3. The pool is clearing up nicely. Now if the temperatures would just warm up, we can enjoy swimming.

4. Our lilac bush is finally blooming and filling the air with its sweet fragrance. Our bush is a late bloomer and many other lilacs have already bloomed.

5. I found a gray tree frog on the deck on Saturday. I relocated it from the deck to a safer location, although being a tree frog I should not have worried that it would fall off the deck. 

6. It is very frustrating to be in the middle of mowing the lawn and have a critical spring break on the mower deck! The lawn is half mowed awaiting the spring to get the mower deck working again.

7. I have noticed that the mapping programs I use to go places that i am unfamiliar with sometimes route me in what seems to be a circuitous manner. I wonder why? 

8. It rained all day yesterday. I am happy that Chris and I had planned indoors activities. Sadly, however, it was another weekend without swinging my gold clubs as the small, white and frustrating ball.

9. Today in History. On this date in 1994, In a ceremony presided over by England’s Queen Elizabeth II and French President Francois Mitterrand, a rail tunnel under the English Channel was officially opened, connecting Britain and the European mainland for the first time since the Ice Age.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week

Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: ``We the People.'' ``We the People'' tell the government what to do; it doesn't tell us. ``We the People'' are the driver; the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world's constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which ``We the People'' tell the government what it is allowed to do. ``We the People'' are free.  Farewell Address to the Nation, January 11, 1989
