be happy

Today we woke up to dense fog.  It was quite fun really as long as you do not have to drive in it.  It did not take long for it to burn off though.  The weather man predicted record highs for this whole week.  The weather has been really great here too. 

I went and did one of my unique crafts I blogged about earlier.  We put together a wreath that resembles the American flag.  It is made from material that is a throw away from making shiny sequin like thingies for other crafts.  It took me about an hour to make, but all the pieces parts were cut before I started.  It is lit with a string of white lights.  I really like it. 


 Rog got all the mini-blinds he had purchased up, so off to the store to get one more.  He will get that one up tomorrow and then we will be all done with that job.  

I also purchased veggies to make soup.  I love homemade soup and can eat it as a snack instead of the stuff I do eat. Soup done and yummy.
    Did not do much picture stuff or other stuff so here is a joke I found on FB enjoy.
Interesting joke. 
Known for colorful speeches Dallas Federal Reserve President Richard Fisher offered up this joke in a speech before the conservative Cato Institute Wednesday afternoon.
Here, he describes how Texas has succeeded in producing a "pro-business, pro-growth environment," versus a state like California, which he says has done just the opposite with its "overburdened social structure." He credits a friend with the joke.

The governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the governor's dog, then bites the governor. The governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie Bambi and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.
He calls animal control. Animal control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the state $200 for testing it for diseases. The governor goes to the hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and getting his bite wound bandaged.
The running trail gets shut down for six months while the California Fish and Game Department conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals. The governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a 'coyote awareness program' for residents of the area. The Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.
The governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training, re: the nature of coyotes. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.
The governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and tries to attack him and his dog. The governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.
The governor spent 50 cents on a .380-caliber, hollow-point cartridge. Buzzards ate the dead coyote.
And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.
