I fell asleep watching the television last night. It was too late to blog. My computer was in the process of backing up. I had wanted to tell you about the dogwood tree. The other day, it was filled with red berries. Yesterday, I heard the leaves rustling and thought a big wind had blown up. I looked out and saw a flock of birds descending on the tree. They gobbled up the berries and not a single one is left. I tried to get a photo of them but they looked like black leaves.

I got some more things crossed off my list. The fish tank has been cleaned and I have been sorting through some of the company files. I packed up some boxes and took them to the garage. Some will go to the storage bin and I believe my winter clothes are there. I will bring them home.

Sunday morning, I was walking Danny when I heard something in the direction of my neighbor Alex’s roof. I turned in time to see a squirrel fall off the roof onto the concrete sidewalk. He got up and scooted up the steps and off the other end of the porch. Alex came running out wondering what the noise was. After I told him, we both just shook our heads. I think the squirrel tried to jump from the tree to the roof and either misjudged or the roof may have been slippery from the rain and freezing overnight.

Tomorrow, I will be going to the movies with my friend June. She wants to see “The Secret of the Bees”. Our other friend, Barbara saw it last week and enjoyed it. June and I have found a movie partner in each other. I don’t know what just happened but the computer system just had beeps going off and the server is lit up. Must have been a cut in power or a surge. Beats me.

I think computers absolutely have minds of their own sometimes. We just can't figure the beeps out at times, but, as long as things keep working - Oh Well.

That was a neat story about the squirrel taking a tumble off the roof. I've never seen one fall, but, I have seen them come dangerously close at times. He was a lucky one to be able to run off and undoubtedly try another rooftop.

Hope you and June enjoy the movie. It's just great that you can enjoy movies together. There are times when some of my single girlfriends would like to see a movie, but, they hesitate to go alone. I do have one friend that doesn't mind going alone. In fact, she says she enjoys it. Anyway, I hope you two are enjoying it together.

Enjoy the weekend Karol. Ruth
