Not everything is bad, though. We've met with friends, visited with a brother who lives in Mississippi, and are enjoying our hot Maryland weather. On Thursday I celebrated a birthday and received a new iPad which was a dual-edged sword because it won't let me into my usual sites or accept any of the passwords I provide.
Okay -- enough whining -- here is the good.
The gardens are in bloom. And these bring me great joy.
Tomorrow, I go for a root canal.
