June 5, 2019

.

I am not a pastel person. And I am not a pink person. But look what followed me home from the farmers’ market.  You can't really tell how big this bouquet is.  It's huge, and very tall.  A whole lot of "wow"......  Iris.

June 4, 2019 -- a day of amazing firsts!

.

A day of exciting firsts! 

1)  First time this year the laundry has gone outside to dry. 

2)  Not sure, but betting this is the first time since I’ve owned a house in springtime that the first loads didn’t go out till June! (Chilly wet weather means laundry hangs in the basement.)

3)  And finally, a first that is almost certainly a last — we had exactly as many clothes pins as we needed to hang up these two loads. (That white load uses a LOT of clothes pins!)

in the "you learn something every day department"...

.

... here's the coolest thing I learned today!  There is info on a car's instrument panel telling you which side you'll put the gas in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have specifically checked a rental car to see which side I need to put gas into, and have still driven up to the wrong side of the pump.

This is so cool!!!!  Who knew!?!??!!?!

a "thanks for writing get-out-the-vote postcards" video :-)

.

This video is from one of the campaigns I've been writing for.  He mentions some benefits of writing get-out-the-vote postcards that I'd thought of -- not just getting out the vote, but encouraging the candidate.  He also mentions a big one I hadn't thought of -- people on the ground, hearing about people all over the country writing to help in their district -- are more motivated to get out and knock on doors, etc.

Go, Blue Wave!!!!
