Lawdy! Lawdy! Lawdy! What a week! A lot of things were surely packed into it, however looking around me, house cleaning was not one of those things. Having the windows open and gale force winds blowing through, it appears that my dust bunnies have procreated and have been working out to boot. One just blew by me and it was bigger than my hand. I would say it is time to clean. Anyone want to clean my house?
My yard finally doesn't look like a jungle anymore thanks to a very kind individual who used his
And speaking of tornado season, every year at this time, I miss our yearly KAKE TV (at least I think it was KAKE) tornado awareness film. It was literally a part of my yearly childhood experience for as long as I could remember. It was on every year in late March or early April, usually on a Saturday afternoon. I think it was in black and white and it always showed the sky being clear and everyone going about their business and then SUDDENLY.....there were storms, black skies, sirens and of course....a TORNADO! My mom made us watch that faithfully year after year. It reminded everyone that we lived in Tornado Alley and that any time from March on, we needed to be aware that in a moments notice we might have to run for shelter. Yeah, it was a bit dramatic and with the radar of that time, we didn't really have much time to react during some storms, but it set the stage for the season and it was apparently effective enough that they ran it every year for many years. Man it would be fun to see it again, just for a fun walk down memory lane. Not to be outdone by my mother, I personally like to keep the tradition of reminding my family that we live in Tornado Alley going, so every year come March.....I make them watch Twister. It gives you all the drama, a great reminder of what tornadoes can do and you get Bill Pulliam and Philip Seymore Hoffman as an added bonus. So there.....take that 1950's tornado film!
Okay, now we wait. Will I end up in the ER this weekend? Between David's seizures and the possibility of my leg falling off.....survey says.........DUH! IT'S THE WEEKEND OF COURSE YOU WILL! Great! Will we have big storms? Of course we will. Mother Nature would never think to disappoint all these storm spotters? Will my pool actually stay in my back yard until we get it filled? Let's pray it does. And finally......Do you think anyone still has a copy of the old tornado awareness film? If so.....put it on youtube and let us watch!
Well there you have it. Nothing exciting here, just another day in Lisaland.
