Some things I find more annoying than other things. The sound of a lawn mower, or no sounds of lawnmowers at the cemetery where you can practically see the grass grow…meetings that don’t start on time and people who are not prepared for said meetings and arrive late.
Our closest little cemetery is very well maintained, it is mowed regularly and trimmed. Half of Far Guys relatives are buried there. The other half are buried at another local cemetery which suffers greatly in the maintenance and mowing department. In my opinion they are not being good stewards of the land or of the money they are entrusted with. Just my opinion. ( They are a bit holier than thou.)
I have asked Far Guy to buy a small push mower and we will take care of our own graves. We can mow and trim them ourselves..it is what people did in the olden days. Perhaps just taking a stand will help..I am not sure anything will change with that group until a few of them croak. They are silver hairs so their time is probably coming soon.
On a different subject..I have a few questions for you..ready? Do you ever get any annoying pop up ads that come up when you open my blog? I have a reader from Alaska who is having a problem with pop up ads appearing. Is it just her? How does she get rid of them? Is it malware of some kind?
Myself, I use Google Chrome mostly and I don’t get pop up ads with that browser. I don’t have an ads that go along with my blog, I know that some people do have ads..but I don’t like commercials on TV so why would I have them on my blog?
The Large Flowered Bellworts are blooming. There is a wild rose coming up right behind this Bellwort that will eventually steal the show from the Bellwort.
It is still rainy and cool. The high yesterday was 56 F or 13C. It was cold in the museum. I had several visitors tour the museum, they didn’t stay too long after getting cold.
Tess, one of my volunteers and I worked in my office where I had a space heater plugged in. It was reasonably warm at 60 F. We tore apart one of those old scrapbook/photo albums that had those horrible self stick pages. Buggers. It is a good thing that it was one of those inferior albums, after eleven years it lost it’s stickyness. We salvaged everything and put them in acid free page protectors in a new album. We had a famous boxer that retired to Park Rapids by the name of Fred Fulton. His entire boxing career is now safely tucked into a different album. Eventually the entire album should be scanned and be available online ..but that is probably not happening anytime soon. Funding for such projects just doesn’t drop out of the sky. I feel lucky that I was able to order acid free page protectors and some albums so that some historical items could be saved, but still be accessible to the public.
I was asked to do some research for a grant, not a grant that we were getting but a grant for a Lake Association..they wanted me to do all their research by June 15…hahaha..I am still laughing over that one. So you know I am not a total witch, I told them I would stack some research material up for them to look at.
So what is annoying you lately?
