Around Oak Meadows

Me and my daughter's dog Sweet Daisy at Brazos Bend State Park. 

Around OakMeadows

We have had a feral cat hanging around for about 2 months.  At first he was way to skittish to come close but would gobble down any cat food we would offer. Gradually, JMM has coaxed him closer until this morning he was able to catch him and take him to the vet for neutering. If he gets along with the rest of the cats, we will be able to keep him inside but he is about a year and a half old according to the vet and has always lived outside. Time will tell how well he domesticates. 

We are planning a trip to Washington, D.C. later this month. We are hoping that the cherry blossoms will be blooming. I want to go to the Capitol, the Newseum, and the National Gallery. It will be nice to have our daughter to show us around and to spend some time with her.  One of the nicest things about growing older is seeing that your child is such a wonderful person. 

I am watching the debacle in Washington over repeal and replace the ACA.  Maybe Canada will invade us and force a sensible healthcare system on us.  

I am finishing two good books: Lindbergh by A. Scott Berg and Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.  Reviews to follow as soon as I finish.  

That's about all the news from OakMeadows where it has been raining and raining and raining some more.

That I too actually kind of think the Canada invasion idea is a good one just goes to show what a sorry state this country is in right now. I am so sad that we didn't visit Washington while we had a decent President. Yeah, I know the things I want to see are still there and all, but I feel like I couldn't forget about the buffoon and his team as I was touring.

SAllie, I'd sure take Justin Trudeau in a flash over what we are having to endure! I'm going to enjoy visiting with my daughter and seeing the cherry blossoms and seeing the sights and ignore the person in the White House.
