Good Friday morning. I’ve had a pack of coyotes in my backwoods hootin’ and hollerin’ since 5am so I’m a tad grumpy. Hopefully coffee, and lots of it, will cheer me up.
Brisk here. Definitely a crispiness in the air. But my favorite time of year. I did notice yesterday and the days of last weeks extreme heat, the stink bugs were appearing on west side of house and on window screens. Ugh.
NBC Connecticut weatherman Ryan Hanrahan tweets cloud photos his viewers send in – this one, a formation I’ve never heard of -“an incredible fallstreak hole/hole punch cloud”. Beautiful.
The remaining wind of Maria is churning up the RI coast, a few decent waves.
Although I watched the final episode of the PBS series Vietnam**, I heard the football teams all stood for the anthem last night, but with locked arms, which I’m told is still in protest mode. StubHub was selling NFL tickets at a big discount. I hate to sound repetitive, but I like Winning. The fans are speaking. Speaking loud and clear they do not want politics on the field.
**I’d love to chat about the Vietnam series if anyone else does. Specifically, did Ken Burns leave out footage of Hanoi Jane or did I just miss it? I think I’ve only not watched one episode. I thought the series was good but my enthusiasm waned a bit at the end, I thought it was more a political statement than fact based. Anyone else feel that way?
And for a total Friday Funday to any bachelor out there, call this gal today!
If I’ve left out any good news from overnight, let me know. Otherwise, start your engines ladies and gents – it’s the weekend!
