Where is Miss Manners When You Need Her?

Hi All!

Happily, I am feeling slightly better than I was feeling yesterday - and that is an improvement over the past week! Hopefully, I am on the downward end of this nasty cold!

Tonight I have class and I am sure that I will make it. I may not be the brightest bulb in class tonight but, I will be there, red nose and all!

Yesterday was a day of contrasts. I felt well and ill (at different times of the day). I was invigorated and exhausted. There was good news (our AC will be fixed today!) and bad news (it looks like we need a new roof!). There was excitement ( police cars and the medical examiner at a house across the street) and boredom (just what do you do when it is 90 degrees and you have no AC?).

The police cars have brought up a question worthy of the infamous (or is it famous?) Miss Manners. While I was out getting the mail (and watching the police cars) I saw a woman sitting on the front steps of the house the police were at. I wanted to know what was going on but, I also wanted to know if the woman needed any help. Would it be impolite to approach the woman to ask if everything is okay? We aren't close neighbors - we pretty much never talk. My motivation is 75% curiosity and 25% concern.

I didn't go up to the woman. I just went back into my house and peeked out the windows now and then to see how long the police cars stayed (something like 4 hours!).

Nosy neighbors!

I hope everything is okay!


Voice Update: Doing okay. I haven't been talking too much lately due to the sleeping all the time thing but . . . my voice is still doing well.

I would have waved and asked her if she needed anything. An examiner sounds like somebody died....

Life is never dull, is it?

There is nothing wrong with curiosity.
I'm glad your cold is almost better.
Happy Easter.
