It has been raining all night and it is kind of dark out still. Poor Charlie has to go out in that rain and I stand at the door with a towel to get him warm.
Ivy has increasingly been begging to be petted. This is more a recent state of events. She’s always liked her head to be petted. But now she’s relentless.
I call her Miss Lovey Beggar. When I pet her head she often falls over in her bliss. Her big paws open and close as cats are wont to do when they’re happy.
I watched another episode of “Brokenwood” last night. I spent some of yesterday afternoon trying to figure the whole Vera thing out.
When you go to Amazon Prime Video and put “Vera” in their Search box it takes you to a page where you can sign up for Acorn or Britbox, wherever the particular season you want to watch is being shown.
I can’t find anywhere where you can watch it free with Prime. I think Amazon must have made some sort of deal with them.
I’ve already paid for a year of Acorn TV, but haven’t tried Britbox. Maybe I could watch what I haven’t seen in the one week trial period.
I get Amazon Prime with my cell phone plan. Which is good since I rarely use the darned thing for anything else.
I just can’t understand people’s intense desire to have their cell phone as an appendage to their body. I just don’t get it. It’s like an addiction.
Sitting somewhere with the phone piddling around just bores me to tears. I get all the internet time I want on this laptop and want no part of it when I’m away.
I guess I’m a strange duck. For me it’s just something useful if I have car trouble, which luckily I never have had happen with this 14 year old car. Or to use for coupons. That’s pretty much the extent of the interest for me.
When I’m out and about I want to look at trees and birds and such. I don’t want to deal with a phone.
Who wants to miss a gaggle of geese crossing the road? Or flying overhead? I just think what I might miss if I had my focus on a phone instead of the world around me.
I’ll be meeting younger daughter for lunch today. I’m not sure I want to go out all that much because I have an ear ache and it’s cold and wet. But I hate to miss the chance to see her.
Older daughter emailed and has a full day and no time for lunch so maybe next time for her.
