SPARKS and Awww Monday

Just a note to many of you who visit Marg's Animals.
I have been very worried about her.  
I wrote to Terry at Brian's Home to see if he had heard from Marg.

This is what he said:

Hey Cecilia,

Marg’s internet went down.  She lives way out in the boonies and because of the virus they can’t even give an ETA on getting it fixed.

While walking thru our neighborhood last week, we saw a young mom with a stroller on the other side of the street.   She had one of the double strollers with an infant in one section and a toddler riding  in the front.
We waved at them.  The toddler hollered, I'm eating a graham cracker I hollered back,  I like graham crackers with peanut butter.  His mom hollered, he does too but they are too messy for a walk. He hollered, when I'm at home I have to eat them over a paper towel.
I hollered back, that is a great idea!!

With all the social distancing nowadays, we aren't going any where except in the car
From the passenger seat of the car, I spotted the squirrel who was having lunch.
I have no idea what kind of insect this is but I don't think he knew about social distancing he let me get very close.  Maybe he was frozen with fear that my big feet were way to close

  1. I would be lost right now without the internet right now. Here's hoping Marg gets back on line soon. I did consider holing up in my Torridon cottage, also (in UK terms) in the 'boonies' and with dodgy internet, but I know I'm better off in Aberdeen, surrounded at least by friendly neighbours, even if I can only talk to them at distance over the garden wall or, in more vulnerable cases, from the street with them shouting through open windows! The social distancing business must be very tough on those who are hard of hearing.
    Have a good week.
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. That is bad that they can't give a date on fixing the internet. They are prioritising people here, and as an older person living alone Marg should be high on priority.
    Thank you for giving me a big laugh this morning. I am sure it was unintentional, but referring to the insect you wrote, "I have no idea what kind of incest this is"!

    1. MOL MOL MOL....oh my word I am delighted you got an unintentional chuckle.
      Angel Madi is probably giggling too. I love making folks laugh...
      Hugs Cecilia

  3. we had the same thought... and we fear the moment when the internet is overcrowded and the providers have a problem... that probably would bother people more than the curfew...

    ...I don't know about the incest. The insect though, would appear to be a cricket or grasshopper...

    It is true, the internet is no longer a luxury, but an essential utility for all - but especially for those in remote circumstances and of a certain age! I do hope that gets sorted for Marg. YAM xx

  7. I don't think there will be any problem keeping the craziness coming... I have a lot of it and I have seen that the fun craziness between friends brings the smiles. I don't know what I would do without the sweet friends I interact with on their blogs and through emails daily. I don't know Marge but I hope she gets her internet back very soon. I love it here at your blog Cecilia and appreciate all the people that comment here!

    1. I noticed the sentence under my squirrel pictures was confusing...
      I re arranged it to this

  12. I knew about Marg's internet being down. I should have said something. We do worry about her and we should. She's a treasure.

    Love the paper towel idea for the graham crackers done the way he likes.

    Awww on the evil squirrel. They are cute.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Big hug, honey. ♥

  13. Conversations on walks are fun these days! Everyone's so desperate to talk. The other day a little girl yelled out "Hi Doggy!" Momma said, "Her name's Matilda!" "My name's Bella! Bye Matilda!" "Bye Bella!"

  14. What a fun conversation you had with that young family. I'm sure the toddler must be missing seeing people other than his family. At least we are still able to get out for walks.

  15. Right now I would be so lost without the internet. I keep hoping that on top of all of the craziness with life (and the pandemic) we don't get hit with bad weather, and then what happens? Jonesboro, AR. I think back on Nashville being hit by another tornado early this month and what are those people doing? I also think ahead and wonder about this virus with hurricane season upcoming. I just keep hoping for the best.

  16. I had emailed Terry about Marg too and was relieved it was the internet instead of sickness. That little boy sounds adorable. XO

  17. LOL! A social, socially distancing moment!

  18. Oh my, I am soooo sorry to hear about Marg, how rough that must be!!!

    I smiled soooo big when you told us about your "conversation"with the adorable boy...I can totally see you talking(or hollering) back and forth!!

  19. I can't imagine life without the internet these days. Hope Marg can get hers fixed soon.

    It's nice to see your colorful blooming trees (and that picture of Madi) in your header.

  20. Thank you for letting us know about Marg - we too were worried about her.

    That was a fun conversation with those little ones. Mom likes her pb on BelVita crackers/cookies. Yummy and crunchy.

  25. We do hope Marge is OK.
    A lizard from our front yard would still be alive if she and Xena had practiced social distancing.

  26. perhaps someone has a spare computer? Or one for rent for cheap? Oh my!

  29. Poor Marg. Living in the country is wonderful but the internet is usually spotty at best. It was one of the joys of moving to the suburbs for me back in the late 80's. Our neighbors had a driveway party last Friday. We all sat out in our own driveways and visited long distance. It was nice to have other human contact. LOL!
