Stuff . . . n' Thangs

As everyone who uses Blogger to blog knows this Month we will have to start using the new blogger interface. I don't like the new interface. It's loaded with problems and they really do not need to replace the old interface. I told a few bloggers out there that I wrote a nasty letter to Blogger that I know no one will read, ever . . .   https://support.google.com/blogger/thread/56573943?hl=en
It was about some of the shortcomings of their work. Yeah, it was pretty rough but I meant every word of it. So, if you feel you want to see it then have at it.

The city (who am I kidding, it's a small town) is repaving the roads in front of and on the sides around us. It is scaring the shit out of Lucy too. When the big trucks dump the hot asphalt on the street and they back up they make that loud beeping sound to alert anyone that might be in the back of them. That beeping scares Lucy for some reason let alone the big trucks are enough to scare the bejeezus out of anyone that isn't a little boy in this neighborhood. Anywho she refuses to go out to pee if she hears them, even far off. I had to carry her outside this morning. She peed and then ran like her little ass was one fire for the kitchen door. The trucks were down the street with a bunch of little boys watching them work. Poor Lucy. If she could have seen the little boys coming up the street she would have braved the trucks.
The sun is trying to push through that Sahara dust that's still around in the atmosphere. it's not as bad as the weekend and I want to go put my sun tea jug out for the day. I do love my sun tea. I'll do it just in case. 
I got a much-needed call from a Social Security rep yesterday. She changed a few things for me so I can get my Medicare-B starting in August instead of October. She said I was eligible for it before David was let go. So as soon as David's Cobra insurance lapses at the end of July my Medicare-B will take over. I'll be covered and won't have to be under lock and key from David. I just have to get the paperwork done from where David worked and then we can take it to them for processing. Everything is go for launch in September for me.
This morning I'm washing sheer curtains from the dining room windows and the french doors. I haven't had the ability to wash them until now. It's been a long time since I first put them up. I'm a bit scared they will disintegrate in the washer even though it's set for delicate wash. It's been almost 12 years since I last washed them. I will have to set them for another wash if the rinse water comes out black like the wash water. OY!!
Well, I have to go check on the curtains. Y'all have a safe and magical day.

I had not heard they were changing the blogger interface. It will probably mess up my whole blog.

Can we not have a new Blogger, our old one is not melted at all.

I tried the new interface and stuck with it for a week and a half. Aside from the controls being harder to understand, various glitches kept appearing, having to do with paragraph spacing and the sidebar mysteriously relocating itself. Finally I gave up and went back to using the old interface.

I suspect they've gotten a lot of complaints. I'm no longer seeing the notice about the old interface no longer being available after July. Maybe they'll keep it around.

I'm ready for the Sahara dust to be gone! It aggravates my allergies. I understand the 'curtain' fear. I have a similar one about all the blinds in my house. Not that they may dissolve but that they will sag and fall down under the accumulated weight of years of dust! Do you think they're supposed to get washed ---- more often than every 9or10 years??
