I spent a lot of time getting frustrated today. Not this morning, I attended the Pima County Board of Supervisors meeting and it became hilarious. The chair of the Board is a woman but she did not attend today so the vice-chair, a man, presided. One Board member kept making his requests to “Madame Chair” out of habit. So the Board began making a joke of it. After the meeting I told the Vice-Chair that he should attend the next meeting in drag. The meeting took a long time and when I started to go to the bus company to try to straighten out my problem, I couldn’t right away as my monthly pass was void and I had to get change for the bus. Once I had the change, I went to where the headquarters was, and I had been told wrong because it was just a department of the bus company that was there. By the time I got home it was pretty much the end of the day. I sent an email to the company with my problem and I doubt I will easily get anything worthwhile back. So, I am frustrated at the government bureaucracy that runs the bus system.

Tomorrow, April 5th,┬áis the birthday of my eldest surviving brother. Two days later, April 7th, it is the birthday of my youngest brother. They were born a year and two days apart. Thinking about them reminds me of the old Phyllis Diller joke: “The twins are nineteen and twenty-two. That is a birth I will never forget.”

The exterminator was by yesterday because of the bee problem. I looked at my backyard today when I got home and discovered a lot of dead bees and none flying around the hole in the shed wall where the cable company ran their cable into my apartment. I am going to have to sweep the dead bees up and safely dispose of them tomorrow. Dead bees can still sting if you are not careful handling them. There is a bit of a history of allergies to bees in the family so I am going to be careful.
