Yesterday I commented about not ending sentences with prepositions. I am not exactly a fanatic about it and I certainly don't correct others when they do. In fact sometimes, and only sometimes the sentence just sounds better with the preposition dangling at the end. What really grates is when it is entirely unnecessary as in the question, "Where's it at?" Or another question, "Where're ya goin' to?" Just the thought is like fingernails on the chalkboard.
I try to maintain a positive attitude from the very beginning of every day. I count it a blessing that I am able to get out of bed and stand up unassisted. I give thanks that there is a kitchen with a coffeemaker that will produce a pot of coffee in the time it takes to go outside and pick up the morning newspaper.
Aha!!! There's the rub. The morning paper is being delivered to the car parked in the driveway instead to the house. In fact the other morning it was under the car [maybe it crawled there to get out of the cold].
Maybe it is my imagination. I think that, in the 25 years we have had home delivery here, the newspaper has been delivered further and further from the door each year.
Maybe there is a scheme by the publisher to eliminate carriers and have the subscribers pick it up directly?
...and now to end on a pleasant note, if you have about five minutes to spare, turn on the sound and watch 'The Sky in Motion.'
