@BonnieF, love the ferns! And I agree about walking in the woods. - There's just something so healing about it. 🌳🌲🌳

My spreadsheet didn't quite match when I put your newest numbers in. (40 minutes gave me 290, instead of 310.) Am I missing a post in there somewhere??

Next topic - Donald Goes to War:

"On December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, drawing the United States into World War II. The very next day U.S. Army troops requisitioned half of Walt Disney’s Burbank, California, studio for their use...

Throughout the early 1940s, Disney churned out military training films, educational shorts (provided to the U.S. government at cost), and military insignia for over 1,000 different units in the U.S. armed forces (provided free of charge)...

In 1943 The New York Times singled out Donald Duck, in particular, as an “ambassador-at-large, a salesman of the American Way” for his representation of the United States both at home and abroad..."

    Tues, 5/12: 142 minutes; horses and some yard work
    Totals through 5/11: 1974/3500 minutes

    Yesterday was one of those crazy days when "things break." The drive-belt came off the riding mower, a newly installed irrigation controller went sideways (quit working), one of my daily buckets presented a huge crack (can't hold water), one horse presented a seriously snotty nose (made a vet appointment), I hit walls with MacOS Catalina, I hit bigger walls with Apple's Music app (I demand a return to iTunes!), a Zoom meeting was sent out with incorrect recurrence scheduling, etc. Just a series of little things ... that stood in the way of success. Sigh. All I could do was pray.

    Yesterday I didn't walk as much as I wanted too. I started to feel sick during out lunch walk and the pretty much didn't leave the couch the rest of the night. I am better today. I have no clue what set off my stomach yesterday. I did get my lunch walk in today. We got back right before the rain started. I am hoping to get one in again this afternoon but we will see what happens with the rain.

    May 14 -- 32

    Total -- 774/1395

    Happy Saturday!

    25 minutes for me (295/600) and congrats to Twilight Sparkle on being the first to reach Poppin' Off Pink! :Pinkbounc:woohoo::Pinkbounc


    Team total is 7,148 and 48%. Only 355 minutes to team purple!! - If we can make that today, we're right on track for goal. :cheer2:


    Let's talk about some of Donald's "Friends, Family, and Foes" in his cartoons, starting with Chip & Dale:

    1. Chip ‘n’ Dale made their first appearance in the 1943 cartoon short, Private Pluto, though at the time they didn’t have names yet.
    2. It would be another four years before they got their names, when they starred in their own short, Chip an’ Dale. Pluto evidently had had enough of the mischievous duo; Donald Duck was the new target of their mayhem...
