Deepest pool in the world.

I found this while looking online for snorkeling gear that I am going to purchase as a gift for my daughter. I think they said it is over 13 stories high. I know there is also a very deep pool in Dubai and also apparently one in Poland.

I felt claustrophobic watching the guy descend!

I could use a kind word today....

....because I got a phone call that my brotherís stepson died of a drug overdose this morning. He was such a wonderful young man and we loved him. He was trying to kick his addiction. He had been to several long-term treatment programs and would be sober for a long period of time but would slip back into his addiction again. In fact, I learned today that he had just gotten out of another rehab program. I am heartbroken.

On top of that, I was lucky to get my 2nd Moderna shot yesterday, but I do feel awful today. I could not fall asleep last night. I have a fever today, my body aches terribly, I have chills, and I am terribly fatigued but cannot seem to fall asleep, no matter how hard I try. I am taking Tylenol and drinking lots of water to stay hydrated. I expect these symptoms to go away soon, so I am not going to complain. I am just grateful to have had both shots!

My physical issues are nothing, though, in comparison to my broken heart.

My husbandís young stepson died last year from a drug overdose, so my grief is compounded by my memories of his death.

Life can be so sad.

Thank you for being my friends.

I am disappointed that my own two senators were so cowardly that they voted to acquit. However, I wasnít surprised. Marsha Blackburn is pathetic, and Bill Hagerty is such a huge disappointment.

I will be contacting these 7 senators to at least thank them for their votes. I donít believe they will change in terms of aligning themselves with Biden or with Democratic ideals or policies, but I will give them credit for doing the right thing.

I realize that others may have no interest in thanking them but perhaps would still like to contact one or more of them in order to share their thoughts and feelings.

I am surprised that 7 Republicans voted to convict! All of them should have done so. Well, at least these 7 did the right thing.....THIS time.

I see that more ❤️❤️ have come to me! Thank you!

You kind DUers who have given me new hearts have surprised me and made tears come to my eyes!

I wish I could thank each of you in person. I had no idea that these little hearts could have such a powerful impact on me....but they have.

I feel very grateful. I am sending a virtual hug to each of you .....{{{{{🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰}}}}}

My ❤️ is deeply touched by the second ❤️ you gave me!

Thank you very much!

I have been in a lot of chronic pain the past six months (no cartilage is left in either of my knees, requiring two knee replacements as soon as my hospital is back to allowing elective surgeries), and the hearts have lifted my spirits today!

You have made me smile!
