Trudi’s Corner

By Trudi Cunningham

How many have a pet day of the week? It may seem to be a weird question, but my pet day is Saturday and I’m not referring to an animal. It’s the day that I do things by degrees, such as relaxing at breakfast, checking T.V. programs and debating what I expect to accomplish without too many problems.

In regards to T.V., there are so many cartoons and various children’s programs that don’t appeal to me, but would you believe my husband and family were absolutely “hung up” on them in their day? I had been looking at some for a while, until I happened to change the channel and came across Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown animal program on Channel 7.

Now that’s my cup of tea, a program that’s fascinating and educational. I know the cartoons in most instances make a definite point, such as good overcoming evil, but I would like to suggest viewing the program mentioned. There was the story of endangered gorillas, stating that there were only 200 in existence, but with protected areas there are now 750. There is the mention of illegal poaching, a dog ranch in Montana, the program for deserted and injured dogs, and a horse farm in Florida for the benefit of horses that would have been slaughtered by are now living “the good life” to the end of their days.

I guest I’m just so much in favor of things like this, and thought it might be of interest to others. Other than that, I need to do the things I didn’t have time for during the earlier part of the week. Sometimes I can truly skip some of those as well, because they may not be urgent. Hopefully there’s still tomorrow, wouldn’t you agree?

My final gripe (that I’ve mentioned previously) is when a program is interrupted to relate the outcome of caucuses or some other type of news, when it will be repeated over and over again on regular news programs.
