What is that smell? – I’m taking a class. After four years of retirement I forgot how bad it smells when 100 people crowd into an auditorium. Phew!
Update on the ants – I’m a sucker for natural so I bought a “natural remedy spray” made of lemongrass oil to deter ants in the house. The stuff stank for hours. I’m never using it again. We are officially living with ants. I moved Hazel’s food dish so she doesn’t have to share her dinner.
Neighbors can be jerks – An orchard farmer started small fires among his fruit tree to protect them against an untimely severe frost this past week. A neighbor complained and the police made him shut them down. He lost his apricot crop and half of his plums. The police chief apologized the next day. Agriculture is an exception to the “no burning” law. (There was no fear of uncontrolled fires.) Hope the neighbor feels like a boob. That profession is hard enough dealing with a fickle Mother Nature.
Better? Seriously? – I received an updated (but still not chipped) credit card. The letter talked of exciting new rewards. As far as I could see they have taken away my free on-line shipping. Couldn’t find what’s better.
Cranky pants? – In proofing my post I noticed a theme. Whine, whine, whine. I’ll try to do better next week folks. Damn weather getting me down.
So how was your week?
