The rascals! – Last year was the first time the deer ate my front porch chrysanthemums. I forgot and bought another big pot for this year and they pruned it again. They seem to like the buds best. I put a note in my garden book to not bother next year. Let them buy their own dinner.
Avoiding – We are a week out from our local election. I avoid all news around election time. The majority (if not all of it) is not true. Everything is a blame game and I’m not engaging. Even the really great shows have the awful election ads. Everything has to be recorded or we will wear out the mute button. I will not vote for anyone who spends their ad budget bad mouthing someone else rather than telling us what they would do. The ostriches are smart sticking their head in the sand.
Church-going? That doesn’t cut it! – We live a few blocks from a big church. In order to get to the main road you have to go through a 4 way stop sign. After church has left out, those church-goers fly through the stop sign without stopping. Perhaps they think God is with them. He is not. They are rude and have no problem almost hitting your car then giving you the finger. What’s the point of the attending a church service if you are not going to be kind to your neighbor?
Mice update – Friday night we had another episode of two cats and an old lady catching two mice. Things went much quicker (I attribute that to the cocktail at dinner!). Two adorable mice were re-homed while two cats danced to Bruce Springsteen. This was the first time I caught them on top of a cabinet. I may have found the point of entry. There were mouse droppings (that’s the polite way of saying mouse poop) on the cabinet top. We will try a few sealing techniques. I am convinced the dead mouse that is stinking up the basement is in back of the cabinets. We may try moving them. I need to find my gas mask.
Sadly not – We spend a good part of Saturday going through and moving full size cabinets and all we found was the poop. No dead mouse. In a few more days it should be gone assuming no more mice have heart attacks. I was able to throw out a lot of stuff that I shouldn’t have kept. Always a silver lining.
So how was your week? Were you dancing in the dark (gosh he was so young and handsome!)?
