Remember to be extremely discriptive about a haircut.

When I tell the salon lady "make me look 19" she says, "I'm a beautician, not a magician".

What a beautiful bird!!!

Yes it is, and people live on its land, its habitat.

Our species is very successful... too successful for our own good.

My neighbor had a target of opportunity walk through his yard a number of years ago. Took aim out the kitchen window and said, "venison".

My father-in-law shot a deer from his back porch a few years ago. I'm glad I didn't see it happen personally.

We happened to be present in Utah for the Cal vs BYU game. (No alcohol in the stadium, but all the visitors were given free ice cream - so nice!!!) Cal is doing surprisingly well. Eric is a bit more disappointed when it comes to his mighty Badgers.

Someone was nice on Amazon, I'm at long last getting a toaster,
I think this is what is coming via UPS on Wednesday since I did not order anything.


The best gifts are often surprises. Do you have a registry? How did somebody know you needed a toaster?

The Montclairion was a weekly paper. Had it been a daily paper the novelty of precise delivery would probably have worn off quite quickly.

Yes, probably - and by the nuns who taught the CCD classes I attended. Nuns are pretty cool. Never met a nun I didn't like.

I too was a paperboy... er, uh... paper girl... paper person???

I delivered The Montclarion, a small, local paper. For most of the homes on my route I was unable to throw the paper up to the doorway, so I walked a lot of steps and carefully placed a lot of Montclarions on door mats.

Now I am a speech pathologist, but the first job I remember ever wanting to have was nun. I think I liked the "costumes".

Does anybody cook with tofu? I get it mixed in with stuff occasionally when I go out to an Asian restaurant, and I like the way it's grilled. I've never bought any for home preparation.


Eric does a good tempeh stir fry. It has more body than most forms of tofu so we prefer tempeh to tofu most of the time as a meat substitute.

PLEASE don't use glue traps. They catch many things they were not meant to catch. The outcome in this case could have been much, much worse. 😢

Poison is also indiscriminate and will work its way up the food chain as it makes the target animals much easier for prey to catch them and eat them and get poison into their systems. That leaves snap type which cause suffering. Unfortunately there is no 100% safe method. What ever you use, check at least daily.


+1 regarding poisons like Decon. My sister's cat nearly died from rodent intoxication. A "friend of Mickey" ate some Decon. Puddy ate the friend of Mickey. Puddy got really really really sick and nearly died. I know snap traps seem cruel, but the are least likely to cause collateral damage.

How many times are you going back there Angie????

Countless?


(and have you told Eric yet?)

It has been my experience that, when it comes to the acquisition of new critters, Eric fares better without advance warning...
