I’ve been away so long WordPress changed the format on my home page, and I don’t think I like it. I guess I’ll get over it, but I can’t help but feel it’s their little way of punishing me for being a negligent blogger.
Today I made a doggie dooley (I’m sure that name is trademarked or something so here’s a link to keep from getting sued. Or something.) I hope it works because the piles of dog shit really add up fast. I’ve considered bagging it and selling it to people with enemies, but I might get it all back in flaming little bags. I’m also hoping my dogs are smart enough to stay out of if ‘cuz Lord knows they weren’t smart enough to use the pet door I installed. It took them several days to get the hang of it and that was more than a little disappointing.
I also hauled 8 five gallon buckets of pea gravel from my van to my back yard. Why was the gravel in 5 gallon buckets? Uh…the highway department has two big piles of gravel in town that they “forgot” about. One of the highway department guys said I could have some. Define “some”. The area by my back steps turns into the biggest, slickest mud pit every time it rains/snows/thaws/melts, and more often than I care to think about I end up on my knees/ass/elbows in the mud. I’m hoping to get enough gravel to make a nice walkway before I get caught and have to go to jail.
Michele’s still here and we’re still having fun. She won the boot that was sponsored by the Spaghetti Western (by artist Berna Ost). I admired that boot all summer and never bought a ticket. Ah…such is life.
I have some stories to tell and some catching up to do, but there’s work to be done around my house and I need to concentrate on that while I still have help.
