I had a couple of comments last week. My daughter explained that the Bambis not only taste good but that’s what they get for eating her plants! A good point. Arline does Samaritan’s Purse, too, and offered to give me a tour of Heifer International Headquarters if I ever get to Missouri. I’d like that. She also asked what you call “groups of rabbits.” Bunnymonium (Pandemonium with hops!).
I’ve included the picture of a bunny stretching way high to eat from a blooming desert tree…or maybe that was a dessert tree?
We had a rare but wonderful rainy day Sunday. It was one of those nice soaking rains that didn’t take the desert floor with it to deposit it somewhere else in a dune pile. It was sunny but very crisp this morning on my walk the two miles around North Ranch, more like a Michigan fall day that I always enjoyed.
My house already looks decorated on the outside and thankfully, I am at the end of my block so not so many people have to look at it. I get really tired of the birds flying over my back and front porches and making poop decks out of them so I have hung all my old CDs along the roof to fly in the wind. That seems to scare the birds off most of the time. But we have quite a lot of windy days so the CDs flip and flop in the wind and come down fairly easy so my first morning duty is collecting wayward CDs. Ah well.
I’m not sure you can see it in the picture with the CDs, but I also hang gallon-size plastic freezer bags just outside my two house doors and my office door. They are about a third filled with water and several pennies. These are supposed to keep the flies out of the house. We do have flies occasionally and they are annoying, but with these bags outside the door, they don’t seem to come inside. I’ve been told it has something with their eye prisms and the water reflections. Not sure what the pennies do!
Since I am writing this on Tuesday the 23rd, I wish myself a Happy Birthday. I was surprised to get all kinds of greetings through Facebook yesterday and today. I am not particularly active with that account but it is nice that they remind everyone when birthdays arrive, and even nicer that friends and family pay attention. What do I have in common with Billy the Kid, Boris Karloff, and Harpo Marx? A birthday. Hmmm.
Well, that’s about all that is happening in my life this week. Exciting huh! Have a great Thanksgiving Day. God Bless until next week.
