Made it AGAIN!

Yet another weekend passed in which I was not struck by a meteorite or a bus! So, we must call it a success.

As for the more full discussion of that weekend, however, you're going to have to wait. I walked in to a bunch of junk to do this morning, so it's going to be a while before you get to hear about the DEAD ARMADILLO I found--RIGHT DOWN THE HILL FROM WHERE I LIVE! I had thought we would be able to be bypassed by this invasion of yet ANOTHER slow, dimwitted, nocturnal set of critters, but it appears that we possums now have some competition. But, as I said, you'll have to wait a bit to hear about that. AND about the Great Pear Harvest--we went and picked Boy's tree Saturday after the yard dried out some. We wound up with about 40 giant pears. All of them looked to be about the size of a grapefruit. We'd have had even more if the blasted squirrels and birds and bugs would have left them alone. ANYway, you'll hear about that later.

Wait a minute. I just realize I've told you the two MOST EXCITING things that happened all weekend!! Now all that's left is to hear about laundry.

Oh well. Come back after while and we'll talk about the shiny PENNY I found!

Dang--I gave away the surprise again. Just come back later and we'll all sit around and look at each other.

Are we going to talk about our feelings? If yes, I may suddenly have another appointment I have to go to.

If ice cream will be handed out, I can safely predict the appointment will be cancelled.

Feelings!? What sort of place do you think I run here?

But yes, there will be ice cream.

So, did you see any meteorites? They were supposed to be visible over the weekend. We were out on the boat, but didn't see any. I did see Venus, bright and huge, just before dawn yesterday. Mercury was also supposed to be visible, but I didn't see it.

I don't go out at night anymore now that I know armadillos lurk.

It was cloudy Friday night and I forgot Saturday and Sunday so I missed the big show. But we did get to see fireworks at the ball game. It's very odd seeing fireworks during daylight hours.

From Nate McCord: BTW, your stoopid comment section is tanked again... Add this in for me, will you, on your last post?

"Look! A Badger!"

"Really, I did see a badger, who was not roadkill on Saturday. He was eating a roadkill rabbit when we disturbed his breakfast."

"Later Kenny nearly ran over a herd of 6 antelope because he was yakking on his cell phone."

Rain? You had rain? How novel.

Posted by: Janis at August 14, 2006 02:16 PM

Novel, but welcome. Even if it did make the grass that much taller.

Justin usually tries to mow before work on Friday mornings, but due to rain last week that was out. He finally got the grass cut this morning and now it's pouring again. So he certainly won't get a week off. It'll need mowing again by Friday for sure. Not that I'm really complaining about the rain. I am thankful to have it. And thankful that I'm not the one out mowing the yard.

Would he like to come cut mine? I know I've asked before, but I keep thinking he'll change his mind.

Posted by: Terry Oglesby at August 14, 2006 05:47 PM

Don't brag, Miss Jordana.

Posted by: Janis at August 14, 2006 08:14 PM

I'm in trouble, no not about getting my neck sliced but there's a real clean SOCAL 510 for sale just down the block. I mean it has *NO* rust and the rims are factory stock. Help me Terry, I'm already a Idot and Moron but but but... Datsun 510 in great shape!

Terry, if you asked Justin in March to cut your grass, he might almost be interested -- well not really, but in March he likes being outside and even cutting the grass isn't a burden. By August, he's totally over that.

Janis, I'd be happy to send the rain your way if I could. Usually though, it comes from your way to us.

Posted by: Jordana at August 14, 2006 10:06 PM

Buy it, Tony. The 510 is one of the cars I continue to search for on eBay Motors. Why? Don't I already have a Moron Project? Why yes, I do, but you must remember, I Am A Moron. But I really do like the 510--I think it's that independent rear suspension that does it.

And Jordana, I think we might be able to work a deal on Justin. It might be easier since you seem to have been bitten by the house bug--all this will require is that you move in next door to us. That way he can cut both of our yards without having to drive so far, and you could get to experience once again the grand fun of a long-distance move! I call it a win-win-win situation all around.
