Little Things Happen.

Today, I am supposed to have a repair man put a new mother board in the dishwasher. I hope this one works!! I think the original ones were faulty and it takes all kinds of manipulation to make them work. I hope my new one will be better. Hopefully we are finished with funerals and death and dying in my family. It has been sad. Our Laura got a promotion and has a van to drive to and from work. I am glad she won't be using the subway so much but I think our little Laura driving in NYC. The child has guts. I really miss her. We are having lovely autumn weather and I am enjoying it even though we still need a lot of rain to catch up. Jose and I still walk every morning and it is a pleasure to be up and out and about. I have had a lot of handy men working on the yard. It is tolerable now but I have come to hate squirrels with a passion. We have two pecan trees in the back yard and they are constantly cracking them before they are ripe and carpeting the yard with them. We have yet to get any pecans. I have read that fox urine is the only thing that will keep them away but I don't know any foxes intimately. So glad our friends in Florida are safe.

So much grief to go around.

We have pine squirrels that lately have been throwing hard green pine cones down from the tops of the trees then coming down to carry them away. It sounds like gunshots when the cones hit the roof. Last year a red "town" squirrel was here for awhile, but left. Maybe it got lonely. We called it 'Big Red.'

The squirrels seem to have no natural enemies and the cats and dogs are not nimble enough to catch them. Nadine has ptsd and the sound of pecans on the porch roof drives her crazy.

I wish our squirrels knew about hiding nuts for the winter. They don't have a clue!

Hahha you don’t know any foxes intimately
Sorry you are at war with the squirrels. They are probably so thankful for your tree! I can’t fathom driving in NYC!! Brave chick indeed!!! Kudos to her.
Hope you are doing well.
