Last night, the lady brought us the monthly payment for the house we sold them a few years ago. I took it to their bank first thing this morning and it wasn’t any good. She’ll make it right tomorrow, but why do some people operate in a constant state of carelessness? I’d already learned NOT to deposit her checks. We’d wanted to pick up some groceries, but will have to wait a day now.
I picked up five items when I got home and took them to an antique dealer. I did okay on three, but got ripped off on two. Oh well, it was stuff I’d planned to get rid of anyway, and it DID put some cash in my pocket.
Since the deer have discovered my Jerusalem artichokes behind their four-foot fence, I rigged up a couple tires for growing pursley and put a piece of hardware cloth over it so the deer would have to step on the wire to reach the ‘chokes. On the other side, I just put a piece of the screen so it would gouge them if they rubbed against it. It seemed to work last night anyway.
My most recent round of poverty has given me an epiphany; baked-bean sandwiches are pretty good!
I posted the graduation ceremony program from the year my father graduated on a local history site today. I was surprised how many of the names on the list of graduates I was familiar with. Most are dead, of course.
We gave the dog a bath tonight, then watched her roll and stretch and roll for probably twenty minutes on the two bath towels my wife had put down for her. When she finished, she was so worn out that she’s slept all evening.
Guess that’s it for now; hope all is well in your world. © 2013-
