Remember momma raccoon and her four babies? I saw hide nor hair of them all summer. Last Saturday, I saw all four babies crossing the road at the corner of my property. They were cute little, balls of 6 month old furr. They were also looking for dinner. What this means is, momma, poppa, and four babies living in the immediate vicinity of my chicken coop. Not normally a problem, but there is the odd night where the coop is either not locked up at all, or not locked up until very late.
Raccoons + chickens = dead chickens.
Hobbes has declared that we may never go on vacation again. He is a lap kitty that needs people. He had about 24 hours of limited human contact when we went to San Francisco. If it hadn't been for our neighbors, he would have had none for those 24 hours. Then Tom came home from college and rescued him by staying at the house. To punish me for leaving him, he gave me a big chomp on the arm. He got in trouble for it. Then we kissed and made up.
My iMac has been having nervous breakdowns. It is my primary computer. Blogging becomes nearly impossible when it has a fit. I can use our ancient PC, but I don't have any access to pictures on it. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, the Mac has moments of clarity (like now). That means it isn't a priority to get fixed, because it's only down sometimes. One of the kids took this picture to show me what it's doing when it flips out. I have yet to witness it. If you are a Mac person and recognize this color combo (gray and green), followed by a completely white screen, let me know.
