Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Blue skies abound. There's a brisk breeze and the temps are coolish right now. We had about 2 seconds worth of rain last night and one boom of thunder after which the moon shone bright in a clear night sky.
I have almost finished a purse for a friend. The pattern is one I could actually follow! (I have a difficult time following written directions unless there are a LOT of pictures to go along with.) I have done a slight modification to she can use it two ways, i.e. with or without the shoulder strap. It's for her upcoming trip to Alaska.
I actually tagged a tree rat (squirrel to those of you who think they are so cute) yesterday with my BB pistol. Got it right in the chest. Didn't kill it obviously since it ran, paused, rubbed chest, ran, paused, rubbed chest, ran to the nearest tall tree and climbed. Wonder if it will remember to stay away from the bird feeders. Do tree rats have memories other than where they buried nuts? Hmmm.
It's Monday! OMG another week has gone by already. Of course I mean last week. It is so true that the older you get the faster time goes by. I think of all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do. There isn't enough time, dammit.

Soooo....since time is wastin' I guess I'd better get a move on and do something, even if it's wrong.

What I really need is minions.....sigh

Minions? Do they go good in soup?

I do know what you mean about time flying by...seems like I lose a little more ground each and every day!

You have a great day, my friend!

When you find those minions, send some up my way to Pennsylvania, if they will work for the fun of it.
I know that being a farmers daughter, I never see what I've acomplished, I only see what's left to be done. And, we NEVER get done, we just quit.
Have a great day.

In my experience the only lessons tree rats, other wise known as those @#$%^&*() pains in the rear, learn is to avoid the source of the inflicted pain. I have actually knocked a couple of them out of the tree with my bb gun, only to see them jump up and head back up the tree. I now use low power 22 shorts, neighbors are too close for anything else. They don't get up any more.

HJ...seems like I lose ground faster every day.

Sharon...Yup, never done. Glad you stopped by.

Bob....my tree rats are becoming immune to the BB's and just keep on eating even if I hit one. Guess I'll have to get something a little more powerful and do some target practice. Thanks for coming by.
