When: Late-afternoon Thursday
Weather: High 40’s!! Mostly cloudy with very limited sun
- Abbreviated walk: I was a little bit sick today. Not horribly sick, but enough that my voice made it impossible to hide. I chose not to take the extra leg I have been taking to try and get my walk over 4 miles. If I wrote “abb wk”, it would have been abbreviated, but it would have left the impression I was doing lots of situps this week.
- Multiple leaf drops: My daughter has raked twice. I have raked once. And, we are fixin’ to need one more raking. The neighbor has not raked at all. I am sure we are getting some of her leaves introduced into our yard as an ongoing gift. The pine needles were heaviest in the earlier drops. The rain visited before the last raking. The trash man felt those as he threw them in the back of the truck.
- Animal droppings: It seems not everyone is capable of cleaning up after their dog. I know many do, but a few don’t. Possibly, I am falsely accusing the innocent. There are coyotes, bobcats, and other various creatures running around. If I cared to learn my “skat”, I might be able to determine which critter owns what. I feel confident I can identify most dog droppings. There are other “leavings” that seem to be composed of hair. The most interesting one is a dropping containing numerous “pumpkin seeds”.
