Critters in the house

We have some kind of critter in the house. I went to investigate after hearing noises and saw what I think was a baby squirrel running across the room. I've got the doors to the decks open now - even though it's dark and pretty cool. I'm just hoping it goes away. Neither Dog of COG, nor Cat of COG seems to have noticed.

Startling Insight

This morning I was humming to myself the nursery tune, Three Blind Mice. I was humming it because of an Event with the Cat of COG, about which I will not be too specific.

Anyway, I suddenly realized that the song is about moles, not mice. A mole is a blind mouse with a rudimentary tail. Is this something everyone else has known since childhood? But I missed it until now?

Does everyone else also know why they were running after the Farmer's wife? 'Cause I've always wondered.

Friday Pet Blogging - Dogs of France

French dogs are wonderful. I think it's because they are well socialized from puppyhood. You see them everywhere - even restaurants. They don't bark;they don't jump up;they are happy and friendly but not intrusive or aggressive. Here are some dogs we saw this summer. The first picture - the one with Sister Rose's hand in it- is of Bruce, our favorite French dog.

Patrick Blanc, Vertical Garden interview in Paris

Sister Rose and I saw one of these walls in Cahor. Could we do this to the front of our house?

And how did you waste time last night....?

I did this color quiz. I scored 11, which disappointed me as 0 is perfect. But then I found out that the scores are from 0 to 99 and that, for my age and gender, I did well.

What's your Viking Name

Mine is Astrid the Voracious. What's yours?

Lazy Day

No picking at Appleton Farm this Saturday, as we had the dregs of Hurricane Hanna all day. Heavy rain and wind all day. Didn't do much. Sunday has dawned bright, dry and windy.
