This & That
Who feeds a cat at two in the morning and she isn't even mine? I was watching the indoor/outdoor thermometer and the degrees were heading to freezing. When I went out to drip my faucet Miss Daisy came up behind me meowing. She looks to be going to give birth to about eight soon. Remember she belongs to the neighbors but lives at my house and eats at John's house and probably anywhere else she can. What was she doing up at two A.M. in the cold? I'm doing laundry this morning. Having a hard time getting used to my new machine. It makes odd noises compared to my old old one that finally bit the dust. The instructions say to put the clothes in clumps around the agitator. That just seems so wrong when I have been careful to spread them out around it for so many years. I'm an old dog and I don't LIKE new tricks. I was feeling fairly smug after my neighbor's on each side had wind damage to their roof after the day of hard wind last week. Until my neighbor called me to his yard and pointed out a little damage to my roof. He had a bird's eye view while repairing his. He has promised to repair mine when he gets a day off from his job as prison guard. Nice to have nice neighbors. Of course I will pay him but it won't be like hiring a roofing company. Speaking of nice people (well sort of) the banker called wanting to return John's gate key to the ranch. John told him just drop it in the mail and we promised to keep watching for the exotic deer and if we see it we will call him at once. Now to go put my potatoes on to bake. Wow! I'm cooking today, broiled steak, baked potatos, and salad.
