These Are Silly

And therefore I must share them.

I have a rock garden. Last week three of them died.

I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car’s headlights and tell you exactly which way it’s coming.

I shot an arrow into the air, and it stuck.

It’s been a lovely, warm sunny day. This afternoon I got outside and trimmed the lemon and orange trees in the back yard so we have a little more room. The branches were encroaching the patio and the fruits were moldering on the ground. Unfortunately, we cannot enjoy the fruit because the exterminator last year dumped the remaining poison out under the trees. The poison is not water-soluble (thus probably has not been washed away in winter rains), so we just don’t want to take any chances. But they look pretty and the blooms smell nice (but not the rotting fruit. Rotting citrus is sharp and nasty.)

How’s your day been?

    I caucused today. I had an echo and EKG done today. Now I’m at my fav writing cafe. The weather is beautiful. And my son wants to know if people go on forever or if they’re like the dinosaurs and will go away like them.

    Tuesday’s a good day.

    Love your quotes! Very cute. As I began reading about your citrus trees I was picturing freshly squeezed orange juice and delicious lemonade. Then I read about the exterminator! What were they thinking? Shouldn’t they have disposed of their remaining chemicals in a more eco friendly way? What a shame!
