HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY SUPER NEW MOON (FRIDAY)
I hope everyone has a wonderful, peaceful, happy week. It's almost autumn, and night is coming earlier now. I'm seeing nature signs that indicate it's going to be a harsh winter here.
Diane: Thank you once again for starting us off! What signs of winter are you seeing? For some reason, the hummingbirds are now regular visitors to the feeders and we're also seeing the rust-colored ones for the first time this year - I'm not sure if they're Rufous or Allen's - in addition to our year-round Anna's.
PatO: Congrats on the good golf game, but be sure and stay hydrated during the hot spell regardless.
Our wonderful neighbor not only had the snap ring pliers but insisted on replacing the O-rings and putting it all back together, so at least one of the hose reels is working properly. :-)
Lindybird: You're lucky that sweater was still there. :-)
OG: Glad you made it to church today; interesting about the fishing connection. I didn't realize the Solway was so dangerous, but I recall reports of people getting trapped by the tides around the UK back when I was growing up. We have a very small tidal range in this immediate area. Apparently fishing is one of the most dangerous occupations. I remember reading Sebastian Junger's book The Perfect Storm, about the Andrea Gail, which went down off Gloucester, Massachusetts and then seeing the movie, which was pretty darn impressive. Both were riveting. Do hope you hear something from J's docs tomorrow. I'd be inclined to raise hell at this point.
