    yes the neighbour dogs usually carry on if a is in their yard... (we live in the bears' yard, actually ) . bears don't fear much and i respect that. as in, keep out of their way i think the forest fires this summer displaced a lot of wild critturs

    an unbelievable set of techno-haywire mad i am not very bright today, the power being out since yesterday early a.m. was tolerable until i was wide awake at 4 still in the dark this morning ... and wondering... what if the community water reservoir goes dry because the pump can't work (being electric). what if the drain system at my house backs up because *that* pump can't work... what if the week's supply of meats etc. in the freezer thaw then freeze again when the power is finally restored but what if the power is out forever i'll need to get more canisters of propane for the camp stove, and buy a new deep-cycle battery to run the wifi/router-thing and a light at night (because that quit too). what if - WHAT IF ... *wtf* why couldn't i fall back to sleep i heard the wind-up clocks chime the half-hour between then and just after 6 when glory be i heard my printer hum to life and a night-light came on. i got up to plug in the router, was looked at by a sleepy cat, comfy in a box of papers i ought to sort but have to put the top layer of the house, and me, in order first and cook some meats etc. that did thaw a bit on the plus side, at least yesterday was sunny and I tried out my new wee solar charger to keep my iPod active for stuff that doesn't require internet

    How does Tuesday do that wh-oh bad tree! Poor Are the chestnuts worth keeping? Rain continues, sometimes teeming Light drizzle not too bad, temps warm <---- perfect for. My cat spent all of summer outdoors, has resigned herself to staying in on rainy nights. She avoids any little bed we put for her. Last night she slept on my knitting needle case I'd left on the work table. It is a roll of corduroy. Quite a cozy mattress?!

    i glanced out the window early to be met with a gaze from a doe and her rather large fawn. i thought they lost their spots soon enough, this one looks almost as big as its mama they went back to nibbling at the lawn/grassy bit until un-nerved by the human staring at them ; hurried away into the woods. now we have to look Monday in the face
