This may be the lamest post ever; humor me, and go with it.
It rained this week -sweet, glorious rain! The temperatures also dropped
and are below average this week, which I don't know about you, but this
makes me so happy I could almost cry. I'm just thrilled that it finally
rained and hope it doesn't stop the remainder of the week or month for
that matter because we need it.
2. My neighbor Jeff brought me some tomatoes this week. This is the
second time he has given me tomatoes this year. He also ran someone off
from my parking spot a couple of Sundays ago. Our neighbor down the
street has a gathering of folks three of four times a year and if you
are nor at home when the guest start arriving, then beware because your
parking spot will probably be taken from you. I didn't know there was
going to be a party on this particular evening (I guess it was to
celebrate the Fourth) and when I pulled on to my street, I thought, oh
no, there had better not be anyone in my spot. There wasn't. When I got
out of the car, Jeff came over and told me he had just ran someone off
from my spot. He was going to pull my garbage can out front to block the
spot had I not arrived home when I did. He is a good neighbor.
3. My neighbor Charlie has not one, but three Porches. My car needs
duct tape to function while my next-door neighbor has about $200K worth
of car. Five Points is a little crazy like that.
4. It's been over four weeks since I last mowed the lawn. It doesn't
need it. Lack of rain equals lack of grass. The grass is so dry that it
makes a crunching sound when you walk on it and is also as brown as
brown can be. I'm sure it will do a little growing this week since we
received some rain and I'll be back to mowing in no time.
5. There are five new kittens across the street. They were born on
June 6 and are not the kittens that were conceived outside my window
seeing as how the kittens conceived outside my window are probably still
gestating. How long is a cat pregnancy anyway? Maybe they aren't still
gestating; but, at any rate, the cat across the street was knocked up
before there was a crazy cat night outside my window. Four of the five
kittens are some combination of black and white and one is a tabby. The
tabby is the prettiest one. If you are looking for a cat let me know and
I can tell my neighbors. The Tide and I will not be taking one.
