6/10/21 - Bedtime

Friday, June 11, 2021

When it comes to computer skills, mine are limited to what I've learned on the job. I'm so old that I learned to type on an manual Underwood typewriter, so I'm very grateful to my Spark friends who found alternate sites and groups to join.

Although it's very warm and humid, I managed to finish mowing the lawn.

Before leaving for work this morning, I glanced out the window to check the backyard, and I spotted a chipmunk in my garden. Grrrr! The little bugger had somehow gotten under the rabbit fence. When I watered tonight, I couldn't figure out where he/she got in. I've got some thin pieces of metal that I'm going to drive into the ground around the fence. That should keep those little trouble makers out - I hope.

Sweet dreams everyone!!!

    Chipmunks are diggers! They will find a way to get in. Good luck with them! Hope the humidity is down by the time I need to mow again. I mowed on Monday and Tuesday. It was brutal. Pretty much wiped me out for the rest of both days! Even walking the dog works up a sweat. And he’s an ambler, he leads with his nose. emoticon

    A great morning here, got some rain, temp. is only 68 right now, but oh the wind, it actually blew the flowers and parts of the stem off my petunia's, hope they will come back. And I am also so wondering what to do, and I sort of agree with SPEDED2, AM ABOUT TO JUST ABOUT READY TO LET IT GO, and I will give anyone that wants my email address and we can keep in touch that way, or message each other thru FB.

    I learned on a manual Underwood, too! Boy, those were the days - hitting the return at the bell, being careful not to hit the keys too hard or they would skip, and trying to fix the mistakes you made when you had carbon in the machine.... We've seen a LOT of changes!

    Trying to sort through all the new stuff takes waaaaayyyyy too much time. I should just give it all up and call it quits.

    Mowing will in the near future with some wickedly hot temps in the forecast. Three weeks ago I had to wear long sleeves and long pants to mow...that's not the case now. Crazy weather.

    We don't have chipmonks. The squirrels and moles do more than their share of damage.

    Stay cool. Stay hydrated. emoticon
