    Cut down the trees!


    Just kidding.

    I seem to remember a nature show on PBS where tree frogs were such a problem that whole neighborhoods were losing sleep.

    ok, NF... seriously. A guy bangs on your door at 1 am, you CALL THE COPS! Seriously. If he's so out of it he bangs on the door, he might bang on a window or break some glass... or something else.

    I didn't even open the door. It's not going to happen at one in the morning. He wouldn't go away, though and he just kept banging. Really freaked me out so I called my daughter and her and her husband came over. He checked the backyard and stuff, but the guy was gone.

    The new neighbor across the street (which may very well be on crack) said that that guy had banged on his door two nights ago at three in the morning. He told him he was gonna pop a cap in his ass. He said that he went outside when he saw him banging on my door and was going to take him out if he tried to break in. But I could of sworn that he wasn't even there at the time. Very strange, I tell you. Not sure which guy to be more scared of. lol
    he's a serial banger!!!

    I just had bangers who want to clean my carpet... the bastards. Told 'em to go away. Brand new carpet!!!

    I'm thinkin' I might have to be takin' a weekender nap.....

    I'm going to do more editing this weekend. Working on the query for my story, I think I found ways to make it moar better.

    The rest of you funners workin' on anything good?

    Cats can be great weapons.

    1) Grasp cat firmly by tail

    2) Swing quickly around your head to build up speed

    3) Whack offender in the face with cat(the cat will take care of the rest)

    note:

    BE SURE to complete steps in rapid succession!

    I have the TV news on. They're doing a story on the London Olympics.

    It's hard to believe it's time for another Olympics.

    KILL THE GNATS!

    I went on a six mile walk with hubs last night and I walked right into a swarm. I think I swallowed several of them. And now my knees hurt. Not from the gnats, from the walk.

    Aside: my orchard is infested with lady bugs, which is good because they eat aphids and aphids are like less mobile gnats. KILL THE APHIDS!

And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece of a big, big universe and that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They're gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub." ~ Beasts of the Southern Wild

    Gnats are an excellent source of nutrients. The only problem is, you have to swallow thousands and thousands of them.

    So, where are you off to now, Bill? In the fall, I mean.

    I know what's you going to do this summer . . . hang around the pool, pretend you're writing, read a little, and hit on girls. That's what I would do anyway.

    The cats have all weaseled their way into my room, I think they are hiding from the serial banger. I think I'll trade 'em in for ninja cats.

    good day to you, Rob.
