Morning GN. Pretty much slept through Friday.

Here’s the story:

I had a very nice long sleep but woke up VERY early on Thursday morning. So, by the time I got to work on Thursday night, I’d been up for a long time.

I tried my best not to get distracted and dilly-dally and/or jibber-jabber while at work. Mostly managed that. By the time I was ready for The Big Route, I was pretty tired though, so Harper, being worried about me, decided to get ready and go with me, which, these days, with her adjustments she’s making to not having any MS treatments anymore--at least for now--is a pretty big deal.

I got started on The Big Route. and she messaged me that she was ready to go. So I’d just finished delivering the mail cart to the PO, and had gone up the hill and was getting started on the main body of The Big Route, so I was just a few minutes from home, so I got the car ready so she could sit in the front seat (of the old wreck I’m still using) and went and got her. So we did the rest of the route together.

We had fun talking about stuff. Afterwards, we got donuts.

Then I slept for 14 hours, so that’s how I missed most of Friday.

I’m glad that Harper is there to keep you company, Dv8.

So yeah,

Kinda missed out on Friday, but I did check back on the thread and commented a bit here and there.

When I think of BTO, I always think of this song:

That’s not a bad tune. They never made it super big, but they were good.

Have you ever heard the slow version that they recorded? It’s interesting.

Happy Guilty Bunny Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8 (and Harper!)!

dv8 -- glad you had Harper with you on The Big Route. It wouldn’t do for you to fall asleep while driving.

We had some workers out this week removing the chain link fence that is partially down our backyard slope, as well as clearing out a bunch of unwanted and overgrown plants. We’ll plant the clear areas with native plants, we just have to work with Teh Older to come up with the planting mix. It’s amazing what a difference it makes in both our view and the feeling of openness. Here’s a picture from many years ago.

And here’s a pic of the same area today. Yes, it does make the houses more visible, but we’re also better able to enjoy the sunsets.

Hi Mac! I hope you and Little Mouse are doing well.
One of the plants that Mrs. Paddy wants to add to the hillside is manzanita. It stays green year ’round so the hill will not look dead in the summer.

Does look better, Paddy -- I’m still seeing the chain link fence up -- did you just remove or replace part of it?

The neighbor put up a chain link fence running all the way down to the bottom. Ours ended at the trunk of the pine tree. So for awhile, there were two layers of chain link fence for that one portion.

And some time this morning I had to go get back on TOR.
