“Never fire a laser at a mirror.”

Last night was seasonably cold. When I woke up, the house was down to 64˚, too cold for me. I grabbed my sweatshirt and turned on the heat to warm the house. Coffee helped to warm me.

The day is beautiful with a bright, squint your eyes sort of sun and deep blue skies. A few thin branches high in the oak trees are swaying. Dead leaves are falling, some slowly, some far more quickly to the ground. The bird feeders need my attention. I also need to fill the suet feeders.

I took my time this morning. Usually I am quick to get my papers and to take Miss Gracie out to the back yard. Instead, I sat inside for while finishing a book. When I finally did go out, I met my friend Tony walking Darcie, his westie. We chatted, and he helped me empty my trunk of seeds and canned animal food. I saw a dead rabbit in the space between my house and my neighbor’s house. Sadly, I think it is rabbit I came to know. It visited my yard all summer. Tony offered to bag the rabbit so I could take it to the dump, but I knew I’d have trouble doing that so I thanked him and said I’d bury it or have my neighbor bury it. I’m going to miss my rabbit.

YouTube is on. I’ve been watching those black and white science fiction movies from the 50’s all morning. The Giant Claw is my favorite so far. It was awful, even laughable, but that’s its best feature. The giant claw belongs to a giant bird with eyes which never move. It eats planes, trains, cars and people. It scooped parachutists from the sky with its mouth. The movie has all the best elements: a hero, his new found love, a scientist of sorts, city crowd scenes where men wearing overcoats and fedoras run along side women wearing dresses, hats and heels, all trying to escape the falling buildings destroyed by the bird. I loved this movie.

I have nothing planned for today, and that’s just fine with me.

    Its football Tuesday, and I cant watch Tottenham at Real Madrid because stupid fake news Fox put the game on their stupid Fox 2 Sports which Comcast doesn’t carry. Oh but I could buy their stupid premium stupid station. Radio coverage for me

    Meanwhile Birgit’s BVB are off to Apoel hoping for a result.

    And Christer’s Sweden got the very short straw and drew Italy in the UEFA playoff for the World Cup in Russia next year.

    Come on you Spurs

    (Did I mention that I hate Fox ?)

      My Dear Hedley,
      I hate Fox on general principals, not for anything specific. I know radio coverage just doesn’t do it. In my youth, I’d listen to the Celtics play as the games were not often on TV. Basketball just wasn’t basketball when you couldn’t see it. I figure it is the same for football.

      Well, the US me, though, can watch the games of teams heading to the World Cup.

      Radio soccer here too, Dortmund 0:0 and Tottenham 1:0 (?) so far. KTCC music later.

      I guess Italy wasn’t what we were hoping for but to be honest, they haven’t been that great lately πŸ™‚ and now when they finally don’t build the team around one player, Zlatan; they actually might play footbal again with all team members πŸ™‚

      Fox is seen as a big joke over here, especially their news πŸ™‚

    We’ll have frost tonight and I wouldn’ty be surprised if it will fall down to 14F before the night is over. It is already close to 32F and it isn’t that long ago the sun set. I acn’t pretend I’m looking forward to scraping the car windows tomorrow morning πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    People are bad att gossiping here in the village, turns out that two villagers have died this month and I’ve just heard about it a month and two weeks after it happened. I guess too many new people have moved in here (well there are only 20 houses so it isn’t that many new ones to be honest) so they don’t know people here well enough to spread the news.

    I’m making rice porridge here, I thought it fitted well with the nasty cold evening, it will turn toeΒ΄wards warmer again the next day when a new low pressure from You arrives here πŸ™‚

    Have a great day!

      Some places in the western part of the state have had frost already. We are still too warm though the nights have been chilly.

      It hated having to scrape the windows. It was cold to stand there.

      The cape used to be the same where everyone know everyone else’s business, but it has gotten too big now for that, People still gossip but to fewer people.

      We’ll be warm the rest of the week. Int will be a wonderful weekend.

      Have a great evening!
