Waspinator! ~ Pond ~ Incoming Storm? ~ Selleck in a Pink Bikini? ~ Baby Born w/ 6 Legs ~ Cherry Cheesecake Day

Good 48º clear sunny morning.

Last year on Sunday it was 22º and on Monday it was 33º. WHAT a difference! Yesterday warmed to 93º and was 21% humidity. Still miserable for this Oregonad!

Yesterday I went to Bi-Mart where I got some plants for the porch pots.... basil and some spicy basil. Then to the Grange, where I got flat leaf parsley, catnip for Mr. Happypants, spinach, collard greens, and yellow zucchini. I also picked up some "Waspinators". I hung them on the front porch... now we wait to see if they work...

I have to admit, it's not that attractive hanging there, but if it gets rid of the wasps and yellow-jackets... yeah!

After I came home Maggie and I went to the pond to retrieve the styrofoam blocks that the first owner stuck together, covered with outdoor carpeting and anchored in the middle of the pond so the geese could make a nest on it. Over the last 14 years it has broken loose and broken apart.

I noticed there is a tree down in the pond.... will have to get someone up there to get it out and cut up....

By 4pm the clouds were starting to come in. Rain predicted. Pressure was dropping... and then next two at 6pm and 7pm...

1945Adolf Hitler's designated successor Hermann Göring sends him a telegram asking permission to take leadership of the Third Reich, which causes Hitler to replace him with Joseph Goebbels and Karl Dönitz.

I was watching TV and this Travelosity commercial came on.. towards the end there was this man laying on the beach in a pink bikini bottom with a dog.... now if this isn't Tom Selleck I'll bite ..... something! This is just WRONG!

It always amuses me when a celebrity, who doesn't normally say anything political, does say something political that makes me laugh. Last night watching a commedy show with Jeff Foxworthy and some other guy and Larry The Cable Guy... they were talking about viagra and making jokes and
Larry said, "Al Gore took viagra ... and he grew 3 inches."
OMG.................................. I was laughing like crazy!
(think about it guys..... d**k head!)

A baby boy in Pakistan was born with 6 legs ....

He is a modern day miracle.... surgery was successful.

By the way, no rain last night. Thunderboomers predicted for today. We shall see...... Pressure is up not down.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Tree trimmers back today and I am going to mow, again! Ciao.

OMG! If that is Tom Selleck, what was he thinkin????? The word "wrong" just isn't strong enough. ICK.
Sure hope the waspinators work for you. Ours do seem to help. Thank goodness.
The baby with six legs is an absolute miracle. Wow. You and I have already talked about it, so not much more to say, but how incredible that the doctors were able to perform a surgery like that.
Maybe your tree guys can pull that fallen tree out of your pond when they show up today. How could they resist not helping you!
Have a wonderful day mowing, etc. Chat later. xo

Yes, wrong about Tom, but he's probably made a s**t load of $$ from it. It has people talking...
As for the tree in the pond, the tree guys don't have waders.. it's pretty deep there.We'll wait until the water goes down a bit in the summer. U R funny!!! xo
