Yesterday 'my' goosies came back! Every year like clock work they fly in, honking, and sit on the barn roof awaiting the rest of the family. (I know it's "geese" .... don't give me a bad time!) They are friendly to me, probably because there is cracked corn out there for them. They will nest, eggs will hatch in the Spring, and off they will go until next year. I always enjoy their visits! Hi goosie gooses!


Yesterday was haircut day. Had fun at the shop with Leah and the 'girls'. We did a lot of laughing! Then the market, post office, and to Ace. I showed Dave at Ace the good job the WD40 did keeping out the critters. Told him to pass it on. He did say he's never had a problem, but then he said he sprays off his engine with WD40 and wipes it down periodically. DUH, Dave you invented this!!!!

Then a drive out to Jeannie and Bill's to deliver her the Avon I had ordered from Kristen. It was one of those great deals... buy one and get two free and free shipping! Zowie. Anyway, Jeannie and I had a wine and chatted. Such a great view from their top of the hill house! I didn't take any pictures but the clouds were many shades of grey and pink and yellow.

All I know. Phone guy supposed to be here today, maybe, to transfer the phone lines from the old pole to the new pole. Then I have to notify power company to take out the old pole. Frank (my neighbor) is going to use the pole to repair our bridge down by the main road.

Nuff said. Happy Thursday. Ciao.
