All Natural Pest ~ Deer ~ Sky ~ Gilmore Gas ~ Raspberry Tarts & Chocolate Custard


Good 49º clear sunny morning. We topped at 76º yesterday. Today is "supposed" to be warmer.


Yesterday the All Natural Pest Control guy, Michael, came by. He filled the bait boxes for the ground squirrels. I will see him again in a couple weeks. I have been using All Natural for a long time. Good company!

By late morning the gloom was lifting...



A couple deer came to munch grass ...




Yesterday I picked up Sami again at school and went home to wait for Tucker. On Monday when I picked her up there was a line of cars through the school parking lot. A lady with a two-way radio walked up to me and asked who I was picking up. I said Sami, and she smiled and said, "Oh, you must be Bobo!" Yes ma'am. LOL

Gilmore Gas eventually after time became Mobil ... Here is an interesting story:
