Stuff In Lloyd Today
This is a Georgia Thumper. It is about three and one half inches long. I should have just smashed it but I didn't. The chickens won't eat them. That's how big and scary they are.
Speaking of chickens, here's some of the teenagers. Are they always going to be teenagers? Yes. I think so. From the front we have either Tipsy or Topsy, not sure which, but he's a rooster. Above him we have Maizey. Who is a rooster. Above him is uh, well. I'm not sure. I think Bertha. Behind her you can see part of Baby. She's a hen.
Banana spider. Suddenly, I am seeing them everywhere. They are still young and small and have not started mating yet. But they're building the shit out of some webs.
My clean refrigerator! In real life, it is blinding! It took me two hours to clean that sucker. That's how bad it was. My problem, when I finish cleaning everything, is always putting it back together. Today it went more smoothly than usual. I have no idea why. I also have no idea why we have three bottles of Caesar Parmesan yogurt dressing. But we do. I mean, it's good but mostly I just make vinaigrette.
There's a lot more stuff in Lloyd. There's even a lot more stuff right here where I live. But that's all I feel like showing you right now. Mr. Moon is on his way home and we're going to eat some black-eyed peas and rice and salad. We were going to eat asparagus as well but when I went to get it out of the very clean refrigerator, I saw that sadly, it had started the slime process so the chickens got it. That's what those teenager chickens are eating up there in that picture. They'd rather have Doritos. In this, they are not unlike human teenagers.
It's been a good day. Lon and Lis are coming to spend the night tomorrow night and I'm excited about that and also, I put a deposit down on a little place to stay on St. George Island in October. WHOO-HOO! The kids can come and go as they please and Mr. Moon may or may not be around due to hunting obligations but I am going to be there every second. I am inordinately excited about this.
I'll probably say something tomorrow about the Penn State report but for tonight, no. Nothing I say or think is going to make any difference anyway.
Right now I'm just happy to be in Lloyd, even with the ungodly scary mosquitoes and the Georgia Thumpers and three bottles of Caesar Parmesan salad dressing, not to mention a clean refrigerator and friends coming tomorrow and something grand to look forward to in a few months. And Jessie Moon will be coming home for a visit at the end of the month.
Good stuff in Lloyd today.
