When we were in Duluth the grass around lake Superior was grey and crispy, they got rain yesterday and my friend said she cried because they had drought for so long.. we have not had rain for two weeks now, there is a hope for Fri-sat thunderstorm and cool down, aftre last power outage I am really careful what I wish for and use sprinkler instead ⛈️

    7.2 ahhhh 'tis a store!! we dont have Fed Meyer nor Kroger here. We also dont have OTC covid testing kits. FunDad did you notice that kit was made in Ausralia ,yet not available here because of out low population. We have to get on the end of a queue for drive through testing. It wasnt so bad.. I had cold/flu symptoms a week Monday so thought it best to get tested. There was only 4 cars in front of me & it took ages because the tester has the same breed of dogs, so we chatted. 18hrs later I got a negaive text...but still have the cold symptoms. I was late in taking the dog to his park yesterday & hit peak hr traffic on the return home. I wasnt confident in taking my chances in approaching the round-about without sneezing,coughing or just thick headed, so I drove 15mins extra to get to traffic lights. I pretended I was on a scenic tour so enjoyed the water views & the golden flash of colour from the flowering Wattle trees.

    7.5 The continuing story on saving the planet & my $'s.. Instead of using the clothes dryer I toughened up & tolerated the shoulder pain by hanging the washing on the clothesline. The white flannelette sheet was a challenge with only a soiled mark on the bottom where I trod on it. I was late in getting things out so they didnt dry thoroughly. I brought them in & no.. I'd not finish them off in the dryer, I' returned them to the sunshine next day. Miserable pain during the night that woke me 3 times. The sheet was lovely & warm next day when I was to bring it indoors, but on my way out to the garden I knocked my cut finger & oh how it bled... all over the white sheet. Now I'm wasting water as that sheet had to be washed again & this morning I'll hang it on the line once more. Black sheets are a better idea. Irina, sprinklers are banned here because they use too much water in spray drifting. Drip system was ok but now its hand held hose with a trigger nozzle only.

    87 Tropical system off the coast here that's supposed to come towards us this week. I heard the longest thunder in the middle of the night that I think I've ever heard. Even Harper raised her head like "What was THAT???" We haven't had rain here in three days. Strange after a month of daily showers and storms. @adiantum - Yes that is the exact test kit we used. There are three or four different ones. I ordered two of another brand online to be delivered this week so we'd have them to test again on Friday. She is perfectly fine other than no taste or smell (which is driving her nuts). I still have zero symptoms. We are cleaning like crazy and she wears a mask and gloves if she comes out of her bedroom. And we're keeping distance between us.

    My reading this morning was 127. The Cape is in a mini drought, all day yesterday it was cloudy all day and the rains on the mainland never made it to the Cape. On parts of the Cape they have issued a water advisory.

    7.5 FunDad, it's tough to see an injured animal knowing it's not got a happy ending. I thought a lot of this yesterday while in the park hoping the injured Magpie would appear. It's parents did but not junior . Watching me feed the birds was a woman physically & very mentally disabled in a wheelchair. I think she got pleasure from watching as her loud vocals ceased. Occasionally I see paid carers bring their client to lake & park for an outing. Humans are the only animal I know of that care for the disabled.. or do primates? Irina,thanks for mentioning groundhogs.. I just watched a fun video of a man with a family of groundhogs in his garden. Such cute critters. One can have a lovely experience interacting with wild animals. Yesterday I had a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets at the window in front of the desk. Ive created a gap of about 4inch square so I can pass food out to birds as I sit at the pc. A female rainbow comes through the gap & climbs on the clutter or the monitor & screeches at me if I'm not fast enough to pass meat or an apple slice. She will take it from my hand but I dont touch her to spoil the experience. While she is eating, the male is outside getting aggitated running up & down the window sill muttering away, then he will poke his head through the gap & makes what I assume is demands, as she then takes food out to him & returns indoors to her meal.

    7.1 yay.. it's Ahnanimus..such an occasion deserves a happy dance in the moonlight.. even though my birthday suit needs ironing FunDad, your fighting nature. Perhaps stop & think why you bought that place.... Was it to change it? That lake system can hold that number of geese..there has to be enough food to sustain them including mosquitoes & weeds... & sunflower seeds. Another grass story. One of the dog parks I go to was re-turfed last year . The county leveled a section about 25yds x 1000yds . then spread a clay based soil & leveled & compacted that. Then they got this bright idea to cover it in a plastic net like fine fiishing line. Covered that in top soil, spent mushroom compost & turf. Then heavy rain broke the drought causing erosion which exposed the mesh netting. Dogs nails get caught in it, people trip but worse is that birds get caught up in it. Yesterday a Magpie chick came to me for treats but it had that mesh entwined through one foot holding its claws together. It had to hop around & would not be able to hold the perch at night. I rang native animals for advice & the best option was for me to meet them there today to try & catch it to remove the net. A jigsaw of an Australian outback red dirt. road sign reads...

    126 My daughter tested positive with one of the over-the-counter test kits ($42). The only real symptom she has is loss of taste and smell and a slightly stuffy nose (since Tuesday). We're self-quarantining for a dozen days or more. Hopefully my vaccine will do it's job. I had an appointment to go get tested this morning but I don't see the point in it until she's negative. She's quite depressed over this.

    110 My numbers have been out of control the past 10 days or so and I have no clue why. I was over 300 one day mid-day. @adiantum - I may have mentioned this already but there was a goose hanging around a month or so ago with a severely broken wing. The bone was visible and it was just dragging the ground and the bird would constantly bite at it (for weeks) trying to get it off. I called the local bird sanctuary and they pretty much said "it was dead" because it's now vulnerable and a predator would get it and all the other geese would stay away from it. It came around for over a month and the other geese did not abandon it. They also said I could get a cardboard box and catch it and bring it to them. My neighbors tried once but couldn't catch it. It eventually stopped coming around.

    Don't get me started on geese! When I went back to college they sweep the sidewalks twice a day of geese droppings. A friend's 5 year old daughter was attacked by geese, they knocked her over and then the geese fought over her hot dog as she laid on the ground. Stepping and pecking all over her as they fought for the hot dog. My reading this morning was 137.
