    Stellars…


    Hickory horned devil red, the larva of the regal or royal walnut moth, Citheronia regalis (Fabricius), which is one of the largest moths…

    Ah well, never a dull moment. I opened the front door to make sure our fire that was burning off yard waste was done and a wren that was perching in the wreath on the door flew in. Dogs, cats people and a bird fluttering all over the house in varying stages of frenzy. Had to segregate the cats to other rooms, calm down the dogs and try to catch the bird.

    Bird ended up flying into an dark room and that’s where we left it. About 10 minutes ago it flew out and onto a counter where I could get it and take it outside – dogs are still looking for it.

      They thought you got them a new wind-up toy!

      My cat, Mr. Gee, at the moment is doing his best to pull out my foot rest stashed under there. Having asked him what the purpose of his endeavor was, he refused to respond.

        “…under there…” meaning under my desk. It’s late and I’m yawning. So what am I doing still up? G’nite!

        The big 24-pounder decided that where he really, really, REALLY wanted to be last night was between me and my body pillow, head under my chin and claws, every so often, in my chest. We’re here for their comfort and revel in their infrequent shows of appreciation…which i think are mostly staged.

      You etc your fun for free in the country! I’m rethinking that wreath by the front door now.

      We had a mouse get in the house once. What fun. Two very large labs (110 lbs and 85 lbs) and two smaller dogs all running trying to catch it. The scene was similar to the scene in Christmas Vacation, rearranging furniture, knocking over tables, etc.

        Mice are more or less common in the house but with three cats and a terrierist they generally end up disassembled. Great fun watching the terrierist go from spring-loaded lapdog to the Frenetic Hulk though.

      Wrens will do crazy stunts like that! I love wrens! Sorry you had to chase it all over the house, though!

        Considering who else was chasing it we were the lessers of all evils. We’ve had some nest in the garage.

        We have a horizontal stack of short PVC pipes we used as planters for trees and the wrens like to nest in those. Every now and then they’ll nest in the purple martin and bluebird houses.

      They closed 413 Waffle Houses in Georgia! Waffle House never closes!

        Yes, especially since the Waffle House helps so much in devastated areas during emergencies.

        Hi guys, can you spell L-I-A-B-I-L-I-T-Y? I’m sure they didn’t want to but the tort lawyers are suffering with fewer people out there doing fewer tortious acts. Traffic accidents, slip and falls, you name the ambulance chaser act and they’re waaaaay down, the lawyers are hungry…maybe those are lawyers and not vultures circling our house?

        I’m seriously waiting for the first tort lawyer to break the logjam by advertising for patients who were injured by the ‘negligence’ of someone in the service industry who allegedly infected the injured party.

    Of course this was one of the many unnecessary items Nance wanted in the coronavirus mitigation bill…

    Remember our discussion about bread and yeast etc. the other day? I posted this:

    Further to our discussion about bread, sour dough, yeast etc. If you are running low on yeast, when you are making bread: After rising and before baking take a walnut size piece of the dough, put in a separate bowl and add a cup of flour and a cup of water. Leave on the counter or in the frig (depending how soon you want to bake again) and it will create a sponge for your next batch of bread. At first it won’t be sour, but will be over time. A video about making no-knead bread, and the sponge technique.

    Here’s the follow-up video: making your next loaf of bread from the dough you saved from the first loaf:

    Don’t forget to save a knob of dough from this loaf for your next one!

    I am watching Angel and the Badman with John Wayne. I have several copies of the movie, but they are all pretty rough. They really cleaned this up so it is very clear. So, I can overlook the commercial breaks. This has been one of my favorite movies. 🙂
