My curious cat

Everyone knows that cats are curious, but I have one that out snoops them all. I went shopping this morning and when I came home I put my packages on the bed and spread out my purchases. I put all the plastic bags away except one that had a pair of socks in it that I was planning to return because I realized they were not cotton.

I was sitting at my computer a little later when I heard some rustling noises and a pitiful little cry and I looked up to see this.

She had her head and one leg through the handle and was dragging that pair of socks around trying to get out!

The Joys of Home Ownership

After months of fighting sluggish drains, I finally took action this week and contracted to have the sewer line from the house to the main replaced. I lost a shrub that had been planted over the old line, but the new one is on a slightly different course to keep it as far away from the neighbor's
trees as possible. I am worried about the cedar tree but I think they stayed far enough away from it that the root system should be okay.
Fortunately, I had no landscaping so this great gash through the yard didn't do anything but disturb the weeds.
