Losing it

Lost all track of time yesterday but got a lot of work
done. It was one of those perfect spring days with the
blue skies and plenty of sun. Not that some didn’t try
to ruin it.

Yes, even though it wasn’t that hot it seemed like all
the critters had problems. Even the feral cat had an
attitude and stuck his tongue out at me before putting
his tail in the air and scampering off.

It was almost as if he thought I couldn’t run to get
him. While I am a skinny, older redneck, I can run
pretty good for about 10 feet!

And the cat wasn’t alone. Even the pigeons got into the
act. They landed on a neighboring roof and waited to see
if I would wash the wife’s car so they could dive bomb
it when I was done and leave us another multi-colored
present on the hood.

But I fooled them because the car didn’t get washed! We
did get a lot of brush removed, bundled, and ready for
disposal tomorrow. Even though I drank several glasses
of lemonade it all went into soaking my shirt instead of
slacking my thirst.

Today looks to be more of the same in the never ending
quest to keep ahead of the weeds, small trees, and
felonious critters. We should now be back to regular
posting as too many days like yesterday and I’d be in
need of paramedics and a floor jack.

Enjoy the day, it’s the only one we get.
Comments are always welcome.

    The cat’s coloration, is what we call, a “wiseguy” suit. He has more black on the left side of his face, so he would be named, “Lefty”.

    On the peak of the roof, here on the waterfront, pigeons and seagulls make a real mess. Run some monofilament about three inches above the peak and they cannot land. They go elsewhere. A 2×4 or wrap around that vent pipe and run the length of the roof.

    That cat looks too fat for a feral animal. Has the missus been sneaking out back a lot?

    Rifleman III,
    interesting cat facts. If we start getting pigeons on our roof I’ll see about running some line. Seems like a simple fix. Might even try the
    recipe, thanks.

    watched it grow from a kitten. It used to live in the warehouse behind our garage. The wife did try to feed it and it acted like it didn’t know what cat food was.
