Of tough shrubs and critters

I’ve put the chores on hold to get this out and stop the
bleeding since I look like I was in a bare knuckle brawl with a
bobcat. Who’d think bushes have tougher thorns than roses? Well
these did. And this happens every time I trim that same bush.
Makes one wonder if somebody makes work gloves with long Kevlar
arm pieces attached.

The moon last night looked like it needed a friend so while
spending time with that I missed out on some sleep. But the
moon said he felt better after our chat and so did I.

Although we haven’t seen the feral cat and her kittens in a
few days the bowl of food we set out gets empty by later in the
day so they must still stop by. If the chores ever get done I
spend a little time trying to figure it out.

At least the winged critters show up daily to roost in the
trees and eat the bird seed we put out for them while somehow
managing to look majestic in their poses.

And we had a new visitor today that I don’t remember seeing
around before. The antenna on this creature look like something
out of a sci-fi flick to me. Not sure if the critter is a moth,
a butterfly, or an alien who just landed, but it is different
from what usually spot.

It was pretty small but also looked mad about something.
Perhaps it should phone home. Enjoy our wednesday as in a few
more days the weekend will be here. Since I’ve had my pizza
it’s time to clean the wounds, smother them with iodine, and
find the band-aids.

Pleas keep Texas in your thoughts and prayers.
Comments are always welcome.

    You could try one of those sleeves they sell to protect you from hot engine parts.
