We don’t have the heart to throw away Ruby’s current favorite toy. This box came home with me from Costco last week. I put it under the table until trash day and Ruby has adopted it as her little taxi cab. She’ll sit in it just watching kitchen goings on from this level for 30 minutes at a time. Does she think she’s hidden?
I like to take my sandwich or whatever I am lunching on, down to the boat launch by my office. It’s the same spot we spin at in the summer. If the weather is nice I take a nice lunchtime walk from here. Today it was cold and damp out so I stayed in the truck to eat and read the latest Pieceworks magazine. Halfway through my ham and cheese sandwich, BAM BAM. It was so loud and so metallic sounding I thought someone had shot the truck. But the BAM BAM sound was the truck getting hit from overhead. I looked around sheepishly at the two other cars in the parking lot. Their occupants were happily eating their lunches like nothing was going on. Because, nothing was going on. When I finished my sandwich I walked around the truck to see what caused the sounds. It ended up being resourceful seagulls that had dug up freshwater clams the size and weight of golf balls, flying over the parking lot and dropping them to open them. The parking lot, except for the path that I’d chosen to drive in on, was littered with shells.
Always a little late to the table, I just started watching “Firefly”. Kelly has loaned me the series and I love it! Why didn’t anyone tell me about this before???
