Summertime at home

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

We’ve had a quiet summer so far.  Our two old cats (both black) died within weeks of each other.  They were around twenty years old, so they had long and comfortable lives.  We are now down to one calico cat, named Chloe, about ten years old; one parakeet and then there is Fergie and Yuma.  Our family is getting smaller and more manageable.

A couple weeks ago, poor Yuma saw something in the culvert going under our road and went to investigate.  He came running back out spitting and slobbering heading for the house.  I could smell right away what he ran into.  A skunk!  Luckily, the spurt only hit him in the mouth and the right side of his head and shoulder.  Didn’t get into his eyes.

Went to Petco and bought some skunk smell remover and washed him several times, but weeks later he still has that smell on him.  Guess it will slowly fade away.  The culvert is a couple hundred feet behind Yuma.

The corn is over seven feet tall now and very thick.

There is our house hidden in all those trees.

Our original Miss Adventure trailer still sits in front of our MH.

Traveling to the southwest this winter is still a sticky subject.  Just have to wait and see what happens.  Still plenty of time.

See you later.
