Sunny Saturday

We finally have our DirecTV connection and, barring some unforeseen catastrophe, I will be able to sit in MY living room and watch The Closer on Monday night.

And FoxNews the rest of the time.

Rick tackled the backyard mowing this morning and scared up four enormous wood rats. They each promptly scurried under the house.

I'm going to buy some rat poison this afternoon. My trusty Daisy varmint gun is also nearby.

Can someone explain to me why people in non-arid locales would want to plant yuccas? They vicious and pervasive and vigorous and quite difficult to eliminate. Not to mention they just don't *belong* in any landscape other than a gravel-covered lawn in Tucson.
