Ever hear of the book, "The $64 Tomato"?
Well, we were headed down that path when we started erecting a fence several weeks ago.
We put in metal posts and hung a gate.
Then, *Bing*, a light bulb went off!
(It was more like an alarm.)
We were about to spend a small fortune to protect two beds.
I don't spray close to the veggies but rather a perimeter in the grass, outside the mulched area. I have a fear I'm going to step in this when it's wet and track it inside my house.
I think it's urine of dead animals. Only kidding!
So far, so good. No more marauders in the middle of the night.
Now, quickly and radically changing the subject:
Here we have Big Ole' Nasty Dog.
Now an inside dog (who goes regularly to the professional groomers) that lounges his days away on an egg crate mattress.
Which, by the way, makes the best dog bed. Only $9.99! Fold in half, cover in an old sheet and when the sheet gets dirty, just toss it in the laundry.
...who will pester Smarty Girl for some affection and...
...then both will pester He Man for snuggles...
... then they'll compare petting notes...
... and bask in the realization they are loved.
Now that's what I call two unrelated topics.
