I have no news - good or bad - which is of itself good news. It's been hot but tolerable. The cooler has cut our bills in half since we're not having to use the A/C. We had a few really humid days so we cranked it up then but not enough to hurt the wallet. It's so nice to be cool and not quaking in fear of seeing the next electric bill!
We're having trouble with feral cats. Some sweet little old guy across the street feeds them. They have one litter after another, and it breaks my heart. The problem is they drive my dogs nuts. They walk the fences tormenting them and sit outside the fence or sliding glass door and stare at the dogs. The worst part of it is when my birds see them. Good gravy! Our Nanday Conure (parrot) is so loud I'm sure everyone in the park can hear him! And I'm not just whistling Dixie! It's like an air raid siren going off... So it falls on us to keep the zoo quiet so we don't disturb our neighbors, even though it's the cats' fault! I'm going to call the "Cat People," and see if they trap and release or will take them and find families for them. I wish people would be responsible pet owners. Sheeesh.
So how is everyone surviving the political mess? I watch as much on TV as I can stomach, then find something else to do. I have gotten so mad I've actually thrown stuff which scared the dogs to death. As Glenn Beck says, I have blood shooting out of my eyes! In today's newspaper there was a blurb that LA voters will have to vote on a bill making porn producers provide condoms for their "performers." Now, isn't that just ducky. I will admit I saw a smattering of an X-rated flick and had to bleach my eyes. But waste time and money for a bill? ARGHHH.
I don't have a clue who I will back in the elections. They start so soon that everyone is absolutely sick of politics - it's no wonder they can't get people to show up at the polls. I don't really like anyone running so far. Perry reminds me of a used car salesman - there's just something about the guy I don't like. Have to wait and see how many skeletons start popping out of closets.
I have homework for you all. I really enjoy Sandee's Wednesday post where she posts a question. I have one for you. What is your favorite current commercial and your least favorite? I'll post mine after you all post yours.
