Ours arrive around 7:30, but they take various routes through the neighborhood, so we never know if they’ll pick up ours early or late.

They were doing that here years ago for commercial dumpsters.

I took a nap, then igged the nausea, and went to run errands. There is one more to do, and that can wait until tomorrow.

It’s a good thing I didn’t wait any longer, or I probably wouldn’t have gone anywhere today.

Picking hananeros with bare hands is a no-no...

They do the trash separation here, too, but it’s been mostly residentail for at least the last 15 years. Homeowners have big black or green garbage cans, then they also have red white and blue crates for plastic/aluminum, paper and glass.

Interesting. When I pulled out on the highway from leaving work, I saw a lot of of headlights on, an unusual number. At first I thought it might have been due to rain ahead (the sky was dark ahead), but then realized many were on in my direction too and it was sunny behind me. Then I remembered and turned mine on too.

Double-checked the weather radar and it looked there had been no rain in the area. Soo...

I just sent out three emails: One each to Piglosi and Harriet, and one to the only smart Rep we have here, Jon Porter. John Ensign was evidently working in his animal clinic and couldn’t be bothered.

I can hardly wait to see what will happen next. I suspect by the time the House is back in session, folks will be primed and ready.

Had to cut down one of the trees here.
An old maple, had a huge hole through it.
So I ended up with lots of saw shavings all over me.
And that maple tree smell from the sap.
Ugh.

Otherwise, quite normal.

LOL. Not sure about the "maple tree smell" though. We had maples but where I grew up was mostly oak country. And I've been almost forever in cedar country now.

Things quiet here. Impeded by a bum foot that limits walking & standing, but that could heal in time. Also in the middle of a whole TWO-AND-A-HALF-MONTHS-AT-HOME, wondering... "What are they doing to the airport in my absence???"

But I'll know the answer to that way too soon. *\;-)

Cutting a maple tree yields this odd sweetish scent.
Getting it on you attracts every bug from Nilbog to Gor-Karchoroath to come and feast upon your now maranaded flesh.
Nasty stuff, comes off easily in water with soap, but the bugs resent being scraped off.

Ah. We don't have many such bugs here. I think I've seen a dozen or so mosquitoes this summer. Unusually many.

(I think they're like Californians; can't tolerate our long, dark, grey and depressing winters and summer is too short for them to get a running start.)

Also irritated a katydid while cutting the tree.
Had to remove the katy and transport it to safer ground.
At least it didn’t land on me.
(Unfortunate for the person who did end up face to face with green bug eyed wriggling mandibles)

I need to catch up on the news and find some humor anyway. I’m really behind on things. Now that I know where we are I can find my way back another day.

We acquired a new member of the family during my absence. A beautiful female Himalayan kitten who obviously was looking for a servant. I seem to be corrupting her....she steals cigarette butts from the ashtray, tries to drink beer and wine, watches TV and is fascinated with the computer.
