Every year it seems there is a run (no pun intended, but that's what I would be doing) on Black Widow spiders hitching a ride in the bags of grapes. Since we never really need as many as are in one of the mesh bags I always pick a small bunch from a bag with several. As a bonus, any spiders that might be hiding don't hitch a ride to our home!

We tend to get fruit flies in cycles. Right now I have a couple of should-have-been-used-for-bread bananas melting in a bowl on the counter. So far no flies. Better bake/pitch them before I get company.

Had a lovely dinner and now about to head back into the loungeroom for some Masterchef

I knew there was a reason I don't buy grapes

Good morning

We have a man coming over today to grind up the orange tree trunk and roots, so that is good, only charging $80 too, even better

Going out this morning to get some bread from the bakery and a few bits and pieces

Have you ever had the experience of patting one? Their fur is so soft and silky. How do I know? The Pirate got one for his 16th birthday from his girlfriend (who became his wife). Ain't love grand.

I was horrified when she first brought it in the house. "Get that thing out out my home NOW!" But over time I even let it climb up my arm. Would I do it today? No, No, no and even HECK NO!!! As a wise person once said.
