Geez, my "What are you doing?" isn't anywhere near as exciting. I'm about ready to shut down here and head out to the grocery store. Seems someone around here likes to eat. You settle down Himself, I'm leaving already...

I'm putting together my new flame thrower. Too windy to try it out today.

Just got done shucking some marginal local corn that DH bought as a United Way fundraiser. Sadly, it looks beautiful, but was gummy when we tried a couple ears yesterday. It's destined for chicken corn soup.

Shrek found a wasp nest outside our front door, under the deck of the apartment upstairs. It was new only about 3 inches long. I got a can of spray, he waited until ot was dark last night and sprayed it from the doorway. The only place to aim from and be able to see it. It appears to be dead today.

Glad Taxlady and Stirling were able to get their nest with much humour. Stirling, all he needed was a shield and lance.

Not sure Stirling would be able to move with a shield and a lance. Reminds me of Ralphie's little brother in the snowsuit in "A Christmas Story".

That is good though, better to be safe than sorry

Have been up, had a nice hot shower and now enjoying some breakfast

We are heading out for a walk a bit later, other than that, a lazy day at home

Just about to start picking apart those lobsters. Hope I win the arm-wrestling contest.
