I have been taking care of the trash. I have five wastebaskets and I know someone comes in the middle of my deep sleep and fills them up. Or I am using those small boxes of dried trash. Just add a cup of water and the wastebaskets are full. I live alone. How can I make so much trash? Maybe all the paper dishes and bowls have something to do with it.

Just finished making up a batch of sausage for tomorrows Boliche. And watching the first preseason game of the NHL. Jets and Caps. Woohoo, hockey's back.

We had a nice dinner. DA is tired. I went with Azia on the bike before it is too dark.

The days are becoming shorter. My favorite time of year is the fall and the winter and the early spring!

Your friend,

Just got some wild hair and decided to shampoo the carpets. Now that's done, I'm going to chill out.

I planted a variety of salad greens in a window box today and cleaned out a quarter of our square garden to make room for new green beans and peas. I'll also be planting spinach, carrots, parsnips and rainbow chard. I still have tomatoes producing in two of the other three quarters, so I'll clean out another one tomorrow.

I love this time of year when the temperature cools down and we plant the fall garden. Today was absolutely gorgeous: low 70s, low humidity, mostly sunny and a gentle breeze.

I have been watching CSpan on the First Ladies of the White House. Spike stopped by as he does every night. He brought me a small container of fried clams. I think maybe clams are going to have to go on the list with scallops and crab meat. My stomach is feeling a little bit queasy. I am allergic to the iodine in seafood. I will know for sure the next time I eat them. I have always been able to eat them. I hope I can continue to do so. One of the clams had a nice big fat belly. YUM!

Are you sure it's the clams and not the grease? You said they are fried and the amount of grease left in fried food varies wildly.

No, it was the clams. There wasn't a drop of grease in the bottom of the cardboard container. If it was the grease, I would have had an immediate reaction. It is the same feeling I get when I try to eat a scallop that is very high in iodine. All I have to do is one bite, I can taste the iodine and I spit it out. But that one bite is enough to make my stomach queasy a few minutes later. I have never had it happen with clams before. But there were some really big ones in that box. And those could possibly have iodine in them. (Thank you for the angel)

We're sitting in our Sports' Bar eating supper. Seems we're on west coast time. I'm at the kitchen table with the baseball game audio (my team is up 7-0 ) while Himself is in his throne watching Ohio State play football. That game is too close for comfort since the game is only in the 3rd quarter with a little over 4 minutes to go, Buckeyes up 45-27. Cal isn't a good team and they shouldn't have 27.

Oh, wait! What did I hear from the living room? "Touchdown!" Buckeyes 52-27. At least the offense showed up for this game. Or just maybe the Buckeye defense is out drinking with the Golden Bears defense.
