Just put out a large garbage bag of old winter coats and other stuff that doesn't fit anymore. It's going to the Diabetes Foundation. They claim that they send the crappy stuff to fibre recycling.

Before supper it was, "Calling Taxlady for radioactive cleanup." Shreddy had horked in Stirling's office, so for cleanup I have to wear disposable gloves and toss everything in the "radioactive bag". That's the one that has to sit in the yard for three months before it goes into the regular garbage.

I think cats like to hork. This one had a hairball. He has actually been horking less than usual, thank goodness.

The vet clinic called me on 10 October at 13h56 to say his radiation level was down to 6 microSieverts/ hour. That means at 14h00 on Wednesday, the day after tomorrow, I can snuggle with Shreddy as much we want to. w00t!

Oops, not at those prices!

Mine still works, it's just that I have to stay in the kitchen while it's on, for safety's sake.

Perfect croutons are great pac! Don't know what the new toy cost, but I'm probably glad Himself is perfectly happy with the bags of them at the grocery store. 99 cents. I don't eat them...UNLESS we're at Ruby Tuesday's. Their croutons rock!

I just finished watching the prettiest sky as the sun set over our hill. Rosy stripes alternating with pale blue. Missing the stars in the upper left corner - otherwise I could have sung the Star-Spangled Banner!
