    I can’t believe how bad they are this year.  With 3 dogs coming in and out, these darn helicopters  have invaded our house!

    I was noticing this week they are forming on ours. It’s an annual plague. If I wasn’t so cheap I’d cut the thing down.

    And by the way, the increase this year is due to global warming.

    I wouldn’t be surprised at the global warming thing.  

    We had hardly any winter at all.  One snowfall that didn’t amount to anything.

    The guy we pay in advance to plow the street made out like a bandit.  Almost $500 and he didn’t have to lose any sleep at all.

    We have the cottonwoods that drop something that looks like catapillers, all over the yard & patio. They have to be picked up, because they’re too heavy to blow away.
