I went over and picked up the girls before stopping to grab a couple of birthday cards and gift bags. While we were driving, Courtney said “Papa, I know you have a daily blog.” When I asked her how she knew that, she said “I googled you.” She told me she read every blog last week. “They’re pretty good.” Hey, that’s more acknowledgment than I get from my boss!
So, I promised her that I would mention her in my blog today. Morning Courtney. Be good in school today!
Saturday morning before mowing the lawn I noticed a lot of ant hills in the backyard. Great! Just what we need. Another pest to annoy us all summer. I had never noticed ants before, so I thought I’d better get over to the hardware store to grab some ant killer to nip this problem in the bud. The guy at the hardware store told me he was having the same problem, as were a lot of his customers. He’s been selling ant killer like it’s been going out of stock over the course of the last week.
It’s a good thing I didn’t put any down before that big rain on Saturday night. Today’s the day. Ants, be forewarned. I’m coming to get you this morning!
This morning I had one of those very rare occasions where I had a cop riding my tail for half of my drive in to work. I made sure I was doing just under 60 all the way in. I always believed that doing the exact speed limit with the fuzz on your tail is a little too suspicious. I finally lost him when I turned on to Rose St. off of Victoria Ave.
The last time I was pulled over by a cop was for speeding on the #1 highway 21 years ago.
That’s a streak I’d like to extend!
