Yoo-Hoo! Its Sunday selfie time once again.Wow the week does fly by!
We had some noisy (not) fun here past Tuesday evening...when we had quite a violent thunderstorm screeching through here. At least we didn't get blown away. The neighbor's kiddy pool was traveling through the yard all on its own, BOL! Mr B got all wet trying to snag it and put it in his shed...which after the storm was squished by three big trees that fell on it..and those trees also fell on our fence that divides our properties. What a mess. There was a fourth dead tree that also came down in our yard...from his...oh well, the fence is a wee bit bent but still patent and we can't get out...shucks, it would be fun maybe, to have a jaunt around the hood...BOL!
While we were inside waiting for this storm to pass, we heard all kinds of noises, like hail big hail, hitting our house...and while there was just enough light to see out there, petcretary saw that our walnut tree of some 40plus years was not upright but the branches were horizontal! It was amazing that it wasn't blown out of the ground. The 'hail' we heard was a bazillion walnuts being shaken off the tree and tossed around by the strong winds. Its a wonder they didn't break windows! Some are the size of tennis balls...And *she* found a bunch of them on the other side of our house! Wow! No idea what the force of that wind was, but we are thankful our house wasn't damaged, and that this was straight line winds, not a tornado. There were dozens of large branches broken off the tree and not a few limbs...but when we look at it, you'd never know it had endured such windy abuse. So cleaning up just the mess from the walnut tree took several hours and now the walnuts are still strewn all over the grass...more hours of work to pick them all up...the squirrels will love a chance to stock up their larders for the winter ahead...BOL!
You know what?? She did not take any pics of this event! What?? She just wanted it to get cleaned up asap...walking there right now is like trying to walk on ball bearings. Yikes!
The peeps in town fared worse, they lost power for a while and there were a lot of uprooted trees, etc. So we are thankful we are relatively unscathed.
This past Tuesday at the teaser, petcretary was not a firstie...and she wasn't a first right guesser either! Though she did have the correct answer...oh well, another time maybe!
Here we are for this week's selfies:
|Can I have my treat now pawlease??!|
|Did someone say treats?? Mmmm!|
We saw in the POTP/RB postings that Captain Cuddles left the earth suddenly, to become a handsome new angel. While we didn't know this sweetie, we made a memorial card in his honor, to help give a wee bit of comfort to his family. You can visit him here.
If we are missing a lot this upcoming week, our pawrents are leaving us in the loving care of our unfurbro-the-elder, as they must go out of town for several days...we'll try to stop in, if petcretary has a free moment...else we'll see ya next time!
