I’m a trend setter

Old business first-congrats to Easy, who “got” yesterday’s post. Of course, Kaci piled on with a “me too” response. Sorry Kaci, it doesn’t count-Easy got there first. I’d send a bottle of Arizona wine (yes, it exists) to Easy except the red tape trying to send alcohol to France would be too much and the post office would probably spoil it anyway. Why would I send Arizona wine to France? Easy would have enjoyed it because I was always told that imported wine is better.

We’re about to go through a hard freeze for the next four days (sorry, Tasmania and NSW, eat your hearts out) which means at the worst we’ll lose our citrus trees. At the best, they’ll recover and we’ll have zero crop to harvest next winter and a small and poor one in 2015. The best case has us getting a normal crop in 2016. There was a freeze in January 2011, no crop last January and the small, poor quality one this year. The trees have been picked of what was there before the freeze would have turned them to mush. The freeze that’s coming is supposed to be the worst since 1916. Global warming?

Remember two posts ago (Jan 8, It happens every winter) where I complained about my bootie and being called “Klompie”? It appears that my next door neighbor, Lilly the rescue greyhound, took offense at this treatment. She showed up yesterday with a bootie on her hind left paw and she wasn’t disguising it-bright red! Talk about a real friend, Lilly shares the abuse with me.

SAM_0298I was overwhelmed. I broke out the Mollie treats that we save for special occasions because they’re so good.



Perhaps we started a fashion statement?

  6. I’m jealous of Lilly’s red bootie. I guess I can get my own.

  7. I’m fatter than that pic, just sucking my gut so they don’t think all from America are overweight. My peeps tried to order tan boots for desert walking but not available. Guess its more important to find them if they come off than keeping a low profile. They see me coming…..

  11. With 37 local government areas declared a national emergency in NSW, many homes lost in the fires in Tasmania and fires still out of control in NSW, Victoria and warnings for ACT, I’m sure a cold snap would be welcome.

  12. We’ve breathed the smoke and seen the actual flames before plus the orange sky. It is scary. We’re hoping for a rain torrent for you guys.

  13. You should show up in a stiletto healed, bling covered bootie, see how that trend goes!
