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.
Perhaps we started a fashion statement?
