General Laborer Editor in Chief & Assistant Aeronautical Engineer for Memorandum Monday
I did learn that the Chinese are responsible for paper, an invention for which I am forever grateful. We might be able to even claim that led to the rise of Washi tape, which is one of the second best inventions ever. Gold doilies being the first of course.
I knew you were dying to see my pile of barbed wire. This is only half of it. I managed to completely ruin a pair of gloves and had to throw out the jeans I wore. The ticks were out in force and the rip in the jeans which was up near the hoo-ha was making me nervous. I was suspicious that the little buggers were going to use that entry point. Turns out my fears were unfounded and I managed to come out of the woods tickless. Because one doesn't go into the woods without a cell phone (in case of possible tick attack) I also sent what I thought was the funniest text message of the week to THE MAN.
I sent him this photo and told him I was in love with a dyke. I guess the tool version is spelled dike, but at the time the whole thing was funny to me. He is a lucky lucky man to have to me.
Anyhow I am also happy to report I saw my first crocus, so not only are the ticks back, but we have things in bloom! It's a great start to a week!
Waving over to Miss Sian, the host of Memorandum Monday who is likely equally happy that that Chinese invented paper.....and washi tape.
