Everything seemed to be starting out like normal. Our male dog, seen here with his toy monkey, got up at the usual time (just before 06:00).
Then I decided to go back to bed for just a few minutes. Dang, finally my eyes popped open at a little past 07:00 with a little help from on of my other dogs. OK, so I slept in, probably needed that but lost an hour and my days don’t seem to have enough hours in them anymore. Then I walked past the security monitor and saw one of my garbage cans pushed over, lid off, and stuff scattered all over the place. So guess what I did for the next half hour. If it was wildlife that did it, I can understand. There is just not much food available for them any more. This extreme drought has surely affected them and I bet there a lot of hungry (and thirsty) wildlife out there. But if it was the neighbors’ dogs, that is a different story. Just for your information, I tied the lid on the garbage cans like I used to when I had pig problems.
If you are a follower of my blogs you will remember the problems that I had changing the oil in my motor-home and couldn’t seem to get a filter that would seal. Well, yesterday I changed the oil since it had been awhile even though there was hardly any miles on it. This time I checked to make sure a gasket didn’t come off the old filter and stick to the seating area for the new one. Also purchased a special pan for catching the oil and it has a spout for emptying. Job was a lot easier and went smoothly with no problems.
OK, you all have a great day and be safe out there over this long holiday weekend. I am going to head for the flea market, as usual. We old folks have trouble changing our schedule (grin).
