HAHA! No, What a hoot! I'm not a violent person by nature until it comes to earwigs. Well, and sometimes some other things that eat wholes in things. So the straw in the pots sure apealed to the gotcha side of me. By the way, welcome. It's lots of fun. Most of us in here together trying to figure out the best way to do all kinds of things and loving every minute of it.
"Thank you, Keryn. Our street (and the whole town) does have lots of lovely big old tall trees. Our commute to and from NYC to work is about 90 minutes each way, but it's a price we are willing to pay to live here."
"Hi Christine, here in Victoria we have had no rain in October, my lawn was lush and is now drying off, I ,ve heard that WA is having good rain for 3 days so hope it comes my way. I,ve told my friend in WA to blow hard."
"Thanks Keryn. I was really impressed, too, with the fall colors I saw on this trip. I've never seen them so vibrant. Not all of the roads look like this in the U.S. This just happened to be one that was recently paved."
