Just some things I’ve noticed:

-oranges tastes like sunshine and happiness.

-squirrels have a death wish but it’s unclear if it’s towards themselves or us.

-sometimes children are ill-behaved because their adults need a nap.

-no dog actually smells GOOD without human intervention.

-vacuuming sucks.

-“new and improved” often just means “smaller package with fancier lettering.”

-wasps are evil.

-few things are sadder than an empty mailbox.

-every spring I think this is the year I’m going to manage to get a tomato plant to flourish long enough to actually harvest ripe, healthy tomatoes.

-every autumn I say I’m never going to mess with tomato plants again.

    I loved this. It is so true — except for wasps. My wasps aren’t evil. I had birdhouses all around my yard (in my trees) and the wasps made nests which took me 2 years to figure that out. I got rid of the birdhouses but I have not been able to get rid of the wasps. We cohabitate in the same proximity. They leave me alone, I leave them alone. I guess they are kind of evil.

      They are terrible about building nests around my house—on my porch, under my eaves, in my garage—you just never know when you’re going to get dive-bombed! I did a tour with the spray can yesterday but I know from experience that it only slows them briefly. Nasty critters.

        I undersand. Once they establish it is practically impossible to get rid of them!
