It was too much for him and I suspect too stupid (like most things I do) so he didn't do it in the end. I can't blame him. At least he puts up with me.

I'm quite sure a few other people especially the board staff would disagree.

Anyway, the new windows in our house are really nice and it definitely brightens everything up and the new toilet also works well.

I would hardly call you stupid, at least!

I sometimes wonder if I'm actually stupid. Most of the time I feel I act like a normal being of about average intelligence...but every so often, like way more frequently than I feel should be normal, I do or say something that makes me feel like I'm a grade A moron.

I seem to not posess good logic. Some of the things I do or say make no logical sense.

Though most of the time it's because I find it's because I encounter situations I've never had to deal with before, though I feel it's situations where anyone with any amount of common sense would know the correct course of action anyway.

One recent example I can give off the top of my head is I had to dispose of a bowl of yoghurt my RL GF had but couldn't eat because she thought it tasted sour like it had gone off (even though it was fresh from the store so I dunno what happened there) and in my infinite wisdom I thought that it was "liquid" enough to dump down the kitchen sink. My GF informed me that this was incorrect, I shoulda dumped the yoghurt in the bin because we always put leftover food we can't eat in the bin, and I coulda clogged the sink pipe.

This is not the best example of what I'm talking about but it's the only one I can think of at the moment.

I forgot that in the UK drains aren't open and have small holes on them.

Last year, my university planted some oak saplings along the recently renovated road I walk down to get to the student center every day. As of the start of this semester, they were all about 6ft. tall. Then, of course, the snowstorms came. They handled it well, by and large, but one of the two on the same side of the sidewalk that I use snapped in half under the weight of the snow and ice; its buddy about a dozen feet further down was bent, but not broken. I thought the broken tree was a gonner.
Fast forward to the spring, and the saplings have started to bloom again. They have about as many leaves as one would expect a young tree to have at this time of year. The tree than bent, but never broke, is still bent at about 90 degrees over the sidewalk (will someone please give it a support?), and the tree that broke in twain? There's more leaves on that muffins and cookies half-tree than there are on the full sized ones. IT looks like someone put a large stick of cotton candy in the ground, except instead of candy its leaves. And I swear there's more leaves on it every time I walk past. It just fascinates me to no end.

Indeed that they are or so I have found. But they don't take kindly to cats deciding to SLEEP on them. :?

When we lived in North Carolina, there were lizards (anatoles, I think) who would lay their eggs in our potted plants. They were kinda cute little guys but it took a while to evict them.

I have flat of grass for my tomcat. He loves grass and the sun but hates going outside.

Since there are apparently coyotes around here now we can afford to let either our older male cats out or are younger tiny female cats.

It's interesting - the wildlife around here has gotten bolder and incautious to boot. Maybe its because we bolded are laying lower.

I do think that because less people are out and about wildlife is out in the open more, I seem to see more on my walks anyway. I know there have been cases of wild herds of animals starting to wander into towns which doesn't typically happen. Seeing many more birds in my garden.

Had a doe poking around in our yard at sunrise this morning. Youngster, looked pretty healthy. Sophie wanted to dash out and say "Hi!" but I didn't want to alarm the deer. Haven't had a deer in our yard for several years. When I was a child, it was pretty common, and they'd hang around until sixish. Always loved them.

I'm jealous! Never seen any wild deer near where I live now, though apparently they have been seen in the village. I've seen a wild deer where I work late in the evening strolling up the road and there are heards of red deer and fallow deer kept locally.

Ours are basic Virginia Whitetails. I'm told that Mule Deer, Blacktails, and even elk have been seen episodically but I'm skeptical.

There were deer all around my childhood home. But it was rough when there were winding roads because it was hard to avoid them in your car. :O

We once had a deer run out in front of us but luckily it didn't hit us. Only happened once though a few years ago.
