Not really. I'm having trouble with vimeo. There is no Daisy in the first video! I am unable to edit it. We call our raccoons Butch and Sundance and they were visiting. Hubby rented the movie and we rewatched it Friday! This was hilarious. The windup bee fascinates them!
Sunday drive - Nov. 8th. This was a lovely day. This is part 3 of our day trip. Rideau Ferry; Canada Geese · Westport Harbour: cold, clear lake and blue sky. We've had 10 C. temperatures, and 16.51mm (0.65") over a couple of days and, of course, grumpy cats. How nice to look back on this fine ...

It was a damp start to November. We've had balmy temperatures. It's something about hurricane Patricia's remnants meeting an Alberta Clipper. Then the jet stream. It is kind of the USA to send up the warmer air! With this, I've had to do some repairs. I usually have the drainspout emptying into ...
