I like the roll to spill the paper counter clock wise so, if needed, I can just spin and the paper will be at my finger tips.
On the other hand and the other direction, I become a basket case over where is the toilet paper. If it lays on the wall, it bothers me. I prefer for it to free hang in the air. I don't know why I dislike the paper touching the wall first, it is clean and after all I am only wiping my behind.
I could have simply reinstalled the roll but then I would not have been able to write this.

He has a buddy and they make their rounds daily, seeking treasures of scraps or dog food or what ever it is their day to find. He calls softly to his bud when he finds a morsel, the same way a hen calls to her chick.
He has one major problem and those involved are getting rather annoyed with him. He thinks he is a cat.
I don't mean he simply hangs with the cats or helps them eat their food. I mean he is attracted to the cats! Really attracted!!!
This rooster does not see a four legged mortal enemy, he sees an attractive, a very attractive partner. The rooster works incessantly at convincing them he can change their world. He is the eternal wooer of cats! The cats ignore his romantic overtures and if he tries to carry them out, the cats just move.
I enjoy our animals getting along but this is very unnatural in my book! He has hens but the cats are the apple of his eye. Go figure!
Now if he goes in a soup pot, will he taste like rooster or have a strange flavor of cat?

The fog wasn't clearing very fast.

The yard crew (Hubby and Beverly) was mowing yesterday. East of the house, near the old tractor tire water garden, a copperhead snake was spotted but escaped. This guy is poison and we do not really like having one this close to the house. Heck, we don't like having them at all!
Today after work, I tackled the jungle. My goal to clear the way for easy snake spotting, open it up for easier mowing and pick up some damaged things I had not disposed of yet. I wish I had taken before pictures but you can measure the piles and imagine the befores because I only have afters.

The water garden needs attention because of fallen pecan blooms but I just haven't gotten there yet. The lilies are blooming any way so I guess it is not too vital to remove them right away.
Den waited all morning for Sears to repair two mowers still under warranty. The appointment was for a time between eight am and twelve. What kind of appointment is that? Then after the repairman arrived, his determination was bad gas but replaced parts that were not damagable by gas. Go figure...I am not mechanically inclined. I just enjoy the power.
I think I am coming back from the sinus,/bronchitis/general infection thing. I can almost hear again and I can smell some things. I walk into my room and get a whiff of leather from the saddles and bridles...awesome, I have missed that smell.
This illness has delayed my reconstruction inside the barn. My plan for a tack room will be started soon. I shall miss the smell of leather in my bedroom. Perhaps the nearness of the tack will encourage me to saddle up since it will be more handy.
The barn is old and has no power so I have been looking at solar lights. I can place the panel on the barn wall or roof and the light in the tack room.
I am working on eating less unhealthy rather than more healthy. It just sounds better that way, not so harsh. It is good that I love fresh vegtables and during the garden season, I have no desire for meat.
I am ready for the tired to leave. I was not truly aware of how tired I was until I was driving home. I have been in trouble for not waving at someone before, now I wave at every car I meet just to cover the one I may miss. This is how tired I am...a bird flies across the highway in front of me...I wave. I have a motion detected wave. How sad is that?
