The Retriever shedding blade works well on all of the dogs but the oldest one who is mostly blue heeler likes it best.

I did mow the yard and the short Bermuda, native grasses, and weeds look so nice! This was followed by a concerted amount of scooping and adding dog droppings to the compost (it might make sense to scoop before mowing, but the weeds make that job difficult.) No mice in the bucket but I'll leave it there for a couple of weeks at least. It didn't work in the garage, but it might work in the greenhouse. The final place to deploy it is in the attic. After clearing out all of those flat cardboard boxes it will be easier to place at some point in the future. In cold weather it is most likely there are uninvited inhabitants up there now.

Overnight the wind arrived and things tipped over and blew around all night and will continue until this evening, apparently. I expect to find yard furniture, trash cans, and more out in the street later. One of my metal chairs rattled around in the gusts so it wasn't a good night's sleep.

Several months ago the earwire of one of my favorite pairs of sterling silver earrings vanished, and I didn't really want to buy a new pair. It finally dawned on me to replace the wire, so a dozen new wires arrived from Hong Kong (!) and I replaced both wires since the new ones didn't match the remaining old one. They're actually nicer, and give me ideas about making more earrings. It's time to start using a lot of the beads I discussed over the years with Katlaughing and a few other Mudcat crafters.
