Salma, Wasps and Pottery Dogs
I've been working on a few more thoughtful posts for this blog (and I'm still working on them). In the meantime, here are a few interesting photos for my dedicated readers to peruse. Above is some little creature that snuck into the house and tried to make itself at home. Actually, she is playing in her Greco Entertainer 480R saucer that was handed down to us by Crystal. I tried to find some documentation on it online to figure out how to change the batteries (it seems to be a secret process). Can you imagine, trying to find online documentation on an eight year old baby toy? What a dummy I am.
We've had two previous wasps nests at the back of our house, on opposite sides of the laundry room. Our gardener recently removed the second one, and here are the wasps, swarming on a wet leaf and trying to figure out what to do next.
Laura and I went on a craft-finding mission (sort of like a fact-finding mission, but more productive) up and down the highway, from Santa Clara to La Chorrera. Here's an outdoor tiled cement table, but more interesting are the pottery dogs designed to look as if they are digging.
We did not buy one.
