Trimming the Bushes -- Red Robin 
Laughing over Frasier. Always funny...

I started my day going through emails, and did a load of dishes and picked up in the kitchen.

Later on I spent time trimming the front bushes. They aren't totally done, but I feel I got a good start. Marilyn will enjoy shaping them more.

After the bushes I was so tired. I was trembling again -- but did not have low blood sugar, so that's good. I think I just need to build up my strength for doing physical labor.

Anyway, I went into my bedroom and decided to lie down on top of it. Henry decided to join me. He insisted on being under the top blanket, however. It was pretty cute to see the lump on the bed next to me. I was out like a light and didn't wake up until Marilyn got home!

We talked a bit, and decided we'd go out for dinner. But Marilyn had been up since quite early, so she needed a nap. We both went to sleep.

Then when we got up we went to Red Robin for dinner, which was very nice.

Coming home we stopped at Safeway to pick up a couple of things.

When we got close to the house it was dark -- and we saw a coyote (!!!) walking across a lawn. We stopped to look at it and it just stood in the yard for ages before heading away.

I put out some dog food before we headed into the house...

Angel invited us to go see one of his shows tomorrow. And Jeff asked about getting together tomorrow, too. So at this point I have no clue what we're doing! But as of today we're on VACATION!!! We don't go back to work until July 11.

Marilyn hired a new woman -- Wanda -- to cover the front desk for the summer. Adeena sent her our way (she knows her from school). Marilyn really loved her. I'm looking forward to meeting her. I think I'll be training her on July 11...

Meanwhile she'll be coming in to learn the phone system.

And now I'm headed to bed. I'm still really tired.

Do you get a lot of coyotes there?
They have become much more common here on the east coast.

Frank, we live in an area with a lot of wild animals. We've encroached on their homes, and they have nowhere else to go, so in our neighborhood we have agreed to treat them kindly. Coyotes, raccoons, opposums, rats (ugh), many, many kinds of birds and on and on. There are many alleys that are green and it's still very much the wild, wild west in our suburbs.

If they are fed, they don't seem to hunt/harm our pets or bother us. It works for us, anyway...

I think putting out food for any wild animal is not really a good idea, and for sure, I would not want a coyote in my neighborhood because of my dog. (My yard is fenced but that won't stop them) I know your cats are indoor cats, but what if one got out? Also your neighbors have dogs I am sure.

The attitude in our neighborhood is that if we feed them, they won't hunt our pets. The poor things are hungry. And they have nowhere else to go. Animal control won't touch them.

Honestly, we have no issues with them since we all started feeding them, Kathy. I can't speak for other places, only here...
