Hey Mellie, how ya doing? And Poet, hang in there.

I don’t think we have anyone in the family out on any thing big as of yet. My husband has been busy jumping around from multiple baby sparkers due to several days of lightening in the area. They have had a couple that the DoL got involved in but so far all is relatively quiet. We do have family in Payson Ariz that have ashes being dumped on their home so they are getting a bit nervous. I don’t know the name of the fire yet.

I only have one pile red stuff by the front door this year so that is a good sign I might have less mess to contend with. And as usual I am always surprised that no matter how much we clean and wash and wipe down before winter storage that little smokey smell still whiffs around. I think the answer to the “why they start looking out the windows and walking the floor” is that little odor. Sort of like a little whiff of a favorite perfume. Poor guys (and gals) they are just at natures mercy. And if we could harness all that before the call energy imagine how many “honey do’s” we could get done. Pray it is a safe summer. And anyone just visiting the site jump right in…..we were all newcomers at some point.
