Rain ~ Pest Control and other chit chat

The weather was not wrong this week.  We are getting rain off and on, but so much on that the weeds will be an issue.  

I ordered a very large container of cayenne pepper.  I can't keep up with the rabbits and the snakes are out of control.  I'll be giving it a try to deter both from the garden.  The snakes keep other pests out, but they also keep me out of the garden ha ha!

It paid to open every envelope that I had in my old small lock box.  I have now purged that mess of paperwork.  I found an autograph I got as a young child, while in FL at an old motel visiting my Aunt.  It's from Norm Crosby.  Mom saved it and gave it too me years ago and I have uncovered it again.  Not sure what I will do with it ha ha!  Anyway, glad I got that old mess of paperwork gone.

We went and looked at a hard sided camper last night.  It doesn't have a slide out, but has a shower, toilet and hot water.

A treasure! I don’t have a celebrity autograph but I did stand next to Ed Too Tall Jones at a Cracker Barrel on Christmas Eve morning. He nodded and said “Hello” to me. He IS tall!

M.Myers, I bet that was an awesome meet and greet with him.

Impressive autograph. If you have no attachment to it, it might be worth checking out its value.

Thanks mamasmercantile, will do. I mean it's been locked up for years and years now.
