The dog toys were all taken up because it wasn't enough to have toys for everyone, Pepper wanted to hoard all of them and became a monster in the process. When they're out of sight she's her old lovable self and she and the puppy had a terrific rough-and-tumble run around the back yard; the point at which I opened the sliding door Cookie was on top appearing to chew Pepper's head off (with her compliance, of course.) Whew!

Another high of 96o predicted today, but rain is in the forecase tomorrow iwth a high at 89o, then back up for a couple of days before it FINALLY seems to settle into fall-like temperatures. This is one heckuva hard-fought seasonal shift.

This week I started reading a new environmental email newsletter called HEATED ( The topic they discussed this week is those insulated delivery packages Amazon has developed that are totally unrecyclable, though their various components do recycle (when not combined.) It is something I consider - I don't have groceries delivered so I haven't received those, but I've seen people still try to drop them in the village recycle bins. I reuse much of the packaging that comes to the house (as padding in boxes I send out.) It makes for a stack of this stuff I have to thin out every so often. The days of wood shavings (excelsior) and padded paper envelopes seem to be gone. I wonder if you can even buy them any more?
