Clearing up after a hoarder is definitely an eye-opening experience. That family has my sympathy.

Canada Day in Stratford was very quiet, both literally and socially. In previous years, we have heard many minor fireworks explosions around the neighbourhood as well as the cacaphony of the municipal display, mounted more for the tourists than for us townies in my opinion. This year, the town celebration was a live-streamed concert; if we wanted more than that, we were on our own.

We invited the still-unpacking BIL and SIL to dinner and drew the line at that, but some of our neighbours broke out the firecrackers. Desultory detonations marred the suburban peace until about eleven o'clock, when everybody just gave up and went to bed.

The cats paid no attention, focussing instead on the antics of the back-yard robins.
