about the bears. This isn't my neighborhood but it's quite close. I can't believe those idiots are FEEDING them. I love bears, I really do, and if they want to wander around at night I'm all for live and let live, but a fed bear is a dangerous bear. It's a short hop from getting handouts to demanding them. And yes, this is all happening in the city, not some remote outpost of a subdivision in the boondocks.
Got the estimate from the landscaper, and it was right in line with what I was prepared to pay, but damn, it's a LOT of shrubbery, much more than I'd expected! I must be getting the commercial rate. I'm quite okay with this. It's going to look Mahvelous when done.
Scarves - Girl and I were walking the Lads last night and the breeze was cool and we were wearing sweatshirts, and I finally realized why Scarves Are Good. Even though my sweatshirt was cutting the breeze nicely, I was chilly because my neck was cold. A scarf with a sweatshirt no longer seems like a bad idea. The KFI Cashmerino that failed to become a Debbie Bliss sweater for Girlchild last year (because apparently DB designs for gigantic babies and short women) is going to become a scarf that matches the Girlchild's eyes. And maybe a hat too. It's not enough for a sweater that will actually fit her Tallness, it was barely enough for the DB failure, but it will make a deevinely soft scarf that will not itch her delicate and not shy about complaining about it neck.
