      God only knows what sort of moisturiser Arianna…uses.

      Wonderful what you can learn on FB, isn’t it?

        No doubt some people will believe this.

        I’d have thought that most people would know how to spell Barack Obama’s name.

        It was on Twitter – so it must be true!

          Well, yes, after all Trump tweets all the time.

          Anyway, we don’t know who this ‘Barrack’ Obama is or what he does,

    I wanted one of the signs that ask salesmen not to knock, but the Consumer ones seem unnecessarily rude so I painted one ‘No Salesmen, Please, I Don’t Need Anything’, as I don’t.

    I would have thought that there’d be a market for such signs, like the ones that say that flyers aren’t wanted. With ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ at the end, of course 🙂

      Isn’t “Salesmen” a bit sexist? Or are saleswomen allowed?

        Well, they always seem to be salesmen.

        There can be disadvantages to having no curtains and a clear glass door; JWs can see that I’m at home.

        I may have discovered my vocation – making signs.

    The bamboo stick was pulled out of the pot and on the back lawn again when I went out to do a little of mahi in the back yard this morning. I noticed a little black plastic plant stake is also now missing (and I suspect is probably somewhere down the stream or on the bank).

    There are also other objects I keep finding around the place, since I started letting little Jojo join the flight-capable members of her whanau in my yard by opening the gate to the stream.

    It looks to me like Jojo likes to play with toys.

      It looks to me as if she may be using tools as well as playing, in which case she is a very clever pook – superpook.

        I am glad not to be the sort of person who’d downtick that.

        M. Erde is here again.
