Look at the momma giving us stink-eye. She sits on the windowsill and just stares at us and if we hazard to use the front door, she and her mate scream bloody murder and closely circle us. I'm afraid one of them will fly in the house. In other news, my neighbor built himself a garden this year and I went to take pictures of it yesterday. It's doing so well and he has squash the size of baseball bats. I started his and mine at the same time and it makes me curious as to why mine entire plants aren't bigger than a dinner plate. I took this far away picture, but when I got up close to take more, I noticed they had one of the most impressive squash bug infestations I'd ever seen. The bugs had run out of real estate on the bottom of leaves and had moved to the top of the leaves and the eggplant. Nymphs were crawling everywhere. We did what we could to get rid of everything, but there's no way we got all of the eggs. The did their garden on a slope and honestly, it's just beautiful!
Granny posted today about the funny things her granddaughter said and it reminded me of the film I made of the girl. She can't say, "pajamas" to save her life. She honestly can't hear the difference. We wound up in a shouting match a week ago where she finally grabbed my face between her two hands and yelled, "puh-ka-JAMAS!" She's hard to hear in the film, but it sure is funny.
