7 Quick Takes Friday

--- 1 ---

No bear sightings this week. Yet. For the past month, whenever I lulled into a false sense of security by a full seven bear-less days, she pops back up with frightening proximity. So we’re due for another bear visit any day now.

While I was upstairs getting ready this morning, Nani heard Sadie’s announce: “Nani! Mae Bae has a frog!” Nani turned to find Mae Bae sitting on the ground, holding a frog in both hands.

I’ve ordered a new mouse, since, at the moment, my keyboard is working again. I’m hoping the mouse helps my computer limp through the next few months. I am leaning towards (stalking) the Apple website for refurbished laptops.

Hopefully this one will last for a few more months.

I’ve never seen two girls who were so bad at a watermelon-eating contest. You would have thought they were being poisoned:

I just finished up a post for tomorrow about my political evolution, from a communist to a conservative. Because this:

used to be my favorite t-shirt…
