Today is Canada Day (not an official holiday in Arizona).  I wish all Spo-fans of the Canadian sort a happy birthday. May all your Tim-bits be chocolate ones.

It is also Harper’s Birthday. I think she is eight years old; I have to look it up.  I could not ask for a better pooch.  Rescue dogs – them’s the best !

While we were taking our matutinal walk Harper and I saw Mrs. Oliver, the great horned owl. It is always a joy to see her.

The lights in the laundry room went out. In the light fixture is a desiccated scorpion. This is not the first time we’ve found one of these villains in the ceiling fixtures. How on earth they get up there is a mystery.

We had a lovely French rose the other night. It was dry, with mineral tones, rather than the sickly-sweet rubbish normally found in ‘cheap pink’.

Oh but there is work to be done! Where does all the laundry come from?  This nonsense never ends.

The Whisky Advocate had an article on matching whisky to nasty chips. Oh the joy.  This beats wine and cheese by a country mile. I plan to have one of these marvelous combinations on my birthday.

Finally, we are out of lens wipes – a crisis indeed! We use them constantly in the never ending goal to keep our cellphones and spectacles clean of grease and fingerprints. I bought the big box; I apologize for the big greasy finger pointing out the obvious. There is much rejoicing in the House of Spo.
