Mr. One In A Million has spent the whole day sound asleep on our bed. How very cat of him.

Our county is under another flash flood watch for the weekend. Bunch more rain inbound and since we're already saturated, the runoff will flow quickly. At least the lake level is rising back toward full. At its lowest level this year, it was 901.75' on 2 Sep. Today, it's 903.60'. Full is 909'.

The burn ban is off, so we should be able to clear out a bunch of Mom's old paperwork. We hauled it all down here, knowing we could either shred it or burn it. Couldn't do it at her old location. That will give us several more cubic feet of space in the garage.

Back to lining a silverware drawer with silversmith cloth. Later, y'all.

Mr One in a Million has to rest from his administrative duties of course. Cat prerogative.[emoticon]

Parts of SC have already received at least 30 inches of rain. They're in bad shape there.

Looks like scientists have found Star Trek's planet Vulcan.

Spotacus has no idea what's going to happen in the morning. He's headed for the kitty hoosegow. We're driving to Fort Rucker, Alabama, to attend Nephew's commissioning as a Warrant Officer 1. He will then enter into Army flight training. Because his mom can't get off work to attend, he asked us to come and pin on his bars. The house sitter this time doesn't know how to take care of a cat, so boarding with Spotacus' vet is required. Poor guy.

Meanwhile, back on the ol' homestead, it's looking bare around here, now that all the RVs are elsewhere, and Tall and Short Friends' vehicles are no longer parked in the drive. Gave WLToo an idea for a hobby building. I hope we can get that built in a reasonable timeframe; I'm really sick and tired of having to work in the office around all his model train stuff that has to stay in a climate controlled environment. But first we have to rebuild the pool deck. Sigh.

The butterflies are migrating, so it's quite spectacular around here. With all our late summer/early fall wildflowers in full bloom, they have plenty to eat. We hope they'll still be plentiful when we get back, so we can take a photo of one of us in the midst of all the butterflies. Been trying for years, and haven't succeeded yet.

Three very nice looking bucks are wandering in and out of the place. Rut won't be in full swing until later in October, then hunting season begins (and all the poachers start shooting in non-hunting areas -- like around us). Hopefully, these bucks will leave some offspring. I really miss the days from just a couple years ago, when we had an entire herd of bucks, before the poachers shot just about all of them. They were beautiful to watch and never bothered us, just checked out the grass around the house twice a day. Now we're lucky to see the doe herd of only eight.

Still have at least two hummingbirds here, so we keep the feeder filled. Not sure when they'll leave, but since it's been raining so much, we do have mosquitoes for them to eat. A male cardinal stopped off yesterday. WLToo got a photo, but it's too hard to see.

Time to refill the hummingbird feeder, then hit the hay. Tomorrow's a long day.

Later, y'all.

Got back home this afternoon. Spotacus was happy to see us, happy to come home, but did express his opinion of us sending him to lockup by pooping in front of the litter robot. Now he's sleeping against my leg. I suspect all will be completely normal by bedtime.

Nephew is now a Warrant Officer 1 and will be in aviation training the next year to 18 months. He and his brother, who is in the process of enlisting in the Air Force, will make the sixth generation in a row to serve in the military. There was a break between the Civil War and Revolutionary War -- at least I haven't yet uncovered records of family military service between those wars. Probably did, but we don't have proof yet.

Heard from Obi-Wander's dealer just before we left. They've submitted the warranty work to Winnebago and are waiting for the approval.

Two hummingbirds are still here. We didn't notice any butterflies as we drove up the driveway, but we were tired. We'll look in the morning.

But now, I'm hitting the hay early. Later, y'all.

Congratulations to your nephews!

Spot-the-man is thrilled to have you home. He just has to express his opinion at times. [emoticon]

Looks like we missed the butterfly migration, very few out there. But two hummers still live here and have plenty of bugs to eat, so the feeder stays up.

Leoghaire came up to the porch yesterday. Haven't seen her up close in quite a while. She looks great.

Noisy in here. Our microwave died a couple weeks ago, and they are only now installing the new one. But we can't use it until the electrician comes tomorrow to change the electric line from 220 to 110. The old one was halogen lights microwave/convection. This one is just microwave. At least we'll gain an empty circuit in the circuit box.

Gotta move outside, it's just too noisy in here. Later, y'all.
