5:09 on the rock.
Busy day.  Took rejected collar, too delicate, back to Tractor Supply.  Walked in the Columbia Park.  Lunched at 4 Keys in North Eaton.  Shopping for chili-o dinner sides for Deb and Sue and Meghan and me.
 We will be balanced at dinner 4 people and 4 dogs.  One is a puppy named Boise who thinks he is human.  Then there is Boss and Bode and another big dog. I forget his name, but I like him.  I love all the dogs and all the people.  I want hem all to feel welcome and comfortable in my home.  All but Deb and Boss will stay the night before heading for their home in New York State.
So I got to go cook.  CUL EV1

6:36 bales.  No excuses. I am just slow. LOL
Susie and Meghan and Boise and Bodie and Brooks just left for home in New York.  Eight hours away.
 Had a wonderful but too short visit including Debbie and Boss last night for an hour or so. Puppy Boise is the star.  A little 8 week old Papillion-Border Collie mix girl.  So full of energy and playfulness she tired us all out trying to keep up with her little legs.  Just so fast!
So sorry for your loss Cal.
Did not look in on bears or falcons yet.
 Nice cool cloudy morning here in the Cleveland area. 61 degrees and very little breeze at 9:30. Will walk or try riding bike a little later if rain holds off.  Gotta remember to go to the bank almost ran out of money again last night.  Had pizza delivered and could just barely scraped up enough to pay him.
For now I will say so long.  CUL and GB

Tasha at Work - UPDATE October 13, 2021
Red maple leaf
Red maple leaf
As Tasha excavates away, a person wonders what kind of den she is trying to make. At this point, it’s looking like a nice deep bed spot to fill with leaves for more insulation than in the past. Sharon placed a big pile of leaves outside the den for Tasha to use when she is ready. Here "Taught" caught Tasha in a 3-minute daytime video and a 5-minute view of her at night. Nice to see!

Tasha continues to work on the rock den - 10/12/21

At the WRI, the red maple tree that was just beginning to drop leaves when this picture was taken on October 10 now is down to five leaves.

Thank you for all you do.

Yes had a good visit.  Just so sad my brother and Joan could not be here.  They would have loved to see Susie, Meghan, Debbie, and all the dogs.  Bode, Boss, Boise, and Brooks. Just trying to remember all the names and genders. Girl, boy, girl(baby), and boy. EV1 had a good time and a good rest.
 They were on their way back from a month of far western road trip, and were really glad to see some greenery in the fields and yards.  New York will look really wonderful to them too, because it is home.
It is very nice to see Tasha working in the rock den.  High hopes for her to use it this winter.  She even took in some leaves.
Gonna go back and visit them now.  So CUL and GB

 Hi Cal and Joho ...   

Cal - Do you have a rainy season, or is it all year?  We have a monsoon season, but for the last 20 years have been suffering through a drought.  This year was different and we had a normal rainy season and it was wonderful.  One of the ways you can tell an Arizonan from other people is that when it rains, they go outside and stand in it.  🌨🌨🌵 🌵🌴🌨

Joho -  Your family get togethers sound nice, even the dogs are special and included in your family time together.  I know how much you all miss Joan.  When we do things here, I miss that Larry isn't here to enjoy them with us, but I like to think that he knows and is smiling.

There was Oktoberfest up at the village in the mountains north of town, and at the Skiing site too.  I guess Fall is here???  Hard to tell in Southern Arizona.

Hi Rues and Ra, and Lupine - of course, you are missed.

5:57 cactus and water?
Yesterday was a different day.  Spent lots of time trying to find out why smoke alarm over my bed went off at 3AM.  No good answers anywhere.  Finally google says maybe dust, maybe surge in power due to Power Company switching something in early morning.  I decided this was the cause so that I could go to sleep.  Which I did an hour early due to being tired all day.
I mean this was a full fledged alarm.  Not some small battery beep warning. Never heard one before in the night.  We used to set them off by broiling or frying in our split level, but they were nothing like this one.  I was pretty shook up for a few minute until it stopped screaming.  I got up and headed out the bedroom door to see if the furnace room had smoke.  By the time I was 3 or 4 steps outside the bedroom screaming stopped.  Went around looking for cause.  Found nothing scary.  So I went back to bed.  Don't think I slept well, but I did sleep until about 7am.  The I spent the day trying to learn about alarms etc.
 Started with the fire department.  Got sent to the 911 office when I punched the button for alarm information.  Happened three times.  So I punched some button other than alarm info. and got a secretary who listened but was not much help.  Then I gave up on them and went to google.
 Got a lot of ideas there.  One was electric surge. Later I called the Ohio Edison Electric Company and got a machine that kept saying to report an outage etc.  I wanted to talk about a possible last night outage or surge as google suggested so I kept punching buttons on their robot.  Finally they say sorry nobody here til office hours see ya later.  So if no outage, no chit chat. I will call soon to confirm google info about early morning switching etc. Now I will say so long for a while.  GB

yes Cal,
I finally got to talk to two women at Ohio Edison.  Both insisted they had no way of knowing if there was a major switching action at 3 am in my area as had been suggested by google or the fireman.  They also insisted it was not caused by anything they did.  How would they know that?
I have the same kind of alarm I have always had.  The low battery alarm is a small beeping gradually louder as time passes.  This was a full fledged blasting alarm, and I think it was more than one unit.  Not sure because it stopped too soon. I am satisfied it was a surge of sorts, and am not worried at all.
Watching the ballgame now.  Umpire is awful. 
See you all tomorrow.  GB

7:40 snow trek.
Rainy here gentle and cool 54 degrees. Gonna stay in I think at least this morning.  Like to read paper with cereal and coffee, but no paper yet. C_T has an answering machined saying leave a message after waiting on the line for 6 minutes. WTH
 Sometime they will leave some outside the office for us to pick up, but with a machine i don't know if some are there.  Sometimes no-one is at the office on Saturday. So I think I will just run down and see if I can get one.  Better late than never.
BP still running higher than usual.  I think it is due to back injury and constant pain.  I know that pain can elevate BP.  Have a Primary Dr. appointment on Nov 2nd I think.  He will probably change something then.
Kind of glad the cooler weather is here.
Hope you are all well and comfortable.  GB
