It’s hard to believe that the month of September will be here in a few days. The first official day of the fall season is September 22.
Grandson’s Dormitory Fire Scare:
I told you about my older grandson heading to college. Well, in the first week classes began, his dormitory caught fire.
I don’t know much about what happened. Just that the kids that lived there had to relocate elsewhere for a bit. I don’t know what damage was done yet.
Riley had just moved from Tulsa to Norman to attend the University Of Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago.
He was walking home from class and saw everyone gathered outside and was told there was a fire.
I’m sure I’ll hear more later. But what a way to begin your college years!
I had figured that by now I would be able to walk and drive my car. However, that hasn’t happened yet.
Every fall season I love to go to Woodward Park and Swan Lake and take photos of the trees turning colors. It’s so relaxing to just drive around and see the beauty of fall.
It’s not looking like I’ll be driving in September. Maybe October. I don’t want to miss the first fall breezes through my car window. That is always so refreshing after a hot and humid summer.
Mouse In The Storage Closet Outside:
Just after Steve next door told me that he saw a mouse, I saw one on my patio porch. He said he isn’t feeding the birds anymore because that’s likely what attracted them in the first place.
Many people feed the birds here, so you can be sure that they won’t go hungry.
Anyway, I saw the mouse about the same time Ivy did. She was poised at the living room patio door watching it through the glass patio door.
Ivy got pretty upset when the mouse came close to her on the other side of the door.
If the mouse noticed Ivy, a big hulking cat that would pounce if only glass didn’t separate them, it didn’t seem afraid.
Just now a squirrel was on the patio and Ivy raced from wherever she was to the door. The squirrels don’t seem afraid of her either, which I’m sure causes her a certain degree of consternation!
