Good morning all.

Busy at work. Busier at home. Computer acting up. Might have a trojan. If it's a false positive (which I expect), I have no explanation for the evil computer activity.

Art fair and Greenfield Village Ragtime festival (where an old friend is playing) and other music and work conflicted with camping trip a day's drive away this weekend, so camping lost out.

Went wild at art fair when I got out of work at 19:15 last night. Stopped at 5 booths. Bought 4 things at 3 of them, and got 2 free gifts and saw 1 friend from 30 years ago.

Watched a woman write a check for a single item, for about 3 times the complete balance in my checkbook, or 9 times the amount I spent at all the booths combined. Guess I spent more at one of the booths than she spent in tax, but YEEPERS!

Decided that 2 hours of walking, half of an hour of it (broken down into 2 roughly 15 minute intervals) at speed counted as exercise, so I actually managed to get to bed at 00:30 this morning rather than 45 minutes later.

Have now tried out the Burrito Borimex (on State) and they were pretty tasty.

Have needed to mow the lawn for most of a week, but due to getting home after dark or rain or exhaustion, it hasn't happened. And that's just the front lawn. The back lawn is about a foot thick now ... hope nobody calls the city on me.

Have seen some cute wild strawberries in the yard. Haven't harvested any yet, but if they're still there when I mow I will. Should shoot them first.

Another Mexican (or "Mexican" or "Mexican-ish") restaurant!

As for the strawberries: is shooting them a Michigan thing? I don't believe we engage in that sort of activity here in California.

Yay! You noticed. And, from the review, they might be pretty authentic.

*snort*. Since I'd shot it's relatives as babies, I figure I shouldn't be ageist.

What kind of weapon do you use on a wild strawberry, anyway? You indicate that they are cute, but IMO those are the really dangerous ones.

Over here on the west side of the state we have domestic blueberries. This year the crop is huge, with some berries nearly the diameter of a nickel! And even though they are "domestic" I like to keep my 30.06 shotgun handy (loaded with buckshot, of course!) in case the berries gang up on me. Scattered shot always puts them in their place.

Oh, I wasn't messing around -- I used a Canon.

Those blueberries sound lovely -- especially if they actually have flavor.

Hmmm... I've learned that in some places you need to eat your turkeys etc. carefully to avoid lead poisoning, but I never thought of having to pick through my blueberry pies.
