08:07 – Happy Anniversary to us. Barbara and I were married 30 years ago today. I’m surprised that she’s managed to put up with me. It can’t have been easy.

10:54 – Colin is lying at the front door, keeping a close eye on the tree trimmers, who come out every eight or ten years to trim back trees that are growing into the power lines. Sometimes they just trim back branches; other times, they take out whole trees. Colin is outraged when the garbage, recycling, and yard waste carts are picked up because he regards it as stealing our stuff. Same thing when the brush truck comes by, or the leaf vacuum. So far, though, he hasn’t said a word. He’s just lying there watching. Of course, the tree guys are in our next-door neighbors’ yard cutting down a tree right now. We’re next, so it’ll be interesting to see if Colin is outraged when they start to steal trees or branches from our yard.
