I thought of you this week while I was on my trip - the first day I met a young lady who was headed out the next day to fly to Colorado where she will spend the next 4 months working on a dude ranch. From the pictures she has posted it looks like she's a bit more in the deserty part of the state vs. the mountains.

I feel for anyone being menaced by brush fires - even if the fire isn't a direct threat, just living with the smoke and ash can be nasty.
Growing up where I did wildfire season was a mixed bag - it was scary when they'd start/move close to the valley, but at the same time a lot of the local economy thrived on the influx of crews, several folks (DD's bio-dad included) worked summer fire crew, etc. It's weird to think how much a part of "normal life" fires became.

So there is a monster loose in my house I need to find today. Ugh.
-- and I thought it was bad when I had that same experience the other day with a big spider......was getting out of the shower, saw it across the floor - grabbed a towel so I could dry off enough not to fall on my butt chasing after it and looked back to see no spider......pretty sure it might be reasonable to just burn the house down

The "joy" of living in certain areas.....though one would think that even if not official delivery surely one could count on a good friend to bring needed supplies, and ice cream is definitely an necessity of life in my opinion.

Is there a mama cat involved here or are you hand rearing? Only asking as that looks like the sort of place a mama cat might see as a great place to hide her kitten from the kiddos well intended attention given how little it looks to be.
