*whew*
I spent the weekend at home mostly to make sure Palisades didn't get out again, as he did last... Tuesday? My, it's been busy. Anyway, even though I rewired the electric fence (his escape wasn't primarily a hotwire failure; one of the big corner posts came down in the storm), I was getting no love from the fence charger, and was pretty stressed about it.

Today, I saw a couple places where the hot tape had come down in the wind, so I went out to fix it. And first checked that the battery was off -- seems I had left it off. And when I turned it on, there was joy and love and juice and little blinking lights and stuff. Guess the battery had run down when the fence came down, and given the lack of sunlight it had taken a few days to recharge again.

Mostly I am happy not to have to buy a new battery. And that Palisades remains in place. Still haven't unstuck the truck or made cookies for various people, let alone made the decluttering pass the house would like, but that is just fine. Life is nonetheless good.

Need a vacationing friend to motor up and help with truck-movings, fence repairings or even cookie-makings?

Oh, I wish... but am working through Thursday, and then have Bay Area commitments the next two nights. Would welcome the company.

During the day? *hope, hope* You could come over for the cookie-fest -- you don't live far from elflet's.

I'm working 5p-10p this week, off Friday.

If there are cookies, you shall have some. (The qualifier is necessary in order to keep me from going tharn at the drop of a hat, nothing personal. :-)

I meant to say... when I arrived home past midnight on Tuesday and had to fix fence alone in the dark by flashlight, I was pretty darn grateful for the Dewalt drill you gave me. It came up trumps. :-)

Maybe you need a bossy border collie to keep an eye on Palisades? Can you get him toys like a large boomer ball or something to play with to occupy his mischievous mind?

1) What kind of bestie is Palisades?

2) Where the heck to you live, anyway?

Well, I tell Feri people that Palisades is 950lbs of the Black Heart of Innocence. Pix here.

I live about 100 road miles NE of Sunnyvale, on the far side of Stockton.

Oh Palisades is so pretty. He must be wonderfully pettable.
