I don't blame you TD.  I may watch the Ottawa celebrations if it does not conflict with my pancake breakfast.

My lovely neighbours who make sure I am looked after when I hurt my elbows when I fell, and make sure I am OK when they have not heard or seen me and lend me their dog Guthrie so that I can walk around with some purpose are away for a few days and asked me to water their tomatoes.

While there I noticed how shaggy their little front garden looked so I thought I would take my lawnmower across plus cable as I had found an outlet thinking it would make a nice little surprise as they are a busy little family with husband working mixed 12 hour night and day shifts, one very active little girl and  another baby on the way plus one large dog and two kitties and two vehicles to maintain.

So, I took along the cable that I thought was the right length, I didn't need the 100 foot one, only to find that although the cable fit into the outlet,  the other end of the cable did not fit into the lawnmower, being one of those flat ends that has several holes.  So back I went to my home to get the longer cable that had the right ends. So all was well, until I tried to start the mower and nothing happened. Either the electricity was off or the outlet was dead. So I had to take the lawnmower back uphill all the way.  Checked the mower and that was OK.  Disappointing to say the least. Mad

While enjoying my breakfast this morning looking out at my garden through the side window, there was a big black bear snacking off my cherry tree.  I opened the window and told him to go away, which he did (good bear), now I will have to go out and prune some of the lower branches, pick what ripe cherries I can reach and figure out how to keep bears off the tree.

I am thinking of making a portable cage around the trunk that can be moved to the apple tree when the apples ripen.  It needs to be light but secure.   Perhaps four frames lashed together so that I can dismantle it and move a piece at a time?

I would be living in constant fear of finding one of those bears creeping up on me while I worked in the garden. 

KJ you are our "bear whisperer".

That is a great idea!
