I'm sorry I don't have a camera here with me because I am in Maine, and there is a wonderful strong wind, and Alfie is acting like Baryshnikov, leaping and twirling.

I stopped on the way up here to have lunch with my son, dauughter-in-law, and two grandsons, who live in a suburb of Portland. It is my younger grandson, 5, who says so many oddball and amusing things that his parents keep a list. Yesterday was not particularly unusual but it's a good example. His older brother, 8, had called some neighborhood friends and invited them over to meet Alfie. When the doorbell rang it was the younger one who answered it and let in two children.

"There's Alfie," he said, pointing to the dog.

Then, gesturing toward me: "And over here we have a famous writer."

I am only here for two days, in order to let in the exterminator tomorrow. It is MOUSE season, when the field mice seek warmth....and food....and find both in my house. I arrived yesterday afernoon and spent several hours cleaning up mouse droppings and throwing away the things they had opened and eaten, or half-eaten, in the pantry. They consumed an entire box of penne but left two boxes of spaghetti...go figure. Croutons...gone. I picture them viewing my pantry as a restaurant: "I'll have the penne, please, and a Caesar salad."

It's too bad so many children's books portray them as cute, and sweet. If you give a mouse a cookie...RIGHT. He then runs around your house, gnaws the woodwork, makes nests by unravelling your cashmere sweaters, and poops everywhere, including in the drawer where all the silverware is kept.

I could do a new kind of picture book about mice but it would never be published because it would involve POISON and TRAPS. Hey! I could even do it in rhyme!

Litlle mousie, quit your bitchin'
You are welcome in my kitchen.
View the menu; take your pick:
Cyanide, or arsenic?

I would title it "Goodbye Mousie" except that my friend Robie Harris has already used that title.

Very nice blog posts Ms. Lois. I wish everyone had a life like you. It would have been awesome. I liked the small daily adventures you have with your children and grandchildren. Very few people are lucky to have that. If you are worried about their higher education after high school, I can suggest some best online colleges for them. Always happy to help.

the main components of this all kinds of sensor are the emitter, detector and the Retro-reflector Nagano keiki Pressure sensor . The emitter and the detector are in abs speed sensor the same package. The Retro-reflector is placed little far from the sensor. The light from the emitter is reflected off the Retro-reflector and detected by mazda 6 suction control valve . When the target passes between the suction control valve and Speed Sensor the Retro-reflector the beam is not reflected back to Pressure Sensor . Here the problem can be that the beam could reflect from the target itself. For this the polarising filter is used in the sensor. Pressure Switch
