A Dog-gone Thief!!

....Last spring I planted two strawberry pots with a total of about 22 plants. I've watched them take root from these lifeless gnarly bare-root plants and leaf out beautifully. By now I should have enough for my morning bowl of cereal ... but I've noticed that the berries I've been watching with anticipation have been disappearing one by one. Yesterday I watched in disbelief as my DAWG snagged a treat for herself. She's on my doo=doo list now and that's not a pretty place to be. Hubby suggested I place the pots just beyond her "invisible" fence line so she gets zapped should she dare take another treat.

Poor old girl!.....Love Terry

PS With your luck, YOU will be the one being zapped and THAT won't be a pretty sight Mrs. Mac!

Dear Mrs. Mac,
I have spent some time catching up with your blog posts. You always have something interesting on your agenda.
I´m vacationing to and fro and now my daughter has snapped my PC for business use. Seems that her beloved and highly praised as well as priced Mac (book) don´t do it´s tricks on an old fashioned modem. I am struggling with hubby Gunnar´s machine. It feels so strange, like wearing some strange´s clothes.
Not comfy at all.

I read about your soldierson over at Terry´s. What a strong and moving post! You know he´s in my prayers along with Pilot and young Joey.
Having a twenty year old daughter, I think I could never cope with her being a soldier. Luckily that´s not an option.
There´s nothing like fear to bring a mother on bended knees. That I know for sure. Mine are sore..
We know that God has promised to protect and carry our prayerchildren. Let´s cling to that.

An other topic; the snails. We´ve got imported some Iberian snails,called murder snails, they are all eating. I´m waging a constant war against them.
Best advise I found in an American feel-good novel. Sprinkle salt on the ground around the pots. That is if there aren´t any vulnerable plants growing in the immediate neighborhood.Salt is weed killer as well. I you see the snail, just let him have a taste of salt, and he´s a goner immediately.

Now, my eyes and my neck will not play more with this machine, be it ever so sophisticated.
Have a wonderful summer´s outdoor week,
From Felisol
