    • Yes squirrels are very athletic aren't they, fascinating watching the different ways they manage to find of getting at  the bird feeders, I've long  given up trying to deter the ones in our garden, and now their separate feeder is broken I can't really stop them from feeding off the other feeders (which they did anyway).   Much cooler here too after a lovely Saturday, and also much wetter!

    • Our neighbours' grandchildren were visiting them today and, Mike, their Grandpa and also our "groundskeeper" had piled all the fallen leaves in our side yard ready for mulching with the lawnmower.  It was a magnet for the kids, five and ten years old, and they came across the road to play in the leaves. It was lovely to see youngsters enjoying rolling around in the leaves.  It has been a long time since our grandchildren were young enough to do that.  A bit of nostalgia but pleasant.
    • The languages, especially the dead,
      The sciences, and most of all the abstruse,
      The arts, at least all such as could be said
      To be the most remote from common use,
      In all these he was much and deeply read;
      But not a page of any thing that 's loose,
      Or hints continuation of the species,
      Was ever suffer'd, lest he should grow vicious.

      His classic studies made a little puzzle,
      Because of filthy loves of gods and goddesses,
      Who in the earlier ages raised a bustle,
      But never put on pantaloons or bodices;
      His reverend tutors had at times a tussle,
      And for their Aeneids, Iliads, and Odysseys,
      Were forced to make an odd sort of apology,
      For Donna Inez dreaded the Mythology.
        Lord BYRON, Don Juan, canto I
