...and I kind of expected it to be that way so, when I got there I made two quick stops for things. One thing I found and the other - some flats petunias looked as if they had been through a hurricane. I suppose that the weekend in springtime crowd will do that at Homer's garden department. I left the flowers and just grabbed six bags of topsoil. The line was not too long and actually went fairly quickly and that was good because I had 25 frozen mice already thawing out some in my car (and it was a warm sunny day) out in the lot and in addition I had a cardboard box with four live mice inside of it also in my car. Luckily for me the live ones were still in the box when I got back to my car and the frozen ones, that I had wrapped in a cloth bag and some plastic bags, will still mostly frozen.
Wondering why the mice - snake food. Not sure that my newest Ball Python takes thawed from frozen so bought it a few live ones just in case it does not. Got them at the meeting of my local herp society today. Also was able to get rid of a male bearded dragon there to someone who wanted it and gave me a donation for the society as an adoption fee.
Just another day in Paradise, no work around the house although I will have to take care of my critters before the day is over. Tomorrow, I go back to redoing my back lawn and whatever other drudgery I can find to do around the house.
All the best,
