notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

You Arrogant Fool...

Just as I was pronouncing that we should all bask in the smug glow generated by the fact we would not have to face a demon duck of doom the shadow of danger hangs over my head.

I now realise that I was living in a fool's paradise.

Coming home I saw the headline "London Under Attack from Killer Wasps". "Shit", I thought, "this is some serious shit". Then I thought, "yes, this is some serious ass blog material".

Upon coming home, I decided to find the story online. I couldn't find it. I cursed myself for delaying putting up the post, but found this story instead from 4 years ago. I imagine it's basically the same situation...but wait, WHY can't I find a story about these killer wasps when it was headline news yesterday?? They've obviously evolved and are taking over our media before killing us all...As I write this the day could not be calmer...not a cloud in the sky, not a peep from the neighbours, barely a whisper from the birds.

Too calm, again, a fool's paradise.

This maybe my last post folks. If it is, all I request is that one of my co-bloggers writes a commemorative post for me in the spirit of one of my inane comments on the passings of some animal...

Wait a second, is that the dish washer making that droning humming sound??

I am too scared to even be able to find a decent picture of a swarm of wasps...
