Cute Rat; SOTU; Sauce

A cute Norway rat was on the deck yesterday eating seeds that Ron had put out for the birds. Ron cleaned it up and I cut back the autumn clematis, which had created a nice hiding spot, and de-plugged the shop vac.

SOTU last night. Disruption in the chamber. Good.

Made sauce this morning. I figured Ron, who had surgery today in his doctor’s office, wasn’t going to do it, and the veggies were getting soft.

Final claim settlement check cleared so I paid bills yesterday. We are hoping to sign the P&S on Friday.

Ron got through the surgery fine, but is hurting now. He does have his prescription; the pharmacist wished him well!
