What was a far less pleasing site where the grape vines on the front porch, picked clean of their fruit. Now what am I to snack on when I get hungry? And they really were picked clean. I combed the vines this morning for a few leftover fruits, and found only isolated samples, all but a few of those not even ripe!

Finally, it was nice to be able to put out the new "Open" flag this morning, one that has no rips or tatters. It's not even dirty yet. Here it is, flying from its holder on the fence, juxtaposed against a picture of our old one on my desk. Quite an improvement, wouldn't you say?
That is the good news. A considerably less joyous discovery was also made today, but nothing an exterminator won't be able to quickly fix. Part of the agenda for tomorrow is a presentation on good bugs and bad bugs. Suffice it to say, we've got some bad ones in the Sydenstricker House, but it looks like we've caught them early. I'll post more on that when I know more; let it aside for now. Today is a good day!
