Agustin had told me if the irrigation system was putting too much water on the ground that I should call him and he would come and adjust it. Yesterday, I had had enough and turned off the system and called him. He arrived this morning and adjusted the system to run for only two minutes at a time, rather than the six minutes it had been drenching the ground with until I turned it off. But he cautioned that it must run every day for two weeks, then it can be turned back to every other day. So it is done.
But meanwhile, late yesterday afternoon I came outside and saw this sight on my neighbor's roof.
Yes those are all the aforementioned mourning doves, just waiting for the water or more grass seed or something. A funny sight.
But they weren't the only creatures seeking high places yesterday. After dinner last night as I came into the kitchen to clean up I spotted this high on top of our refrigerator.
That's Blackwell, our young boy cat. He has an affinity for high places, for whatever reason. But he apparently doesn't like being caught there and photographed.
I had barely taken the first photo when he was headed for the ground. Good Blackwell.
Yes, folks, so goes life in the fast lane!
