Kids & Dogs  
They like me. No idea why. I seem to be the most favourite grownup on the block. I think it may be in part because I'm an exotic novelty: not LDS, not in their Ward, as most of the neighbours are. S, from across the street, and a friend, just about knocked me over on the way in the door, begging me for odd jobs to do so they could earn money. S comes over frequently, and I let her cut roses for her mom - well, I cut them, since I don't want her to cut herself with the shears. I've helped her little brother find rocks for his lemonade stand, and given them money for their Boy Scout troop. So they're currently cleaning the glass on the French doors outside, and S is going to fill my bird fountain and give the chickens scratch when I'm out of town next week. I was trying to think of chores that involved no sharp objects. They're delighted, and apparently, I overpay, judging from the glee when I made them an offer. I'll never get rid of them now LOL

I think that is awesome, babe! It's hard to fool kids and animals, as you well know, so that just about proves that you're cool beans. Well, I knew that anyway, but I'm only a kid-at-heart, and I don't think that counts. Hee hee.

hee, it's good to be the cool grown-up! I commend you on giving them a chance to earn money--their parents will be impressed and you've given the kids themselves the opportunity to build that work ethic!

Yay for connecting with the kids in the neighborhood!

Did the nearby fires get under control, by the way? Colorado's having awful ones, too.

There was another one Wed about 20 miles away. It burned down several houses before the got it under control. So many fires up in N Utah, I can't even keep track.
