MMM 352: Kill it with fire

So Pupster sent me this gallery last week of the clathrus archeri, or “octopus stinkhorn”.  It’s not edible, it’s hideous, and it stinks like methylamine to attract flies and wasps to spread its spores and propagate.  Destroy on sight, turn the earth, and bleach the mycellium.

Those aren’t eggs, those are the immature fruiting bodies yet to burst.

Happy Monday!

I still push and I still shove
I’m still hard to love
I ain’t changed, I’m still the same wise-ass I always was
They say the day will come
I’ll be too tired to run
Yeah, you can’t stop what’s comin’:
I’ll run until the wheels fall off
Run until the wheels fall off

MMM 333: Summer wanes

It’s still pretty darned hot here, but the nights are getting cooler.  Make the most of what remains if you’re due for snow in a few months.

She looks good in snow.

MMM 332: dismantled apple tree

About 2/3rds of it is onto the burn pile already, with some of the leafy bits still on a tarp in the front yard waiting to be hauled out back.  Couldn’t put a ton of time into it yesterday without getting pretty wiped out, I cut it down and then hauled for about 2 hours total.  90+ degrees both days I worked on it, and I managed to sunburn my back when I was hauling.

Ugh, the Smith machine.

MMM 330: Nobody died

We did a full 48 hours without mom this weekend, and it went as well as could be expected.  I was exhausted afterward and just barely made it out of bed this morning, though.  Should be a fun week on the job.

It took 45 minutes to get her hair to look right.  Just speculating.

MMM 329: hot and dry, or not

Blazing hot all weekend, so I didn’t get as much done outdoors as I’d have liked.  Got some trees trimmed along the western fence line just as it was starting to rain, but I didn’t get around to hauling them to the burn pile (which is already too large) on Sunday.  Did get a few more things moved out of the sun room, which we’re hoping to have at least presentable by Saturday when we celebrate Possum’s 3rd bday with the family.  Plenty to get ready by then.  At least the lawn is barely growing.

Eva doing a self-check.
