Gussie, come home!!

Gus is at sleepover camp this week. He's never been to camp before, let alone sleepover camp, so we weren't sure what to expect. Campers are allowed to call home each evening. So each evening since Sunday, we've been waiting for a call. But no, not a peep. At first I was relieved (oh, phew, he's having a blast!); then I was a little wistful (hey, why isn't he missing us??). We pick him up tomorrow. I am dying to hear everything about his week!!

In the meantime, the nonstop rain and general dampness around here has encouraged the wisteria in the backyard to behave in an unrestrained and unacceptable manner. It's wrapped itself around the bird feeder:

It's even tried to push in the back door (Silly is on patrol):

This plant and I wage war every summer. I cut it back to the nubbin and then it happily insinuates itself into every nook and cranny in the back yard. I have to go to Home Depot and get some proper pruning shears this weekend. Watch out, wisteria!!
