I am checking out the cat through the closed front door, and the cat is checking me out. The feline looks quite disinclined to make an effort to contain the squirreling going on among the leaves and maple seeds on my back deck ! That’s four days’ worth of leaves. They were all swept up by afternoon (by me)- but it’s going to be several more weeks before the neighbor’s maple tree is bare. Those big Canadian flag size leaves keep coming down.
