One of the many traditions of this time of year has always been the great raking of leaves over at Chez Gzmoohoo to prepare for the city vacuum men (see here). Alas, the Moohoo family now hires their guy to take care of that kind of thing. And here at our house, we have invested in an excellent piece of Toro Equipment (the Ultra Vac, if you must know) that makes all that raking unnecessary. Is it weird that I kind of miss it? I don't miss the blisters or occasional back pain, but it was a nice excuse to get outside in the waning nice days of fall. EMSA, the main yard maintenance member of the household, pronounces the Ultra Vac to be awesome, so I guess it's a net win.
In other signs of fall, Timberwolves Basketball has started up again. We went to the home opener against the Detroit Pistons - excellent seats as usual, thanks to my father-in-law:
|Well before game time, obviously.|
And now, today's photo of the cats. Do you think maybe it's time to take out the recycling?
