Bye Bye Thoreau

I finally finished Walden (for our reading group) and I never have to go there again. Hurray!! Although I though Thoreau's Life in the Woods was a lot of dribble I was surprised at agreeing with him on the "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" which was at the end of my book but I'm not sure it's at the end of all the Pond books. Anyway I have been reading "Going Rogue" (the Sarah Palin book the Terry got me for my birthday) at the same time as I was reading Walden. I think they may agree with each other on government, only she say what she means in one paragraph and he takes 30 pages and doesn't stay on the subject. Looking forward to the next book.

I was trying to make dinner and the electric can opener broke, AH you say use the old hand held opener, well that would work if I was one of those people who's hands worked but here I sit with cans to open and now having to wait for the husband to show up from work.

I think this is the week for pruning around here. Got the peach tree done, thanks to my neighbor Jerry and Terry did the 6 rose bushes today. The pond pump stopped working so we went in search of a new one and now the pond is looking good again. Boingo caught a giant lizard and ate about half of it. I bet that was a battle to see.
