Front yard, back yard.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
Front yard, back yard....
We got vandalized last night.

Well, only a little.

Both home by 5-ish, dog walked, animals and us fed, we were in the living room watching a rather cool film, when we heard a thud and then a ding-dong.

No, Avon was not calling. Peter Pumpkinhead was.

Person or persons unknown had tossed a pumpkin on our doorstep, then rang our doorbell so we'd know we'd been targeted for such abuse. We suspect it was random "galloots" (as my mother would've termed them), and not the Idiot from the ongoing Thing Next Door. If it was meant to scare or intimidate, it rather failed; they didn't even accomplish much of a Smashing Pumpkin at all, and if anything it rather resembled an orangey Pac-Man:


I've threatened to hunt them down and return it to them with an even more terrorizing object: a DVD copy of Pixels.


We each did our own Things throughout the day today, but ended it together in an unexpected place:  dinner in the greenhouse.

Yup. Less than two weeks before Christmas, and we're still eating outside.

In fairness,we had a space heater on, but it might not have even been necessary: the ribs kept the room plenty warm (and tasty).

Similar readings and forecasts were reported from all over the Northeast-including Philly, where Da Bills will play tomorrow in projected 60F temps.  And they say global warming is a hoax.

Speaking of Da Said Bills: ESPN is running a two-hour documentary right now about their 1991-94 Super Bowl run, more a love story to the city and the team's fans than anything focusing on those actual four games we'd like so much to forget.  I'll try to work that in tomorrow night; if any more galloots fire projectiles at us, I can only hope they'll go Wide Left and hit the Idiot in HIS house.

We refer to them as "Hideous Lumpy Youts." As in My Cousin Vinnie: "Dese two youts..."
