Well, things here are "starting" to get back to normal after Tropical Storm Ernesto blew through our area last Friday. Elmer & Button were reduced to only electricity provided by generator from Friday until Tuesday evening. Elmer was very cross to have missed "Desperate Housewives" on Sunday night, as the cable was also out. Right now, they are both seated in the kitchen window watching as the tree company removes two large trees, one fallen, the other not. They have been very interested in what the men are doing and Elmer felt obliged to bark his approval, since one of the trees was one that I regularly backed into when leaving the driveway. Of course, we have to have our carpets cleaned as well, due to the fact that neither one of the Himselves would venture out into the storm when it was so convenient to relieve oneself in the sunroom! I hope that we don't have any more of those this year!
