Open Thread – Behind Curtain #1

It’s a gorgeous day here in the valley. The sun is sunning, and the clouds are clouding, and the sky is blue. And imagine my surprise when I parted the curtains and … Brian!

Today, I decided I’d better get some weeding done in the garden.  I had only pulled up about 4 fireweed, and was wondering whether I should go get a pair of gloves to pull up all the little rose bushes that seem to have taken hold, when I heard a twig snap.  Usually it’s…
