He grunted once or twice, grabbed a t-shirt and moccasins and stumbled to the window. He looked out, then turned on the light. And grunted again. Deciding that most burglars, even the dumb ones, don't make that much noise, he opened the door and went onto the porch. He saw movement and looked into the yard.
Him: "It's a raccoon. It's got the cat's food bowl."
Him: "Jinx's bowl. He's trying to steal it."
Me: "Hey! Bring that back, ya' stupid raccoon!"
By this time, hubby was out in the yard, with a flashlight, chasing the raccoon. It dropped the bowl and disappeared into the woods. Hubby retrieved the bowl and brought it back up, laughing. Mostly at me, I think.
"Great," I was thinking, "something else I have to remember to do every night, bring in the bowl from the porch." Then, another thought hit me. "Um, where's the water bowl?"
We looked around for a few minutes. It was nowhere to be seen. So now, I'm thinking, "Our son would love to have a coon-skin cap."

There's a daily cleanser, rejuvenating serum (sounds scientific, doesn't it?), makeup that claims to be "ageless", age defying moisturizer (I like the "defying" part) and of course, hair color.
There were a few other options, but the names sounded like they belonged at Home Depot: something called "primer"* and another called "filling and sealing treatment". There's also "resurfacing elixir". Now, if they can just come up with facial spackle, we're all set.
If it works, I can post close-up photos soon. If not, you'll only see distant, blurred images.
*Okay, I would have gotten the "primer", but they were out.

I also learned that, in spite of the increase of prices on so many things, I was able to buy a dispenser and refill candy for each of my three children for about $7, total.
And, to top it off, PEZ candy is made in the USA. Sweet.

According to the rodent from Pennsylvania, my tulips can safely emerge from the ground and start the show. Go ahead. Bloom.
