We've heard about the IRS phone scam for some time already, but it wasn't until this week that they started calling us. Persistently. Up to six calls a day, each time threatening that this is the final notice. They come from three different numbers, but this one amused me for some reason. Didn't they stop to think that IRS agents probably don't make calls to people about their taxes while using a cell phone?
It continues to be cool and wet. Buddy has been spending time perched on the back of our couch staring longingly at what could be, if only it became sunny and warm.
On Thursday afternoon Rosebud and I ventured out into the rain to an event she had really wanted to attend. We came up behind an Amish man delivering a load of flowers. It was a welcome splash of pretty, and Rosebud quickly snagged several pictures of it.
At the event, there were quite a few mallard ducks calmly waddling about. This one seemed really tame, and came right up to us.
We were introduced to Wickles. All I can say is ....... where were they all my life? So very good! I usually pass on pickles. I don't care for dill pickles, and the sweet varieties aren't that special either, but these .... I could eat them three times a day.
Then there was this guy. Wood peckers are pretty, but there was no way we wanted this one to drill large holes into the tree in front of the house. We had to chase the persistent thing away. There are plenty of trees to choose from in our area, so there's no need for him to damage ours.
