The Fox Next Door
So a couple of days ago Preston called me to come look at something in the back yard where he was. Over in our neighbor's back yard we saw this cute little fox! He was eating the food that had fallen from their bird feeder. He hung around long enough for me to go back in and get my camera. It was really cool but then I started thinking...I wonder if he would eat a little white 7 pound Maltese (our dog) if given the chance...hmmmm. That's a little scary.

Chase's New Eating Habits
So Chase crawled into the kitchen a few days ago while Preston and I were talking in the hall. He was barely in there any time when I went in to get him and noticed something unusual in his hands. He was holding a little zip-loc baggie that contained a bunch of very small screws. I saw that he put one in his mouth so I ran over to retrieve it. Not only did I dig that one out of his mouth but also 4 more! Wow! I'm still not sure if he swallowed one or not but I'm pretty sure it would have "surfaced" by now if he had. Lesson learned...Leave NOTHING within reach, even if it's up out of site on the table. Also a little scary.

Tightwad Update
Target (MP) Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal = good
Target (MP) baked beans = OK
Wal-Mart Apple sauce = good (exactly the same)
Target (MP) Peanut butter = good
Target (Market Pantry) Cereal Bars = Excellent (I've said before that I don't like the Wal-Mart ones but these are great!)
SureFine brand Cereal Bars (bought them at the local grocery) = Yuck! (again, very scary)
