Banner Haus News and Musings
Just slappin' this one up. My nerves are jangling because we just had to change an area devoted to Festive Gift Bags (Feminine) into the new Teen Birthday Cards area, Serious and Humorous Split. Before this, we had only three cards especially for teens, and none of the grandmas could ever find them unassisted. Gosh, these grandmas STUFF the cards with money, evidently.
And, we are redoing the kids' cards into a special Kid Zone area. This mainly consists of putting up a sign that says "Kid Zone" and switching all the girls' cards into the boys' cards area, and vice versa. Don't ask me what this is supposed to accomplish! I think there is far too much mingling already. Is it any accident that I always find the Miley Cyrus card snuggling up against the Spiderman card?
Well, I'm glad for the upheaval in a way. It gets boring when I have all the cards memorized. "Oh, the Bakugan It Is Time card goes HERE...G-Force Special Day goes HERE...Dora the Explorer You Are 3 goes HERE...To A Special Granddaughter Glitter Kitty Wearing Crown goes HERE..."
My grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle.

I'm pretty sure this is a bee. Once again, some European Paper Wasps have built a nest on the front porch, this time hanging down in the middle of the door frame. One wasp is always guarding the nest, so we can't get it down and move it. It crawls up and guards the little "stem" that the nest hangs from when it sees me coming with the hemostats. Guess I have to put our "Beware of Wasps" sign back up. Between the wasps and the harvester ants, the front porch is a very unwelcoming place.
