Random on a Sunday.

There is a woodpecker that attacks our cedar siding every autumn. S/he is at it again, tap-tap-tapping out there. Why our siding, I wonder? We are surrounded by woods, and there are plenty of dead trees still left from a horrendous windstorm last spring. Go peck on a tree somewhere, Woody! Leave my house alone!

Smokey made an errand trip to the Twin Cities on Thursday, and one of his stops was Trader Joe’s. Couple cases of wine for me (I am so far from a wine snob I am somewhere beyond Pluto), couple more chunks of TJ’s blue cheese (great stuff, and comparable to other blues that sell at twice the price, imho), and a couple bags of their salt-and-pepper potato chips.

Those chips are my only guilty pleasure (all my other guilty pleasures have been promoted to simply pleasures). I cannot resist them. I have to keep a clip on the bag so they don’t call my name from the pantry.

    I LOVE the S & P chips. And we have a woodpecker that goes after the TV antenna. Wierd.

    Woodpeckers are looking for insects that their keen hearing detects under cover.
