Orange Barrel Season? I guess it’s easy to forget that not everyone lives in the Great White Frozen North 🧡. Orange Barrel Season is also known as Road Construction Season and it usually gets into high gear at the beginning of May. At the end of Arctic Spring when we are *finally* beyond Ice Road Asteroid stage, the roads are dry, the traffic is light (sorta, sometimes) and everything is smooth sailing (sorta, sometimes). And then. Dun dun dun. We’re sorry, we cannot complete your commute. This will go on all summer and well into the fall. Very little construction goes on in the winter because the ground is frozen. Maybe a little cold-patching of the worst of the potholes and we have plenty of those. The roads in the Great Lake State are horrible pretty much everywhere.

That’s about all I have to say about that. The GG ran a wonderful errand for me today, picking up two more plastic Adirondack chairs over at Ace Hardware, one red and one purple. This is something I could’ve done by myself but I wasn’t sure if they would fit in the Ninja or not. And yes, plastic! I looooove the authentic wooden ones but they weigh a ton and I can easily move the plastic ones anywhere I want. I’ll probably post a pic sometime this weekend, not that you care about a couple of plastic yard chairs 🐽

Oh and now he is putting soil into big pots that I can stuff impatiens into. This is another thing I can do myself but it has taken him something like three minutes to do what would take me more like a half hour to do. Doy de doy de doy. Where is the soil? Doy de doy de doy. Where are the pots…

The parts of my life that I can write about online are mostly boring and this is about as exciting as it gets, at least today. Not that I don’t every throw a few nasty little sub-tweets into my blahg here and there [winkity-wink]. I can’t *always* be “good” [winkity-wink] but for today I am sitting out in the Landfill backyard enjoying life and ignoring the negatives. Hope you are too.

P.S. This is your annual jack-in-the-pulpit pic. Looks like a wee bit of blood root leaf below the jitp. Enjoy.

    Not a Trump fan here either!! Glad that many people are ignorant about Orange Barrel Season! 😉

    That’s a lovely Jack in the Pulpit photo. We saw some in Shawnee National Forest, and they’re not easy to photograph.

    I feel your pain for Orange Cone/Barrel Season. Our street appears to be close to done, but now they’re working on others in the neighborhood, so the straight shot to school has a few more corners in it.
