White Picket Fence

I want a white picket fence around my front yard, but for some reason, I'm having a hard time finding someone who is willing to build it for me. I wonder why? How hard can it be to build a little fence? I could do it myself, but I don't really want to put in the main posts. That involves digging, pouring cement, and ensuring the posts are straight. After that, it's just hammering boards together.

The reason for the fence would be to keep the dogs in the yard when I open the front door and let them out. I do that now and they wander away. Celie, my 13-year-old girl, isn't too bad. She stays close and will come in when I tell her to. But Buddy, the 8-year-old chihuahua, wants to go exploring, and pooping in the neighbor's yard. I'm afraid someone will shoot him if they catch him doing that!

A few days ago I spread some grass seed in my back yard, in the area that's mostly just dirt. It's coming up already! Yay. Now if I can just keep the dogs and cats off of it for a little while. That shouldn't be too hard because they don't want to go out in this heat, anyway!

I'm out of cat food so I need to go shopping today. It's already 5 PM, so I guess I'll be going tonight. I don't mind. I do a lot of shopping at night. This time of the year it's cooler, of course. And I don't have anywhere to be so I don't have to worry about getting up in the morning! Ha! I don't do that most days, anyway. I usually get up around noon. Occasionally I go through a spurt of getting up "early," but not lately. In fact, lately I've been even more tired than usual. In fact, I feel like taking a nap right now.

I watched "Iron Man" on DVD  yesterday. I liked it more than I thought I would. I don't usually go for that genre, but since I'm a Netflix member, I'll order and watch movies I otherwise might not. I mean, I'm paying the monthly fee, so I might as well order movies!
