01:06 am: Little Notes
When I got up this morning, Spirit had torn nine pieces off the envelope and since then, four more. She loves tearing those apart. She holds them down with her front paws, takes a bite, tears it off, spits it out, and goes for more.

When I went out to get mail, I noticed a neighbor's Jeep had a "IUPAT Supports Obama" sticker on it, plus a "Got Hope?" sticker. (International Union of Painters And related Trades -- I had to look it up.) When I came back in, facing the doors on our condo, I saw she'd put an Obama/Biden sign on the outside of the landing outside her door. No political signs are allowed in the condos at all (well, bumperstickers are okay) so I don't know how long it will stay, but it was nice to see.

Before I went for mail, there were three squirrels chasing each other on and off the porch and Shiva was ready to jump, except for the screen door. As I drove down the block, a six-or-so-year-old boy was chasing one of the squirrels himself, and was very close to catching it when the squirrel veered onto the street/parking lot.

About 11:30pm, I heard heavy truck outside (and Shiva retreated to the castle) and I went out to look. Someone's car was being towed for being in a handicapped spot down the block without a tag/plate. The police will frequently forgive the fine if you actually have a tag and forgot to put it up, but you still pay for the tow truck. Shiva has finally become calm enough to come out of the castle. He's afraid of noisy machines.

One of the things I love about your posts is that I get such a feel for where you live, and I'm always impressed by your keen eye for details.

I don't think I'm going to get my own show (Psych, The Mentalist), but I'm always curious about things and I think that makes me see more.
