Sad News

This is my favorite time of the year. The rainy season has come to a close & the weeds are growing all over the hills. Oakland uses a herd of goats as fire abatement - the goats dot the hillsides chomping away at the new growth & clear the woods of fire danger. Goats are so cute & they do a good job.

We got home today to find that our copper rain chain was stolen. Our neighbor across the street heard some noise & came out to see a guy yanking down our chain, jump into the getaway car & screech down the street. Unfortunately he didn't catch the license plate number.

It's nice to know that our neighborhood is being cased for decorative items to steal.
