One thing was that ants got into the cat food I leave on the back porch (didn't know ants ate dry cat food. Maybe it was kitty spit they were after.) I cleaned it up, but some of the ants got on me and they've been turning up here and there ever since. It reminds me of when I was ten years old and played in the dirt. I was always picking up ants then.
Portia has taken to staying away all night and turning up at six or seven o'clock in the morning, when I'm ready to go to sleep. Doesn't she know I'm nocturnal?
Also, fans of the late Les Paul comment.
