Tomorrow we are going to Lake Placid for a brief sojourn with Cate’s brother and his wife. We will be there for 4 July so will miss the knees up in the apartments next door. Last year this went to 4:00 AM.
We did not get out of bed to look but it sounded like they finished the night by throwing each other through the front windows of the apartment block.
I am sure they will have fireworks and patriotic songs at Lake Placid so we will be able to enter into the spirit of things.
The back deck has been finished. We had hoped that we had made it cat proof but – and it took her some time – Monika has found that she can jump down from the gate onto the steps – and then into the garden.
We cannot sit out there and relax if we constantly have to watch the cats. Further thought is required as to how I can make escape impossible. I have a number of ideas including pigeon spikes and an electric fence.
