The beginning of the screening process

Hello?…. Is anyone still out there?… Hello?....

I realize that due to the extreme lack of postings, most all of our readers have long since moved on to other endeavors, but hopefully, a few dedicated fans will come back and see this.

We begin our news recap with what has become a routine item: The carpenter told us that he’ll be in touch “by the end of this week.” (No, you’re not imagining it; we have heard this before…smile_sad For example, see here and also here.)

Meanwhile, after much discussion and deliberation, we finally ordered a high-riser for AMG’s room. It’s scheduled to arrive towards the end of August I”YH.

In related news, AMG finally got her birthday present - a new bike:


Finally, we purchased a roll of extra-large screening, as you can see here:


(No, the number on the yellow sticker is neither the price nor the size. Apparently, it's the store's internal product number.... or something like that.)

What's the screening for, you ask? Well, you see, our porch is something of a bird-magnet, a phenomenon which we hope to discourage by putting up screens. (Watch this space for future updates on the screening process.)

And that's about it for now.

Readers who would like to see increased/renewed blogging are encouraged to leave suggested topics in the comments section.

Have a good night from the entire Our Shiputzim staff.


  1. your new furniture for the living room ( in the picture you posted) is very colorful, but it really only seats one person, so is not so efficient) and besides it looks very uncomfortable for falling asleep after a big meal

  2. Hi, "Anonymous".
    (What happened to "IMI" and all the other aliases? :-) )

    Anyway, thank you for your comment. I guess it's too bad that we didn't think of these things before we went shopping...
