..... You see, Sally has suffered another little mar to her perfection. Earlier this month one of those gaudy, orange, state-owned trucks *lightly* rear-ended the poor girl. Consequently she is in the 'make me beautiful again'
I'm putting off explaining the house rules to her. While there may be factors in her favor - she is older than Sally, she is the newest family member, etc. - Sally's master and I long ago agreed that the youngest girl would be the one who got to be inside all the time. Saoirse is 13; Sally is only 11. I'm not looking forward to refereeing this fight!
On a lighter note: while we don't have the dratted "the squirrels are in the attic again" problem, we do have a similar "the starlings are in the eaves again" hassle. Yesterday I heard them begin building their nest in there.
