Excitement Just on the Block

We just got back from a walk, the crazies and I. We saw a smashed up snake (it was very fresh), two swans in our lake, a cicada that nearly sent my son over the edge, and then right when I thought the excitement was all over, Eraser Eater yelps at the top of his lungs from the other side of the street, "Holy cow! That's about the biggest piece of poop I have ever seen in my life!!!"

And who goes running nearly in front of an oncoming car just to see this phenomenon? The Girl. And what does she say? "Holy cow," in hushed tones.

And what does my Oldest say? "That is too big for a dog. It must be from a horse. But people don't ride horses around here..."

They have complete interest but very little to say about the smashed up snake, but a ton to say about the gigantic piece of excrement. I do admit it was quite large, though. Had to be from a horse...

Wow! Guess what? I put Green Cathedral and Blog in the search engine and you came up the very first on the list!! You are FAMOUS. I had to do this because RT lost all of my bookmarks when he changed our computer. I am just so glad to have found you.

From now on, could you please post a warning (esp for me) so that I am not eating when I read posts about excrement etc. It seems to change the taste of my chocolate. LOL
