I walked with M. It was a really hot day, but we got out in the morning so it wasn't too bad yet.

A. had a good time in the afternoon hanging out in the sitter's pool. She ate at a different restaurant. While she didn't care for the bun this time on the cheeseburger (that's a new one for her), she was apparently happy to eat the patty by itself. Go figure; the hamburger steak returns, and not just for low-carbers.

R. and I went to Red Raven before he headed up to Pepperell to pick her up. We still haven't eliminated the ants, but their numbers are once again reduced. I trimmed some house plants and did a bunch of vacuuming. I think I've finally gotten most if not all of the sand out of the house. Until more gets tracked in. For people who live absolutely no where near a beach, we seem to wind up with a lot of sand in the house. Road treatment explains the winter sand. The summer sand is a little mysterious; maybe it is just leftovers from the winter. Some of it came from Nara.

I watched some more Marvel Agents of Shield; I think I just have one episode left.

Okay, I gotta say:

When I was a kid, I had a buddy who had an ant nest, the “two glass panes on wood” kind.  Being as he was, he decided to prepare for the possibility of boredom or unforeseen necessity, and - taking a page from The Andromeda Strain (1971) - he placed a cherry-bomb in the nest before filling it, as a “self-destruct mechanism.”

I think you can see where this is going:  Yes, he neglected to take the nest outside first.  BANG!!  Ants and sand and glass shrapnel of every size expanded outward in what the military calls “rapid unplanned disassembly.”

His parents were not amused.
