Patty, I think I would slowly back away from both of those houses, keeping your eye on them until you're in the vehicle with the doors locked. And check the backseat for any murderous stowaways.

It seems my house guest and my ex both have fairly impaired senses of smell. Neither of them finds the burned rubber acrid spots around the house to be a problem. Here I was thinking the only thing that could fix it is to burn the house down.

Last night I sprayed skunk odor remover on the floors, then when I couldn't sleep at about 3am and realized the dog had been coughing and snorting skunk stink out of her mouth as she moved through the house I needed to aim the enzyme spray at everything from about three feet down that she would have broadcast to. So I got up and walked through the house and did another spray. It did help, but we're a long way from good and I don't know if the skunk is out of the garage yet. I had the ex come over to pick up the friend, but she still wants to stay here until Thursday so they're out for the day while I get more supplies and a new mop (the old one died and no more "automatic" replacements heads for the self-wringing mop are available).

A plus for today is we set up a Zenni account for my friend and got her measurements and prescription entered with a pair of glasses she likes. She's comparing one place today in town then will decide to get those or order online. A pair of high-end progressive lenses in a light titanium frame for $175 - the in-person place would have to work really hard to beat that! (By the way, did you know that on your glasses Rx the OD is "Oculus dexter" for the right eye and "Oculus sinister" for the left? I get the left/sinister part. Dexter is apparently latin for "right." And here I thought it was just a good name for a dog.) :-/
