The Green Hat

I totally forgot to move Skunk Skull from my window ledge before the cleaning ladies arrived today. No one, most especially the two Hispanic Wonderwomen who clean our house every two weeks, should have to deal with an animal skull on a window ledge.

But our two ladies magnificently rose to the challenge.  Before I tell you what they did, I must add in another "treasure" I brought home from a walk on the neighbor's trails: a green badminton shuttlecock.  It was just lying there by the side of the path and at first I just glanced at it and walked on by.  But I couldn't resist -- I had to gather this thing in and take it home.  It's got problems.  The nose part is broken off and it's missing parts of the feathered plastic that allows it to sail through the air.  Still, I brought it home and put it up on the window ledge along with the rest of the menagerie.

This is what I came home to this evening:

Skunk Skull now has a little green hat.  I love our ladies!
