It is too windy for Mei-Shun to go out today, to hang and dry futon outdoors either. Actually, she lost 2 futon pinchers the other day when similar weather locked her up indoors. Heavier mats looked enough to stay, yet one for the wife was blown down onto the ground in a second. Oh, a young apple tree mom-in-law planted last year was safe. So were you of course, Mademoiselle Vert.
