Spring at Scott’s House

Ahhh, the snow has melted, the temperatures are creeping up, we’ve had some rainstorms, I heard someone mowing their lawn already. Yes, spring is here.

You’ll never guess what I found near the side door of my house the other day. See if you can pick it out of this picture:

What? You can’t see it? C’mon now – you mean your eyes can’t pick these things out from a mile away? Here’s a close up:

Yes folks, that would be a Another Used Test Strip.

I really can’t explain how this got out here – but somehow, buried under the layers of snow & ice, mixed in among the twigs and dirt, magically avoiding the temptation to stick to the underside of one of the many shoes & boots that walk along this path, we have an authentic AUTS.

When I saw it the other day, after the confused looks of “how in the hell did that get out here”, I just knew it was blogworthy and went to retrieve the camera. This time I spared you all the pain & suffering of using my famous cell phone camera, which I must admit was my first reaction.

Is there anywhere that is safe from the invasion of AUTS? I don’t think so.

Have a happy Monday everyone!
