If served food from a can, it is unauspicious to eat all of it. Leave a good portion to dry out, as a preventative measure against poverty.
From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.
Mum is never so rude to feed me directly from the can. My food always goes into a bowl and certain treats and such get fed to me by her hand. So this is me, staring at her to give me a treat or six! Today's flower is the Russian sage plant. Top picture shows it just growing and now it is in full bloom. Mum just loves this stuff and what you see is actually three plants to give a huge bunch of mass in the garden, not just one plant.
It hasn't been that hot here, but the air is all sticky. Mum has tried to open the window overnight when it isn't hot. But then we get rains too, which mum says is good as the grass and garden needs it. This week we have had several rain storms which brought us 2 inches of rain. The grass is actually green again.
