Eww . . . What Is That SMELL???!!! August 24, 2021

After a dip in the cool pool for water aerobics this morning, we biked back home, parked our bikes in the garage, and started to walk through the courtyard to the front door.

And that’s when we got a *whiff* of something.

Something foul.

Or perhaps fowl.

But definitely deceased, demised, a done deal.

We lifted leaves and peered through branches.

And noted nothing.

We combed the courtyard from top to bottom without finding any rotting carcasses.

Nevertheless, our olfactory senses, still objecting to the odor, encouraged us to continue looking.

High.  Low.  Up. Down.

Nothing.  Nada.  Zilch.

No source of the substandard stench could be found . . . until BFF (who is taller than me by a good 12 inches) looked up on the roof of the garage and spied . . .

A dead fish sizzling in the stalwart summer sun.

Given its last landing pad, it must have been a flying fish.

BFF hauled out the ladder and headed up to the roof armed with AJAX, rubber gloves, trash bags, and twist ties.

Once the deceased fish had been dealt with, disposed of, and dispatched, BFF hosed off the roof and returned to the cool comfort of the A/C.

Aah . . . that’s better!
