~ Mr Hippo ~ Mr Dave ~ Mr Squirrel ~ PB&J Mmmmmm ~

Good 39ยบ rainy morning.
Yesterday was beautiful and sunny and WARM all day. Last night I let Maggie out about 11pm and it was like a summer evening, still warm and balmy. Then about 12:30 I heard the rain start. Again.
So far looks like we've gotten about 1/4" and it's still coming down.
Of course we have our JCRW 1+1 Luncheon today,
and it will be rainy!
Yesterday was very productive. Dave and PJ stopped by before they went to town and he got my riding lawnmower working. It had just sat all winter and there was no gas in the lines, so he primed the carb and it started! Yeah! I got the lawn mowed. Boy, a chore, it was so deep. You know all that rain and then a couple of sunny warm days and it just exploded!! At least Mr. Hippo is visible again...
Dave PJ and I took a ride to the pond where Dave discovered a muskrat or some water critter had built a dam at the runoff creek and the pond was filling up way too much. He disengaged the dam and the water in the pond started receding. Then we went to the barn and located the sprayer. Jerry pulled it behind the lawnmower and sprayed the weeds and grass in the road and the fence lines. Dave is going to take it to his house and make sure it's working and spray his roadway etc and then I can spray mine. That will save me $400 paying someone else to do it! Then Saint Dave also stacked wood on my porch for me. Now my back isn't hurting, but his is! xo
I cleaned out my car and set up the rear seats... #5 and 6, so in case we have all five going to the luncheon today we can go in one car.
I have this gray squirrel that seems miffed that the turkeys eat up all the cracked corn and he doesn't get any. So, i took an old empty metal can and put corn in the bottom and left the lid off. Happy happy squirrel now! He gets down in there and eats to his heart's content. The turkeys can't reach the bottom of the can.
Looks like Spring in my bathroom...
