Good 44º rainy morning. Started about 4am. 9/100ths of an inch.
Be careful...full moon!
Looks like it will stay wet today.
You have to see this. Precious. Guilty!
This from my friend Ann in Hiouchi. (That's a fun name to say! Hiouchi, not Ann.):
Friends are like underwear...some crawl up your ass...some snap under pressure...some don't have the strength to hold you up...some get a little twisted...some are your favorite...some are cheap and just plain nasty...and some actually do cover your ass when you need them to.
The pest control guys showed up about 11am. They put an all natural power under the house where my bathroom is...ants have been coming in. Then they sprayed for termites in the barn. Checked for Mr. Mole. Didn't find him. Maybe he moved.
They left and Jason came up and went all around picking up wood and stuff for the burn pile. It's HUGE now. He'll come back after it has some hot sun on it for a few days (no guess when that will be!) and start the burn in the morning early. It will burn all day, no doubt.
Tucker had a baseball game 5:30 yeaterday, this time in Rogue River! Yeah. I got there, set up my chair, had umbrella close as it lightly sprinkled on and off... Then when Tucker came up to bat, hit the ball, ran to 1st base ... I got a great series of pictures. Then I discovered the card for the camera was still stuck in my computer! AAAARUGHHHH....... After an hour of cold winds and I was freezing, I came home. Had put artichokes in crockpot earlier so they were ready when I got back.
When I went out to take a picture of my mountain, the wood peckers were chatting up a storm..
Yesterday I took out the dead rose from the barrel and planted the mums Jean gave me for Mother's Day and the lupine my neighbor Cindy gave me.
Mr. Flying Pig whirls and twirls in the wind.
