TOO Much Rain ~ Funny Dog ~ Funny Seal ~ Deer Turkeys & Geese

Good 46º POURING rain morning. 1/4" an hour. WINDY. Rain all over windows. T-storms possible. Electricity flashed off and then back on. Crazy.

OK, here's my first attempt at 'stacking' photos.... Need more practice, obviously, but here is the rain gauge left to right...
7am 3-30, 3pm 3-30, and 7am 3-31

.... and it was still pretty dark and the elk were up in the pasture at the top of the hill...

Now I know most everyone loves dogs. This golden is watching Marmaduke on TV. OMG. Just tooooooooooooo cute!

And... this is a neat story...

Some time ago Panchita was caught up in a net, which left deep cuts all over her body. She managed to make it to this hotel where animal advocates nursed her back to health for 3 months. Every day she returns to rest after being out to sea. She is now pregnant and expecting within a month.

Yesterday, other than the rain pouring down all day I was watching some of the critters. 4 deer were munching grass in the upper pasture. One of the fawns has this fur missing all over his side... :o(

This made me laugh.... turkeys playing chase around a bush...

They would have kept up the game but they saw me and stopped.

The geese were close by, standing out in the front yard ...

While their child from last year played in the creek...

And the creek overflowed it banks, blocking off the foot path to the barn....

Load the Ark! ~ Mrs. Brown ~ Chicken Salad ~ Doctor's Day

Good 48º (heat wave) POURING RAIN morning. Over a quarter inch in the last hour (.30), over an inch (1.10) since yesterday afternoon. I'm getting the Ark ready! I've got streams and creeks EVERYWHERE!


And I don't have to fill the birdbath!

This from Steve Geon (Wilson W'64) ... a Russian flash mob. Fun!

The use of the 'F' word is in this video, but it's so danged funny..... Mrs. Brown's dog is getting old and the kids are trying to figure out a way to tell her it's time for the pooch to be put down.....
Thanks to Mike Cipolla for this!
BTW, Mrs. Brown is a guy!


Yesterday Maggie and I whizzed to town early and got errands done and then home just as the sprinkles started. They were on and off all day and we got about 1/8" during the day... in the late afternoon it started in earnest. Glad I have no plans or appointments through the weekend.

Dinner was good... I put some cut up chicken breast in buttermilk to soak for a few hours, then drained it, coated with Panko, and fried in olive oil. I made a salad with ice berg lettuce, baby spinach, tomatoes, and celery... topped it with the chicken, some Parmesan cheese, and added Bob's Blue Cheese salad dressing. (We can get it now at Harry and David's. Yeah!)
