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....

Historically this date....
1918 – Daylight saving time goes into effect in the United States for the first time.

1943Christopher Walken, American actor

1945 – Gabe Kaplan, American actor and comedian

.............. the "Nobel" part makes me throw up in my mouth!

Lunch was soup! The shrimp soup I made the other day..

Dinner was broccoli and carrots and hummus and a couple cookies.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

How's the ark building going? I'm really enjoying the links you posted this morning. Taters...YES! Clams, a favorite of mine...steamed open with broth/butter for dipping...yum, yum. Of course fresh OJ, navels and fresh lemon on many dishes..homemade lemon meringue pie comes to mind, you certainly know how to trigger the drool button. :) Loved the wildlife shots. When I think of Shirley Jones and her pairing with Gordon McRae for Oklahoma! and Carousel....some of the most enjoyable of the Rogers & Hammerstein Musicals ever. Looks like you need a rain break. XO E.

Yes, a rain break, only because Maggie goes out often to pee and comes back in soaking wet and stinky! I dry her off and then wipe a dryer sheet over her hair so she smells somewhat better. You know about 'wet dogs'!!

Loved R&H musicals! Know all the words to all the songs!
There is a restaurant in Depot Bay called the Sea Hag and talk about a BUCKET of steamed clams!!! Oh my. HUGE and soooooooooooo good! Jerry and I fell in love with that place. Now my good friends, Joe and JoAnn are moving there this month! YEAH... a good excuse for the rest of us to visit!

Steamed Clams In The Shell


A Sea Hag Signature. A 2 pound bucket of tender morsels of Northwest Butterclams swimming in their natural nectar. With drawn butter.

Hi Sue: Looks like you will be living in Waterworld soon.
Has it ever rained this much since you've been there?
I cracked up at your turkeys and elk. What a great
animal preserve. Keep dry, Cyndi

Oregon Sue said...

Yes, we've had rain like this before and it washed out part of my road. Always something. I don't mind the rain, it's the stinky dog that has to go out and pee all the time. I wipe her off and then use a dryer sheet to combat 'wet dog smell'. LOL

You are lucky that Maggie will GO out when it's raining! Lola refuses to budge off the porch in the rain. I finally give up and tell Daryl to see to it!!
Your animal preserve is a hoot! Love it! It's so good that you have a fine camera to capture them in photos!
Say, why don't you post that video of the dog and the pic and story of the seal on PWL. You know they would love it.

mmmmmmYour soup looks so yummy! Last two night I have been gone at dinner time. John had to make himself a concoction last night with some leftover pasta, BBQ sauce and meat loaf! LOL It's good practice for him!!

The only clams I have ever had have been in clam chowder. Never had them on the half shell.

Hugs and try to stay dry!!
