OMG- she's at it again

I have found another box of "old" pictures
This is from one of the many canoe trips
on the Kankakee River in Illinois
Oh yes, I think I remember this . We might
have been at the "Golfish Bar"

Lake Ladonna camp ground.
The rule was
Where you fall down is
where you sleep.
We only broke the rule one time ..
that time involved Jesse

Am having a quiet morning . Everybody ( except the dogs)

is still sleeping. So i made coffee and headed for the computer.


I really should be cleaningthis computer room, it has

become a catch all for EVERYTHING.. Looks like a

tornado went thru here.

* * * * * * *

Yesterday we went to the farm- it was 61 degrees.

FINALLY a little warm weather, now if we could just get

some sunshine to go with it . I am in need of

a day of sun and a good book and just sit on the patio, ( and hope

the dogs don't start circling my chair like sharks

in a feeding frenzy). I know I have said it before, but I will say it

again, when these 3 are gone , I AM DONE. I am tired of mopping

the floor 2x a day during the wet seasons. I am tired of asking

people to puppy sit when we want to go somewhere. We sure

cannot afford to kennel all 3 of them.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

IF it is nice today ,we will take Jack out and let him

ride his bike around the neighborhood. The

exercise would be good for me too.

Another backyard visitor

Now for the rant
Damn neighbors dog is barking again.. this damned dog barks all
day long.. I don't blame the dog , I blame the owner.
Poor fur baby is left outside alone 24 /7
Why the hell do people get dogs if they just plan to ignore them??
Guess it is time to get dressed and got knock (kick)
on the door .

The sky is blue because it is daytime.
