Rain and rain and rain

Our backyard is a bog, almost a pond with the extreme rain we've been having. Too wet to mow so we're running around in a jungle.

Here is what was in the box! It was a bag of pumpkin treats and an award from Mango the Relentlessly Huge. My award for runner up in the alternate Westminster.

My mom apologizes--between health issues and equipment failure she hasn't been able to upload pictures.

This is where my mom went walking several weeks ago. It was a beautiful day by the river.
Then she visited where the Irish pub used to be. It's a Taco Mamcita's now. So sad. No pubs anymore to play in.
Can you see the nest? A mama bird built her nest under our porch roof. My mom tried to get a video of her feeding the babies but the mama bird stayed away when my mom was at the door. It's fun to listen to the babies screech. Sometimes we bark at them.

I hope everyone is having a good spring.

We have had a cool, wet spring too, but today was gorgeous! Sunshine all day(just setting now at 7:30), and comfy warm. We want more of this!

I am wishing the same for you to dry up your bog.

Hi River! Your back yard sure sounds wet! That place where your mom went walking is very pretty. How cool to have your very own baby birdies singing to you.

See ya!

Rain is good but only in limited amounts- just enough to keep our favorite wading pond full.

Hope it drys up for you.

We have been working in the gardens, so we don't get to visit much. We actually needed rain, so we were glad to get some yesterday. ~S,S,C & F

Rain, rain and more rain! My mom says she's starting to feel depressed because she misses the sun so much. I hope it dries up soon!

Sharkie can do whatever he wants to feel safe and sound. Heck, Boru suckles on J.E.B. and Jubal and they don't seem to get mad, although they don't like it. They don't like it if he starts "kneading bread" on them with his claws out cuz that hurts. But Sharkie isn't bother anyone suckling on a stuffie. In fact, that's better than killing the stuffing out of the stuffie.
