Dang Dog!

This dog HATES to be groomed.
 He hides under Boyd's chair and won't let me get at him.

 Dang dog!
 And, some cool shadows with Jess on the hillside.

Just Because

Just because the photos include my dad's old hat.
 Just because Boyd hates it when I post pictures of him on the blog.
 Just because it will be one more blog post for the month and I am already really behind.
 And, just because he is always so kind to the dogs.

Lucky Dogs

The poor dogs had been living under a ripped tent for quite some time.  Finding a tarp the same size as the current one proved to be difficult.  We decided to try a shorter tarp we had on hand because it was past time to deal with the issue.

 This is the view from below.  A very nice sky light, but not at all helpful
 The tarp reached in to the goat pen.  The goats use the bungee cords to scratch between their horns.  Very effective at ripping the tarp also.

 While we were at it, Boyd decided to reinforce the frame with a couple of additional 2x4s.  It is SOOOO much better.  I don't clothesline myself on sagging rope anymore!!!

 The new, shorter tarp.  Should be high enough the goats can't damage it.

June News

Every year a pair of robins decides that my rake is the perfect base for a nest.  ??? Every year I carefully move the nest and then spend a month getting dive-bombed every time I need a garden supply.  Finally, babies left the nest, but not until after I spooked them and they took awkward flight right at me. I hope they made it.
 Francine loves to drop and roll right in front of where you are walking.  Sure do enjoy our most recent stray who has chosen to stay.

 Jeff brought over a boat for Boyd to help him problem solve.  I don't even know the problem, but I do think they got it solved.

 Turkey poop, HUGE turkey poop.  Apparently, it is also delicious.  Just ask the dogs.
 Boyd loaded the tractor for me so that I could move some dirt to help my mom with her irrigating.  Took more time to load, drive there and unload the tractor than it did to move the dirt. BUT, I certainly wouldn't have wanted to move the dirt any other way.  Very efficient!
