Memorial Day Post

Happy Memorial Day! The day dawned wonderfully and I got up and let out Bean, the loaner dog. As we went out for the morning bathroom break I noticed it was raining, no problem I figured, it's pretty warm and light, I can still get the work done. Next I see flashes of lightening and rolling thunder which became streaks of lightening and crackling thunder and finally Bolts of Lightening and Crashing Thunder, and then the power went out. Hmm, guess I was stuck inside after all. I did what I always do when I have my plans hit the skids, I went back to bed and took a nap. When I woke up it was clearing and so I went out and finished it up, by noon all of us were out and putting the finishing touches on the yard and it looks great! Here's the front bed, we bought these last year thinking they were annuals and they never looked this good.

Here's the typical from Bean, she's at the end of the lead pulling as hard as possible. Then, just before I snap the leash to get her come back, she goes to the bathroom. Crazy dog! She's stretching out my arm.

After all of our hard work I went on a ride with a buddy. It was touch and go, but we figured we could buzz northwest and then scoot back without getting wet. We got to the Croton/Hardy Dam area and it started looking really bad, by the time we go to Morley it was pouring. We pulled off for a few minutes but realized that it wasn't going to let up anytime soon, so we headed for home, in the pouring rain. Not a good ride, but hey, the leathers needed the bugs washed off anyway.

Have a great day!
