Hi, y’all. I just finished up working eight days in a row. I now have eight days in a row off! Hip hip hooray!
Everyone is happy and healthy around here. Nothing really new happening. Work, sleep, eat, water stuff in the backyard and front yard. (Not grass, that shit’s on its own).
I’ll be heading north on Thursday to the lake to visit with my sister and her family for a few days.
Here are some pics from earlier in June. I went out to look at the koi pond and there was a wet turtle sitting beside it. I was honored that she had chosen to enjoy a dip in the pond because only an hour later she walked over a few yards into the grass and laid eggs! We have the spot marked so we can watch for baby turdies!
Before she left the edge of the pond, Orion had to check her out. He was very careful and even a bit scared of her. She must have been making a hissing noise that I couldn’t hear because every so often he would leap directly backwards to get away from her.

I bought the dogs a kiddie swimming pool for the summer this year. Reuben will stick his front feet in it and drink and then leave. None of the other dogs will go near it. However, I did catch the Stringbean playing in it the other day. He was in there long enough for me to see him, sneak into the house and grab the camera and come back out to get some pics! I’m glad someone is appreciating it this summer!
I am always trying to get the best picture to show how stringy the Stringbean really is. I have never seen such a long lean guy. This was the best I could do this time…I got the triangular face….and some of the longness. 🙂
It’s going to be over 100 degrees tomorrow. So, since I’ll be home I can put the sprinkler out in the chicken yard and let them have some fun with the water. I put huge feeding pans full of cold water out, too, and the chickens enjoy standing in it to cool their feets!
Ok, I’m off! Have a good night, all!
