You’ve heard of Dog Day Afternoons, right? Well, here is a look at a Dog Day Morning. Four out of seven of our Berners enjoying the cool morning air. (Note: That’s Alex [left upside down] and Bode [right upside down]).

Another Visit with Johnny

Johnny and I had another visit today. It went much better than the first time, and I think that’s because I am more comfortable now. What? You don’t know who Johnny is? Shame on you; you haven’t been reading my blog! You’ll be glad to know I only used third gear and it didn’t seem fast at all. Something sweet-smelling is blooming right now, and I kept catching whiffs of it here and there. Nice day today, but rain is moving in for later this evening and tomorrow. Boy, it’s quite a challenge to figure out the best way to mow around all those trees in the front yard. [Note to self: Before mowing next time, pick up ALL fallen branches in the yard FIRST.] Here is the side front yard, and the main front yard as seen from standing in our driveway looking away from the house.

ACK…Humidity!

Okay. Finally, today, the humidity has caught up with me. Ewww…sticky! Today we woke up to semi-cloudy skies. By the time I set off for the Wayne area to do some shopping and to meet up with Rick, it was kind of ominous looking. I went into BJ’s (like a Sam’s club) and five minutes later the sky literally opened up! The rain on the roof was astounding, plus thunder! It was typical of a high humidity day. Smudgy, yellowish sky with sporadic rain on and off. When we got home and sat on our deck, my first thought was that I needed to clean my contact lenses because there was a film on them. HELLO! I haven’t worn contacts since Lasik surgery five years ago! Yet, that is exactly what it looked like. It was hazy and almost foggy. Very weird. The dogs drink tons more water than they ever did in Colorado. They pant more. Ice in glasses melts quicker and the glasses bead up and drip with moisture. Coasters under glasses are very much a necessity rather than a convenience. I haven’t encountered this much humidity since I don’t know when. I think it was around 85% and the temperature was around 80 at its highest point today. The locals say “you ain’t seen nothing yet, wait till August.” At least we have the pool to cool off in then! And to all a sticky good-night!
