and things are the same at Dad's. Cousin John and his son-in-law came down last week and built a ramp up to dad's deck. Took 2 days, then they came back this past Tuesday and trimmed the rest of his bushes. Of course, they didn't do it to suit him, but it's done. Must be terribly sad to go thru life never being satisfied. But, that is another post, someday.
All critters are doing OK. The new kitten, Elliott ( I changed his name), is growing like a weed. He is about 6 months old now and as big as Mary Fiona at 4 years. But, she is a tiny little girl. They have become buddies. Elliott also plays with Charlie and washes Elijah's ears. But, Lucy wants nothing to do with this young upstart. The dogs just ignore him.
Had a nice little rain this morning. Cloudy and cool lately. It was a real cool summer with about a week of humidity. I like that kind of summer.
Found a complete snake skin hanging in the laundry room. Had to cut a couple of holes in the dry wall to try to figure out why the back light doesn't work. Walked out one morning and there it was. Needless to say, got a board in the wood shed and screw it up to the opening. Told my carpenter we need to get serious about finishing this before winter. He's so burned out with his factory job he doesn't have much get-up and go. Might have to find someone else.
