started about 7:15. My granddad always said, "Rain before 7, quit before 11." So, I guess this will continue for a while. Shoulda mowed yesterday, oh well. Grass is just about done, and, with the 'fall grass' or, crab grass, it looks like crap anyhow.
Going to visit Margaret and her daughter, Helen, tomorrow. Sweet people, of course I have to take Archie. They love him. It's always a nice visit, plus, I need to stop at the cemetery and try and find a particular stone. I know it's there, seen it at least twice. I just must be going to the wrong section, 'cause the last three times, I have yet to find the sucker. Need to snap a picture for the family tree. Aunt Ellie had 18 children (I'd told old George to tie a knot in it) and some are buried in this plot. That's why I need the picture. It's a way of confirming dates and the spelling of the name.
Got the toilet unclogged yesterday, but, it still flushes slow, so, I guess I'll need to get the tank pumped. Just another expense I didn't budget for until next March. Need to call my chimney sweep and schedule the cleaning. If I didn't have to pay the #$%^&*() fall taxes, I'd be sitting pretty.
My friend Cindy just went past. She hauls Amish and must've had a run this morning. They keep her hopping, for sure. But, it's a good income for her. I've never gotten involved with my Amish neighbors. I guess because I worked all the time, I was never home during the day. I did take my neighbor, Naomi, down to her friends house, about a mile and a half away, one day. She was on her scooter and by the time she got to my house, it was starting to rain, so, she stopped and asked me to take her. It was no problem, I did give her my cell phone number if she ever needed a lift. But, she's never called. I think they use Cindy, which is OK with me. Could be a pain in the a$$.
Gotta get a shower and get to dad's,
If you get too much rain, feel free to send us some cause we sure do need it.
DD....wish I could. I was over at dad's today, helped him grease his new toy, we both think it's gonna be an early fall, or none at all. Just go right into winter. Crazy weather.
