There were four deer close to the back yard this afternoon. They blended in so well with the background I almost didn't see them.

Not much new...

It's been more than a week since I last reported in - not much going on here on the home front. Here's a pic of Clarise who thought the clean clothes were a good place to be.

Warm temperatures today. Then this afternoon a storm rolled through followed by a patch of sun and a rainbow -

More winds are predicted through the night - we will see.

"Service Dogs"

One of the blogs I frequently check is The "Blog" of "unnecessary" Quotation Marks which can be found at

I sent in this picture from the local post office -

Watch to see if and when it gets posted there.

To the Groundhog:

Will you, Won't you, See your shadow?
Will it, Won't it, Really matter?
Do you, Don't you, Grin to see
People take you seriously?

Heat wave!

The temperature reached 42.6F today. There was a lot of melting but the ground is still covered with snow. We had a problem with ice dams on the roof above the garage. I spent a lot of time getting ice out of the roof gutters. I think the problem is resolved - for now at least. Melting will continue tomorrow and that will help. Future ice and snow will make me wary of the gutters, though.
