    Whoohoo the POWER is ON!

    The kids and I got home from town last night at dusk to no lights (of course). I got the generator (there's been a rash of thefts lately) out of the garage, the fuel out of the car, looked up and the lights came on. I started jumping up and down, screaming and yelling, doing cheers for the...

    Dang dog!!

    OK, so yesterday a basset hound shows up. I encouraged my dogs to do their jobs and chase it off, which they do...until it keeps coming back and they give up. It is very sweet, jumps all over me when I go outside to check, so OK, it can stay until it's nose takes it adventuring again. Mia...
