What a day… so much to do, so little time. But the warm weather… it makes the soul rejoice! The young one wanted to do some “log walking” again, so this time it was on with the shorts and tennis shoes in case he did fall in the water. He walked across the log two or three times and never came close to falling. He was so excited each time he did it. It may not look like much- but it’s about 3 feet deep on one side (up to his chest), and very cold water! The log is old and rotted… it came from the other end of the pond about 3 years ago. He would call it “the monster tree” because it was a dead snag standing up in the corner. Then it fell into the pond one day and floated here to the other side. And yes- he’s wearing his favorite Cardinal t-shirt… #5 Albert Pujols!
I kept busy planting and cutting… and when I needed a break I came to the house to lie on the warm grass in the sun. I wasn’t there five minutes when everyone saw me… they decided to have a dog-pile party on top of Dad… literally. Young one’s mother took the picture as he piled on too… I finally had to get back to work to get some rest! Soon after, Mom went to help out with the local sausage supper at the church; we joined her later in the day to have a good supper of hearty sausage and all the fixin’s.
