Busy Times

 Cullman, Al

These last few weeks have been busy ones.   Mostly due to hosting Boondockers.   Our 31st rig pulled out yesterday.   Quite possibly we are through with a rush for the next two weeks.   We have folks arriving on May 1 and another on May 3.    Nothing in between now and then.   But we know that could all change.

Lately our sites have looked something like this:

Biscuit is loving it.   Especially when other dogs are involved.  Well most of the time.  The nice folks who pulled out yesterday had two small dogs.   One really did not like Biscuit so they were separated.  Quite a different story with one that was here a few days ago.   A four month HUGE Golden Retriever.  

Murphy is a very active pup.   Biscuit would play only until he had enough of the pouncing and running.  Then he would take to the porch to get away.

Last Sunday son Lennie and DIL Lois stopped over for lunch.  Joining us was Murphy's parents.

We had invited Lennie and Lois to come over after they got out of church.   They were already here before we got back from church.   What a surprise when we pulled in and found our guest Mark was out at the pond raking in some string algae that was starting to spread.  So much appreciated.  Our simple lunch was small payment for all Mark did.

Speaking of help.   Our guests that left yesterday also helped.   I had bags of mulch to spread.  They saw the bags laying there so came up to ask if they could help me spread it.   Sure enough.  

Last week our friends Darlene and Jim who we met a few years ago while in Pennsylvania dropped by while on their trip from Florida back to Pennsylvania.    We put Jim to work.   He changed two overhead light bulbs in the master bathroom that had blown out.   Len can't lift his arms and I get dizzy doing overhead work.   Then he carried a chair to the basement that we had replaced with a new one.  He also replaced a strip of door trim that Biscuit had damaged when left alone in the house the first time.  Then he and Len placed some trim around the microwave cubby.

 When they are here we like to go to Jim n Nicks barbecue.   So once again we made time for that.  Both couples ordered a rib platter and a fried catfish platter.  Both couples had enough left for their next days dinner.   Jim and Darlene, pre getting served the meal.

We have noticed that our Muscovy Elsie is only around about an hour a day.   That leads to us believe that she is brooding.     We have seen her fly across the road to the neighbors pond.   Yesterday I texted Ashley.  Sure enough she is sitting on her eggs over there.    Then yesterday I saw this.   This is Frances that Elise hatched last July.    She is sitting on eggs at a corner of the house and the front porch.  Oh my, ducklings on their way.

Until next time
