June 2

Saturday, still no rain, but cool and nice.  Today I am going to get the babies so Papa and Robert can watch the new season 6 Ice Road Truckers first show together tomorrow night.  He can take them back Monday morning when it is back to work for me.

View from my window this morning.

May 30

No rain, hot and dry.  I watered the tomatoes and melons today.  They say some should get rain tonight and tomorrow, but I am not holding my breath.

Tonight, George took me over to little brother's to deliver the wedding pictures and the images on a USB stick so she can have whatever prints she wants.  I had 2 prints made of each of the images I uploaded and put her prints in an album.  I told Gilbert he could take what he wanted of the extra prints and give the rest to Julie to distribute as she wanted.

Then he gave us hamburger and sausage from his freezer, so I guess I made money on the deal.

Big grandgirl went home this morning.  I think tomorrow I am going junking.  Tomorrow is the last day of vacation.  I don't have to go back to work till Monday, but I would have had the last three days [Friday, Saturday, Sunday] off anyway so they do not count as vacation.

Still no new baby goats.  They are not making bags yet, but I still think we will have babies in a couple of weeks.  We will see.

May 29

First day of vacation.  AND we got about a quarter inch of rain last night.

Gilbert called last night wanting to know about wedding pictures and Helen wanted to see more wedding pictures.  I had not done anything with the pictures, been busy, lazy and putting it off.

Now I uploaded picts to Wallyworld and ordered 2 sets of 4X6 prints, one for Julie and one for others to share.  I will go pick them up this evening.  This is  not nearly all the pics I took, but it is the ones I wanted to make prints for her to look at and see what she might want in larger prints.

Anyone can look at them here,

I think.  At least that is what their website said.

If it does not work for you, my phone # is BR549.  Give me a call.

May 28, Memorial day

Everyone has gone home except Emmy and her an Grandpa are down at the neighbor's pool with Sammy.  We had a good week end.  Tomorrow is the first day of my vacation.  I think  I will just do nothing.  Well, I guess, I need to water the garden first thing tomorrow.  It was a week ago today that I watered it last.  It all looks fine except for the melons.  They should be ok till in the morning.

No new baby goats.

Sunday, May 27

In Velvet.  This is one set of the two sets of twins born about a year ago.

If you click to enlarge, you can see the velvet horns on the one on the left.

I have a whole bunch of kids today.  The babies are here plus Emmy and her friend and Sammy the neighbor girl.  The big girls played in Sam's pool most of the last two days, so they have not been much trouble.  Then, the babies Daddy is here to take care of them.  Last night we had a bonfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.  I was too tired to take pictures but the kids had LOTS of fun.  Today, I think the big kids are going to the lake with Sam, and I may take the little ones back to Frank and Donna's pool.  Robert absolutly loves to play in the pool.  He is teaching himself to swim.  He is not afraid of the water at all.

Right now, everyone is still sound asleep so I am on my own.  Peace and quiet for a little while.
