Yesterday, while Mom was washing the windows and the screen for the Living Room and the Dining Room the Swallows left the corn field – flinging themselves off the top of the corn tassels and into to the air to land on the electric lines way above our heads.
They gathered in huge bunches.
Mom hurried in to get her camera.
But well ….. I barked and barked at them — and they flew away.
I was sad.
So was Mom.
Mom said she wasn’t mad at me, she was just sad because when the Swallows leave the Hummingbirds will be next. After they leave it will start to freeze and the snows will come with huge winds that rip your face off your head.
She gave Boomie and me a huge hug and went back to washing screens.
We’ve been working with Dad in the New Hay field for several days now. The hay just wasn’t drying down.
This is Dad checking the hay to see if it is dry enough to bale.
Yellow Strips where the hay laid until it was dry enough.
last night we got the last of the hay bales
got all but two loads hauled in.
Altogether he has ten loads!!! COOL!
He is hauling the last as I write this!
One of the raccoon’s ran through the yard last night….
Boomie took off after him, so today Boom says his knee is hurting rather more than usual.
Well, the day is warming up nicely and I see a really nice hole that has my name on it. Boomer is resting his leg, but I think I’ll rest my eyes!
Talk to you tomorrow,
