So yesterday was another hot and sunny day….lots of holiday activities going on around our neighborhood. There was a big soccer game over at the elementary school, there were cookouts all over the place (ahhhh the smell of charcoal wafting through the air), and the little neighbor boys next door enjoyed their kiddie pool by having a contest to see who could splash the most water OUT of it when they jumped into it!
I’m not sure how many of you have seen this photo I posted on my blog last year of my Cousin Toby (who lives in West Virginia with my Aunt Carol) in his back yard pool. Toby loves the pool AND the water hose equally well:
I think he thinks it’s a great big water dish.
A small herd of deer came out of the woods this afternoon and ate some stuff from Mom’s garden – or – as she calls it – the “All You Can Eat Salad Bar”………
So it really was an eventful day………..I didn’t do much except go out on the front porch with Mom a couple of times until I got too hot…..and watched her put some more Memorial Day patriotic decorations up – a big red/white & blue bow on our porch railing where the shiny banner is AND a red/white & blue windsock hanging from a tree branch in the front yard. Turned out the deer who were munching in the backyard walked around to the FRONT yard after they ate and stopped in their tracks when they saw the windsock blowing around with its’ long streamers! They had no idea what it was……their eyesight isn’t all that great……they stared for a minute then turned around and ran back into the backyard and disappeared in the woods! Silly deer!
I told Mom she should hang some windsocks around her gardens so maybe the deer would go to someone else’s “All You Can Eat Salad Bar” for their meals from now on……..I’m so full of GREAT ideas aren’t I ?Happy Monday Peeps!Sammy
