It's June already. We have immensely enjoyed the number of birds who are bringing their young to our feeders. It's such fun watching the parents feeding the greedy little ones. And even more fun when the parents stop the feeding and the young ones must find their own way to the feeders. Often they make several awkward attempts before they are finally successful. Soon enough most of the birds will have another brood and we can watch the whole process again.
Lucy is enjoying our weather. It's cooler than normal with sunny mornings and rain most afternoons. We are fortunate to have several areas where she can run safely off leash. Like the rest of our household, Lucy refuses to acknowledge that she is getting old. She runs like a puppy but then relaxes the rest of the day.
We have a wide swath of grass between the road and the woods. Wide enough for a short jog.
Her face shows that she is not pleased with a recall.
We interrupt her fun periodically for no reason.
I'll do it but I don't like it.
We frequently hop in the car and take a short drive to a park or other grassy areas. One of our favorites is the top of an earthen dam on one of our lakes. Although she gets good exercise on trails, she really loves open areas where she can run full speed ahead.
Heading back to the car.
It has been quite an interesting week, hasn't it? It seems that we are supposed to overlook all the failings of our President. According to the Speaker of the House we should take into account that the President "is new at this" and does not understand the protocols of the relationship between the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the White House. Well, excuse me Mr. Ryan, most of us learned this relationship in grade school. It's part of that "separation of powers" thing.
Several quotes once again:
"Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting in a particular way."
"To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice."
"I think I am almost too honest to be a politician."
Donald J. Trump
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
