3 June, 2010 -- Walkin' the kitty



Stinker and I walk around the pond in the evening after supper.
I walk, he runs, romps, hides in the grass... stops to ponder a splash...
hmmm, I wonder if it's bigger'n me...



Surely is a lot more peaceful than last night!

2 June, 2010 -- Lightning tonight


Thunderstorms to the west and north, approaching Mtn. Grove.
Took a couple of hours to get here. We took a couple of close
hits, but it just rumbled on by, dumped a little small hail and a bucket
or two of rainwater.



Randy and Lloyd put the finishing touches on their new engine,
then ran it up to check it out.

31 May, 2010 -- May or may not


Bill and Laurie started back to Michigan, turned around and came
back to MG. They may or may not go back in the Lance for awhile.
Troubleshooting the oil pressure problem, Randy runs up
the engine while Lloyd and Bill ponder.

Classic thunderhead off to the east changed colors as the sun set.



The thunderhead faded into the darkness,
and May faded away with it.

30 May, 2010 -- Grant's family vacation, 1 and 2


It's Sunday night, Comfort Inn in Twin Falls, ID.
We have seen so much, well, the ones with their heads up looking around have, anyway.
Yesterday we went thru most of Nebraska, pretty, and stayed in Kimball, NE.

Today, we crossed over into Wyoming and took a scenic route that cost us about 2 extra hours on the day, but it was worth it. The pass had JUST opened, they had just plowed away the snow from the route.
The rest of Wyoming was scrub brush and some mountains in the distance and rolling hills, but mostly flat. We took I80.
Utah was pretty, mountains, Salt Lake from a distance, finally found a spoon (collectible). Idaho stinks... literally.
Idaho, Oregon and Washington tomorrow. We're staying in Sequim, WA.

Ralph, Samantha and Cameron in the outdoor photos.
In the interior photos, everyone has a weird traveling syndrome: Grant with alien-eye, Dev with paws-book, Cam with Spock-ears, Samantha with ring-arm, Ralph with PB-thumb (I hope that's peanut butter!).

29 May, 3010 -- It's work


Randy made a spray run in the Ag Husky yesterday morning,
and I made a flight to take some aerial photos.
It's more work than you think. Washing the airplane after being
hangared for two months, covered with pollen and kitty tracks.
It's work. Especially underneath!


Tomato leaves have a curious yellowing pattern, I've never
seen them do this.
