Well I guess it's here at last but why so cool then hot then cool? The temperatures seem to fluxuate something fierce. From the 40's to the 90's and that's quite a jump. You don't know wether to wear shorts and tshirt or sweat pants and sweater. Real windy yesterday and almost 90 but today it's only 70 with the wind still blowing, Go Figure. Well whatever go out and enjoy it.

Well it quit raining long enough to get all the grass mowed. The bad thing was the mowed kept shutting down. When it set for a while it would start and run fine. About 1/2 hour later it would quit again and not start until it had set for a while. The mechanic at John Deere said not to use gas-o0hol in the mower because it runs to hot. So after draining the rest of the gas out he put straight unleaded and it ran just fine all through the south lot mowing.


I really like dinosaurs. How about you? These are in the dinosaur park in South Dakota. My nephews went there on vacation. It is there favorite place - the Black Hills of South Dakota. They also went to Mt. Rushmore and saw a great deal of beautiful country. They are planning on going again next year. They really love it there. I remember seeing this dinosaur many years ago on a trip there.

What A Spring

The grass needs to be mowed but it's raining outside. You know you can't mow wet grass so you wait. The sun comes out and dries things up for a day, that's good. Then before you can get the mower out it starts to rain. So what happens, you mow then it rains. It rains then in time you mow. You have to be very careful not to mix up the schedule or you'll be mowing in the rain. Iowa springtime don't you just love it?

Getting A Little Older

You know how it goes when you want something. Well, as I got older I couldn't wait for retiement to sit back and hunt and fish. I just happen to live in Clear Lake , Iowa where the walleyes are great and the yellow bass taste so good you could eat them every day and twice on Sunday. Guess what? I retired and had knee surgery and several other things go bad and I'm so unsteady I can't maneuver the bank to get down to the lake so there goes fishing. The fields I used to walk for hours pheasant hunting I lose my balance and fall a lot so there goes hunting. So my retirement is sitting at the computer trying to enjoy my email friends and hope my friends bring me some of those fish I dream about.

Old Family Pictures

It is fun to look back through old family pictures. Here you see my oldest sister and my Mom with one of the many dogs we had in our childhood. Mom has been gone for quite a few years now but we still miss her. We had a wonderful time growing up. When we came home from school, she always had a big bowl in the middle of the table with something warm she had baked. Often there were big warm sugared donuts in that bowl and our friends enjoyed them with us.

South Dakota

two of my nephews just came back from vacation in South Dakota. They went out to bear country and saw many bears. There were many bear cubs to see also. They are really cute when they are small but they are nothing to play with. They went out to see Mt. Rushmore and did this last year too. It is one of their favorite places to take a vacation. I would like to go myself. It has been years since I was there.

Black Hills of South Dakota

My 2 nephews went to South Dakota this week. They spent two days in the Mt. Rushmore area. This is one of the beautiful pictures they took. If you look in the background, you can see Mt. Rushmore. They had a very good time going to Bear Country and seeing all the cubs. They saw so many things and had such a good time, they want to go back again as soon as they can.


The neighbors son is graduating this weekend. His grandmother is having a big brunch on Sunday and invited me it it. I don't really know the boy but his folks are good people and grandparents are really nice people. It will be a huge brunch so I'll have to remember not to eat anything at home. She always makes sure I get plenty to eat when they do these lunches.

What Weather We're Having

Wednesday we set an all time high at 94 degrees then Thursday it was in the 70's. Today it barely made it to 60 and we've had rain the last 2 nights. I did some mowing yesterday and got a sunburn and today I wore a sweatshirt all day because I was cold. They say back to the 70's by Monday so I'll wait and see.

My Sister's Pet

This is my sister's dog. She is a little Boston Terrier. She weighs about 21 lbs. She is trying out a new dog food. She loves it. My sister has been trying to help her gain weight and she has gained 2 pounds so she is making headway with her. I have cats myself. They don't need to be watched over as much if you have to be gone for a longer time. I have always had cats and an occasional dog too.

It's Finally Dry

The grass has dried out enough to get it mowed. I went out yesterday and mowed the storage lot and it really looks good. Today they're talking more rain tonight and tomorrow and again Sunday and Monday so mowing will have to wait. Now that it's been cut it will grow faster and I'll be mowing every week or so and earn a few dollars. It's not a lot but it does buy milk and bread and maybe eggs too. It is so nice to look out the window and see everything green and pretty instead of being buried under a foot of snow. Soon we'll be eating fresh fish caught in the lake a half block away from my house. Summer is here at last.
