the day Sally dreams of all winter

The day the pond is free of ice, and Mom beckons, when she comes home from work, with the magic word: POND! It's enough to send Sally into a frenzy.

I also had to supervise some lawn tractor driving. Starflower and Calvin are getting pretty good at it. I have promised Mr. Attitude that I will give him lessons. When I'm ready.

Lucky Sally!

(Come mow my road for me.)

I think Sally is actually grinning!

Love the new Deere!

She looks so happy! Bear smiles just like that!

Ahhhh-h, another season of having the dog drench you when she shakes off, and that wet-dog smell wafting through the house.

Gotta be some cold water at first leap, too…which makes me glad it was Sally taking the plunge. I'd be excited, but not in happy grinning sort of way.

Ooh, major lawn tractor envy here!

Pablo- A Spring Break road trip to the Ozarks sounds nice.

Jayne- She was definitely grinning from ear to ear.

FC-'s a Lab thing!

Grizzled- I wondered at how she so freely took the plunge. All that fur must act like a wetsuit. I'll wait until an 80 degree day or more.

RuthieJ- Yep, this is the trouble credit can get you in! But, we can afford it, and we needed it.
