Monday, July 31, 2017

Good morning! ☀️How do "they" know? Our Scotties are not permitted, nor do they ask, to jump on our bed except on "sheets day." Well, they both jumped onto our bed at 6:30 this morning ... and it is laundry day. 

The dirty deeds, er duds are clean and put away. Yay. Kyle was hoping Mark would go fishing 🎣 in the Crestliner this afternoon but ... 

we have weather moving in from the northwest; and it's pretty hot today. 

Today's happy hour was at 3:30, an hour ahead of the storm. As you can see, we had plenty of laughs.

Gavin, Kyle, Wayne, Sue and me. It was pretty hot ahead of the storm. (Gavin must've been bopping around in his chair!) After happy hour, the boys popped into Chippy's to see the "additions" and visited. 

While Mark was walking Robbie and Belize on the road, they encountered a Labrador retriever, evidently on the loose. The dog circled them with its hair bristled up on its back. Fortunately, no one nipped and Mark was able to get the Scotties back into our cottage without incident. Sue came down with a leash and took the dog up to their garage where she checked the dog's tag and notified the out-of-state owner. Visiting folks arrived to pick up the dog a short while later, unaware that there are wolves in the area!!! Duh! 

Wayne cooked hamburgers on the barbecue while Sue put french fries in the oven. Mark had prepared mushrooms with onions and vermouth; a wonderful adult addition to the hamburgers. It was a delicious feast ... enjoyed inside as it was still too hot on the porch! The thunderstorm knocked out power for almost 1 hour so we played Mexican dominoes in the dark til nearly 10 o'clock ... with many sing-song antics. 😜🎶

Kyle had a giggle as younger brother Gavin began a funny schitck of 'puttin' on the ritz' with a plant hanger as his dance cane. Hilarious. 

We had great fun and silliness til Mark and I were sent home at 10. 🎶🤣

Tomorrow morning, the boys are going fishing about 9 o'clock.
