    First? This late?
    Good morning, family

    Deadlines must be looming.

    Hi T&G.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, everyone. Especially to T&G and B. Cool here again with some spotty rain. Gosh, the weather can’t make up its mind.

    Good morning! It is a bad weather day here. We are expecting LOTS of rain and wind and flooding.
    Mom is home and making us all stay in in in. We are not happy about that.
    Mom is going to save Fern before Spence and Admin cut off her head.

    Speaking of bad weather, we woke up this morning to SNOW. This is crazy! 36 degrees when the day started, and 50 for a high. Should be 80+ by next Wednesday. Of course there is no global climate change!

    Chickens again, and minus their heads? Fern and Peaches will not like this, no they will not!

  6. Tupper and Gilly

    We must find a less jaded (and offensive to Peaches and Fern) saying for Spence when he is so busy.
    How about busy as a centipede trying on sneakers?
    Any other suggestions?

    B&M: This weatherkat is shaking his head in disbelief.
    Wondering what’s got Spence & Admin in such a frenzy?

    Wonder when SQ or Admin will be posting the schedule for book signings? I hope Houston makes the cut again.

    Howlers, Did you plant your tomatoes and peppers last weekend? Barb is picking up our plants on Sunday, but will probably wait till the following weekend to put them in.

    Everything looks OK in our flower pots except the two sweet potato vines. They may need to be replaced. Bad snow, bad.

  10. O'Howlers
    11:56 am on May 16th, 2014

    Maggie, We cannot believe you are getting snow!!!! Wow.
    We did plant our tomatoes and peppers and everything else last weekend. The weather here is not cold. But we are getting a bad storm today. We are already so wet. There is no place for this new torrential rain to go. Yes, Climate Change.

    T&G: “Busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest” is how we say it around here.

    Rio, Re-posting once a week is a great idea.

    1:34 pm on May 16th, 2014

    Ditto to what the Howlers said.

    Chickens may be in more danger from Spence than us Sibers.

    HOH: I hope your mom is taking it easy today. Just reading her schedule yesterday tired me out.

    80% of the deck is ready for a coat of primer which I will apply later this afternoon. Tomorrow afternoon I hope to apply the top coat but am checking the weather forecast as there is a chance of rain Sunday and Wednesday (the deck needs to be dry for 48 hours before and after painting). It might be a long week of trying to find a window to paint.

    I love the smell of basil. I just planted some…but will leave it indoors for now.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    2:55 pm on May 16th, 2014

    Bee, We have cilantro and basil that have sprouted in our herb garden pot. They are OK but basil likes warmer weather.

  29. B.Stover
    3:09 pm on May 16th, 2014

    Barb: I know that’s why I’m keeping the pot inside for now. It’s been going down to the 30’s at night.

    CHobbit, you are 10 times as active as mom, what with prepping and painting things and always on the go go go. She is just hoping to get back to active this summer…like maybe time out on the Daddy Dawg’s boat or even canoeing!

    5:11 pm on May 16th, 2014

    Howlers – hahahahahahahaha! Callie does stuff like that to strangers who come to the house. She walks up to the men, and wham! Jams her head in for a ear scritch. Don’t tell us she doesn’t know what she is doing.
