    Good morning all.
    Pearl looks like she’s having a great time! Darah Thea is that way with water too and she doesn’t care what flavor the water is as long as it’s wet water.
    Everyone enjoy your weekend.

    Love seeing the pics of Pearl on the beach and Franklin in the pool.

    Also water related: Congratulations Mliauppa, on getting hot water back on. I can sympathize with your digging trenches. A couple days ago I had a skid steer hired to do some moving dirt around in the yard and he opened up a whole can of worms. Not to mention huge deep tire tracks. I got some digging and leveling out the ground in my future. Ugh. Will NOT be hiring this guy again!

    Way to go Pearl!

    From last night:

    Mlaiuppa: Franklin adores older women, so he would love to meet Diana pawPrints if the opportunity ever presented itself.

    Rio/Rio’s Friend: Sorry about the shortness of the video; I had tried posting longer videos but without luck. I actually had to edit that video down a bit, but I will try again with some others when I have a chance.

    For a part Golden Retriever, Diana pawPrints isn’t keen on swimming. She’s OK with water but like my first dog, Caesar, she likes to touch the bottom. I did get a flotation life vest for her for confidence but we haven’t really been to the beach since she tried it out. She didn’t swim with it, just waded a bit and then ran around on the beach. Caesar would swim and Ramses was quite the swimmer. Whenever I went to my sister’s house if you turned your back he was in the pool. Diana hates the pool.

    Dawson. Can’t offer any suggestions. Maybe hire the local football teem and buy a dozen rakes? Cost me about $8.70 per foot to have that trench dug. If you get down about 8-10 inches here you hit clay and digging is not fun. I tried to get Diana to help me dig but she couldn’t keep a straight line and then lost interest. She is very relieved that I am putting the dirt back.

    Tomorrow I want to start putting some bricks back in after a trip to Home Depot for sand. I need to at least get that part in and the corner cleared in case the refrigerator arrives on Tuesday. And of course, it would be the hottest week of the year (so far). 80s and up all week. Luckily I can work until about 8:30pm, but I imagine Dawson has a lot more working daylight late into the evening.

    Rio: I wanted to level out a hump in the front yard and to dig out an invasive patch of lily of the valley in the back yard. What I got was half the lilys gone (because a fence was hampering removal), big ruts running along the side of the house from front to back and the front yard not quite level. Grrr.
    The man-who-lives-in-this-house bought 6 tomato plants and is leaving them in the greenhouse all summer because we have had troubles with stem-rot the last few years, possibly because of very wet summers.
    I planted seeds for all manner of flowers and a few herbs, lettuce, carrots, and mustard greens. There will not be a vegetable garden this year because I am re-arranging the raised garden beds. So far I’ve hired two different strong men to help dig the dirt out of the raised beds, move the frames and put the dirt back in. Neither of them showed up when scheduled + then there were rain delays, and bad back ache delays, so therefore…I have one (of 3) emptied of dirt and managed to move it about a foot so now I just have to figure out where I really want it to stay forever and ever. Meanwhile trying to fill in blasted tire ruts. And finish planting the millions of seedlings I started. And, dog on it, I just got the front yard mostly cleared of weeds and suddenly they are a foot high in the back yard.

    Dawson!….Wow! And my friend thought she had garden troubles…wuffle!…She is feeling pretty good right now and has a definite plan in mind to make her life a lot easier in the future. She is going to Kill Everything in the north garden…gruffle!…Well almost everything. There are a few select species which will be dug up and transplanted before the dark landscape sheeting goes over top of everything else…wheeze!…She spent hours out there this morning cutting down everything – mostly weeds and dried out daffodil leaves…cough!sneeze!choke! …So tomorrow she will dig holes for the surviving plants and then dig them up and transplant…grunt!…The landscape cloth will probably not get put down tomorrow. But soon everything will die!Die!DIE!…yeeeep!
