Good morning. Tis a bit cloudy outside at the moment, but this is New England and it could change at any time. We had a bit of rain yesterday, and I think we're supposed to be getting more today.
Speaking of rain, unless there is lightning the ball game is still played. Yesterday afternoon, Pogo and I went to Kevin's baseball game which was being played in the rain. I parked my car as close as I could to the playing field, and Pogo and I watched the game from inside the car.
We (Dee was in the car with us) kept the car window facing the field open so that I could take photos. The rain kept coming in through the window, and we had to keep mopping it up. Thank goodness for the cleaning cloths that I keep in the car.
Here are a few photos (of Kevin) that I took with my fabulous Tamron lens. And that's not snow in the photo, it's rain, lots of rain. Every now and then, the guys had to wipe the rain off their faces in order to see the ball better. One thing the rain did not do was to dampen anyone's spirit. These are great kids!
I also took some fun photos of rain drops that were falling off the weather protector shield on my car window.
Each drop has an upside down reflection of the playing field. Also, each drop is outlined (I did not do this). I'm thinking that the outline is just more reflections. Hmmm? It took a while to figure out how to catch the drips just as they broke away from the frame.
I got lots more fun photos, but I have to crop a few of them first before I can post them here. When we got home, Joe had just finished filling the bird feeder and I got some adorable shots of our new feathered babies. Again, I'll post some photos as soon as I have a chance to crop them.
This morning, Pogo and I are going to his hospital. It's time for his annual check up, and he's supposed to be getting booster shots. However, he's trying to get over a nasty little cold, so I'll have to ask the doctor if he should still get the shots or if the shots can wait a few more days.
Two days ago, Pogo couldn't even bark. When he tried to bark, a sound came out that sounded like a doggie scream. It scared the dickens out of us. By yesterday, his bark was coming back. Today it actually sounds like a Pogo bark. Last night, he ate some of his food, and today he's looking a bit more like his own self. (I have to admit though, that Joe cooked steak for supper last night and shared it with Pogo Maybe that's why he was eating?)
Last night, I got all cozy in my lounge chair and put a couple more rows on the navy blue afghan before sleep crept in and overtook me. Even Pogo slept, all curled up in the afghan on my lap. Must be something about fresh air that makes us sleep.
Well, that's it for this morning. We have to be getting ready to leave for Pogo's appointment soon. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
