We have been having the weirdest weather the last couple of days. Very eerie weather, dark, foreboding and humid. Yesterday we had tornado warnings which is a very rare occurrence in these parts. As the police say there was a 'hinky' feeling in the air. I bet I put the horses in and out four times. I got soaked several times including when I was grilling hamburgers out on the back deck! Nick spent most of the day in the barn even though he could go out other then the times I put them in their box stalls. He's a wimp when it comes to rain but yesterday I had that funny feeling too.
The guys are here to put up the new swing set for the grandchildren. It's pouring cats and dogs out so hopefully it will stop before long. This is what the swing set looks like now. I'll put in the finished product next post! :0)
Big news in Maine this week! A lady opened her washing machine and found a snake six feet long in there! She hurriedly put the cover back on and called the police who called animal control who called the exotic pet guy. They are saying this thing came up through the pipes but according to my plumber there is no way under the sun that that could happen. With all the traps and small pipes it's just not possible.
My mother was going through some pictures yesterday and found this one of my grandfather when he was going into World War 1. He was 19 years old at the time. He has been gone for many years but if he were alive he would be 108 as he was born in 1900.
This is my porch swing. I LOVE my porch swing and call it my Walton's Swing after the show the Walton's which is a favorite of mine. I had this swing specially made and it is long enough to take a nap on and wide enough so you don't fall off if you move. I have rocked my grand kids to sleep on this swing many times when they were babies and sat there with them while they napped. They still love the swing and are usually on it about every time they come over. Now they are more adventurous and like to go fast and hit the house if at all possible! Also they like to stand up on it like they are surfing...........I don't like that as I don't want them to fall. We also like to blow bubbles out there and have Noodles chase the bubbles. Another thing I like is to sit out there during a storm and watch the lightening. I used to do that with my son so that he wouldn't be scared of thunder storms and it worked. We get some pretty good lightening as we are right beside the Penobscot River and it seems to follow the river. Everyone should have a swing. We had a swing on our porch when I was growing up and we loved it. That's my advice for the day, if you have a place anywhere on your property put in a swing for you kids or grand kids! :o)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! :o)
