Hiking Tanglewood.

Sunday morning was partly cloudy, so I rushed to our local nature center for a nice, cool walk in the woods, hoping to be there and back before it rained.

Got some great shots and a lot of new aches and pains.

I think it was worth it.

Ahem! Your attention, please!

If you haven't yet discovered my Everloving Blogmother Sissy Willis' site, you are missing out on some excellent photography. Just as I dearly love my Chemung River and the surrounding countryside, so Sissy grooves on Chelsea.

Chelsea is a port city and Sissy watches and catches it all on film. Her work is to be featured at Chelsea's Pearl Street Gallery, and they will open with a gala party.

Sadly, this little homebody will remain close to her River.

Go visit with Sissy
, and see why her photos were selected for display at the local artshop.

Brava, Sissy!

Music.

It's not just for Friday any more.

Visit Norm first, then open a popup for the player, so you can surf the net to the tunes. This time, though, it's a video composition.

The River is Low

It's noisy and it stinks!

Actually, it isn't too bad in the downtown area, where the water is still spilling over the dam. Troutfishing is still good, there.

However, if anyone plans to visit the southern part, just below the city...

Stay out of the water, and away from anything that looks like mud.

My hikers are sitting out on the porch, where I hope the sun will dry them enough to allow me to brush them. Then I will clean them and sit them back in the sun again. Later I will apply some more water proofing, but for now, I can't get near them.

I bathed Ellie and I showered, but when MammaDog came by to collect her, she mentioned that something was very stinky.

SIGH... Still stinky, that is.

Damn these rainy days.

RJ's garden , Thursday, June 5, 2008.
On the other hand, we wouldn't have such a lush garden without precip. There's a very young bunny out there, but he's hiding from me right now. The spinach calls him every morning just before RJ goes to work. We haven't the heart to shoo him.

Now for just a touch of the sunny days of yore. Look fast, because they run away like an excited HuggaMutt!

Just kidding. The forecasters promise temps in the mid 80s (approx 27C) later today and 90's (32C) tomorrow.
