Rodeo in the Rain

All Day Pond Report:
Blurry Osprey
Cream Bloom Inside
Wet Roses




The big news is that we drove off pond to Sagle and hauled a washer and dryer out of a rental unit for just $200. A great bargain as it is a matched set, only 4 years old and very nice. I've never had a matched set! Todd is my muscle-man; I guided and helped strap the set into the back of our truck, "Blue Goose."

Returned to Elmira Pond and the mountains shrouded in mist. The roses are drenched, but no less beautiful. One even joined me inside to decorate my window. The merganser is huddled on the log, head rotated so that her saw-bill is resting on her back. An osprey flew in and I struggle to unplug my camera and shoot out my rainy office window, but watch him catch a fish first try.

The rest of today's blog is dedicated to the spirited horses, kicking at the rain. They do have a barn to seek shelter, by the way. Enjoy the  "Rodeo in the Rain," brought to you by three-year-olds, Snapper (the wet sorrel mare) and Pistol (the equally wet grullo gelding).
