Howdy, I mean YO, from New York

We're baacckkk.

We had many delays getting here and finally rolled in after midnight. The girls burst into the house, petted the animals and made a beeline for the garden to check on their produce.

It did not disappoint. These are just the cucumbers the girls picked by flashlight in the middle of the night, plus the one they ate on the spot. I can't wait to see the garden in daylight.

Which, naturally, begs the question, "What the heck is Barb doing up in the wee hours when she must be totally exhausted?"

Well, it turns out that a certain incontinent cow dog is just too excited to let the Coopers sleep and since my husband has a huge day at work today, I got up with the dog. At 3:00 AM and again at 4:15. Because he was crying and I thought that meant he really needed to go out. And after the 4:15 Peeing, I couldn't go back to sleep.

Ha. Joke's on me.

The joke is ALWAYS on me when it comes to Scout.

It's good to be home.

I think.


I am unspeakably jealous of your cucumbers.

I had a vision of your daughters out in the garden in the dark. That was priceless!

Hope you get some sleep soonish.

Oh, dear. If it's not one thing, it's another, isn't it? Well, welcome home anyway! Hope you got a good nap in!

Better incontinent dog than one with the fantatit of the runnits...pew! I have to go home at noonish today, just to see if she's okay, let her out of the bathroom (banishment when you have diarrhea)and outside...I don't know what she got into yesterday, but it's surely made her sick. Have to pick up some anti-diarrheal for her at the pharmacy on the way home.

And I have two words for you that will take care of your day--POWER NAP. By noon, I'll need one as well.
