The Fool on the Hill

It sure was nice getting to BG yesterday. We were so tired–I’m not sure why–that we decided we didn’t want to eat dinner.

During the night, we kept hearing what sounded like something scratching. Tommy got up and looked around. He found a big bug on the outside of the screen door that was trying to get in so we thought that was where the sound was coming from. We fell back to sleep but kept hearing the noise throughout the night. This morning we heard it again after we were wide awake. The sound was coming from a mouse that had gotten into the dustbuster in our bedroom. It was pretty funny watching Tommy opening the dustbuster to get rid of the mouse.

Tommy also realized this morning that someone had stolen our grill and our American flag. OK, if you need a grill, go ahead and take it. But why take someone’s flag? I don’t know why that bugs me so, but I’m pretty mad about it. Thankfully, we had another one to fly. When we leave to go home, the flag will be put inside the house.

It’s been a nice day here. The clouds have been coming from across the mountains all day long. It is a very nice 79 degrees. We’re hoping for some rain. Things are dry here.

There’s not much blooming here right now. I did take a few shots of some daisies on the side of the house.
We’re looking forward to having Hall here for dinner tonight. I’ve promised to make him a Potato Casserole–that should guarantee that he shows up.
