The Summer is Flying
We went to Dorchester Old Home Days on Saturday. We participated in a tug of war, ate ice cream and Brandon got to ride a pony around and around and around... no one else was in line when he got there, so they just kept going. He really enjoyed that. We saw a man talk about his work with black bear... very interesting... then we came home and went to a birthday party for a young friend from church. We had ice cream again, then Mr. D and Brandon played a game while Spot and I went for a little dip to cool off in the river.
so serious here... not sure what he was thinking about, but probably about the car. He had asked hundreds of questions about it, how did it start, were there lights, how old was it... etc...etc...
The garden has gone wild. It's hard to walk around out there without stepping on something. We had to consolidate the squash a little this year, so they are crowding out almost everything else. We ate zucchini last night and the night before and will probably be looking for unlocked cars soon. The Jacob Cattle beans are coming and I snitched a few last night just for munching. Basically the garden is a sea of green. Thank you Lord for the wonderful weather. I brought some cukes today for a friend at work who loves them and eats them everyday summer and winter. Next week we'll be doing pickles, no doubt. We make a garlic dill. Very crispy and excellent on burgers and even on pizza (OK, I know that sounds goofy, but really they are excellent on pizza). The pizza thing was discovered by some kids we were working with at the time who actually did it for a joke, but turns out they were really good.
