My grandson Owen, who we watch 4 days a week.
His first ride on a Harley....OK, so it's my dog Harley.
I am not sure what the statement is behind the bat costume.
Mr. Ethel likes to wake up Owen . Here he is ducking behind his post perch because Wifey has a squirt bottle that she employs to try to keep him quiet. He hates baths.
Every now and then we get to see our other two grandchildren. Here they are watching a movie when they spent the night last Saturday.
And when my son took his wife up north to visit her dad a couple of weeks ago, instead of babysitting Owen we got to take care of his dog Kane.
At home Kane uses the cats as chew toys, not hurting them but mouthing them none-the-less. Here the cats won't put up with that kind of treatment, as Abbey forcibly reminded him.
Our 2 boys weren't very playful this time either, but every now and then they would get into a 3-for-all.
Ethel had had enough of the commotion and was about to go break it up, but the boys tired of the rough-housing just in time.
All summer long I had been planning on building an addition to my chicken coop for the rabbits, but there always seemed to be more important things to get done first. (i.e.- gardening, canning, chopping firewood, walking the goldfish, etc. etc.)
Then as the weather started dipping down towards freezing at night, it couldn't be put off any longer. I called up my private contractors "Eric & Eric Wrecking and Repairing Inc." and begged them to come help "the OLD man" (me) out... (AGAIN)
We planned the construction project for the following weekend, giving me almost a full week to get things ready. I planned on leveling the ground and constructing cement block footings, sorting the wooden shipping pallets I had collected for this purpose and nailing 2 of them end to end to form building sections and then tearing apart the extras and use the slats to fill in the gaps between boards.
However, Mother Nature had other plans. SIX DAYS OF RAIN !!!
Luckily Saturday morning was dry. The boys showed up and I had NOTHING done. Earlier in the week I had talked to my son-in-law Eric and we discussed building the walls on treated 4x4's staked to the ground. We talked it over with my son Eric and decided to go with that.
