A few weeks ago a commenter on my blog requested an update on my swamp, pond, lake, or what ever you call it. So, about 18:30 last evening, I took a walk around the place noting a bunch of dead oaks and pines and also walked down to the bottom of the deepest part of what use to be five acres of water. I took a picture of the bottom and here it is:
The only clue that it had rained at all was down deep in the cracks. If you look real close, you can see damp soil or should I be so bold as to say mud? Also, some grass has started to grow there. As you can see, it is going to take a lot of rain just to get the earth wet enough to hold water.
I can just imagine after it first does get some water in it how bad the mosquitoes will be. Why? Because there will be no fish to eat the larva and few frogs. Life as my swamp once knew it is gone and will not return for a long, long time.
We took a sick dog to the Vet’s yesterday. Go out of there with almost three hundred dollars less to our name than when we went in there. Seems they are getting more expensive than people doctors, of course I trust Veterinarians more than I do people doctors.
Hey, you all have a good weekend now, you here? It is actually cold here this morning. It is now only 51 degrees, brrrrrrr, but I love it.
