Good Day Without RAIN.
I was out of the door by just after eight today for a walk in slightly cooler NO rain weather.
I enjoying finding all of the toy surprises when I got back home in differing places done by a "flying through the house" Katie. I videoed her toy placements this time and her duckie was next to the water dish this time. She always has a great time the minute I leave in mornings. She even raids her toy basket and brings out some of those. I vacuumed early evening yesterday. Carpet looked good. When I got home this morning, there wasn't a square inch of caret without her foot prints deeply imprinted and dug in with the speed she generated as she raced though the house and returned to bring out her toys to see what she did. .
Nothing pretty or even there as for as flowers are concerned this morning. Generally speaking I just have my phone with me but I had had some decent photos through it this past month. The DSLR is large, heavy and it rides along with me in the car in a "Glass Taxi" with the accompanying lenses etc. Only take it when I am going somewhere that there will not be a lot of extra walking.
I was looking out of the screened window in my room while making the bed last weekend when some men apparently enlisted by the woman next door set about taking the old thoroughly rotted deck down. It had slipped downward on one side badly, and it was hanging on one side a good two feet down ready to completely collapse. I got to the window to watch when an older man, very thin I will add, was engaged in power sawing the support leg of the deck that was up against the house.
He succeeded and the deck fell onto his back, knocked him down of course and sent him rolling down the hill. I was going to call 911 when another man appeared and walked to him apparently asking if he was OK. He made a dismissive gesture and continued working. He was stumbling and having a hard time but would not admit, I guess, what happened. After a week they came back yesterday and the old man was not along with them. He did raise his shirt a few hours later that day for the other guy to see his back. I caught a glimpse of fiery red.
He must be inexperienced to have sawn the leg off that was holding the rotted deck up..though it had fallen downward several feet hanging by the proverbial thread. Poor guy.
That's the fallen deck. The man was under it and was knocked down.
