The Rebel is back....


Saturday, July 4, 2009


I think it stopped raining.  Gary helped we with chores before going down to the Morgan Manning House.

The horses were grazing on an UNSATURATED pasture.

Even tho I keep the grass short, there is plenty to keep them busy.
While I was finishing up, Jenny came up with the dogs to take them for a run to get them good and tired.  Then she picked spinach and dill for some goodies she was preparing for a 4th of July party at our friend's home on Chautauqua Lake.
Four dogs is a lot!  Especially when Buster Brown is just an annoying puppy.

Gary told Jen he was putting a strain on their relationship!
For the second time, Buster crawled under the back porch and could not figure out how to get out.  I called him and had a flash light shining under there but he just would not trace his steps.
Gary was still gone, so I got a shovel and dug out some of the small stones next to the decking and he was able to crawl out.  What a pain!
Gayle (in Alaska), here are some of the tomato plants Gary and Randy staked up yesterday.
I was testing my camera, so here is a shot from our library looking into the living room.
Jenny had taken the dogs back home from their morning run, and I picked them up around 2:30 after I left the 4th of July activities in the Village.
Buster took a slight rest on the bed under my computer table.  After dinner I took all 4 down the lane for a walk and got carried away taking more shots...could not resist the color.

These are the scapes on Gary's garlic.  You can stir fry them.

I forgot to post my shots of the moon when I went out to take the horse's masks off, so you will just have to imagine it.  Now I am going out to the kitchen where I will attempt to sleep and supervise the quartet.  Night All!


  1. Very nice images again, your dogs are so cute! Love the shape of the garlic!

  2. Hi, Lori and Gary. I think your barley is about a fortnight behind ours, some of which looks about ready for harvesting.
    Regards, Mike and Ann.
