Tuley stayed inside today, so I rushed home to let him out. I didn't make it quite in time, but overall he did pretty well. He is back to his old self - he is currently demanding dinner, 45 minutes early.

Tuley, a.k.a. Baboon Butt, is doing pretty well. He's eating a little more each time and was excited about feeding time tonight. Our neighbor boy stopped this evening while I was in the backyard to ask a few questions about ol' Tuley. He wanted to know if they're called sheepdogs because they look like sheep. :) As we chatted, I thought he might be wondering about the weird haircut, so I explained that Tuley had been sick and the vet had had to shave his backside. He smiled and said, "He's still a cute dog." :)

Dale and Melanie hosted the crawfish boil along with Kevin. I intended to be brave and adventurous and try just a teeny bit. I didn't succeed. I blame Rob - once I heard him ask David if he wanted the eyeballs and I noticed that they STILL HAD EYES, I was done for. No creepy crawlies for me, thank you. There were lots of other tasty treats, so I was in luck.
Here are some of the more hardy souls, peeling and eating away.
Stobbe entertained us all with "Crawfish Theater" using the carcases as finger puppets. Despite chickening out when it came to sampling the delicacy that is crawfish, it was a great time.

We enjoyed Memorial Day weekend with a barbecue at our house. David whipped up some potato salad, burgers, and brats. The real highlight of the evening was the homemade ice cream. David got me a White Mountain ice cream freezer for Christmas and it was time for its maiden voyage. It was delicious!
Amos the Amur Maple and Sterling the Silver Maple are both doing well.
The impatiens in the hosta garden have really taken off this week. Tuley forgot about prepositions last week and laid in them again. They've snapped back and seem to be okay.
All for now...
