Giving the Raspberries

     King got another puppy shot today. He is growing well. He now weighs 54 pounds. He grew 15 pounds in just a month. He continues to be a well-mannered dog and good companion to yours truly. He is just playing with Connie, giving her the raspberries, as she took his picture.
     The clouds abound today and sprinkles come and go. The weatherman says we broke the all time record for rainfall in one year….. and we still have over nine weeks of this year to go 😮
     Outside the wind is steady and cold. The dampness chills a man to the bone in a short time. I usually have no trouble knowing how to dress, but these damp, windy fall days test a guy’s knowledge! If I put too many layers on, I’m hot, too few and I’m cold… I guess that is the idea of the layers. Now, if I can just remember to bring them all back in, after I take them off.
     The horses worked good today. The cool weather makes them feel good. There are no flies to swat at or be bitten by. The sun is warm but not relentless and the only sweat that can be seen, is just under the harness. I guess we are all more comfortable working in the cooler temperatures.
     Next year’s strawberries have been planted in the raised beds. I am hoping to get a raspberry bed made, amended and planted yet this fall. The rainy weather seems to have other plans. I guess it can be said that the weather is giving me ………….. “The Raspberries!”          😮

Mom always said she preferred it cold because you could always put enough clothes on to keep you warm but you could never get enough clothes off to get ya cooled down! As for King I would hate to be the sorry one to knock on your door!!! 🙂
