Last night, after a day in the shop, I took a look at Lucy and decided that she needed a bath and a hair cut. She was looking like a poor neglected girl. I try to keep her clipped fairly short to cut down on the hair balls that roll over the floors like tumble weed. Also when her hair is shorter she doesn't seem to pick up as much dirt and dust from the shop and the yard. Well she did get the bath last night and I dried her, but she needs to be completely dry in order to use the clippers. Doesn't she look like she's thinking...I'm bathed, I'm clean, don't you think that's enough? Later today she'll get a hair cut. I put the hair onto the compost pile in the yard this time of year. The birds actually will use the hair to build their nests. What they don't use, I'll just turn it over when I turn the compost and a little bit of Lucy will be in the gardens later in the year.
I want to thank all who paid Holly a visit on her blog. I talked with her this morning and she was so very touched that you would take the time to give her words of encouragement.
We have had some good news this morning, my niece, Melissa, went into labor a little while ago, and baby Paul should be arriving soon. Now Dylan will have a new boy cousin to play with. All his other cousins, close to his age, are girls.
Wishing you all a wonderful day...
