Oh, crap.

We are going to end up with WAAAY more zucchini than we will ever be able to handle. We already got about 12 large ones off the 4 plants we planted. What were we thinking??? Last year we planted 2 plants and I just used the last batch of frozen shredded zucchini last month.

At least we have something coming in! Our garden has been ravaged by what we thought were rabbits. Between owning a greyhound and a cat that will take out anything with feathers or fur (including bats, moles, voles, squirrels, blue jays and anything else that dares to enter his territory) we have never had problems.

Come to find out it wasn't a rabbit that decimated the chard, ate the tops of ALL of the pepper plants, bit into the cucumbers and nibbled down the tomatoes.

The cat is forgiven.

Bennett and I spent a lovely afternoon at the zoo a couple of weeks ago. We got to see the elephants getting a bath, the penguins swim, and lots and lots of ducks.

He's been fixated on giraffes lately and has even taken to carrying around his Sophie...

Father's Day

A Father means so many things...
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he's a man like you...
