Chance of rain threw next Monday - Was calling for NO rain today - But radar at 6:57 begs to differ !

Advanced forecast - at this time - calling for up to 2- 2 1/2 inch's of liquid sunshine !

Like they say in Top Gun - Tensions are high !

Nice read on planting progress across the corn belt - this should bring you up to date when talking to your neighbors - lol

- Dad had baited son with photos (via text), of my bbq the day before
- it was cold enough / so bbq wasn't getting up to the heat range...I like
- but mom & dad, still pulled off a good meal



Mom made awesome fries - potato slices covered in Olive oil, spiced up & done in oven.



BabyBear getting ready, to mow-down...on supper.

Well, about 8 inches of snow on the ground; schools are closed. My cottonwood has lost some big branches up high, but it's hard to tell how much damage there is because the branches are still snow covered and bending down quite a bit. It's away from the house, so there's no danger of a branch coming down onto the house, but I don't want to lose the tree.

The deer are having a smorgasbord....

I imagine it depends on whether the deer have lots of tasty suburban plantings to eat vs their normal wild diet too.

Anyway, I am as excited as you get seeing a mule deer, when I see a whitetail--which we have, but they're not nearly as common as the muleys, generally found only in our thickety river bottom land.
Oh! Maybe we just have huge whitetail here. They sure eat a lot out of our garden. Put a 8ft fence up to keep them out this year though! They may have been young ones. None of them appeared to be Male either so maybe that makes a difference too.

Update on the long hair doberman - she is in pretty good health for her age. A few lumps here and there but overall pretty good. Will get bloodwork back tomorrow. They were able to shave her into a lion cut pretty well, with only a few nicks that dont look too bad. She's not overly happy about it but we are headed back home so she can relax in her room for a while.

I'm sort of here--Tornado Alley (or is it Hurricane Alley-I can never remember which ones develop over water and which ones occur over land) is living up to it's name--makes me cringe just to see the pictures of touch dawns and the resulting wreckage left in their passing.

Sorry to hear about the sorry sounding farm reports Kenny--it's getting a little better in Eastern Washington and Oregon states (quite a lot of grain crops grown there) the Willamette Valley tends to be a salad bowl for awhile and then it's the vegetable bowl.

And as for me and my sciatica and the aftermath of my epidural steroid injection--there are evidently a variety of treatments and the expectation for each if widely variable.

Unlike the old dude that Kenny talked about I didn't come out doing any Irish jigs but the procedure itself was less painful than I expected but trying to first get me on my stomach to do the steroid injection and then trying to get me back on my back after the procedure was ACK GHASTLY!!!! They kept trying to move me by pulling on my ever so affected left leg and it felt like they trying to amputate it--I was embarrassingly whiney about it. Then as the final they were trying to get my blood pressure one more time--first while I was still lying down--we couldn't manage that so I tried sitting up---OWWCHHH--sitting has always been the worst position--and they didn't even want to record my post procedure BP from sitting--they were done--I was done--I stood up--it hurt. I walked in tny slow steps to reclaim my driver who said "We are going shopping for a walker--tomorrow!" Well we will go shopping but not today since her intact bitch decided to present with all the symtoms of pyometra and is now down at the main repro vet in Wilsonville being spayed this afternoon.

By the time she got me home and out of her SUV (which involved sitting and painful and I had walked to the front door I realized that my left leg didn't hurt any more and I could walk almost normally--WOW!

So I actually went out yesterday afternoon and did some weeding and some planting of stuff that is in pots and have since found out that the beginning of walking after every period of lying down (sitting is still the worst position) it takes 15 to 20 minutes for everything to loosen up and feel pretty good--sure beats what was going on before.

So that's the invalid report for now--weather in Portland area is mostly sunny off and on with some passing shows and I'm going to go finish the trimming of the camillias before it has one of those passing showers since it's clouding up some. Supposed to be increasing fair weather and rising temperatures--61 today but getting up to a maybe 80 for Sunday and only a little lower on Memorial Day.

John--I'm sorry you are much the worse for wear with McCoy's unexpected attempt to chase a cat. Falls down stairs are just the worst. Hope to see a recovery report soon.

I need food--what with the stuff the CT'ers have been posting about food and the television which is showing shots of a huge pan of paella that someone is cooking I feel like I'm starving.

PS--they just showed a shot of the national types of weather going on--no luck for you Mel--you better dry those warm socks off--the whole area around the Rockies says snow, snow and more snow--start praying for June...

ABTLHH--but not so much today.

I was able to snap a photo before the *formerly* long hair doberman skulked off to her hiding spot.

It's not a pretty lion cut, but at least her mats are gone.

Bug...glad to hear you are feeling some relief. The burning question in my mind is whether, in your process of squealing on the treatment table, you taught them any new curse words.

Snow's over here, and this time of year it melts pretty fast. The roads are definitely clear, though they may still be wet tonight and we've got a freeze warning. I don't think it will really get cold enough for there to be ice on the roads, but I didn't think we'd have 8 inches of snow either.

I have an appointment in Monument just north of us at 4:00. I looked out the window this morning to see what damage had been done and cancelled the appointment. But the roads have cleared up nicely, so the appt. is back on.

The cottonwood lost about 4 big branches, but appears to have gotten through the storm OK--it's just a little scraggly around the top and no longer 50 feet tall.

Mel,

I don't think I added much to anyone's collection of common or uncommon cuss words--I believe I might have mmbled "f**k no!", in answer to the question if I was all right?

Lol, cottonwoods--I'm more familiar with cottonwoods than anyone should be. Cotton woods were one of the fast growing trees planted throughout South Dakota as wind breaks in large crop fields during the drought and wind periods. Like all trees of that genus they are sort of brittle an rather prone to rot on both trunks and large limbs and drop them at the drop (pun intended) of a hat.

And then I dscovered that a lot of the 50 odd year old neighborhoods in Portland had black cottonwood planted as a fast grower to make new devopments look more settled. The grow fast and get enormjous --had one in a front yard the I measured that was nearly 6feet in circumference. It dropped several tons of leaves for me to pick up every fall and during every storm that was accompanied by wind it dropped branches but it's really big time accomplishment was during a bad ice storm that lasted about four days and was alternating torrential rain with very cold weather producing LOTS of ice it dropped a branch the size of the average tree trunk through t spare bedroom roof.--and then it rained some more and the angle that the branch fell at produced a minor waterfall in the spare bedroom.

It's the only time in recorded history that my landlord actually got someone out to fix anything in that house the whole time I lived there (almost 5 years).

Glad it was a quick snow and melt for you.

I'm going out to run errands, go to the library and the grocery store--that's how good I feel!!!

ABTYLH--not so limpy or hobbly today.

You must be feeling better if you're going back in and correcting typos!!!

Yeah, cottonwoods are not really supposed to be included in the landscaping because they don't live long, are messy and break easily. But I miss the big trees in Louisiana, so I let this one come up wild where it had placed itself. It's far enough from the house it's not a threat; I just have to deal with its messiness and self-pruning.

Ours lives up to its true name by obligingly coating the yard with white fuzzies every year, but I don't actually find those too bad. It's those sticky bud covers it drops as it starts to leaf out; they stick to the bottoms of your shoes, your feet if you're barefoot (which I often am) and to the dog's fur. Harold DogDog is furrier than the dobes, so he's right on the edge of needing a combing rather than just a sleeking down to get the sticky things off every time he comes in. That part should be almost done for the year though.

The leaves aren't horrendous. We get quite a lot of wind, so our leaves end up somewhere else. Across the street, I imagine--but everyone's yards are big here and deciduous trees are relatively rare, so its not that big a deal. To me. But I really don't think the tree is gifting too many people with its droppings.

I just saw a coyote dog-trotting down the sidewalk like he belongs here (he does, I guess) DogDog is going wildish, so i guess I'd better go calm him. Later.....

Edited to add:
Your acronym is getting a bit long...I mean ABTNSLOHTACF (Auntie Bug The Not So Limpy or Hobbly Today And Curse Free) may be going too far. It'll be nice when you can be JAB again. (Just Auntie Bug)

R2017...Long-haired Dobe looks just a touch embarrassed to be caught without her knickers on, but I bet it feels a lot better. I'm glad they didn't nick her up too badly. I hope she comes out from her hiding place and joins the rest of the world soon.

We had Trip fixed the day after we brought him home (he was getting to THAT age, and we didn't want him to start developing a habit, you know). He sat behind some boxes in one corner of the spare room after we picked him up and all of the next day, without moving. We had a baby gate at the door just to keep him where we could find him, but in the middle of the following night, we could tell he had jumped out because we could hear him around the house checking things out (and knocking things over).

He was innocently back in his corner by morning, and spent the next few days watching me from hidden places. I was painting the kitchen, so he was able to sit behind the plants in the dining room and watch the action without being seen (he thought) and I could check on him. But if I made it too obvious that I saw him, he would slink off to another place to hide and watch, so I spent a couple of days (as I removed wallpaper and painted) peering at him out of the corner of my eye.

By the next day, he seemed to have decided I was a harmless drudge; he walked up, rubbed me all over and flopped in front of me, belly up. And he's never looked back.

He sat behind some boxes in one corner of the spare room after we picked him up, and all of the next day without moving. We had a baby gate at the door, just to keep him where we could find him, but in the middle of the following night, we could tell he had jumped out because we could hear him around the house checking things out (and knocking things over).

He was innocently back in his corner by morning, and spent the next few days watching me from hidden places. I was painting the kitchen, so he was able to sit behind the plants in the dining room and watch the action without being seen (he thought) and I could check on him. But if I made it clear that I saw him, he would slink off to another place to hide and watch, so I spent the day peering at him out of the corner of my eye.

By the next day, he seemed to have decided I was a harmless drudge; he walked up, rubbed me all over and flopped in front of me, belly up. And he's never looked back.
Yeah, she seems much more comfortable now. She did slink around the house a little bit yesterday evening while Radar was outside, so she is getting there. Hoping he won't scare her.

So actually went outside and glared at the tree some more...there are still a few smallish branches hung up in its canopy, but most of the larger ones that were going to fall have already. It's getting a little breezy so I hope the rest come down soon. Of course none of the out-of-reach dead branches that I've been wishing would come down did; they didn't have any leaves to catch the snow.

Did a quick measurement on it...the trunk is almost three feet across, about 9 feet around, at chest height, so it will grow a lot more. Apparently 6 feet across is about its mature size. I know it is about 28 years old (it was just a baby when we moved in...time flies), so it should have another 30-40 years. Hopefully old enough that I don't have to deal with its senescence.

Other than that, it's a dull day. All in all, not much excitement around here--how's our OK person doing?? Indiana? Check in anyone....

Nope, it's all his.

I just inherit his leavings when he needs to upgrade.

STJ!
I am sorry that you got busted up.



At least you didn't injure your wiping arm/hand/wrist!

Or, did you?

It's not a pretty lion cut, but at least her mats are gone.

She will get over it and she has to feel better.

Pretty Kitty!
