Greetings From Mudland

I haven't blogged in a long time because not much interesting happens around here.  Since I've become an older, more solid citizen, I take most things in stride and not much alarms me anymore.  It's all old hat.  Summer in the Northeast has been cool and wet.  It's been so muddy that twice already I've turned my right front shoe into a flip flop.  Brita does not like getting called at 9pm on a Sunday evening to come and help me finish taking my shoes off so I've gotten a new, permanent addition to my equipment.

Italian made rubbers.  Only the best for muck boots.

Another nice thing about the cool summer is that the flies have not been too bad.  Until today.  My gnat hat failed to protect me.  This fly went straight for the jugular.  Nasty thing.

Today Brita and Uncle Dad finally hauled my playground equipment out of storage so maybe in the coming weeks we will have more to blog about.  Mom is usually our photographer and she has been very busy keeping an eye one the newest little horseback rider around here and doesn't have a lot of time to take pictures.  ... of horses.
