A Bunch of Sleepy Heads Here

It is 6:30am and I am sitting here with Otto, Harvey, and Pearl.  They are all sacked out after having breakfast. I would have like to have slept until 6 or 7, but it is REALLY hard to ignore Pearl once she decides it breakfast time. :-/

Anyway, it rained, rained, and rained more this week.  Sometimes I think it rains here almost as much as Vancouver, but now it is Sunday and we are supposed to have sunny skies.  I really hope so.  On the gray, wet days, I constantly fight the inclination to plot my escape.

I am house-sitting for dad and mom.  They were able to go down to the coast for a young relative's grad party. Would have been nice but when a person works full-time the long drive and quick return is just too much.  So I am dog-sitting for mom and dad so they can go down and enjoy it.  And it is going great.  I was pretty worried about Harvey playing a lot, but his back is holding up good.  Yesterday was very cool.  Pearl spotted a big deer that came up to the fence-line.  She started running in circles barking, which alerted Harvey and Otto, so all 3 of them stood face to face with it barking through the face.  The deer wasn't fazed at all and stood there with its face over the fence chewing, seemingly intrigued by the 3 little crazies.

I pushed my motorcycle under the awning yesterday and did my best to do an oil change on it.  Saves about $150 every few months, but this time I couldn't get the filter screws off.  Grrr...will have to wait til dad gets home to apply some brute force to them.

Okay, must start thinking about the meeting...WT..what to wear, etc.  So everyone have a great day.

Love to all,
d  :-)
