Hair Salon

Well, today was the day.  It only took us 3 hours to shampoo, blow dry, and clip Lewis.  We're getting the time down each time we do it.  He is such a good boy, he stands calmly while we manhandle and tickle him trying to clip but not cut him.  We couldn't bear it if we drew blood, he's so trusting and patient with us.

We had a visitor to our "Hair Salon" that I'll bet none of you have ever seen at yours....a baby diamond back rattle snake was inside our ex pen fenced area.  

Luckily we hadn't let the dogs out ahead of us as we usually do.  Dave escorted the little darling away  from Beluga and we set up shop.

As is his habit, Dave trimmed his own hair after doing Lewis.  Lisa, if you're reading this you'd better cover your eyes -  you don't want to hear what I'm about to say.
Dave came in and asked me how his hair looked.  I almost choked - it looked like he had some terrible skin disease.  Chunks were shaved short among other long sections.  It almost looked like the hair loss associated with cancer treatments.  I tried to even it out, to no avail.  His nice new human hair trimmer has given up the ghost.  Here's the part that Lisa will hate.....we took Lewis's clipper and buzzed Dave's head.  Perfect !
Out with the man clipper, Lewis's will do double duty from now on.  We figure if you find something that works, go with it, right?

This quiet campground has filled up with fishermen.  There are more boats here than campers!

We ended the day with a delicious baby back rib dinner from the local bar (the only restaurant in Plymouth).
It was wonderful, my first rib dinner ever.  Dave is finishing the dishes so we can sit down and watch the Olympic opening ceremonies.  We're off in the morning.  Our destination is about 2 1/2 hours north at Cle Elum, Washington.  We have reservations at a small golf course/rv park there for the next 3 nights and then we'll be in Seattle.
