Between second cup, swimming, walking, fishing, reading, visiting and happy hour, Dave has been chipping away at a few jobs around Beluga.
He has also taken all the cupboard doors off and refinished them. They look like brand new!
|I see you David.....|
In between all his leisure time activities he finds time to sneak tastes of my baking when he thinks I'm not looking. Rhubarb crisp cooling on the counter had his attention this day.
The weather has been on and off. Either it's raining cats and dogs or it is very hot and so muggy that my sun glasses fog up when I walk outside.

the reflected ones are pretty nice

Sometimes a large black poodle enters my view, doing what he loves to do......

|Lewis gets wet retrieving his favorite red "fish" toy|
Lewis enjoys patrolling the dock to keep pesky waterfowl away, he enjoys fishing with Dave, playing with his own red "fish" in the lake but most of all he enjoys helping Dave with whatever he's doing. Earlier this week the task was building the bonfire for our annual 3rd of July Ring of Fire celebration.
|Dave, Dave, where do you want me to drag this, Dave?|
|Dave's "creation" is covered to keep it dry before the grand lighting!|
He also enjoys the party, many of his favorite people are here and he gets plenty of pets. Unfortunately, the party falls on a night where most people around the lake insist on setting off huge fireworks displays and that he doesn't like one bit. It's a good thing we're all friends because in order to use the bathroom that night, one had to step over and/or around Lewis's shaking body. Most of us aren't flustered by having company while they.....well, you know, while they're in the bathroom, thank goodness. No....don't look for any pictures.

That's all I have for you. For us, here, summer is an uneventful time to relax and enjoy the company of old friends. Not a lot of blog fodder I'm afraid!
