The Bierces hosted the annual Shuffleboard Tournament today. They drew a large crowd that appreciated the change to a lunchtime event. I was eliminated in the first round and joined the crew that completed two 300 piece puzzles in a few hours.
Rain was heavy and continuous throughout the day. I had not turned over a wheelbarrow when I finished work yesterday, and it became an informal rain gauge. The bucket of the wheelbarrow held 2 to 2 1/2 inches of water by the end of the day and the rain continued to fall.
I had prints of my digital photos made at Walgreen’s. I have a collection of before and after pictures, starting with the first day of my retirement last year. It is gratifying to see the progress that has been made, particularly the work invested to clear Piggy’s old pen and his summer and winter quarters. That area is now open land that Mike mows with the tractor.
