The phone rang on Friday and this little, excited, voice said,
"Nanaw, Nanaw, I gotta new puppy, him's Frankie!"
"Beans, is that you?"
"Yep, I gots a new puppy, Frankie, I wuv him!"
"Oh Wow! A new puppy, where did you get him, did you go to the forest and find one of those lost puppies and bring one home?"
"Nope, I got him at da Wal Mart."
(Nanaw's laughing out loud by now)
"At Wal Mart? You found a puppy at Wal Mart? You bought him at the store? Beans, let me talk to your Momma."
Once Jerri captured the phone from Beans, who was through talking anyway beings that she had a new critter to "pway wit", she told me that they really had gotten the puppy from outside the local Wal Mart where someone she knew had a whole box full, and was trying to find new homes for them. So, y'all meet Frankie.
The winter wheat harvest is almost done around here. My head's been stopped up cause of all the smoke from the fields the farmers are burning. A few of them practice no-till where they just plant in the wheat stubble, but there are many more of the ones who practice idiocy (like we need all that pollution).
Anyway, what I'm leading up to is the reason I'm posting these cloud pictures. I call them wheat clouds because they form when they're burning the wheat stubble. There will be anywhere from 3 to a dozen of these clouds in the sky every time you look. I'll be glad when they're all done.
A few more blooms are popping open around the yard. This sunflower grew from a seed dropped from the bird feeder so it's our first bloomer this year. Zach's multicolored ones will be blooming later on, I hope. Above the sunflower is one of the blooms on the rose moss from the flower boxes. I love these little delicate blooms and especially love all the different bloom colors.
Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies out in blogland!!
