Here is a picture of the sun at 6:15 this morning:
And here it was tonight, about an hour or so ago:
Ooopsss.... no sun! It was the other thing I wanted you to see.... the clouds in the west! We have a 30 percent chance of rain. I am so hoping. We have had 3 blistering days of sun and heat, and the animals around here need a break, as does our electric bill.
Here are Gertie and Hannah on the deck having a drink of ice cold well water tonight
And here's Ranger having a drink with his big feet.... this is how he has always had a drink of water!
Keith had to put the little brassy down last night... we did not want him to suffer. I listened long and hard to the other juveniles tonight, but could not hear any barking or congested breathing. The black standard hen Libby is no longer barking, so maybe things are subsiding. I won't count on it until I see it, though. What a month it has been!
