Rain Delay

We had planned a back yard barbecue for Dad's Day. The weather dude said it would be a nice weekend and not to cancel any of our outdoor plans. Ha! We woke up to thunder and lightning on Saturday and it rained buckets all day and most of yesterday. The same stupid weather dude apparently forgot his Friday forecast and told us we had 10 inches of rain on Saturday. Then guess what, the same thing happened this morning. Thunder and lightning and lots of rain. Bummer!
The back yard thing was out. We spent the whole weekend laying around.
But it was OK because we spent the weekend laying around with Dad.
Mom made barbecued steak and bleu cheese potatoes and broccoli and even a blackberry pie yesterday. We all got a taste of everything so it wasn't so bad and we can still have out outdoor party when the rain stops.

Some of my happiest life memories are of rainy days curled up in dogs. Wet dog fur reminds me of those days and it is a pleasant smell for me.

Probably not marketable as a room deodorizer though.

It looks like Dad had a great day with all of you for company. And if Mom made him pie on top of all of that great food, well, it must have been the best day ever! There will be more barbecue days. While 10" is excessive, I'm sure Dad was happy to have the sky take care of watering the yard.

You guys are really cool. Wow that is a lot of rain. We don't even get that much rain in a week.

Bleu cheese taters? Will you share the recipe?

I see that your Daddy's girls stake their claims the same way it happens at our house. Sis firmly believes that if she sits on it, it is hers, and she taught Gg the same philosophy.

It looks like that around here on cooler days--only it's cats. You sure got allot more rain than we did. I think we got close to three inches. Did you get any flooding?

You got 10 inches of rain in one day! Wow! Looks like you had a great weekend in spite of it. I think I'd have to rig up some sort of indoor doggy toilet for Wrigs if we lived in a place where it rains a lot. Either that, or I'd have to erect a canopy over the yard. He does not like being rained on.
