Yes, it was pretty soggy after last night's tremendous thunderstorm, and it rained off and on through the day today. We should be all caught up with any lagging behind in rainfall by now.
Today was Book Club lunch at Betty's house. She put on a really nice lunch for all of us - appetizers, wine, French onion soup, ham and cheese sandwiches, chips, and a dessert to die for - brownies a la mode with chocolate sauce and walnut sauce. Wow! As usual, we had a wonderful time. It was so good to see everyone, since during the time since last month's Book Club, 2 of our members had some extremely serious family health issues - a heart attack for a son and a lung operation that nearly cost his life for a husband. Both are recovering very well, and we are so glad!
Betty has a new dog - a chihuahua named Peek-a-Boo. She's going to be a real handful, I can tell. Betty has another dog, a dachshund named Hans. Heidi, the other old dachshund, died a couple of months ago, and poor little Hans misses her so much. She's buried in the back of the yard, and somehow he knows that, even though he was nowhere around when she was buried. But he goes up to her grave and sits there. This little pip squeak is no Heidi, and he isn't at all pleased. He's such a sweetie. Tried to take these photos from across the room with my iPhone, so they're pretty bad, but you get the idea. Peak-a-Boo has her own chair, as you see. Betty is holding her in the first photo.
