I'm Hunting Wabbit...

I got home from work today thinking I'd take a long bike ride since I REALLY need to start some serious training for the MS150. One of the first things I do, after getting home from work every day, is to let Ernie out and check my garden. Ernie and I played ball for a few minutes and then I stepped over the fence to check things out in the garden. I was looking under squash leaves for new squash, under cucumber leaves for new cucumbers, and under cantalope leaves for new cantalopes. When I squatted down to look at the green beans, a "Wascally Wabbit" was wooking wight back at me. After wooking at each other for a few seconds I said, "What are you doing in here?" He didn't answer. He just wan wight out of the gween beans and wight thwough a hole he had, obviously, chewed in the fence. SSSSSSOOOOO... my bike ride was put on hold while I made a quick trip to Lowe's for some GALVANIZED WIRE fence. I took out the old fence, which was made of some sort of plastic, and mowed the fence line. I got the wire fence up, but forgot to get wire cutters while I was at Lowe's, so the majority of my second roll is going to have to lean against the fence until tomorrow when I can go back to get the wire cutters. With the amount of rain we've had in the last several days, the garden is thriving. I had no idea that vegetables could double in size in 24 hours. I need to get out there and pull the weeds sometime. The grass seems to be coming back in faster than Curtis tilled it up.

This picture is quite humorous, I think. Apparently, Ernie REALLY likes the smell of freshly cut grass and couldn't resist rolling in it as I mowed. It doesn't show up very well with the dark green grass in the background of the picture, but he looks like he's wearing a green mask - and he looks to be very proud of it! No worries... I called the groomer and she has an opening on Saturday morning. Kelly (Ernie's groomer and friend) can get ANYTHING out of white hair!!
