Wet, Wetter, Wettest
Gloomy, cloudy, gray and wet. Yukky weather to have to leave the house, for sure. Not the best for drying the corn, either, but there's still time before the harvest. Ironically, in the photos, the overall wetness makes color look so rich and the "open shadow" (overcast & even) lighting, doesn't really translate into the generally weepy, gloomy quality all day.
Poor Dakota is trying to get around on 3 legs instead of 4, but at least nothing is broken. The vet speculates that she's sprained something, maybe her shoulder or elbow. It's hard to say because nothing shows up on a couple of x-rays, but she's obviously impaired right now. After way too big a vet bill (sigh, I didn't budget for this little incident) she has a bottle of "pain pills" and will travel with me today after all. I'm actually very happy for her company because it's about a 7 hour drive. And she's supposed to take it easy so being confined to the passenger seat will make that mandatory.
I hope to post from the road over the next few days, if a connection is available--otherwise, a happy weekend to all!
