Stig visits Camp Stanhope 07 26 2013

One of the few pictures I have of our grand-dog still enough to be photographed (outside, at least!). 
 This is the 'normal' picture of Stig outside, running almost non-stop the whole time and loving every piece of the almost 3 acres of grass we own!
 Nice picture of the west side of the yard yesterday in the early morning hours (Stig is an early-riser!  This morning he got up at 5:03 a.m.!!!  Oh well.)
Stig has been VERY good with the cats at our house (he has Grace's siblings, Pat & Ron, living with him at his own house, so he's used to kitties).  Here's Gracie plodding through the yard even though Stig is outside playing too.

07 20 2013 Watermelon Day, Stanhope, Iowa

 The color guard started the parade. (That's our neighbor, Miss Samantha, one of our cat sitters!  She's going to be 16 years old in August--I can't believe how much she's grown!!)
There were rescue trucks from EVERY close town around here.  In total, 17 of these firetruck/first responder-type vehicles were in yesterday's parade. 
 Free watermelon slices served!!  yum
 A pretty good crowd turned out yesterday for the festivities.  It was supposed to be a 'little cooler' than the 90's we have had this past week, but it got to 91!  The humidity wasn't quite as heavy as it had been, so it WAS a little more pleasant.  
The annual 'tractor pull' for little ones, along with a little help from the City Administrator (who was running the contest).

Summer is here! 07 04 2013

Week "6" of the field corn across the road from us.
 The boat makes is back in our yard--and the motor runs, too!  YEAH!!
