Dealing with Cabin Fever during our unusual Monsoon Season.

If you were a tree in Northern Kentucky this Summer, you would be a very happy tree. The rainfall totals for June, July and August so far seem to be twice our yearly averages. That doesn't describe the situation here very well but putting it another way, we've had some amount of rain at least 3 or 4 days out of every week for the last 3 months. In fact we have had so much rain, so often, that Ruffin actually went outside to pee the other day while it was still raining. Ruff is the one who will hold off business at the slightest look of rain. If the ground was wet outside he'd stick his nose out the door to check and more often than not, turn around and walk back inside until the Sun came out.

So more rain gets more days stuck indoors. And that leads to cabin fever. And uncut grass. Do you know how fast grass grows in cool and rainy weather?

I haven't posted much in the past two weeks. In between the rain and the drizzle the grass still had to be cut but it had to dry out first. And quite a few times my grass cutting was interrupted by storm clouds. Then there was other chores to be done. I have had the time to collect a few photos and found three taken a few days ago showing how the Rottweilers keep themselves busy.

Every once in awhile old man Axl would open his eyes from his nap on the couch and show he does not approve of the commotion. Then these two would move into my den and start the rough house all over. You can almost hear the sound effects in the last picture. Fact is, I did hear the sound effects while in the den and came in to the room with the camera.
