Down with a Cold and Running Behind

I got a cold. Came down with it last Monday night and spent the next three days pretty much in bed and on the sofa. Ugh. At least it was a pretty quick one, so it wasn't too bad.

Last Sunday, we were able to go down to Buddy and Kay's for the afternoon. Mr. Clark came down with us, so he and Dad fished with Buddy. Then the two of them kayaked in the pond. We "girls" went out to a cemetery not far from the house. Lots of Kay's grandparents are out there and we were on the lookout for all of them. The little bugs were awful, though! Once we got back to the cabin, we sat around and talked. Buddy's written a new song --- watch out, YouTube! I'm going to be making a new music video. More on that coming soon.

Dad and Mr. Clark left around dinner time and went to Chipotle together. We all wanted to keep talking, so Kay had dinner made and we ate there. In the end, we weren't home until about nine o'clock. Not that that's anything out of the ordinary. :) Kay took our picture while we were there, so here it is. We look a little wind-blown, but it was late in the evening at that. ;)

The baby mourning doves are growing by leaps and bounds. There isn't even room for Mama Dove to sit in the nest anymore. The babies are just cuddled up in there --- and they stare at you with round, black eyes. They let me get pretty close the other day to take their picture. Aren't they the cutest?! The flowers are starting to bloom in the garden, too. I was out mowing the lawn yesterday, but the PTO belts are stuck, so the back half of the yard still needs mowing.

We got a bunch of Audie Murphy westerns in from the library the other day, so we're working through some of them in the evenings. We saw what is probably the best A-Western film that we've ever seen. It's called Ride Clear of Diablo, starring Audie Murphy and Dan Duryea. It is so great! The rest of the cast was pretty poor as far as being out of period and just plain bad acting, but it didn't matter, because the main two guys were so stupendous. Don't want to spoil anything by saying more, but it's definitely worth watching. If you like westerns, that is. We're having pizza for dinner, but unless I get the cheese grated --- there won't be any! Better get going. More later.
