Another quiet day in the neighbor hood.
I did get my drawer repaired and the junk removed. It's funny how the drawers almost empty when the stuff that doesn't belong there is taken out. :)
Abbey got into trouble yesterday on our walk. She got more interest in a gopher hole than me and didn't come when I called her. I had to go back to get her. For that she got a scolding and put on a short lease for the rest of the walk.
A woodpecker has moved into the Norther Edge. I tried to get a picture of the noisy bird but when I got the camera and the zoom set the bird had flown away. :( I'll get that flying noisemaker some time this summer for sure.

I guess spring's coming to the prairie if woodpeckers are after bugs in the trees!

I'll bet Abbey will behave the next time you are out!

Take care!

Good Afternoon Tony!

I know that you, and others, seem to be putting me to shame with all the diligent spring cleaning or repair work, etc. that's been going on, done and discussed. I truly need to set aside some time, within the month, to finally clean out some closets of old unusable clothes, etc. and/or, in general, just reorganize and adhere to the KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetheart) method. Sadly, recent years have shown me as a procrastinator in some of these areas. Just so many other things going on. Hopefully, I'll soon find the energy and impetus to tackle it all, before summer's upon us. I do hate clutter and disorganization, especially, in what I consider as my home office.

Well, in my area, May's off to a very chilly rainy start. We certainly don't begrudge the rainfall, as we still have quite the shortfall to make up, but it's the now chilly 45F temp that has me acting wimpish. I find I'm no longer made of the once sturdier, regional New England stock as I once was. LOL!

Hope your May Day is a decent one and that those currently warm 65F temps of yours will spread to my area real soon! Don't be too harsh on Abbey, as strong hunting instincts will overtake most of her breed from time to time.

Sounds like you had quite the day yesterday. Good for you in fixing your drawer and getting it organized. Poor Abbey, got so interested in her gopher hunting she forgot the Golden Rule...always come when Daddy calls. I am sure she will remember when you go on a walk later.

Have a great day. Looks like rain for you folks although it could be like here, cloudy with rain all around us but slowly moving on...
