You may have heard there was some wild weather is this part of the world yesterday. Fortunately, we escaped with high winds and a ridiculous amount of rain. The rain did wash a lot of the mulch and gravel down the hill in the back yard but that is fixable. However, we are still preparing for some wild times here at The Ranch.
Georgia returns home on Tuesday. She's had a great time at her first National Specialty. She's not bringing home any ribbons but she got to see her mom do really well at the show and she got to spend time with her Aunties Liz, Marla, Diana and Mac. Apparently a few people even offered to buy the Princess! Not that we would ever sell but I think if Liz had ended up having to replace a cell phone on this trip she might have been tempted :)
In preparation for the return of Georgia, UHM and I did some yard work today. The young, tender shrubs in the back yard are now wearing crinolines of wire to protect them from the predations of the baby dogs. And to think we used to worry about deer eating the plants.
