It’s amazing all the interesting things you can do in South GA when you aren’t swatting the gnats flying all around your face, up your nose and in your eyes at warp speed! It rained the whole weekend, so we weren’t standing around outside for gnats to bother us. I trust you will be amazed when you see how much we did down on Lovers Lane in Leesburg, GA this past weekend.
This first little “activity” started as soon as we arrived. There was this smell…this awful, something-is-dead smell. Deb had been recovering from her last chemo treatment, so she wasn’t roaming the yard to figure out what had died. And Irvin, well he had been at work and hadn’t really searched out this smell. Debbie was so funny because she asked us several times if we had smelt her “sweet bush” (or something like that, but really, when there is a something-is-dead smell around, the bush might as well be in Texas). Josh took it upon himself to go out the back door and take a look around. He came in and said, “All I know is that y’all didn’t look very hard at all.” We all were curious, so we went outside to see what he had found. Y’ALL– there was a dead dog under a bush by their house!! What in the world? While Josh tried to pull it out with various objects, Irvin was walking around gagging and then giving out suggestions on how to best get the dead dog out from under the bush “without breaking my pitch fork!” And me? I was documenting this event by way of my camera, of course. We sent the kids in with Gran. They would have definitely been scarred. I was.
It was a big dog.
It really was quite sad. And awful. I am so glad we found the source of the putrid smell though. Josh pulled it out into the woods where it will be buried. He did make a visit to the neighbor’s house, where he found out that this dog was a mean dog that many have tried to kill. Josh told her, “Well, somebody succeeded.” He saw the bullet holes when he was getting rid of the body…..
Mack got a hair cut. Josh likes it very short, so short is what it is. PawPaw thought it was hilarious how Mack just sat so calmly while he got his hair buzzed. All three of these Dorminy’s have the same hair do, basically.
Ruby and her dress-up clothes. I must remind myself to NEVER pack real clothes for Ruby. It is simply a waste of my time and it takes up space in the suitcase for no good reason. Gran got two dress up outfits for her, and all she wore the whole time were those two dress up outfits.
The guys bought and put in Gran’s new washer.
It rained and there were tornado warnings and watches…..
I must take a break from posting. We have a busy day today, but there is more!!! Computer game playing, drawing, kite flying, and Mack’s birthday party!!! Maybe tomorrow I can finish this up.
