Deep water

The sun shone all day yesterday and it looks like it may do the same today!  Wow!  I went down to the pond knowing that I had my work cut out for me.  I wore my waders and when I got into the pond where I could reach the cage around the overflow pipe, the water was almost to the top on my legs.  That's how much rain we've had.  The two creeks that feed the pond must have really been running.  At any rate, I manage to clear the cage without falling in.  Since I had a meeting to go to I didn't stay to see that the water went down to normal level.  When I got home, however, I walked down to check and could see that it had.  On my way back to the house I noticed a fairly large hole on one side of the path.  I dropped a pebble into it and a lone yellow jacket flew out.  Hmmmm, gasoline time at dusk.  I'll check it today and if that didn't do the trick I'll think of something else.  Do need to buy a new funnel, though.
Well, y'all have a special day and remember:  It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

Boy, I can certainly understand the part about the not remembering! Seems I only forget the important stuff!

Glad you stopped by.

A bit curious. Doesn't every creature have its purpose on this beautiful earth? Should we be the judge of such?
