Trying to set up a slipn'slide like the 1 we have here at home so the kids will have something to do in the terrible heat. It was like 98 degrees. Yes, that is the amazing plantation home that in- laws took 10 years to restore and always has maintenance issues.
The gang, including our dog Jack who would love to live at the farm and chase the cats, groundhogs, skunks, snakes, bunnies...He disappears into the cotton field and we can hear the echo of his bark all over the farm when he's cornered something good. He came back in one evening with a scratch to his nozzle and cut on his ear...I doctored up the wounds and chuckled.
