We now have a flag pole…and if Karl has his way, we’ll have 3 by the end of the week. I’ve been insisting he not work in thunderstorms and as you should know, we’re supposed to get soaked today & tomorrow! Which is a great thing for all the new plants that have been donated and seeking homes on the grounds as well as for those who have been newly planted. If you see Sue, be sure to thank her for rescuing the pansies by the bird feeder- they desperately needed to be re-located to a “partial sun” area.
Speaking of, soon you’ll be seeing double by the bird feeder as well- yes, another feeder has been donated- and Karl has promised to pick up more seed for the blue jay that’s been nearly fearless in hanging around last Saturday keeping Sue & I company on that humid morning. Not only are we helping dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs, we’re also supporting local wildlife! So bring your camera next time you come!
What? You can’t see the new pictures? Sadly, neither can I. My laptop crashed and while I have the pictures on my external hard drive (well worth the investment, by the way!!!), the laptop is still being too tempermental to be useful. But check this weekend as I’m having a technology handy friend over this week- thank goodness for tech people!
Or, even better, stop by the Humane Society- like Sue, I’m sure you’ve forgotten to fill out your time card a few times and you could always stroll through the Adoption Office and check on the ongoing progress there. Don’t forget to peek in on the Adoption kennel process- Karl had a little “oops” and you’ll notice the paint is peeling but that should be fixed by Wednesday as long as everything cures properly in this humididty.
There’s a rumor going around a big-wig is stopping in to peruse the grounds this week so when you stop by if you see something un-tidy, please take a moment to make it right. We all appreciate it, even when its just us volunteers!!!
The progress we’ve made is wonderful but don’t forget there’s always more to do! Yes, always! But don’t be intimidated by our goals, everyday it just takes a few steps towards the bigger picture and we’ll get there sooner than you think : )
I’ll do my best to get everything updated soon, please check back with us again after the weekend for fresh pictures and updates from Sue & Karl!!
