We're a summer haven,,,and then there were four...

Let's get this over with, quick like a bandaid being pulled away.  My darling Speedbump is gone, soon after my last posting the cancer took her apetite and we made the hardest decision a pet owner ever makes.  I was with her, in her ear until her last sweet breath.  I still miss her; she was and always will be my darlin.  And so, now we are a four dog house; really it feels like two and one/half because Charlie is my only big one left.  He is my keeper still.


Below, if you look in the middle of the heavy laden peach tree you'll see a turkey momma and a baby or two.  These ladies have taken to mornings under the peach tree and a few blue berries on the side.  I'll let them have it, why not!!  The Japanese beatles have taken two trees worth, so far, of peaches.  I made the mistake of following the directions on the pesticide spray and I stopped spraying 21 days before harvest.  Well, that worked out just "peachy" for them.  haha!  I did get one batch of white peach jam and hope to salvage one batch from the tree you see here.  We'll see...


I hate this being a sad news Sarah everytime I post something.  I'll try to keep the camera handy and do better.  I just don't do as well as I should, but I wanted to have closure.  I still think of you all, you're my friends in a real way, I'm just that crazy friend that blows through when she feels drama I guess and needs to unload.  Thanks for being there for me.  As always, I and we do pray for you blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ, from the holler...
p.s. excuse the poor gramar, I didn't have JP proof this one,,hehe

we are so very sorry for your loss. We know how special Speedbump was to you. It is never easy to say farewell to a beloved friend, furry or not. Too bad about the peaches - those Japanese beetles can do a number on vegetation. Soft woos and gentle hugs from us.

Woos - Ciara and Lightning and Mom

I am so very sorry to read about the loss of your beloved Speedbump. Our furbabies have a way of grabbing ahold of our hearts and never letting go.

Praying for comfort and peace for you and your family!
