We're Doomed!!!

After a rather uneventful day of tennis and then work, I came home to some front porch time. It was a little on the cool side, but that could be said about every day since last August. Shortly after heading out front my buddy Brady came out of the front door of his house and ran across the cul-de-sac. We played a little hide and seek, which really isn't much of an adventure because Brady always hides in the same place and giggles when you start to close in on his location. What was most disconcerting about the evening was Brady's declaration that there are fire ants in the area, and they are bigger than our houses. I have first hand experience with fire ants having lived in the south, and if those things are the size of a two story house with an attached three car garage we are in some serious trouble here! I mean, just imagine the size of the anthills that are about to emerge in our yards. We may have to abandon the neighborhood and we'll all move in with Brady's grandparents in Boise. I hope that there aren't any fire ants there.

After our porch outing we came in for another of Kay's gourmet dinners. Tonight had an Asian flair, with an oriental slaw salad and Cantonese barbecue buns. They're the type of things that you get at a Dim Sum restaurant. It was all very good. Its now just about time to settle in for a long winter's nap. Well...maybe not winter, but tomorrow is going to be another chilly and showery day for early to mid June. Today we had another quarter inch of rain, and the temperature made it to the middle 60s. Tomorrow will probably be cooler, maybe not even reaching 60 degrees. It will all be turning around by the weekend though as the sun will be shining and the temperatures soaring, into the 70s Saturday and 80s on Sunday. I can't wait!
