Another Open House

We have another open house this Saturday, and we'll have to take the dog and the new kitten to a friend's home. I think we've had about three open houses now. At the first one, we took two dogs to our friend's house; at the next one our oldest dog, little Bryn, the Corgi, had been put to sleep so we had only one dog who enjoyed the back yard again; and and now at this one we have our new kitten, which we got from the SPCA about a month ago. (I don't think she's going to be happy in the crate.)  Oh, yes. I wonder about the future...

Tropical Storm Colin

TS Colin was predicted to cross over us (central Florida), but I see it's shifted way north (over the Panhandle), and we won't be getting as much rain as predicted earlier. 

(Thanks for the advisory, Lloyd.)

Update (6-7-16): Colin's gone, and we got at least three inches of rain as it passed by.
