Does a bear sh*t in...

... my yard?

According to me, yes. But others are skeptical.

So you tell me, is this bear poop or not?

Pam is the Worst Blogger Ever

Pam is not keeping up on the blog so Jill is posting to keep people up to date.
Today, Fred fished and Sherry cleaned.
Then, Fred watched TV and Sherry sat in one of the lawn chairs and watched the river for a while.

finally an update...

so Jill keeps moaning because I haven't updated the blog. But seriously, it's boring around here.

Sher cleans and goes to garden club. Fred fishes and drinks coffee.

There's been some summer planting going on. I'll try to get some pictures to post.

Otherwise, there's just not much action.

in case there's anyone out there...

yes, the river is coming up. BUT, should just be in the yard, not the house.
I called Fred and Sher yesterday to see if they were even moving stuff up off the basement floor, but they were both out. So, I guess they weren't as apprehensive as most of the other people in town.

Maybe we'll try this bloggy business for F&S again this summer... we'll see. As you know, I'm pretty lazy.

Just as I suspected

I stopped at F&S's on Friday for some exciting news. You'll never guess- Fred went fishing, Sher cleaned, and they had fish and salad for supper. Let the good times roll!

oh well, I guess familiarity breeds comfort... wait, that's not right.

In lieu of exciting activities, here's some exciting pictures.

Nice close-up

There were a whole bunch of these, but they died before I got the picture

Produce section of the SuperValue is getting a good start

I'm hoping you can click on this and it'll get bigger.  (I tried, but it still doesn't work)

New blog???

Since the flood business has been taken care of, I clearly have not blogged. So I'm thinking of switching this to the "What did Fred and Sher do now" blog. I'll eventually get around to changing the name, but figured I'd make sure that they do enough interesting stuff to make this worth it before I went to the effort.

My concern is that every post will be as follows:
Fred went fishing. Sher cleaned something. They ate fish and salad for supper.
Seriously, that covers most days.

But I'll give it a try. (Oh, and don't forget, I am lazy and will not get around to it a lot. I'm going to work on Sher to get her to do some updating on her own. As you may remember for her previous posts, she's a hoot.)

Well, here we go,

To catch everyone up on the spring events, any day that it was nice, Fred fished and when it wasn't nice, he puttered around in the basement putting up shelves, rearranging his screwdrivers, etc. Mix that in with coffee twice a day, and it's a pretty full schedule.
Sher did these things in order of time spent; cleaned, talked on the phone, went for walks, and worked. I swear Sher cleans the rest of the family drinks (or drank depending on their wagon status.)

More recently they've been a little more interesting. Last Sunday and Monday (Memorial Day), they were in Elkader. Even though it's a bit late for mushrooms Fred found about 3 gallons anyway. A couple were Very big, one was almost a foot tall. Sher and Billie did the cemetery walk with lovely flowers from Julie's shop. (I missed it as that was on Sunday, and I didn't get there until Monday.) Fred fried fish and quite a few people showed up, but we did miss those who weren't there.

The rest of this week has been the standard, although Sher only worked 2 days because some ones' wallpaper didn't arrive on time and Fred fished a bit less because 'the river's screwed up'.

I don't have many good pictures of Fred and Sher stuff, but I do have some good bird pictures from the farm.

This is Fred's new Oriole feeder.

Nuthatch? That's what I always think they are. At the Farm.

The last major bit is done! Sher's kitchen floor has been installed!
The floor guy- Tim Duffy - is coming back today to do another coat of sealer and then put in a couple thresholds and trim bits.
I think after that the only thing that's left will be the bottom cabinet trim in the kitchen!
AND Sher's in Hawaii with her sister so you all get to see these before she does!
So, here's some less than stellar pictures.
