I saw the following comment on my last entry, and figured I'd better respond. " WHAT???? No daily update???? What's up? Anne

For one thing, my dear Anne and other readers, the rain is so interspersed throughout the day I can't ride my horse; this eliminates one of my favorite subjects.
For another, Cliff and I are trying to sell a couple more tractors on Craigslist and Yesterday's Tractors. This has consumed some of my Internet time.
Then there's this: Cliff's Kansas brother's wife has attempted, for the last three years, to keep him from coming here in July to meet with all his siblings. Although he's had to leave her at home, he's made the trip alone because it's hard to get all of them together... what with him in southern Kansas and the sister in Wisconsin. Truthfully, we've not been disappointed that he didn't bring his wife; because we're all a bit below her standards.
So this year he called months early and said they were leaving on their vacation July 4. I wonder whose idea that was?
No problem, I said. We'll have our family get-together either the weekend before or the weekend after.
We checked with Don, and he said the weekend before would be fine. We scheduled the little reunion for July 1, and everyone made their arrangements.
When Cliff and I went to Don's a couple of weeks ago, his wife asked, "Now when are you having everybody there?"
"July 1, Sunday," I told her. And she nodded, as though that would work.
So today Cliff gets the phone call. Suddenly they're leaving June 30. Reservations have been made and cannot be changed. I now realize she was confirming the date of our family get-together so she'd be sure and throw a monkey-wrench in it.
And that, my dear Anne, is why I didn't post today. Because I hate it when I vent.
Of course, you can always check my Blogger site for Wordless Wednesday. It's a hoot today.
