And some more. Rain.

20150531_132806 Though we haven’t had measurable rain in more than 24 hours, the rain until then during the past week has been excessive.  Oklahoma has had a record breaking 20150531_141132amount of rain for May and flooding has been widespread.  The ground is saturated and Friday, our septic system showed the first signs of problems.  We went into water saving mode for a couple of days until Sunday morning when we decided it was time to check with a load of laundry.  Bad move.  Backups appeared in all three bathrooms and Steve had to change his plans for the day.  Could be worse – could be raining. 20150530_145108Patty’s arena flooded on Friday just as it was drying out from its flooding on Sunday morning.  No Party Lesson on Saturday.  Very sad face.  Splash says no worries mate – I can stand around eating grass all day and stomp in the mud without the need for a ride. 20150531_141035We did manage a party lunch at Pink House with our horsey friends – Mary, Nancy, Patty, Mallory, Meredith, Beverly, Jennifer, Michelle, Ashlyn, and the twins.  Yummy and fun.  Then Meredith, Jennifer, and Ashlyn joined us to visit Geronimo. 20150530_150322Ivy has been messing with Gman’s face and mouth and discovered that Geronimo has lost one of his front teeth.  This is not normal and we are worried about his future orthodontic requirements.  Cross fingers his regular teeth come in nice and straight.  Anyone have experience with this problem? 20150531_151157Sunday was still gray but no more rain – YAY.  We went back out to Angie’s to play with the ponies and Nancy brought her granddaughter out to meet baby horses and black cats.  And to play in mud puddles.  She is a pro.  The girls rode Charles and Dash to help Angie get them into shape for a 4 day trail ride in June.  Charles is a really pretty, green Morgan and Dash is a former barrel horse.  The girls enjoyed their pony trot through the slop.  Meanwhile, I am pining for a ride myself.  Plan for party lesson next week.  Cross fingers.
