In Other News...

They really ARE cleaning our ponds!!

Yesterday Ruby and I got to go to our ponds. (WOO HOO!! YAY! YAY!!)  When we got there, we saw this big tractor thingy with little boats wwwaaaaayyyy up in the air so no one could use 'em, I guess cuz it was Sunday. 

Then we saw three HUGE dumpsters for them to put all that lettuce stuff in!!

THEN we saw one of our ponds that's starting to get cleaned. We still didn't get to go swimming in our pond cuz the water was all murky from whatever they're doing there.

How cool is that?!  We like it when the humans clean up the mess that they made.

THEN we got to go wading at our wading spot.  The water was all clear and cool.   

We were ready for a fun day!!

Cool equipment - those big cranes around here hoist up lots of expensive equipment at night and over the weekends to protect them from theft.

Great that they are cleaning the pond for you. Hope you get to use it soon.

We hope Gizmo is doing OK. Please give him a snooter smoochie from the Momster.

You will be so pleased to have your pond back nice and clean:)

Love the new header and colours. The quote is one of my favourites. It's generally credited to Cheryl Zuccaro, but I don't know who she is.

Best wishes to Gizmo, I hope he gets to go to the pond too:)

What a great pond. We have a pond that we walk by but Mom says "NO" to swimming in it. I say that is okay, because I don't like swimming anyway. We hope the get the bigger pond all cleaned up so you can enjoy it more. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

That is SO super awesome that they're cleaning that out so you'll have a nice clear pond to swim in. I still thinks it's awful dangerous to get wet - no matter how clean the water is. But I'm awfully glad you had fun!
