Happy Sunday to Efurryone


Today is the running of the 91st Indianapolis 500. Maw grew up in Indy. During the entire month of May, everything is checkerboard black/white. Everything centers around the Indy 500. All the news is about the 500. All advertisements include something about the 500.

One of the coolest things this year is that there are 3 women racing. Also, Dr. McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) from Grey's Anatomy is driving the Pace Car!!! He is a co-owner of Vision Racing which has 4 cars running in today's race. It's a huge honor to be the Pace Car driver!!

In other news, it's been raining a lot here and we are very grateful. Our main reservoir that supplies water for our county is finally full, but the backup lake is still 10 feet low because it is east of here and hasn't been getting as much rainfall over it's watershed area. We know many other parts of the country desperately need rain and we hope you start getting some very soon. We know very well what it's like to live in an extreme drought.

Have a great day!

Luf, Us

Mom says in all the time she lived there, Maw, she never ever saw the Indy 500. But she remembers that everyone starts driving like they're IN the Indy 500 around that time.

We hope your backup lake gets filled up, as well as the main reservoir ...

Oh we're having rain. Since yesterday. And it will continue through tomorrow. Personally, I don't care but the woman gets very down if she gets too deprived of sunshine.

You are right about the renovations. Those two painted the lounge (this, after that big dining room project!) and today we got a new floor. This will be the last of the work, though... for awhile.

Ernest and I hope you get more rain for the backup lake. The forty paws need a lot of water!

I didn't know Maw was from Indy! Cool beans!
And rain is good! Rain is great!
We had the tenth driest May on record, until last Thursday & Friday.
We got over 3" of rain in 36 hours! Yippeeeee!
The past two summers here were drought-like, and killed my big beautiful elm tree, so I for one say YAY to rain!
