Today my mom and dad stopped to collect some cement blocks from the farm for a project that they have going on and while they were here they dropped off a rain gauge for me. Mom called it an early birthday present and it is so cute. I have for a long time had a collection of black and white cows in my kitchen. At one time I had a lot of them but right now I am displaying only a few. So the black and white cow on the rain gauge is similar to many others that I have. Isn't it cute?
Speaking of rain, we did have a nice downpour of at least a half inch of much needed rain. I was even glad to give up on the mowing once the rain got started. Tomorrow will be soon enough to get back at it.
