After doing my work, I walked over to the river side of the park (Lake Isabella Park is bordered by the lake on one side and the Little Miami River on the other) and the rain from last night has done a number on the water level.
And I found what will now be my favorite tree. I so love sycamores...they get so ginormous. We have one in the back yard and it's growing so fast, you can almost see it get taller as you watch it.
While standing under the sycamore, I was straddling a small puddle about a foot from the water's edge.
In the course of 5 minutes, the puddle was three feet across. Time to go, I think.
I am starting to recognize the ducks at the lake by sight. The white/gray one on the left is always there. I wonder who his mama got with to make him that color? Mallards...they are so cheap and easy. They will hybridize with just about anything.
This is usually accessible by foot, but today I would have needed a dinghy.
Back in the spring, I found two dogs along the road. I finally tracked down the owner (who didn't even know they were gone) and took them back. This woman was so lacking in character. And look where she lives! It may not look it, but this house, in this neighborhood, is easily worth $1 million. You'd think they could afford a fence. And they own minivans...ugg.
The dogs were wearing invisible fence collars, but that doesn't seem to be stopping them. A week after I took them back, I saw a flyer dated 3 months prior, asking if anyone had seen the dogs. Escaping is not a new thing for these guys.
I drive by occasionally to see if the dogs are out (they seem to live in doghouses in the back yard). They were sweet little guys...one was a yellow lab and the other was a beagle/shep/mutt. Flip and McGee. Cute names for cute dogs.
I am not one to be prejudiced against anyone, but I find it hard to think nice thoughts about this pampered, wimpy woman. She didn't say thank you, but shook my hand, and I have felt more personality in dead fish.
We live in a nice neighborhood, with VERY nice neighborhoods around us, and I see affluent people all the time around here doing stupid things. I guess it goes to show you that money can't buy smarts.
Okay, enough of my ranting about dumb, insensitive dogs owners.
What a cute car. Too bad they ruined it with that "W" sticker.
