All I can say about this weather is that it's so good that we will eventually be punished by the weather gods - probably with hail and locusts. Mind you, the blackfiles are out and I was buzzed by a mosquito while we were walking in the woods today. That was as we were passing one of the last remaining patches of snow. In this country the seasons trample each other underfoot in their hurry to get started. Spring doesn't unfold gently, it grabs you by the throat and leaves you breathless with the shock of warm temperatures.
Doc's present from Ohio was a fly mask with bubble-like eye covers and today the woman put it on him. Doc is an unusually itchy horse and spends much of the summer rubbing on trees and trying to scratch his eyes on fences. He went in the barn to be groomed and when he came out, he was sporting his new gift. TJ rushed forward to meet him and then spun and ran when he saw the "new" Doc with green plaid eye pods. Doc of course was oblivious and just carried on but TJ snorted and ran around him in circles, sneaking up behind and deciding that he looked normal from that angle and then catching a glimpse of his head and coming completely unglued. All in all, it made for a delightful diversion on a fine day.
Our trailer came home from storage which means the woman and Molly will start going off on their adventures and coming back tired and smug. Damn their eyes - by all rights it's MY trailer.
