This is Mikey, one of our resident raccoons.
Yesterday our daughter and son-in-law came over for Labor Day BBQ. And they brought with them their new puppy. It is a little female goldendoodle. She is 10 weeks old and just darling. They named her Lucy. My little dog, Angie, was just ecstatic to have another canine around. The cats were more or less disgusted by all the attention being paid to a dog.
That horrible man in the White House is ending the DACA program unless Congress passes legislation to make it a permanent program. Congress (Republicans) isn't exactly known for getting things done. So the DACA recipients' lives are thrown into limbo. And the rubble pile grows.
I've started on my next quilt top. It will be another scrap quilt. I will post photos soon.
I'm reading a very interesting book, Shattered by Jonathan Allen. It is about why Hillary Clinton lost the election. I was as stunned as anyone by the loss and have honestly wondered how on earth it happened. I'm only about 1/4 of the way through it and it is making more sense to me. I will write a review when I finish it.
Things are slowly returning to normal around OakMeadows. All the water is gone. Thee grocery store is open albeit on reduced hours. And best of all the Whataburger drive through is open. There are still some road closures but alternate routes are open. My thoughts are with the people in Florida who are facing Hurricane Irma.
