Busy and Behind!

Gary came up on Monday bringing his RV in preparation for when they come back on the 6th. He doesn't have a good place to do maintenance on his RV at home and we are set up for it quite well so his purpose in coming was getting it washed and waxed and making sure everything was clean and in tip top condition.
Also if you know Gary he is a high energy guy and believes fully in filling up every minute of every day. Yesterday was a prime example of that. He was up at 6:00 am waiting for me to ride bikes so I quickly got around and off we went. I was getting a blood draw at 7:30 so we went only to the trestle bridge and back. 5 miles. I had promised a biscuit and sausage gravy breakfast so after my blood draw I came home and put that together. We all three enjoyed that and then the guys were off to the golf course. I forgot to mention that when I was fixing breakfast he was working on the last bit of waxing his RV. They played golf. I rested. They came home for lunch and Butch fixed grilled ham and cheese sandwiches since I was not hungry and it is one of the very few meals Butch can fix. Gary then finished the waxing job and started cleaning the inside and when he finished they decided to return to the golf course.
They returned in time to get ready for trivia night. I had asked Gary to stay for it because we benefit from having a younger mind amongst us. It was a great time and I think Gary enjoyed it as much as I do. And it was a surprise when Jason showed up to join us too. The McDugan team came in 2nd! And this was after two prior weeks of losses.
After trivia, the guys all three decided to go to the casino. I stayed home gladly. They weren't out there long. When they returned they had their nightly cribbage games where they growl at each other.
And there you have a day with Gary!

This morning Gary and I walked the trail instead of riding and then he headed home.

There is always time for photos. We have a wren in one of our two wren houses. The one by the back door is occupied by Mr. Wren. This is how it works. The male makes a nest and then he calls in the ladies to look it over and decide if it meets with their approval. If they say yes then they will be "married". So far the one on the tree has been looked at, but no takers. The lighting was not good for this picture of Mr. Wren but it is a decent silhouette.

My setting on the camera was changed while riding in my bike bag or this shot of Woody Pecker would be crisper.

 Beautiful double rainbow last night. I was too close to get the entire arch but it was spectacular sight.
Gary and Susan's RV parked next to ours. We didn't get the storms they had around us but the lighting was extraordinary

Here's Woody!
