The 4th of July is near, which means it's time for our annual Miller campout at Lake MacBride near Iowa City. It's a great park. The campground has lots of big shade trees, they have a nice little beach, and boat rentals. They'll shoot fireworks off near the beach, which is where we'll sit and watch them. The weather here has improved a bunch in the last couple of days and it's supposed to last through the week. Should be another great time.

Madeline broke her right fore arm on Saturday. At first we didn't think it was broken. She didn't sleep well Saturday night because of it, so Angie took her to the clinic for xrays. She's got a crack in her bone. They put a hot pink cast on it today.

Abby is at Catholic Youth Camp this week. I dropped her off there yesterday. She'll have great weather and always makes lots of new friends. We miss her already.

I've been in a photographic slump lately. Haven't done much shooting, and haven't really been seeing much to shoot; which is why you see so much damn corn here. I hope it passes soon.

This weekend is Cambridge Jubilee weekend here in Cambridge. Happens every June. Abby is at a teen dance right now and has been planning a bonfire out back for after the dance. It's raining though, so I doubt it will happen. Tomorrow is the parade and the truck pull.

I need to clean and fix my gutters. I need to rent a lift to do it. I've been waiting several weeks for a dry weekend to do it. Still waiting. Meanwhile the maple trees growing in my gutters keep growing.

Casanova's living up to his name.

The rabbits are eating my peas. I still haven't planted anything else. Is it too late?
