Interesting day

 The day started out bright and sunny. 1 load of laundry done and hanging. The 2nd load
almost done, and then it started to rain in spits and spurts. The sun came out and I collected 
the girls morning contribution. We try to keep our nests clean and therefore the eggs clean.
 Around 3ish the skies turned black, thunder and lightning rolled in, and it started to pour.
As we were relaxing listening to the heavy rain on the metal roof we heard a strange sound.
We go to the front door and see this. Hail the size of shooting marbles...
My tomatoes were not happy, but they seem alright a couple of hours later.






This is scary stuff!!

Working on pig fence









 Valery and I picked up cedar posts yesterday.
Between the 4 of us, we got posts in and fence up.
Now to put up the house...

 Jerry had a 'butterfly' that would not leave him alone!



 Anyone know what kind of bug this is?
I snaps and clicks to pop itself around, and it flies.
I found it! It is a good bug!!
