A day off

After a really  busy couple of weeks at a time that is usually "winddown time", I decided I deserved a day off.
 
Of course, there are some things that do not respect a day off, like Humphrey's piles of poop.
 
 
But never mind, how can you hold that against him?
 
 
 
Mrs RC and I went for a bike ride along the coast and had a picnic.  It was amazingly hot yesterday, but sitting up here we got a gorgeous sea breeze.
 
There was only one down side to our little trip.  Part of the coast is given over to a marshy creek - not a large area, but it has plenty of wildlife and it is really popular with dog walkers.
 
Pretty, huh?
 
 

 
But what about the truck?
 
 
Nice, eh?  There is a sewage plant a little way up stream, and guess where the excess goes if there is a over flow...
 
Anyway, back home, it was time to get the barbie going...
 

 
My best wings yet - they had been marinading all day, and I put them in after I had cooked the sausages and burgers, shutting the lid and letting them cook away, turning them from time to time.
 
And while we sat there, with the radio going, we heard the news about the new Prince!  Excellent news!  God Save the King, and all that!

Looks like a delightful day off. Beautiful views, too. Poor Humphrey..."How can you hold it against him?" How can he hold it in?! Saw the news about the new prince. Funny thing...William and Kate were married on my DIL b'day and the little prince was born on my son's b'day. They're so excited to share such momentous dates with the Royal Couple, er, family now!

It must be fun to share dates like that - you can go places and people will be partying on your birthday! :-)

Good day all around! Well, except maybe the sewage overflow thing. The wings look yummy!

Yes! Congrats on the baby Prince! Exciting news over here too!
Well deserved day off it seems. Thanks for spending some of it with us. I've been missing Humphrey's poop stories. Fun pic of him! And the coast and food pics aren't too shabby either!

Hopefully you'll be done with the poop duty soon!

Yep, you've got to forgive Humphrey for his pooping. It's got to be done!

Nice that you got a day off on such a summery, beautiful day.

The wings look delicious!

Abby - The wings were very yummy...

ShadowRun300 - I will have to do another poop story soon, then :-)

Riot Kitty - Hm, I get the feeling that I will be clearing poop for some time to come...

Terri - Yes, we would worry if he stopped pooping...
