The back yard is finally tamed and I played fetch with the dogs last night since their toys weren't disappearing in tall grass. Next for the front and digging up the keyhole garden beside the driveway to plant some late sweet potatoes. I have cucumbers coming up from seed and the okra finally got transplanted from pots to the ground last week (and I ate a couple of fried okra with dinner last night, the first two of the season). Tomatoes have stopped for now but I may put in new plants for fall soon. I got 1 1/3 cases of tomatoes canned so far this year.

The big news down here is that on Tuesday mornings at 6am the Walmart stores are open for seniors and my next door neighbor said that this week the closest store was quite empty. I didn't know they had these hours still, and I have a couple of things that take me to Walmart maybe twice a year, so next week I'll get up early and head over. Our COVID-19 numbers are increasing in Texas so taking advantage of special hours when the stores actually relatively free of people is a good thing. Next to Sam's Club, Walmart has the cheapest Sudafed knockoff in town. This year I've been more careful about taking it before I go out to keep my allergy sneezes under control. YMMV in your state or province, but it's worth checking out.

Dog baths this week. Once a year whether they need it or not. The water is so warm coming out of the hose that I use a lead to keep each one in place and hose and shampoo then rinse. It doesn't mean there will be less dog hair, it will just be cleaner dog hair. :-/

Good luck with the heat applications, Dorothy. That's what I've heard is pretty effective. Shame on R for being so lazy about that sofa at work!
