Good Friday

Tomorrow's Good Friday. We used to get it as a holiday but for some reason my company now chose not to observe it.
I had planned to rise early tomorrow and put my worktime in so that I could have time tomorrow afternoon to work in my garden. But the weatherman is saying that things could get bad so I guess it's one of those wait and see days.
I like getting home before dark because it usually leaves time to get some walking in. Today the dogs and I got in a good walk. They get so excited when I pick up my walking stick which I hang horizontally on a couple of nails on the side of the deck. They understand that I'm not going to the shed for a tool, or to the chicken box to fetch the eggs. Walking stick = walk. They do the math.
I read a story in Forbes Magazine today about a man that raised and trained Labrador Retrievers. Each dog has superbly trained to fetch birds. The dogs are usually three years old before they are ready to sell. These dogs bring $10,000 to $12,000. I know that is a lot of money but here's the thing. I get way too attached to animals. If I kept a dog for three years, I don't think I could part with it. Not for money. You can read the story online by clicking here.
It is a fascinating story but I'd wind up with a yard full of Labs that I would never sell.
I hope the weatherman is off the mark and I can put my squash and cucumbers in the ground tomorrow.
Happy Good Friday.
