Joy is going to the farm to supervise the rice harvest.
Chano's fever/infection is improving, but not enough for him to go with Joy.
Good news of the day: Ruby came in first in the achievement tests at her school
Bad news of the day: the old man who usually bathes the dogs is also busy at the farm, so to my horrors the outdoor watch dogs all are full of ticks: so it's up to me: Three bathed and two to go.
Guess I'll have to invest in some Sargent's to keep them coming back. It costs a fortune, and it's a chemical, but the herbal anti flea/tick powder doesn't keep the ticks out of their ears...yuck.
