Rain is good, but Hermina is a wench!

So we desperately have needed rain, that is true, we just weren't expecting it to be delivered to us by Hermina.  I don't know exactly how much rain we got because I never like getting my shoes muddy to go look at the rain gauge thing.  I assume that makes me not a farmer being that rain gauges and the like should be on top of any good farmer's radar.  Not that rain isn't top on my radar, it's just that rain gauges aren't.  Now shoes, they are on my radar... 

Besides, I don't have to worry about reading the rain gauge when all I have to do is see what my neighbor Dottie reported on facebook.  So - I will go with what Dottie says:  13.22 inches.  Can you believe it?!

I have already given far too much attention to Hermina, as she doesn't deserve the limelight on my very prestigious Lavender Chick stage.   We are so over her, that Hermina.  Ever since she planned her rendezvous over Hummingbird Farms, our gentle giant Poncho has been missing.  Like I said, Hermina is a wench. 

Poncho come home!

Oh this kills me. Yes it is me, your stalking neighbor that you have never met. I love dogs and am sick for you. Have you called the city and the SPCA and also, do you know Kellie Allen of Kellie's Doggie Country Resort or something like that? She is a doll and lots of times people bring dogs that they find to her, of call her. Maybe you are closer to Johnson City than Fbg. and none of this applies, but I am going to say a prayer and keep my fingers crossed for you.Email me if I can help in any way.

I hope Poncho just got disoriented in the rain and wind and finds his way home soon!

Oh, Poncho! Your sweet boy. I'm sure he was guarding something important from the crazy weather and got a little lost. I hope he comes home soon, Debi!

Please let us know if you find Poncho! I just found your blog and website and love it. My daughter and I (we'll let my husband come with us) plan to visit your farm in spring. We'd love to see the lavender in bloom.
