It was a quiet day around here. Terry took the tire off the hay trailer, picked up Pete, and went to Milbank for a replacement.

I stayed home to do housework. It doesn't get anymore exciting than that, does it? I found grease ants on the bathroom counter under the Water Pik. I was going to spray for ants, but the squirt bottle doesn't work. I asked Terry to get me new bottle in Milbank, but he forgot.

I know there is dust in my camera, so I tried to clean it. Not an easy job and probably not recommended, but instructions can be found on the 'Net. I called Harold's Camera in Sioux Falls and was told that it would take a week for them to get around to working on my camera. I visited with the gal there, and she said that it's usually the sensors that get dirty and they are very sensitive. Actually, I think there's a dirt inside the lenses. It's possible to take them apart, BUT Terry and I both tried and couldn't get them apart (and we didn't want to wreck something....). I cleaned whatever I could and the spots in the lake pictures are now in different places than they used to be.

This evening I hiked over to Lake Alice, walking through the tall grass, weeds, and thistles. The mosquitoes weren't too bad at all. However, I messed around quite awhile and talked on the phone, so it got late. I called Terry and had him come to get me with a 4-wheeler. We met at the choke cherry bush on top of the hill.

 The white flowers are yarrow. There were some other white bell-like flowers, too, but I didn't get a good picture of them. And then a picture of those rare creatures called deer. I saw several of them. Last week there was an ad in the Watertown paper for the job of picking up roadkill deer in a 3-4 county area. That, I thought, would be an easy job, because there are so few deer around that the GF&P will be issuing 10,000 fewer hunting licenses this fall. OK, so I was being sarcastic, but I don't know why the GF&P thinks there are so few deer.
