Slipping and sliding

After two days of 40ยบ weather, the snow has mostly melted. Now we are left with deep "orange gumbo" mud. My boots were so firmly mired into the goo that I nearly lost one in the horse corral tonight. I'm sure there were a few "secret ingredients" in that sticky mud... I don't want to know.

(That reminds me of the spring we lived in Michigan and had the Mother's Day Flood that washed away the newly planted seeds in my garden. E went out to check on the state of the mud a week later. Eventually I heard a noise and went to investigate. He was firmly stuck and couldn't get back to firm ground! I had to pull him out - minus his shoe. If I tried that nowadays his six-foot frame would pull me in!)

Till next time...
