First day of summer washed away

What in the world?
What in the world?" said Jiny Denison, 84, as she woke up on a rainy day to find 25 bright spots on her front lawn near the corner of Sherwood and Webb Place in Spokane, Wa. A friend had the pink flamingos sent as part of a NW Spokane Young Life fund raiser that sends students to summer camps. A note congratulated Denison "you been Flocked" and suggests sending the birds onto another victim. Denison has two family in mind, one a doctor and the other a lawyer.

It's officially the first day of summer, yes, you may stop laughing now. It's been one of the most rainy springs on record and it just doesn't seem to let up. Actually, it's raining so much today that the city's brand new pools are once again closed - how disappointing is that? Depending on which forecast you look at or listen to, some clearing is supposed to come our way Tuesday and we may even get some sunshine by Wednesday.

The South Perry Blog would like to know how you cope with the rain? How's the yard doing? Have ducks moved in yet? Are the tomatoes holding up? What are some of the things you usually do in mid- to late June that you've put off?
