Yes, friends it is raining again, and again, and again.

See KEOSAUQUA that is where we live, three blocks from the Des Moines River, UPHILL, thank pugness!!!!

Here are some pictures of the river Mom took this morning on her way to work.

 See the marker from the floods in the past, the park beside the River.
 There are signs all along the river, for the canoe races that we hold yearly....
 Bridge coming into town, it is only a few years old.  The river was moving fast this morning.
Mom thought this corner in our town is pretty.

 Two sleepy visitors we had Friday night and Saturday....later they helped work in the yard, and never complained.  Gussie of course made sure they were looking at the camera correctly.
 This little sweetie came by to see us on Sunday, she is scared of us.  One day Mom said she will like us.
This is her big brother.  We wonder just what he is thinking

Have a great I paddle away.......Stella Rose

  8. High Water is SCARY.... stay outta it...

  9. Hopefully no flood waters will reach your house. Ghostwriter crosses a bridge over a creek on her way to work. The creek has been pretty high lately from all the rain we've had.

    We enjoyed seeing pictures of your little kiddos!

  10. Get your life jackets ready just in case, guys!

  14. Looks like it's flooded pretty much a lot in previous years, wow. Crossing my paws that you don't have that happen again.

  15. Mama says to please send some of the rain over to us if you can....we are really short on water!!!
