Urgh! We were/are(?) all set to go to the beach this morning but the water quality that was last taken stated unsafe!!
I hate our Lake and it’s randomly changing E.coli levels. There were NO water quality samples taken since last week and it says right on the site that the levels are only good for that day.
….maybe I’ll create my own testing kit
*just because we are so cute
FYI for those of you that don’t know FEEDING WATERFOWL INCREASES (and is in most cases responsible *other than agricultural runoff*) E.COLI BACTERIA IN OUR WATER SYSTEMS!
So leave your old crusty bread, seeds and other treats at home! ….or I may yell at you because I love swimming
I probably wouldn’t yell at you, but I may do like I did on Sunday and secretly stalk you all the while judging you and your every action.
There was a guy that had a small dog in his car and he left it in there while he walked passed Leah and me stretching on the grass and proceeded to go into the grocery store.
I said “Oh great! now I have to wait” she said “why to yell at him?” I replied, “no, I don’t want to be an ignorant crazy person, I’m just now committed to the well being of that animal” – we waited almost 25 mins and just as we were coming up with a plan to make an annoucement in the store (thanks Leah) alerting the owner, he appeared. We watched him walk to his car and made sure the pup was A.OK.
I never said anything – why?
The bottom line is YOU NEVER KNOW! was 30 mins a long time to leave a dog in the car YES! would it have been better if he didn’t do that? YES! but maybe he was out walking his dog and his wife called and asked him to get some stuff. He had all four of the windows down a bit and there was a nice breeze and the dog was lying down sleeping the whole time – fine.
I found this great article about leaving your dog in the car and I feel like it reflects my personal views on the subject perfectly. I am happy that we waited just in case that scenario did go wrong but I didn’t feel the need to choose being right over kindness and yell at a person who’s story I knew nothing of. I only stayed for my own beliefs – not to adjust his
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
1. would you go swimming anyway??
I most likely will go to the beach because Logan has been begging me….he doesn’t really go into the water anyway, so we can just play in the sand.
2. would you have said something to that guy??
3. would you have stayed like we did??
As much as we never played Judge, Jury and Executioner on that man we did decide that it was our responsibility to remain there, just in case
