Glenn applies a coat of paint to a dozen 2x4s that will be used to replace the weathered 1x4s we originally used at the top of our pergola. Photo by Roni.
This is what the new slats are replacing. These boards didn't look much better when we put them on new five years ago. The elements didn't help. Photo by Glenn.
The new slats are installed, and the pergola looks clean and new. Photo by Glenn.
Glenn does some late spring pruning of the evergreen ash tree above Spring's Garden. Photo by Roni.
With the low-hanging branches out of the way, Spring is much easier to see. Her garden is looking as good as it's looked in a while. The fuchsia in the foreground is coming back from the brink. Photo by Glenn.
We visited the Contra Costa County Fair on June 6. Here we are, reflected in the mirror of the carousel. Photo by Roni.

Ben found a hotdog for lunch. He made us hungry. Photo by Roni.
Our search for lunch took us to Big Bad Bubba's BBQ booth or is it Big Bubba's Bad BBQ? where we bought pulled pork sandwiches. Photo by Roni.
Glenn gets ready to dive into his sandwich. He's looking a bit healthier these days since the doctor reduced his medicine. He has gained about 12 pounds since May 1, which greasy food such as this encourages. Photo by Roni.
June 6 was Hispanic Day at the fair, which was recognized with a variety of Mexican entertainers. Photo by Glenn.
Is this goat smiling? Ew, creepy. Photo by Roni.

Nothing beats the heat at the fair like an afternoon ice cream cone. Glenn indulges in a chocolate dipped cone, which quickly melted within minutes of this picture. Photo by Roni.
We returned to the fair in the evening to enjoy the night lights at the carnival. The Ferris wheel looks awesome all lit up. Photo by Glenn.

It's Election Day, and here we are at our polling precinct at Vintage Parkway Elementary School after taking a morning walk on the Big Break Trail to get here. Photo by Glenn.
Roni displays her "I Voted" sticker after casting her ballot on June 8. The stickers were supposedly good for a free coffee from Starbucks Photo by Glenn.
Roni's sister Jacki's cat Lily nurses the remaining four kittens in her litter June 10. We'd had our hearts set on taking home one, perhaps two of these. But days after this photo was taken, all but one of the kittens had died. Photo by Glenn.
One of Lily's kittens, which we were considering adopting, was 16 days old when this photo was shot. It died a few days later. Photo by Roni.

Kittens are cute, of course, but a full-grown cat needs love too. Glenn tries out Lucy, one of the adoptees available June 12 at the Antioch Animal Services department. Photo by Roni.
Time for some random produce pictures. This is a bin of fresh peaches at the Antioch Farmers Market, June 13. June is a great month for peach lovers. Photo by Roni.

This is what we do for fun on our vacation. Roni chats with an East Bay Regional Park District worker at the scene of an Oakley fire we just happened upon on our way home from shopping June 26. Photo by Glenn.
