On Saturday I had a backyard pool party at my house. You know when I get to flood my yard so the grass grows green. I called up Bert and asked him to come over and to bring his siblings. I swear he was over to my house before I hung up the phone. When he got there I told him my momma had a surprise for us, for me and him.
And here it is a GIANT tennis ball!!!!!
For those of you who know my pal Bert know that he is not allowed to have tennis balls, something about swallowing them and then having to have surgery (like 87 times now). So the only ball Bert can play with is this red ball. He can't break it open and swallow it. Oh but how my pal LOVES tennis balls (me too). So momma found this big old tennis ball that the advertisement said was "Indestructible". 'Perfect' she thought.
I gave it a good shake. So far so good.
Momma tossed the ball out into my backyard pool and Bert and I would chase it. So so so much fun!
It even floats in water.
Then 87 seconds later we put a hole in Wilson. Giant tennis ball was no match for us.
Yep 87 seconds, one of the best 87 seconds of our lives. And you know what???? Flat tennis ball is almost as fun as a tennis ball with out a hole in it.

Last time I told you about my back yard pool and how momma and I flood our yard every 7 1/2 days someone asked "WHAT?" I forgot to answer that question. So here is the answer. We use flood irrigation to water our yard. That means there is a ditch (ours is covered and is a big pipe under ground). At the back of the yard we have a gate that we open up and the water flows into my yard. Several of our neighbors do the same thing. Each person pays for shares and depending on how many shares you pay for determines how long you get the water on you day. We get 5 hours and 15 minutes. Depending on water flow momma can get our yard flooded in about 2 to 3 hours. When we are done we close our gate and open the main gate to flow down to our neighbor to use.
