I don't mean to start out with something sad.
Really it is not sad.
I just miss my Bumble.
I have been thinking about her a lot this week. I don't know why.
I had an appointment to got to the other day and thought...
I would take Zippy for a quick walk.
Then he did this....
Then he had to have a bath. Then....I was late for the appointment.
This is what I see when I walk up the drive.
after working on concrete.
I know it looks as if they don't know who I am,
but maybe they are just getting excited that I am finally home.
Wait....Is she actually growling at me???
Just kidding....she was just playing.
Ha ha ha..
Okay...time for a walk.
Something that I discovered on our walk...
Smudge and Gus have no sense of direction.
One goes East and one goes West.
Come on Gus....this way...
Oh...wait...maybe I should go that way...
Over here....no...over there...
I'm confused..I think that I will just kick back in my chair and relax in the sun.
An interesting thing has been happening.
Zippy has become a birddog.
We have had some really beautiful weather lately and have seen a few
The first time Zippy sniffed one out..I thought it was just luck.
But it has now become a game to him.
He searches the area
with his nose to the ground.
He has flushed (I guess that is the correct term)
10 Grouse so far.
He knows exactly where to find them.
He loves to watch them fly into the air and just stands there
I don't have a picture of the Grouse..because when they fly from
their cover like a cannon ball coming out of a cannon...
I jump into the air and scream. Ha ha..
Well..I don't really scream, but I do jump a bit.
I will keep trying to get a picture. They are fast little creatures.
Or should I say stunning...
I love this chair.
It is hard being a beauty queen. I have a lot of resting and
primping to do. It really makes a girl tired.
When I sit in this chair....all of the others know that I am the queen.
They bow down to my beauty and power.
They do everything that I ask.
Oh brother....It is really getting deep around here.
Hey Eco....Why did the race horse go behind the tree?
I don't know Oracle....Why?
To change his jockeys..
Ha ha ha ha...
Here is another one...Eco, why can't horses dance?
I don't know Oracle.
Because they have two left feet!
Ha ha ha...
I am with Otis....It is really getting deep.
Smudge discovering the small pond at my neighbor's house.
Don't worry....I was stand right there ready to pull her out in case she fell in.
Bulldogs do not swim well...at least most bulldogs.
Smudge enjoyed the mud on the edge.
I have been turning these gold/brown gargoyles into more of a
grey color to match a stone wall.
I think the color looks pretty good.
They had a coat of green and white paint with a brown glaze over them
that I had to brush off and then I stained them grey.
I could not get all of the green paint off without damaging the concrete, so I just had
to work with it.
Oh Smudge....You have finally broken the arm off of the chair.
I know....You did not mean to do it...
Maybe try playing with or chewing on one of your toys...
It would really make me happy.
