Just For Fun

February 3, 2013

Took the dog for a ride,

to haul a load of wood.

Took the cat for a walk to the creek,

to look for Populus buds, for more of this.



Along the way we saw the filberts just starting to bloom.

A nice afternoon despite the fact we didn’t find any downed cottonwood limbs.

    I’m sure you made a mistake, surely it was the cat taking you for a walk? Or perhaps choosing to join you to give you some company? Cats don’t get taken anywhere do they? :).
    Dogs on the other hand, cannot wait to be taken somewhere – anywhere, in fact! And everytime you pick up those truck keys might be one of those times when you’re taking the dogs too, right? Lovely pictures of your day.

      SSF, so right, she was just sure we would stop by the hen house and slip her an egg on the way home. I wasn’t too sure about the egg supply after the big move, but the girls didn’t get their panties in a bunch like Russell – lots o’ eggs for all! The kitty was right!

      As for the dogs, these two see a leash or an open pickup door and there they are. Even if you’re just going to the woodshed for a load of wood; it’s great fun apparently to ride in the truck – goofballs!

        Our two cats always seem to join us on our walks, they are worse than dogs because they meow all the way round and we have to keep whistling them so they don’t lose us in the long grass or their meows get louder. Maybe they are worried we will get lost if they don’t join us?

          We have had a series of cats named Trip. They would walk with us rubbing the inside of each leg at each step. This had nothing to do with their ultimate demise. That was more likely due to owl activity.

    Ohhhh yes, this weekend sure was a lovely one up here! I love it when my cat joins me for a walk, ablbeit never too far from home. Your pup looks so shiny & happy… “going for a ride, oh boy, oh boy”!

    Did you load that by yourself there muscles? I know I’m sore from my weekend of cutting and stacking. I’m feeling better now because of it.

      HFS, yeah, wood/fire is my department after it gets to the woodshed. There wasn’t cutting involved in this though, just loading and moving to the house and unloading, if it needs more splitting I do that each day.

        We do the same. Just split down to quarters or eighths then chop it down if necessary once it’s inside.
