A nice fall afternoon, low sun and 48F.

Holly just spent a happy 15 minutes romping around with a 2 year old Border Collie mix, so I think we can class her as pretty much back to fighting form :) Guess I'll have to get the tennis ball back out ;)

Dinner with the Barbers and tales of years with drugs.

We're back!

Probably a little before we should be, but neither Holly nor I could stand to wait much longer ;)

She's almost limp free and so I figure we can start to gently work our way back up to our regular loop- but I'm going to wait a while before I bring the tennis ball with us (much to her disgust!).

It's a gorgeous fall day: sunny, coolish (57F) and blustery with leaves blowing all over :)

Theo settles in to life at Hobie's.

Sunday, November 8, 2015


Out for a very gentle stroll with Holly and Crisp. I was going to keep Holly out of the woods for a few days, but Crisp needed her to pose for a picture here for his photography class. No tennis ball though!

Warm and pleasant, 54F, with low sunshine and no wind to speak of.

And Friday again...

... with the good camera :)

Friday off

Taking a break from the Goldfinch for a day as I have my camera with me. I am however listening to a random selection of music by Shostakovich, which seems quite appropriate for this strangely warm (71F) and sticky day with a strong, gusty wind.
