I thought you all would get a kick out of this.
Jester really picked up being a good traveler over the five days we were
gone last weekend.
On Monday morning, he knew I was loading the car again, as I kept leaving the room.
(the bed was like a throne)
He knew we were about to hit the road.
One last pee pee in Iowa, and we were on the way home!
And seeing our beautiful Lilly, who came to greet us as we came in the door.
So, since Monday, we have had several days too hot to walk, but we
did manage today and Tuesday. The problem is, when
it's so hot... the animals are hiding in the shade.
We are back to the land where gas is more reasonably priced...
we paid 2.64 a gallon in Indiana.
Back to geraniums blooming on the deck, and the herbs coming up well.
Keith took good care of them while I was gone.
Flowers are blooming in the in-ground garden, too.
Yes, I have some cleaning up to do in this bed.
Love how the ear tags are all lined up :-) These are the mamas from the little pasture pond.
Their babies were out of the picture to the right, under the shade of a tree.
I did get one hawk.
And the back of a rock pigeon that was just beautiful in the sun, at the dump.
There were geese on the pit-pond at the dump, too.
But this is the picture I was so glad to get!
It's a quail, and I had to snap a bunch to get a decently clear one, because if I open the car door, they are up and away. I finally got her to hold still long enough!
