Where's Stumpy been?
Work (that I don't get paid for) has been kicking my butt, 7 days a week for 2 months now.
On top of that, new neighbors, the kind you dread, moved next door 2 months ago. There's eight people in two small trailers and six dogs running loose all the time. Stumpy is afraid to leave the deck because the dogs see her in the yard and mob her. These people have no idea what a trash can is used for and one of the trailers has no septic...So yeah, I get to watch them from my deck relieving themselves and their trash blowing through my yard. Not fun!!! Their dogs are outside dogs and seem to sleep all day and bark all night. It's just awful!!! And yes, I have called animal control, the health department and the zoning board. The other "neighbors" have also called. Sooner or later they well be removed, but until then ...AAARGGGGHHH!!!!
On to other things. You may or may not recall that one of my responsibilities is the running of a thrift store. It's a good thing I am not a shopper. However, I do have a weakness for things that I know Stumpy will love. With the colder temperatures, Stumpy is enjoying my most recent purchase.
The chair is cushy. Stumpy is all about comfort. It also provides a bit of a wind break.
It's also the perfect spot for coyote spying. You can have your seasonal frogs, Norwood. Stumpy is into coyotes.
