We haven't done a lot this summer. Trying to save $$$, the gimps and the heat have kept us close to home.
Stumpy's stayed busy. In between her fly-catching exercises
Stumpy is still helping around the house, earning her keep
and meaty bones
We spend our evenings and early mornings watching and feeding the quail, bunnies and jack rabbits.
The cattle have visited a few times.
And we recently had two full days of pouring rain which caused the temperature to drop and the spiders to move inside.
This wolf spider is about the size of a silver dollar. Lovely.
With the drop in temperature Stumpy is once again thrilled to be going for rides.
All summer long she remained hopeful
And finally resumes her rightful place of Chief Navigator
Carefully, she scouts the road ahead for obstructions
(we're only going about 5mph on a dirt road when she hangs her head out the window)
She knows I rely on her expertise
When she's sure the course is set, Stumpy settles back in, to enjoy the ride
Stumpy and I are looking forward to outings to the lake, now that it's cooled off some! Stay tuned!
AND BLOGGER STILL SUCKS! J
