Gunner the Border Collie

Gunner is a herding dog. His owner (our farrier) said that he's great with goats. Once he was allowed out of the pickup truck, he ran, and ran, and ran, and ran.... well, you get the point. Then he discovered Murphy in his pen and ran back and forth, back and forth, back and forth... and finally, plopped down right in front of Murphy. I guess he decided that he had successfully "herded" Murphy and he was going to keep an eye on him!

The Biggest Bugs Live in Kansas

Just your average cicada... he crawled up out of these flowers as I was watering them the other day! I guess I'll have to admit... I have a fascination for big bugs. And snakes. And sometimes spiders. I just do not want any spiders on me. Then I do the spider dance...

Tonight's Kansas Sunset

As these were uploading, I took one of the dogs outside. Just since I took these pictures about 15 minutes ago, now it is lightning within the huge clouds you see here. I wish I had time to get more pics, but it's late and I need to get things ready for work tomorrow!
