Unwelcome Visitor

Are words even necessary?

This critter is sitting on my back porch right now, and he WILL NOT LEAVE. I don't want to take the dogs out because it will be pandemonium and I will most likely end up in the crossfire!!

Update: I let Ringo out and when I came back, it looked like our friend was playing dead. So I took the girls outside one at a time, and we skirted around the critter, who never moved. Barack sniffed at him and then jumped back. I'm sure if I go look now, he'll be gone!

Ruben the Aussie

Ruben, an australian shepherd, is only 6 months old.
But boy oh boy, this guy really wanted to herd the cattle!
He came close to getting a kick in the face.

Autumn Sunsets

October sunset

Our sunsets this past week have been pretty glorious, every single night! I think the chilly autumn nights must have something to do with all the colors we are seeing in the skies. Whatever the reason, we sure are enjoying this beautiful spectacle each evening. I think it's amazing how many different sunsets are possible... the color variations seem to stretch to infinity, and I never tire of watching the sky put on its show for us!
