Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Saturday dinner was ready and we were setting the table outside on the back porch area – enclosed inside Sibe Quentin but fenced off so that it is a dog free zone. So the answer to “Guess who’s coming to dinner?” does not include any of The Herd.

concentrating on dinner.

Yes, I am concentrating on dinner, but just not the one the humans prepared.

Typhoon continues his amazing timing skills by disturbing a nest of field mice and chasing them on to the human porch – just as dinner was being served.

Send them back?

Could you send them back my way?

Never a dull moment at Chez Herd.
