The Crow’s Nest

No, no, no, we did not find a crow in a nest. Since we are at the beach on our S-RV excursion, we thought we would use a nautical term and talk about the crow’s nest – the structure on a ship for a lookout. The crow’s nest in our S-RV would be the Captain’s Chairs at the front of the S-RV – plenty of observation view with the big windows.

We realize that many of you will be asking why Queen Natasha the Evil doesn’t have this observation post. The answer is simple – such a duty is beneath the Queen. If something interesting happens, she might take over the crow’s nest (and no one would argue), but manning the observation post is usually for a junior member.

Who might be the enemy? Squirrels. Rabbits. Other dogs. And the biggest enemy of them all . . . cats.

Hey, Herd, squirrel alert.

Sorry – have to go. The enemy is approaching.
