Foggy Weather Games

For two straight days, our mountain has been cloaked in cloud cover, so we have had to entertain ourselves with foggy weather games.

The view of Sibe Quentin yesterday afternoon. Yes, this is full daylight.

Rain gives us mud, sun gives us warm naps, and snow gives us heaven, but fog is not high on our list of fun. We can’t even see rabbits lurking in our grass.

I think I see a rabbit. Or a rock. Or something.

With the weather so uncooperative, our favorite game becomes distract the Hu-Dad from his busyness. Amazingly, that is not his favorite game. So Hu-Dad suggested we all should go outside for a while.

Come on, Hu-Dad, I thought sitting on your desk was fun.

Just as Hu-Dad settled back down to the busyness on his computer, he hears the sound of two dogs wrestling, playing, and crashing into furniture. When he went to peek at the fun, he was a little surprised at who were the two playmates.

We are having so much fun. And, yes, we are wet!

The last we heard, the Hu-Dad was mumbling something about, “The sun will come out tomorrow. . . PLEASE!”

    Mom sez: hu-Dad, did you remember to take into account that last night was full moon? I believe tonight is the TOTALLY full moon. Fog or no fog, the effect is still there, and right now, Ice’n Ebby are feeling it, too.

    And more slam-bam-bitey-wrestle-repeat games, but this time with a dog:

    I certainly recognize some of Cheoh and Typhoon’s signature moves (face-biting, pin you to the ground and weeeee…. let’s run away to name a few).

    These (captive) wolves reminded me of your herd, especially Cheoh and Typhoon.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
