More Rainy Day Blahs

Yes, we know this is a broken record, but Mother Nature has been unrelenting and we are having even more rainy day blahs.

We took a pounding weather-wise yesterday. Nearly two inches (5 cm) of rain fell, mostly sideways with 50 mph (80 km/h) winds. None of us had much interest in being outside, though we all took turns getting soaked and then coming inside and shaking so Hu-Dad could share in the fun.

Can you hear Frankie's sighs from there?

And, trust us on this one, watching the Hu-Dad work in his study is not exactly the most exciting alternative. The end result was lots of faces that looked just like Frankie’s.

Someone fix this weather. - more rainy day blahs
Someone fix this weather.

    Mother Nature is being mean to us this year. Cross your paws Sibes and maybe we can all get plain old snow for a change. Ruby is tired of rain and ice on her snow!!

    Poor Herd and poor Hu-Dad with the REALLY bad weather. No fun zooming in the yard or doing security work around the perimeter! Here’s hoping today will be a better day!

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
