Happy Bouncy Roscoe

With cool temperatures, marsh breezes, and plenty of sunshine, everyone is enjoying outdoor time—especially a very bouncy Roscoe.

Though some stormy weather is rolling through today, the last several days have featured near perfect weather. Cool days, lots of sunshine, and some wonderful breezes blowing across the marsh. Good weather makes for perfect outdoor time.

The photographer has to give Roscoe great credit because he always seems to be aware of where the camera is. Sometimes slightly too aware.

    Oh Roscoe-your zest for life and running like the wind makes me smile. I just hope when you were running towards Hu-Dad you didn’t knock him over!

      Proper judgment of braking distances is not Roscoe’s strong suit. He makes up for it with enthusiasm.

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