Pre-Tropical Mess Games

With crazy amounts of rain from Ian soaking us for the next two days, we needed some pre-tropical mess games in the yard.

You expect me to act silly in front of the camera?

By the time Ian reaches us here in Asheville, it will no longer be a hurricane, but we expect several inches of rain over the next two days. We decided to enjoy a quiet, sunny evening in the yard. Typhoon celebrated with a nice roll in the grass. Normally, he would forbid such un-royal photos, but he figured we all needed the entertainment.

A royal squirm and wiggle
Followed by the royal flop
We shall never discuss this again.

P.S. – Good thoughts for everyone who has been in the path of this monster storm. We hope you are well and safe.

    The lighter side of Typhoon. He tried to keep it a secret.

    TOO funny-sorry Typhoon but know these pictures of very few and far in between!! Love them.

    I have family in Florida and thank God they are all fine. In Delaware we may get some of that rain but we’ll see. Stay safe all!
