Coonie was raised in our house, with cats. The other night she came by and a feral cat showed up too. I figured there would be a fight, but sweet Coonie just let this unknown cat eat right along side her. A few minutes later all 4 of Coonies babies came galloping up and chased the cat away. The kitty stayed about 4 feet away growling about his misfortune.
Everything under the sun was there! This boat was amazing, from the motor to all the details on the dashboard.
There were many intricate towns with working trains, to every kind of detail imaginable. Even a baseball game in progress with action! The crowd stood up with each hit of the ball! This 20 foot Titanic was for sale. $45,000!
These happy little flowers are on my front porch, reaching for every bit of remaining warmth from the sun. These last days of September are gorgeous. Maybe we can squeeze out one more day of fun in the sun. The water is colder, but the boat didn't mind. We could hardly believe that Caleb wanted to go tubing. The deal was, "OK, but don't fall off!" Sentry is an avid boater, but whined for some reason today. Did he know how cold the water was? The shot I missed was the enormous seal who watched Caleb. Another reason not to fall in! Good Bye September.
About 10 days ago we had a pigeon fly into our yard, obviously very hungry. The internet said that stray homing pigeons who get lost will eat, drink and rest for a day and then get back to trying to find home.
But this little guy decided not to leave our yard. He/she has a band with numbers on its leg, but I can't get close enough to read them. It took me one week of moving the birdseed nearer and nearer our rabbit hutch and finally today it went in.
We'd like to keep it. We call him/her Pidge. Hannah says it must be a male, since it obviously didn't ask for directions on the way home!
The annual 'swim across the Canal' day found Thomas and Caleb kayaking the waters to aid any weary swimmers. A few were happy to hitch a ride! Hannah was in the single kayak and the boys in the double. It was an incredibly beautiful, hot September day. Isn't the Northwest great!
