Afternoon Sun - a Country Dog's Tale

These fall afternoons, when the temperature is do-able and the winds are's nice to sit out and just contemplate the quiet of the changing season.

There is nothing to excite us, we casually check outside our confines to make sure the world is an "OK" place.

The warmth of the sun, makes us feel at ease.

In fact, it makes us down right sleepy...

"Excuse me if I nod off a bit."

"Uuhhhh...Let me catch some serious warmth here."

"Oh well, I can tell something is in the wind...I must get up and check it out."

"Huh???  What is that??"

So that's whose been trying to dig
under the foundation into the cellar and crawlspace!!
(The quality of this last photo was compromised by the fleeing photographer as she attempted to corral herself and her dogs away from the source of the smell that was being "let out" in a 360 degree pattern from this swirling critter.)

I assume "Where I stand on Sunday" will take place in the shower!

Great photos and dialogue Pattie. Was anyone hit? I can't remember if bathing in tomato juice helps, or if it's fact or fiction.

Thanks Lorrie and Vern - no one was actually hit in this attack, but you sure get his presence when you exit the back door through the new sunporch...seems the spraying scent came down the wall of the house and up and under all open spots, like along the bottom edge of that porch. Each day it gets a little better. Someone living among them all their lives here said to use hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and Dawn dishsoap. But I DO have the tomato juice in the cupboard, just in case. I can't imagine. I can imagine how bad it would smell to have one spray you or the dog.
