Border Collie Run-Ins

…Jango is gone so nobody ( dog ) is around to tell Loki that she is better off not taking a run at 2 local border collies who live in a barn with horses..Becoming a space dog might help cement the memory in Loki’s 1/2 border collie brain!

Truthfully it is mostly (the ghost of)Jangos fault as Loki learned to interact with these 2 via Jango’s usual method..charging in and seeing what happens. Loki has been great with all other dogs we meet in the park (without Jango) but both of these groups learned early on that they did not get along..hopefully I can change this as the 2 dogs in question are actually quite nice and friendly.

End of the Jangozotoic Era

image

13 years with the old boy..never easy watching a dogs health rapidly decline but he had a great life..He was a terror to garbage cans everywhere but he will be missed. Now Jango gets to rest peacefully beside Nova for evermore. Good luck Jango and hopefully heaven is full of unsecured meat trimming filled garbage cans.

Full Swing

Nice to have the heat of summer back..and the garden is starting to pop..including there new Scarlett runners ( in a temporary space for this year while we finalize the yard space).

And the grape trellis is really growing like crazy..had to trim it down twice already as it was getting hard to walk by without the vines attempting to pull you in..looks like a bumper crop this year. Soon all the perennials will be flowering too which will help beautify the situation…very dry for the last month too…which is odd for the area.

Burt T the Grouse

image

A nightly visitor coming around for a dried cranberry treat.  Still has not eating from our hands but getting closer.  Having had chickens in the past the dogs don’t seem to care about it. The Burt T (the grouse of course) is somewhat wary of the dogs but never strays far.

Walkway to Wide Walkway Conversion

Shoveling in the winter is the worst.. Especially when you have a plow to push the snow!  So A* and I turned the walkway into an easy to plow wide walkway.. Or driveway?

image

A* is overheating.. Near the end of blackfly season so we need to bundle up but at least we got the new are cleared and ready for winter plowing..first pass anyway.. Needs more gravel.

image

.. And a new flower/shrub bed created too..

Makes unloading the truck much easier too!

Fire Shine

..well, with clearing land comes the need to burn brush and well dried stumps which have been sitting out of the ground for 9 months..and what is a fire without friends and peach moonshine!

untitled

If you squint and use your imagination I look just like a 1984 Tom Selleck..perhaps a shot of moonshine would help too. If you also squint even harder there is a proper rock wall behind the fire…maybe 2 shots of moonshine would help you see it.
