Forget Indian summer

After two weeks of bluster, with power outages, tree fall damage, and farmers market closures becoming commonplace, weather forecasts show no let up for a week or more. Tough times for Border Collies, like our guy, who would much rather hunker down least until the 50 to 60 mph gusts diminish. You know what, who can argue with that?

Bookstore manners

Patience is mostly the ability to keep a good attitude while your waiting. Notice here that it might not necessarily be Casey's attitude. More like Victoria's firm grip on the leash in a Village Books lounge while I was busy checking out the used books shelf.


Corner lot

Weather conditions like this are going to be few and far between until, let's say, next June. So who can blame Casey and I for savoring the hell out of them for now, especially when exploring our corner lot. 

Thankfully our pristine lea has escaped most city intrusions or development for decades, still teaming with any and all forms of earthlings, from field mice to coyotes, even deer.

Lake breaks

A couple of side-trips to check out Lake Padden's fall finery, on the edge of sunset, really paid off with photo ops today. Here's just a couple.

Notice how the kid perked up in this last shot when I suggested we head back.
