Some critter got run over in front of our driveway and the turkey vultures showed up to clean up the remains.
Being mindful that he doesn’t get run over.
Taking a quick bite….
While others were checking things out from above.
Last fall my mother decided to tear out all of her iris bulbs….as in she no longer wanted any. These bulbs are originally from my grandmother, so I couldn’t let them all get trashed.
I was excited to see that some yellow bloomed.
Taffy says hurry up because you smell so pretty when you are in full bloom.
Taffy was very, very interested in something on the other side of the fence this morning. She wouldn’t budge from this spot and kept barking and digging. I went out to see what the fascination was, only to find absolutely nothing of interest. Time went on and she kept carrying on, so I decided to take a closer look outside the fence.
I moved some leaves and fluff and found these little guys. Some dumb bunny decided to nest right by the fence. I covered them back up and tried to come up with a plan to keep the dogs from tunneling out of the yard.
This probably isn’t going to work, but it was the best I could come up with on the spur of the moment. Now Taffy is pacing from one end of the tarp to the other.
Last night was a girls night out which consisted of going to see George Thorogood at the Uptown Theater. This is the second time I have seen him in concert and both times were fantastic. He puts on quite a show.
We had a fantastic time! Would definitely go see him again.
Today my good friend, Vickie and I went for a nice long walk on the newly open Rock Island Trail.
Of course Sadie had to help me put on my hiking boots.
Naturally the litterbugs have made it to the trail and I am hoping that the state will splurge for some better signs in the near future.
Today was a dreary day, as it has been for over a week. However, the temps were in the 50’s so can’t really complain.
We didn’t see any deer, but did see the tracks they left behind.
This was the weirdest thing we saw while on our walk. Not sure if someone buried Fluffy out here or what. In all it was a good walk. We got in 4.57 miles. Will definitely need to bring the dogs out in the near future for a nice long walk to wear them out.
Glen and I, after much deliberation, decided to give Taffy the ultimate Christmas gift. We gave Taffy the gift of adoption. So naturally I had to dress her up for the occasion.
Tippy wanted in on the dress up action too.
I travel. I pun. I dress up the dog and the cat.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
