Trig or treat
On one of our regular walk routes around town, we go up this set of stairs (44 steps) onto a pedestrian overpass. Every time we do this Willow races to the top and stands there barking at me, "Come on, hurry up!" as I feel a bit of a burn taking the steps two at a time as quick as I can, thinking how much easier this would be if I was lighter and didn't have a bloody dog attracting everyone's attention to my efforts.
And a pic from this morning for those who, like Ron, appreciate that dogs rock...
You could cut out on having coffee & cake for smoko…
Coffee is good for you.
And I only like rock cakes and fish cake.
My dogs were making a fuss in the garden today.....
The only ones I ever saw on the farm were because of dogs finding 'em. A couple of times I've seen one next to the road & thought I'd get a pic but after pulling up & getting out I could find no trace of the sneaky little buggers. It always happened when I didn't have a dog with me. They're invisible in the bush without having a dog's nose to help.
Plenty cross roads around here. Then they try to hide on the asphalt when a vehicle comes near. Bad idea!
Saw one crossing a single lane floodway near home a while back. Seeing as I was on the bike & had winter gloves on I thought I'd pick the little fella up & shift it off the bridge before it got squished. How well can they sink their claws into concrete!! Eventually managed to prise it free but not before it managed to get me through my winter gloves a couple of times!!
Chic canine couple on a wet outing today
I won't show Willow that pic, don't want the bitch to be exposed to online fashion influencers.
Bloody awful weather here today...
So Qld made it unscathed from Mrs dd & I holidaying up there to escape the winter & covid stuff here. Seeing as we were away for a while we couldn't leave the hounds behind so they came on a road trip to.
This is at Lake Dunn in central Qld north of Barcaldine & west of "the "coalmine
And this is on the sculpture trail That runs from Aramac to Lake Dunn, east towards the Aramac-Jericho rd & back to Aramac, round trip of about 200km. About 20 sculptures all up, made from farm scrap by a woman who live on one of the properties. The ram here is mainly barb wire. Yazi gave it a good barking at, couldnt figure out why it didn't quite smell right however
Lucky dogs in their (almost) infinity pool today
With the improving weather it's less rocks & more water shots it seems...
It got a bit warm on a long walk today.
More water pics from today.
The (usually) pink lake at Pootenup.
Best story I've read for ages
If a baby magpie falls out of its tree and a human picks it up the parents won't take it back.
A friend adopted a baby magpie that this happened to. He was named Fatso because, with three young girls to feed him, he became quite well nourished.
Because he didn't grow up with the wild birds he didn't learn to sing properly, so when he came back to visit his four surrogate mothers they could always tell he was there by his unique song.
