Hello everyone; yes, once again it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here, well, not to bring any news, really, but to complain about the weather. You may remember me from such posts as “A Wet Afternoon” and “The Weather, Again”, among so many, many other weather-related posts.
Here I am in a characteristically weather-related pose. Don’t you think I look ultra-sad and pathetic? I had my dinner; the guy I live with fed it to me while it was thundering, and now I’m waiting, wondering if I’ll ever get to go on my walk. Maybe I even need to look sadder. The day started out nicely, all sunny and everything, but then the clouds rolled in, like they have almost every single day in the last three months, but unlike most days, where it just thundered and thundered and sprinkled a tiny bit, something else happened today. I have a movie to prove it.
And, not only that, I have a movie that shows what it’s like to be in my fort. Almost, anyway.
The guy I live with went out after this and took one whole picture, out in the way back. That’s the blue lyme grass, Leymus arenarius. It does spread like crazy, but that’s what we want.So, okay, true, the guy I live with did get a little rain water for the house plants, but I’m really, really, really tired of all the thunder. It’s nice to think it could snow here next month. (The guy I live with disagrees with this sentiment.) I did get to go on my afternoon walk. I am ready for winter, though.
Until next time, then.
