The temperature is definitely feeling fall-like. The sun rises later and sets earlier; but that is not the issue. It is colder in the morning and doesn’t get as warm in the afternoons, at least most days lately. Here we’ve already had a few hard frosts. We live in a river valley and it is always colder here than elsewhere.
The full moon last week meant that Gertrude did not want to go to bed at a decent hour. She actually spent a night out. That would be okay if I weren’t worried about her getting eaten or at least attacked by bigger animals. She sits under the tree quacking for Lefty to come down and play more. Soon that won’t be an issue because as soon as the trees lose their leaves, Lefty will be joining her in the dog house for the nights. They spend time there during the day sometimes and sometimes they go into the old dog house which is falling apart. Their food and water is in the new dog house, but they still eat a lot of greens. That too will end as soon as the greens die out. They also eat a lot of worms and bugs. They are quite cute and entertaining. Who knew!
Interesting that people seem to be so desperate these days and steal from others and each other. It is appalling that people would steal from their towns and others as if they deserve it more. Each points fingers at others as if that person is the problem and they are not like that. It is amusing to watch until they steal from us. It is disappointing to see.
