Creek ~ House ~ Harley ~ Killer Bruiser ~ Pie Day


Good 45ยบ POURING rain again morning. We missed viewing the full moon. Too many clouds. Dang.

Rain rain rain, all night long. We are up to 4½" since Wednesday night. Of that 1½ inches from yesterday morning to this morning. The creeks are a risin'.

On this date in 1997 we bought this house... lots to look forward to. Here it is, sagging roof, no fence, and siding was T1-11 (barn siding). We did a lot of fixing up...

.... and we had Harley with us... he was 6 years old ....

Back then he was like Bruiser, and outside cat and a hunter. He had his food/water dishes and a bed in the bed of Jerry's 1955 Chevy pickup in the carport. Now, of course, he's an indoor guy. Too old and frail to be outside. So, in his place we now have Bruiser.... he earned his "keep" yesterday when he brought me a fresh kill. A mole! Danged little moles make a mess, not only in my yard, but all over the property. Bruiser jumped up on the porch with this thing in his mouth, dropped it in front of the glass door and looked at me! "Look mom, see what I brought you! Aren't you proud of me?" Yes, I am!!!

When he was finished playing with the poor dead critter, he ate it. All he left was the face (on the right) and whatever that organ is...

Then it was nap time...
.....of course, and Maggie too!

Out back the Toms, or as we call them ... "the Thanksgiving escapees",  were strutting around and a lone hen was fluffing out her feathers... whether or not she was showing off for the boys or drying out.... ??
