There was a plan…

I had the best plan for my blog today.  It is the first day of fall, the autumnal equinox if you will, and I was going to celebrate.  I was going to post a picture of something fall-ish and say “happy fall”.  Like the color of the leaves.  Or a decoration that symbolizes the season.  Though I have to admit all the decorations seem to be combining fall, halloween, and thanksgiving.  They are a little strange.  So anyway, I went out to take pictures.  Here is what I came up with.

Not exactly fall colors.  I think that branch is actually dead.  Whatever.

Oh but I did find an evergreen…kinda pretty.

Technically it is the color that it would be in the fall…oh, and I should have editted out trash can out, but I didn’t know how to do that without cutting the tree.  I guess I could learn.

Anyway, I felt very weird about walking up to one of my neighbors’ front porch to take a picture of fall decor.  Believe me, I do not even own fall decorations.  Not gonna happen.  My plans for my post are simply not happening.  I came inside and Dave asked me how it went and I stood in the living room staring around my house blankly.  I simply could not think of what to take a picture of.  Then this happened.

Yes, he prefers to be ON you when he relaxes.

The dogs became my photo shoot, and they loved it. They were totally hamming it up.


Play time.  Sometimes they actually do play together and both pull on the rope.  Most of the time Danger just pulls Gunny around the room until Gunny decides he has had enough and tackles Danger.  Or else they just sit at opposite ends of the rope and chew it to bits.

Like that.  I also got a bunch of pictures of Gunny’s tongue.  Seriously, you have to see this thing.  He has the longest tongue and he slurps it around as his primary sensory experience.  He likes to lick people….everything.

I love that tongue!

Dave may or may not be making pancakes.  I may or may not have put chocolate in the batter.  Tonight is a good night.

Happy Fall!
