So it is late and I want to go to bed. I go to the front door to call the cats in...two come running but where is Albert? I go to the back door "Aaaaalllllbert"...no Albert.

Back to the front door "Aaaaalllbert"...oh some rustling in the bushes.

"Here he comes" I say to myself.

More rustling in the bushes..."hurry up" I tell him.

"I see you over by the car, come on!"

Ok fine. I agree it is a beautiful night and it is more fun to be out than in but I want to go to bed.

"Here I come!" I can barely see him over there because he is all black, but I know he is there. I am squinting to see him and telling him to get his booty into the house. As I approach him he turns his back on me...HOW DARE HIM!! Oh wait...Albert doesn't have white stripes down his back.

I didn't realize I could run 20 yards back into the house in 1.8 seconds!!
Bears in our campsite, skunks in the front yard...what next?? It's time to really get down to business!! I have been working on store orders and just kinda puttering around most of the summer. It's time to put my head down and get busy. Watch for a website update on my site on Friday...It's beginning to look alot like Halloween around here...
I have really been out to lunch. I just found out that Ms. Zinnia herself has a blog. Stop by when you have a chance...her artwork is second to none and to top it off she is an absolute sweetie!

I am laughing so hard, if that was at my house...it would have had another icky ending (think dead fruitrats!) oh ick!

I know, it's so easy to pretend you have all the time in the world in the summer, isn' it?? from one "must bust a move and get going" girl to another...hope your time is stretched out so you can accomplish much, while still staying sane.:)
hugs, Lidy

Oh..thank goodness you didn't get sprayed..!!!!!! They say that skunks make wonderful pets if you have them de-smelled.....or whatever it's called...! :)
