• • • Late evening, early summer play…..seems so far away…
Now it’s dark at 7pm (soon it will be dark at 4), and the simplicity of summer feels like another lifetime, replaced with the mad dash of preparation before winter sets in.  Getting load after load of firewood.  Final improvements on the homestead until work can resume next spring.  Updating and reinforcing the corrals and shelter for the large animals.  It is non-stop work.
So take me away, Internet, to a time of butterflies and balmy nights, when the most important thing was PLAY.  Leave your title, caption, or canine commentaries for the image above in the comment section of this post, and you’ll be in the running to win a print of another summertime scene (click HERE to see it)

    Why do the others think it’s Chloe’s backside? I think it’s ELI – the tail isn’t white, and I don’t see any black spots on the non-Charlie body.
