Dig this

Posted by laurie on August 17, 2012

We were enjoying dinner on the Lido Deck when the mulch started to fly. I looked over and saw Sherman frantically digging. Yelling doesn’t work of course, but I tried anyway (didn’t work). So Phillip got up to investigate along with his personal assistant. He couldn’t find anything and our intrepid hunter quickly lost interest. False alarm, but you never know…

Aug 15

Posted by laurie on August 15, 2012

When I save these photos in Photoshop I name them with the day that they appear, so this photo is named “aug15.jpg”. As soon as I pressed the save button, I thought, “Nina Dickinson’s birthday.” I haven’t seen her since high school and haven’t thought about her in probably decades, but I still remember her birthday. I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t know the birthdays of any of my eight great-nieces and great-nephews (among many others) and I think that’s because all of my childhood friends’ birthdays take up the available slots in my brain. While this is just speculation on my part, I’m sure I’m not alone and that the data would support my theory.

But back to Sherman. He’s been going out on late-night hunting expeditions lately and the other day his spoils included half of a bird, which he brought back to bed. Fortunately I slept through the celebration.

Loads of cute

Posted by laurie on August 14, 2012

This is Sue’s newly adopted basset/labrador mix Eli, aka Huggy Bear. What a cutie!

And this is without a doubt the funniest beagle video I’ve ever seen. Enjoy!

Parlez Vous?

Posted by laurie on August 13, 2012

Vous has this habit of walking away from her dinner bowl while she chews. She stretches her legs, takes in the scenery. Not a good idea of course, and we’ve had to stand guard during each meal. When she has just a little left, however, I’ll let one of the boys barge on in, hoping she’ll learn. Still hoping!

As you can see, Stanley is no where as deferential to his cousin Vous as he is to a certain Miss Maggie. They also chase each other around in the yard. I think Phillip got some video of that. This is a short visit and this evening it’s back to Brooklyn for the Vouzie.

What’s for dessert?

Posted by laurie on August 10, 2012

Maggie went home on Wednesday night but not before enjoying some delicacies in the mess hall. Dress was casual, as you can tell by Phillip’s laces and Sherman’s ear.

A new camp session starts today and you can expect to see Vous the sheltie next week. Have a great weekend!

Stanley gets daring

Posted by laurie on August 8, 2012

Play time! Miss Smiley (check out those teeth!) is playing with the wubba and Stanley with Mr. Skunk.

Stan would really like that Wubba, though. After all, it is HIS.

So he tries that “leg over” thing that he does with Sherman.

To no avail, but wait! Is some feminine hygiene going on?

Ta Da!!! My brave, brave boy.

Pin-up girl

Posted by laurie on August 7, 2012

Courtneay and Lance, did you know know Maggie could be so sultry? I really love this photo and except for hiding a piece of banister, I didn’t do anything else to it in Photoshop. The lighting on the stair landing was perfect. I was going upstairs and she rolled over for a tummy rub, then held the position while I got my camera! Thank-you, Maggie for a wonderful pose.

And happy birthday (today) to my hubby!

Camper Maggie

Posted by laurie on August 6, 2012

Camp Kramer has its second camper this summer, and welcome back, Maggie! She arrived before I returned from Oregon on Friday and is having a good time. She’s so well behaved and a lovely guest. Phillip is off this week for his birthday, and the beagles will do some serious mileage on the canal (15 miles in 3 days so far). Being the gentleman that he is, Stanley is sharing his bed and Angry Birds with her. Is that expression priceless or what?

Sorry, Stan! She’ll get up soon!
