Sights from around Crooked Acres.
(From last week, when we had ice and snow. This week, it’s been in the 60s!)
I’m guessing a plow came through at some point during the night. This is the good thing about living on the road that leads directly to an important area business: not only is our road plowed when there’s, like, three plows in the entire state, but we only lost power for about three hours that night. That’s about the longest we’ve ever had to go without power except when the tornado came through in 2011 (and even then, it was only five or six hours).
The water in the ditch between the front part of the property and the back forty. That building over there is the church next door. (When I’m giving directions to our house, I always say “If you pass the church, you’ve gone too far.”)
Dennis and Mariette. And to answer the question, yes – Dennis and Mariette have become buddies. Dennis can usually be found snuggled up to Mariette or Angelo, though he’ll pretty much play with any of them.
The Players came through their surgeries just fine. Ferdinand had an extra incision because, as it turned out, he was cryptorchid (had one undescended testicle), so they had to go through his lower abdomen to get to it. Angelo also had the same issue (must run in the family!), but they were able to, y’know, dig around and get it without having to make another incision.
(And all the men reading just twitched.)
Once I got them home, they ran around and played and ate and napped and acted like they had no idea anything was different. Dennis was a little freaked out by their smell, and spent a lot – A LOT – of time sniffing their behinds, but he got over it and by mid-afternoon he and Mariette were snuggled up together sleeping.
