Why, because I have moved one rung up the ladder from being the total city idiot who lives around here. Our new neighbour lady now has the bottom rung, as it turns out she is a city girl who has moved to the country. Mind you I could be in for a bit of a competition, as she at least owns a horse and has two dogs.
Bumped into her while I was walking Molly yesterday and she was walking her two and just happened to mention about our resident coyote that is still wandering around. She wasn't awfully thrilled about hearing him, and decided to walk back to the house rather than walk via the field. As I pointed out to her, she had no need to worry with her two dogs, one is a boxer and the other is a black Bull Terrier, so they would over power a coyote. Happened to see our coyote friend a bit later on by the way, he's now looking scruffy.
One good thing did come out of our meeting, Molly although interested at first with her dogs lost interest fast, as Molly's nose took her in other directions. So I know she'll be fine with another dog being around.
The cluster flies are overtaking the house again. I did however book the guy to come and point outside of the house for next month, so that should help in the Fall. I also have a guy coming by to give me a quote on re-shingling the garage roof and I have been calling around to see how much chain link fencing is per linear foot. From what I can gather $11.50 is the normal around here? I don't have much in the way of knowledge of this product, but would like to have an area fenced so we could let Molly out off leash. I was thinking four feet high would be fine? If anyone has more experience in this any advise would be welcome.
Oh and by the way, Molly is in a state of confusion at the moment, as I walked her three times yesterday........she has never been walked as much since my brother was here!!!
Finally this photo was taken Sunday evening, we are very fortunate to see such beautiful sunsets:
