Beware the Charmer

You have to watch out for the charmers.

You know the ones.  With their coy looks...

....and little smiles....

...hiding all the diabolical plans behind sweet innocence.

Beware the charmer.  They'll get you into trouble every time and you won't even see it coming.

A Brown Study

I thought I would get caught up on the blog this weekend, but my internet connection pooped out and I fell on the ice last week and landed right on my tailbone, making sitting at the computer not fun.  Nothing like breaking one's ass metaphorically to pay for over-expensive, bad internet service and breaking one's ass literally on a bit of hidden ice.

We did see the sun for about 20 minutes this month so...that was something.  It provided a chance to capture some of the winter colors.

Chocolate makes everything better right?

Super Powers

Connor's super power is to be every puppy's bestest uncle.  Right now, he is Ian's best friend, mentor, play mate, chew toy, babysitter and all-around pack instructor.  He shares babysitting duty with Kelsey, but he is the only one who has the energy and stamina to keep a 6 month old Border Collie puppy entertained and out of trouble. 

The dog couch may not survive much longer, but the puppy is growing well.

To get an idea of what it is like to raise Border Collies....just put these videos on continuous loop for about 4 hours every day, combine this with daily farm chores, many miles of hiking and running with the rest of the pack. 

Nothing to it.  As long as you can put two Super Powers together to wear each other out.
