A shining beacon

This was Sunday's sunrise. Storm clouds were gathering all around, but we still had some blue sky. The glow above the house was impressive seen from the vineyard. We waited all day for the predicted thunderstorms, but they all skirted around us.

Looking back at our hamlet on the way out into the vineyards.

I dare say that Tasha is now officially house-trained. I may come to regret that statement, but we have not had an indoor "accident" in quite some time. She's learning that she gets to go outside regularly and how to let us know if needs to go otherwise. Of course, part of that is us learning to read the signals. Now we're in teething mode. Tasha has at least a dozen toys to chew on, strewn all over the floor. One day soon I'll start finding teeth on the floor.


  1. This photo is otherworldly and Tasha I'm sure is out of this world, too.

  2. Teeth on the floor? I know nothing about dogs :) Do they have baby teeth that they lose, like humans?

    1. Judy:
      This is TOO funny. Yep, they lose their baby teeth just like we do. We had a Cocker Spaniel when I was very young. The first time she lost a baby tooth (I put it under my pillow and told my mother the Tooth Fairy wouldn't know the difference). My mother thought she would. When I woke up the next morning, the dog's tooth was still there! Very discerning Tooth Fairy!

  3. That photo is amazing !! It's looks as though it's from the last century. Will have to paint it.

  4. mitch, you should see her bouncing off the walls, and bouncing off the cat.

    judy, yes, as mitch said, they do have baby teeth and lose them as they approach 6 months. I have one of Collette's teeth from 1992 and a bunch of Callie's teeth from 2007. Why? I have no idea.

    cd, thanks! It's not from the last century, but the last weekend. ;)

  5. What a fantastic photo, Walt!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
