Today we were up early with a mission in mind. We headed off before breakfast so we could catch Lacey and Clayton still half awake and smuggle Miss Ella out of their house. Once we had her in our clutches we ran for the wide open country and holed up at Dogpound North for day or two with our youngest grandchild. She wanted to see the horses, over and over again.
We set up her swimming pool on the lawn and filled it with well water. Yikes that was cold but Grandma came through with a few buckets of hot water from the house so it was not long until she was swimming away to her hearts content. I think she spent 2 or 3 hours running and diving into that pool.
Almost every picture we have of her whether on the ground or in the pool has Mack keeping a close watch on her. It would be a brave fool who would try to get between this little girl and her bodyguard. And when Mack wasn’t on duty Meg was.
All in all it was a great day, sunshine, no wind, Ella to keep us smiling all day.
Oh by the way here is picture of our WHOLE apple crop this year. Looks like apple pie is not on the horizon again. Last year we had lot’s of flowers but no bees, this year we had flowers and bees but I guess the bees were not doing what bees do as this is the only apple on the tree. While farming is like that, maybe next year.
Yah, that is my thumb in there for reference.
