Charles here: This is the last picture that Mom took of us before she put the big green cover on the pool. We like to look at the pool but we don’t want to go in it. We are not really water dogs and even when invited we think it is scary. We do like to run around and chase the ducks and stuff that fly in and we love to dig in the dirt and make a mess in the bushes.
Hard to believe how fast seasons seem to move. When Mom opened the pool the end of May, Louise was still with us (she passed June 17). Now that we are closing the pool, she is gone and Jolie has come to stay. Change is on the wind as the light grows shorter and shorter each day.
Jolie is learning to love lying on the warm deck as much as I do. The Fall afternoon sun is awesome!
Happy AUTUMNAL EQUINOX everyone.
This week, in the Northern Hemisphere, autumn begins for real. It has been feeling like autumn for many days with the cool nights and the leaves falling to the ground. Thursday, September 22 the autumnal equinox* will make it really autumn even though to meteorologists, meteorological fall started on September 1. This is all very confusing but Mom says it is the bestest season of all 4 (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring) and we are taking full advantage everyday.
*At this point, the Earth’s tilt is moving away from its maximum lean toward the Sun; its rays are aiming directly at the equator.
