Starbuck spends a lot of time moping and sighing, lying on the couch with her chin between her paws. DL says that retirement was too sudden for her and she gets existential crises because she listens to me writing lectures about climate change and peak oil and so on and so forth. He says that we need to get her a hobby, perhaps some balsa wood airplanes or a stamp collecting kit.

Photos from the 'hood

The sun shining through the trees:

Sparkly sugar frost:

Overflow on Rosie Creek:

This is very annoying! We are supposed to be able to ski across this by now! But we have had hardly any snow and we keep getting warm snaps that cause more melt. Climate change sucks!

Every dog has her day

That is, her time in the most desired spot on the couch.

Lovely day in the White Mountains

It was such a pretty day that H decided to lug her giant camera around:


Starbuck looooooves to run in the snow!

H taking a photo of me taking a photo of her taking a photo of me:

Mousie tracks leading between mousie holes:

Frost growth on trees in a moist area:

My pretty Autumn girl, all comfy in the snow in her thick winter coat:

Linden, the goober:

The sun is not rising very high nowadays:

Not a bad shot with the camera timer! All four fuzzies!

Gee, can you tell which way the prevailing wind blows here?

DL looking like he swallowed the sun:

Goober surveying her surroundings:

And DL doing the same:

The leeward side of the tors, where wind-packed snow drifts had accumulated behind the sheltered vaccum:

DL looking like an Antarctic explorer:

Here are photos from H's camera:

Starbuck looooooooves snow

She reminds me of Snoopy dancing:
