Little Walkie

Today it rained like crazy.  It never rains like crazy here!  Finally the rain clouds went away.

Blue sky coming our way!
So we decided to take a little walkie around our neighborhood.  Not too far since we ran 6 miles yesterday.

Our neighborhood (arrow pointing to our house)
"Hey Dad, what is that?"
"I see it too Murphy!"
Do you see it, standing on the rock?


 At first we thought it was a squirrel but then dad said it was a prairie dog. What do you think?

Status of Painting:  There is only 1 more room to go.  It is the office but mom said it might take a week or two before she starts it.  She called it an electronic nightmare.  Then she needs to do some closets but she said that it may be a long time before she starts them.

  2. Was that some kind of crazy rain or what?!!! You should see the flood pond at the church, it's a lake! And your dad is right I do believe, it's a ground dog of sorts.

  7. Closets have doors on them for a reason...just sayin'.

    We see that thingy, can't tell what it is, so we'll just have to go with prairie dog.

    Glad you got in a walk....rain can really mess walks up.

  15. Hi there, When we first moved to Colorado we loved seeing the Prairie Dogs but as time went on, we realized just what a nuisance they can be and how they can ruin hiking areas(the smell alone is enough to drive people away). It is cloudy here today with thunder clouds too; hope it doesn't rain. Have a great day boys!
    Tell mom not to work too hard painting-it will be there tomorrow or next week.
    Happy Dance,
    Noreen & Hunter
