INTRUDER

There is a black dog hanging around here today. I'm going into the garden to chase it away.

Poor black dog; wherever he's lurking. Hope the garden chases him away. Hugs from GP

THere's a good-sized brown hare sitting outside my window this morning.

We don't see many strays in our neighborhood anymore. Were you successful in chasing him away?

You're a poet and didn't know it.

PI said...

Thanks Penny. Not much gardening done but I think the black dog has gone.

Jack: are you quite sure it isn't a brown bear?

Judy: sometimes i am too obscure for my own good. The black dog was a metaphor (or is it a figure of speech)forlow spirits. All gone now.

PI said...

Great Scott John! You're right!

You don't seem the kind of person to give in to feeling low. Glad its past now and hope it was nothing serious that brought it on in the first place.

Jack said...

No. We live in the country where there are only gentle Beatrix-like animals. The bears are all in Toronto.

I guessed the black dog was you not feeling quite the thing. Glad its all gone now. Did you know there is a Chris Rea song about his black dog?

Wasn't that how Churchill referred to his depression?

I hope the garden restored your spirits Pat. Was it wet there - it rained pm here.

PI said...

sablonneuse:it was a bad dream. Just like the sun going behind a cloud - it comes out again.

Really Jack? Do you not have bears? Or are you teasing me?

belle: I love Chris Rea's voice. I'll look out for it.

Anna: yes Winnie did call it that. It's gone away. We had a spattering of rain - no sun but lots of glowering clouds.

Teasing you. We have black bears all around us. My wife heard a noise one night and went to investigate, thinking it would be a raccoon at the birdfeeder. As she slid open the door to the back deck to shoo it away, a bear began to lumber away and she (wife) let out a terrific yell. By the time I got there the bear was gone. We no longer put out feeders in the spring-summer seasons.

Had one around here yesterday too. I chased him with music and dancing. Hope yours is gone now.

PI said...

GG: yes he's gone. He doesn't stay very long thankfully!

PI said...

Jack:golly it must be scary at times. It's not quite the same league as a spider in the bath is it?

Jack said...

We have those, too. You name it, we have it: we live in the country.

We haven't seen a black bear since, though. We have two big dogs living next door and I'm convinced their existence keeps the bears away. Bears don't really want a fight.

PI said...

jack: that's comforting to know.

Nea said...

It's the same here in Sweden. The bears are really very shy. All I've ever seeen is bear poo and footprints.

PI said...

Nea: between you, you are ruining the poor bear's macho reputation!
