While hubby was away on his latest trip to capture the ever elusive elk, I too wanted to enjoy the great outdoors, the campfire without the camping, especially in temps as cold as it was going to get in the mountains of Colorado. So over Labor Day weekend, as a way to say goodbye to summer, I decided to have a sit out by the fire. It turned out really well I think.
The only ones who wanted to participate (or were here to participate) where my pups. They were excited, getting to stay out after dark and woof at strange noises!
The pictures are a little dark but if you blow em up by clicking on the picture you can see what might not be obvious to anyone not looking. (Or the fact that I am not the greatest photographer in the world and really challenged in the dark!) This was me in a chair enjoying a beverage, with Sampson and Dew in the foreground...
OK and now he is just flat out acting because there was not that much left in the bottle! I tried to catch this pic over my shoulder while sitting because if I got up he dropped it, but if you look close you can tell (or take my word for it) he was laying on his side with the bottle propped between two paws. What a clown!
Anyways we had a great time playing in the fire, gazing at the stairs and listening to the crickets chirp (no cricket hunting allowed!).
Those of you who weren't here were missed! (and you know who you are :-)).
