Overlook inspection excursion.

Yes pooches,  it is another cold day.  So what else is new?

My manservant sought the safety and warmth of the gym again for his morning walk/run and even managed a bit of velocipede cycling and a long sweat in the sauna before returning to our den.  The cold weather kept us inside this morning as has been the custom of late.  Starlight and I napped while my manservant piddled about, doing much but accomplishing nothing.

As excursion time rolled around my manservant suggested that we keep in the winter tradition of eating lunch at our den before venturing out on an excursion.  Pooches, Starlight and I enthusiastically  supported that idea.  Uncured ham and lentil soup was soon simmered away on the firebox!

After enjoying our lunch we ambled out to the Hybridmobile.  It lazily purred down the lane onto the carriageway.  We made the decision that we would visit my overlook for today’s excursion in order to inspect it for any repairs that needed to be reported after the ice storm.

The cold outside temperature had dissuaded all but one human from visiting my overlook despite the abundant SUNSHINE.  We learned why as soon as we hopped out of the Hybridmobile!  A cold, brisk north wind blew, as it has for so much of this winter, and it made being outside quite dicey.  Nevertheless, we had out inspection to carry out and we scurried from head to toe of my overlook looking for signs of damage.

We were all relieved to find my overlook in tip-top shape and decided to forego any sniffing today and return to our warm den pronto.

Pooches, there are rumours in the air that early next week the temperatures may rise to highs of 23ºC!  If that happens you are going to read about and see pictures of a lollapalooza of an excursion!!

See you tomorrow on Silent Saturday, pooches.

I'm glad to see that my overlook seems no worse for the wear after this week's ice storm.

Starlight, now that we know everything is fine at my overlook we can head back to our den where it is warm!
