Pooches, once again Starlight and I missed out on an excursion because of my manservant! He headed to the walk/run park as usual this morning and returned far later than usual, reporting that he had doubled the length of his routine excursion. Breakfast was not prepared because he immediately headed to the back yard to finish yesterday’s activities. When the manicuring and leaf gathering had been completed my manservant undertook the removal of the split-rail fence and accompanying flowerbed in our back yard. Shrubs were transplanted, holes were filled, posts and fencing were hauled to the rubbish bin, and much pruning occurred. The activity left our backyard looking a wee bit bare.
After soaking in a hot bath my manservant emerged in a robe and plopped on the Davenport declaring that he was not going to take another step for the remainder of the day. Starlight and I were disappointed an excursion was not going to happen but we were grateful a cheese pizza was prepared for lunch to sooth our spirits.
