M&M Monday

Last Monday I woke to a bit of excitement--or I should say, inconvenience. I turned the tap on, and . . . no water. So an electrician came to inspect the well and found that lightning had struck the well cap & blown out the well pump. He was scheduled to come back on Tuesday, but it RAINED, so we had to wait til a sunnier day on Wednesday. So yes, for those doing no-water-math, that was three days! But having gone without water AND electricity for FIVE days last year during a blizzard, this wasn't that bad. And Fisherman Willie brought over a 5-gallon jug of water with a hand pump, so we had drinking water. The only thing was that I wash my hands a lot during the course of the day, especially after petting the dogs, so that was a bit of a challenge. Glad I didn't have any out-of-the-ordinary clean-ups!

Maggie looks up at the electricians on the hill.

Awwww. Big points for being dog-friendly.  :-)

Back up the ramp.

Watching the guys from her domain.
Another day, another hanging out by the forsythia:

Sweet Maggie.
And here's Millie on the porch:

with Tabby Bobcat.

Yoohoo, Mil! 

Here's Millie by the forsythia:


Up the ramp.

And this is what happens, whoever comes in the house first:

Maggie plants herself in the entrance. By Millie's food bowl.

Millie sits and bides her time.  Eventually she advances forward with a Grrrr. Then I take the food bowl away, and she wags her tail and walks by Maggie. Or vice-versa, if it's Millie sitting there and Maggie comes in last. It's the game they play. Silly girls.  :-)
