We found sap buckets !! As I mentioned in my last post - with so many people going to sap lines.. I miss this maple sugaring time sight.
On the trot home - we pass by this house - where there is always something going on for a potential spook :) The man is hosing his car off (another sign of MUD season !?) and resident Killer dog , Buddy is on the porch. He is hitched to one of those over head runs... don't they make a lovely noise along with the lunging and barking ?? Buddy is grown up now and much more mature in his golden years.
We stop for a quick neighborly chat -- but it would have made an excellent video for Denise's obstacle month - with the intermittent strong surging stream of water hitting hub caps and car sides... along with Buddy speaking his mind.
There is a sharp ledge of rock behind me here .. I don't know why this thought enters my mind -- but each time I pass by this little house, low and close to the road-- my mind imagines a spook as we come up around the corner .. the horse cannot jump up the ledge.. so it jumps through the large picture window instead -- WHY do our minds even entertain such ridiculous thoughts ?? Because - of course in the over 20 years we've traveled by this house - no such event has even hinted at taking place. pretty ludicrous... Fortunately those thoughts never cause me to be nervous .. but it makes me question my sanity at times :) Maybe this is how a horse thinks sometimes too when they get silly over the beasts and demons morphing here and there on the side of the road or in the woods.
