The Pond Prepares for the Return of the Three Horsedogs of the Apocalypse...

It's time.

It's soooooo time to get back to THE POND!


Buster The Aquatic Beast, reporting on the preparations of the human lackeys to bring the little cottage in the Monadnocks up to my exacting standards!



At first, it looked familiar, warm and fuzzy...

The blue water beckoned. Oh, how it beckoned!




Lilacs blossomed along the dirt road...



Tranquility reigned while Mr. Beaver tormented the obsessive-compulsive beaver-phobic neighbors at the far-end...



The next generation of frogs grazed placidly in the shallows...


And the new stone wall curved gracefully around the back deck. All was well...


Except for the little matter of that winter ice-storm...the one that knocked those silver maples over into the water! Yes, folks, this is the underside of the root-stock; the tree extends about 90 feet beyond it.



And the ill-starred, accursed pump! La pompe est morte. Vive la pompe!

Next weekend: Observe the humans reach their respective levels of incompetence. The drama of selecting, purchasing, installing and troubleshooting an electromechanical system of breathtaking simplicity will reduce their fragile egos to the consistency of neutron plasma!


à bientôt,

Buster

Il n'y a que les humains pour vouloir du confort dans un endroit idyllique comme celui-ci....pauvres humains....

Ciao my darlingest Kerry amici and dolce Busterigo!

Your summer digs look delightful and those daily dips in the lovely blue water -- ah, heavenly! Busterigo, now that your paw is on the mend, I have no doubt you'll soon be outpacing Michael Phelps! (But please be sure to put sunblock on your adorabile nose -- you know how I fret!!)

How long do you think it will take before Signore Beaver begins to carry off bits and pieces of the fallen silver maple to his lodge????? I will stay tuned for developments....!

Tanti baci e abbracci!!!
Lucia
