By the time I took this photoooo, I had gotten up, eaten a half-bowl of Cheerios, saddled up the Ninja and droven it to GB. I parked the Ninja in Dogmomster’s garage, transferred my crap into her vee-hickle, we drove through the Starbuck’s drive-thru and got on to the I75 SUV Speedway. The guys had their noses just a wee bit outta joint with me in the front passenger seat. They tend to switch places, one in the front and one in the back on trips north. They have a way of communicating when the time is right that the rest of us don’t totally understand. They were foiled on this trip by my presence in the front seat but anyway, here is Alfarooney, the Birch Point Osprey Treat…

We eventually got to this loverly old gateway to the yooperland, before which you had to take a ferry.

Ernie and Alfred perk up like crazy when they get to this bridge. Of course, I was told that they went a little nuts when the Ninja started up their street this morning and they haven’t seen me in months. Dogs are smart. Most of them. Except when they’re not. <grin> And then we got to our final destination.

It was hazy out in the bay and we could smell woodsmoke. It is very very very dry this year and there are forest fires in the yooperland. We don’t have one near our beach (knock on wood big time) but the wind is blowing smoke here from several fires. One near Seney, one near Tahquamenon, and a third north of Sault, Ontario. This morning, the smoke was so bad that the GG and Lizard Breath called the DNR Forest Service to ask where there were fires and also walked / drove around the area to make sure there were no fires on our near our property. There were / are no fires but we are doing a rain dance. No lightning please!

I am dead taaarrrred and there is work to do tomorrow. Good night. Sleep tight.

    Very lovely!! Dogs have amazing instincts and memory–but I’m not too sure about intelligent. 😉 Not a dog lover myself.
