The Blog Is Back In Action


I guess maybe I only needed a break from blogging. It's been around 37 or 38 days since the last post here where I announced the blog was over. It might be time consuming but I enjoy writing and I enjoy taking photos of the hounds. My problem is only internal as I fight my own demons of obligation and 'all or nothing' type of feelings. So we will be back to posting again, maybe only photos for a while, may not be every day ... we will see how it goes.


These are photos from as far back as May 28 and in order they were taken if Blogger placed them as they usually do, in sequence from the oldest to the newest photo. I have rebuilt the blog sidebar and re-labeled it as just a reading list since there are some websites mixed in that are not blogs. A new site I have added is Fact Checker ... a legit site that seems to be honest and can separate what is fake news and the actual facts.


If you think of other blogs I have had there that you followed but don't see them let me know. I know that I am missing some of the old ones. Maybe my memory cells can align later and I can remember them.







Sadie did some 'sparrow chasing' ... but Stella is just taking it easy and trying to survive the heat.


















My friend's Mini ... named "Boogie" ...


All the hounds are good. Sadie turned 10 years old in June. Heidi is back to her hot summer hibernation and only goes out long enough after a meal to relieve herself. Stella loves the AC and Sadie doesn't care how hot it is, she wants to walk twice per day.

I'll catch up more later in the coming days ... nothing major has happened. All is good in retirement.

    1. Thanks. I guess there are times where you feel too much time is spent blogging but if you enjoy writing and taking photographs, those three things seem to tie together. I didn't think I was returning this time but I knew that people like seeing the photos I take and even a couple enjoy my rambling. Still in 'the tropics'.

    1. Thank you Mary. I guess I may have needed just a blog vacation instead of a total shutdown.

    1. I'm sure there is one in your house that is happy with their return. You might warn him though that it's hotter than normal and Heidi is in severe hibernation mode and Stella is moving slower than ever, if that is even possible. Any action shots of her will be in slow motion.

  8. So happy you and the hounds are back! Noticed the field has been cut and rolled, Heidi out in the sunshine and of course Sadie and Stella doing their thing.
    Thanks for coming back.

    1. Thanks. They cut the field early this year and although it was looking good before they cut it, they did not get the normal amount of hay this year. Heidi makes it out in the sunshine twice per day but that's about all for her. The bloodhounds ? ... never change.

      You're welcome.

  9. I kept telling myself that "he's never going to quit blogging," as I checked everyday for something NEW! LOL

    Wouldn't you know that the day you 'came back' was the first day I did not check?

    Glad to see you and the pups back! :-)

    1. I guess I need to come to that conclusion, that I'll never stop. I mean how many times have I quit or deleted this blog ?? LOL

      I think the hounds are happy to be back in the limelight of fame.
