Weekly Photo Challenge-Treat


My contribution for this week’s challenge…



After several weeks of forecasting rain

it actually came last night and early this morning

At breakfast time the sky was dark …

sky_8103and the rumble of thunder could be heard…not so far away.

Which meant that peeking out to see if Maggie

was waiting for her breakfast was a formality.

maggie-sox_8106When she was let off her chain, she would not eat

her breakfast or even the treat I have given,

each morning, her since we moved.

Soxie had some of it but now returns to keep Maggie company.


With lightning flashing vividly “in our back yard”,

Maggie was happy to be treated

to one of Soxie’s head butts.

It was one less eye and ear to see and hear to storm..

maggie_8113However, the eye that could see what was going on was…

maggie_8114totally terrified and moving this way and that at a rapid pace.

Now at 0945 Maggie is still claiming ownership

to her bed and has not eaten breakfast,

even though the thunder is retreating.

It was a treat to listen to the rain.

We had 8 points in mid September and

tipped out 32 points this morning.

The first measurement for October, on average,

our wettest month.


Sorry, no links today…we are back to (slow) dial-up speed until midnight.
Don’t know how we ever used that speed and thought it good.
Software updates etc pushed us over our limit.
Will need to think about changing that..me thinks!
