It has been a while. There’s been a noticeable absence of a certain fellow. Where has he been? I am talking of course about our very own master of disguise Jim Lumpford. That debonair chap who just happens to possess some similarities with a chocolate Labrador. Well I can tell you he’s been mighty busy…..
During the warm weather we’ve been having over the last month, I feel that Jim has been drawn to certain places in the outdoors, which tend to ease the burden of that thick brown coat of his. Between you and me he also has a penchant for eating wild vegetation, and if you look carefully here, he’s busy trying to pretend he is Farmer Giles so as not to get caught eating the produce!
Oh there he be!
To seek out water in any of its forms. He is like a man possessed and there is a gathering of speed in those shuffling legs, as the smell of H2O wafts through the air. Oh and when he finds it there is a sigh of bliss…
Then a wallow
Then unbelievably signs that wallowing isn’t enough…..”I’m drifting, drifting” he thinks, until he drifts into a momentary snooze.
He does of course eventually crawl out of the clay sodden, mud pool he has so loved, proceeding head to tail shake.
As if that weren’t suffice to quench his thirst for the wet stuff, he continues onward through wooded dell, to happen upon a lagoon of not blue, but more brown. Here he emerges as yet another creature…..yes….
…..and in time the creature shows itself
Of course home eventually beckons and he resurfaces back on our doorstep to tell us of his tales, adventures, his life of incognito. He then drifts again toward sleep, whilst still keeping an eye out for his nemesis….
Before falling fast asleep!
Until next time y’all!
