Hallelujah - The Dog Days Are Over

The dog days of summer have thankfully gone. At first, I thought we had skipped the 80's altogether and just hoped straight into the 70's, but this week has brought the 80's back in style....we'll revisit this later. ;)

With the cooler temps, the dog, who avoids the dog-days like the plague, refuses to come inside. See how he's even ignoring my taking his picture?
Ah, the dog. His name is Gibson and he's been alternately blamed for tomato eating and lettuce eating. We've come to know Gibson fondly through the almost two years I've been blogging on the garden.....Two years, huh? Two years and all you know my children by are the terms, "The Boy" and "The Girl." I think the time has come to change that. My friends, here are my children.

Luke Skywalker:
and Daphne.

Yes, the 80's are back in style!
Mom, you can start breathing again.
The morning comes early. May the Scooby Snack Force be with you.


  1. Daphne rocks! We are having temps around 80-81 here this week, nice because there is no humidity, but I enjoy it dipping down into the 50s at night!

  2. Too funny! Do you remember Mrs. "uhWiggins from" the Carol Burnett Show?

  3. Awesome. My son loves Scooby Doo too.

    I wish our dogs enjoyed the outdoors as much as yours does! They beg to come inside even when it's beautiful outside!

  4. Daphne may rock, but I think Velma's got some secrets, yet.

    Thomas, I just can't wait for her to take Gibson Trick or Treating...He's a Great Dane and perfect to play Scooby!!!

  5. Your son and my youngest son would be great buddies. He is a Star Wars fanatic!
