Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
A Rude Awakening

The day began cold and early, with icy rain lashing The Rural Retreat and Pandora clawing my toes, eager to see what all the noise was about.
Much of the noise was caused by water cascading from a blocked gutter, which necessitated a deal of swearing and prodding, first from the ground, later from the bedroom window. One day we'll buy a ladder. At least it amused the two hundred geese who flew overhead while I worked – every one of them seemed to be laughing at me.
The good news is that the flow of water through the downspout resumed; the bad news is that further wintry weather expected overnight and tomorrow could overwhelm it again soon. And I've not even looked in the gutters at the back of the cottage. Being surrounded by trees does have its down side.
Otherwise it's been a quiet day. The Pride continues to play musical beds, which is why The Foot Fetishist happened to be snapped in the one yesterday occupied by Willow. There's some ear movement visible, because of the slow shutter speed, but how could I delete that face?
