Yesterday Rie wondered if I was driving to my land in Kansas today because even though Bacon was still a little gimpy from last week's adventure, he was getting restless for another one. Rie found out that Costco parking lots are no substitute for the outdoors once a dog has turned country.
And so it was on. Sunday afternoon in Kansas. Not Sunday afternoon in Missouri cleaning the kitchen and the rest of the filthy house like how I had sort of planned.... getting outdoors was too compelling and when we got to Kansas, Rie and Burgess and Bucky and Bacon and I got there at the exact same time. We met at the intersection. :-)
Bucky is always good when it comes to water (that's what I've heard and that's what I've seen).
She's a very good mermaid for being such an old girl.
But Bacon? Today was a big day because Bacon figured out where all the good shallow spots in the creek were and has now officially become unafraid of water.
Almost. He's still not comfortable when water comes down from the sky. On the drive out Bacon had to drive through a short storm. But me? I only saw great big clouds against a bright blue sky when I was driving.
The clouds today were just astonishing. Every time I rounded a curve or reached the top of a hill, all I could think of was WOW. There aren't any good places to stop on a 65 mph rural highway with ditches bordering each side but I tried my best....stopping right on the highway and taking a quick picture before revving up as fast as possible before another car appeared behind me.
I took this picture at a stoplight though. That is not an explosion made in a construction zone, that's just a cloud, a great big cloud. Really big. Crazy big.
These clouds gently arc-ed their way over the trees in a wispy Van Gogh sort of way.
I don't know why this one was all stretched out while the clouds behind it were sorting themselves into a line of cotton balls. What kind of weather was going on up there?
Drama. How else to describe this ridiculous amount of cloudage?
When I got back to Kansas City, the clouds were all over the horizon, in front of me, behind me, both sides of me and above me...just big white clouds everywhere I looked. That directional sign needs a few more arrows if it wants to be accurate.
