Across from the house is this beautiful Cherry tree that has just turned red. I took a picture of it the other day when it wasn't raining. It started raining last night...thank goodness for we have had a long dry spell. I am going to try and get some more pictures of the trees changing to show you where our color is at. It varies quite a bit from one side of the mountain to the other.
Our peace and quiet was broken all week with road work on Leetonia Rd. They are putting down 6 more inches of gravel and doing work on the culvert in front of the house. The constant dump truck traffic is not a welcome sound in the mountains. The dogs however seem to enjoy visiting with the workers as they arrive each morning. The "vicious Pit Bull", is
ruining the mean reputation of all Pit Bulls by his eager noiseless greeting, followed by his insistence of being petted by all workers. To tell you the truth I have never owned a Pit Bull that was at all protective against people. They don't care much for other animals invading their turf, but they love people. Scooter is just as lovable and they both push each other away for a simple pat in the morning.
I always think it is so funny that people are scared of Leo the Pit Bull, who is the biggest baby in the world. But it is nice to have a dog that you don't have to worry about biting people and yet still has the same effect of keeping people who don't belong here from poking around.
If it don't rain all week they should be done with the road and that will be a welcome return to silence for the Mountain Girls. Mountain girl, Paula, logging out.
