When I got up at 6 am to let Hiker outside this morning it was only 45°. Got dressed and headed out for a dog walk with Jean and her dogs. She is puppy sitting a 10 week old Cockapoo named Rev. He is so cute. Hiker didn't know what to think of him. Jean had him in a shoulder bag for our walk and Hiker kept trying to see what was in the bag. When we got back to my house, we let the puppy out of the bag to play. At first Hiker was interested, but then when the puppy starting “acting like a puppy” Hiker kind of backed off. I think at first she thought he was a new toy for her since he came out of a bag (LOL). With all of Rev's jumping around and nipping, Hiker decided she wanted no part of him and she jumped up into my lap, which is something she NEVER does. Jean took her dogs home and came back about an hour later to pick me up and we headed over to Lombardi Ranch Pumpkin Patch. I have been going there every year for about the past 8 years to take photographs of their Scarecrow Alley. I have noticed that each year, the scarecrows are not as good as they were in past years. Also have noticed that the sunflower maze that the scarecrows are in are not as nice as they used to be. They all look burned and wilted. I'm thinking it's because we have been having hotter and hotter summers each year and the heat kills them. After we left the pumpkin patch, we headed over to Dairy Queen where we had planned to have lunch. I had seen commercials on TV that said DQ had $5 lunches that included a burger, fries, a drink and a small sundae. Well our DQ doesn't offer that lunch deal, so we left there without eating and headed down to Green Thumb Nursery. Jean was looking for some rose trees. She saw the they rose bushes were on sale and she thought maybe the rose trees were too, but they weren't. On our way back home, we stopped at a Carl's Jr. and had our lunch. Beautiful afternoon today. Had the doors and windows open.
