I discovered him here, enjoying the flora and fauna of the septic prairie. Yes, that's him!
But this is Luke's entry!
We've had a week of warm, sunny days. Luke likes to go out first thing in the morning, make his rounds to see what might have gone on since bedtime. Then he comes in for breakfast, and if I allow it (which I try not to on work days!) he goes back out for the day. He'll spend time sitting on a yard chair in the sun, or finding a cool, quiet spot under an evergreen for a nap. I've even caught him visiting in the barn a couple of times -- he never did that before Barnard moved in!
Then, after he's been out for a while, he makes his way back to the house. But just to check in before he starts more wandering!
