I like the Search box on WP Blogs for all the obvious reasons. It allows me to locate an earlier Post, and allows you to search based on specific parameters. It is always interesting (and often surprising) to see just how many Posts are listed as a result of a single word search.
Ever since Ray moved in with us, one of his regular walk routes has taken us past a government run building that has a large grass area in front. At sometime in its history, that grass area was separated from the public sidewalk by a row of closely planted evergreen trees however, we have only ever seen a few isolated ones. Tree stumps are the only reminders that there were many more in earlier years.
On our walk yesterday, we noticed that one particular stump was on the grass, and a few feet away from a hole which we assume was its original location. How it got there was a bit of a puzzle.
The stump was quite small and had minimal roots attached which, given the years that it was in the ground rotting, was not a surprise. What did surprise us a little was Ray’s interest in the tree stump. He checked all around it, possibly picking up scents of other animals, and then he very deliberately turned and straddled it!
This was a little precarious for him because it only just fitted within his four feet which were on the grass, and was an inch or two below his under-body. At the moment when we realized what he was doing… he did it!
He edged himself forward just enough so that his rear was over the tree stump, and then he pooped! One stool fell off and onto the grass, but another two landed perfectly! At least he chose a visible location, and they were easy to pickup, but why over a tree stump?
Back to the first paragraph of this Post, if you use the search term “Poop”, you will see a remarkable number of Posts being listed as a result! I am not sure whether that tells you something about Ray’s creativity with bodily functions, or my lack of creativity when writing Posts. I think I will stop here!
