New Assistant

Around White Lake in Muskegon County, Michigan over the last few days.

That good looking girl in the halter is Flossie, the new photographer’s assistant. Mom adopted her from Noah’s Project earlier this summer.

We have been told that Flossie is a coon hound. Whatever her lineage, she couldn’t be any sweeter…especially mellow in the house. But once she’s outdoors and gets a scent, watch out. Just like Nigel, her volume knob also goes up to eleven.

Scoring Scones

At our cabins in Whitehall, the Saturday routine is to dispatch an emissary to the Montague farmer’s market – that appointed agent’s sole duty being the procurement of cranberry oatmeal scones in sufficient quantity to outlast the morning coffee.

Most of these are from this morning’s successful mission.
