There’s been a new guy in town this past week. A little beagle has been hanging around. He sports a raggedy collar, so we don’t know if he belongs to somebody or not. He’s as skinny as I am not, so I suspect he’s one of the unfortunates that some hunters run for a season and then abandon so they won’t have to feed them over the winter. Or he could just be lost.
He’s a cute little feller, and our next-door grandson has fallen in love with him. The trouble is, he won’t stay put! I’m not sure if tying him up would be reassurance that we really do want him around or if it would constitute kidnapping.
I’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, speaking of posting — and kidnapping — I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about Ross MacDonald’s THE MOVING TARGET and finding prices of the past.
