Clayton, Spenser, Scooter and Sherman: then and now.
September 21, 2009
The grass in the woods kind of got ahead of Phillip this summer. When I took the
boys out last week I could barely see them. So on Saturday Phillip went out back
with the lawn mower and created paths reminiscent of those he snow blows in the
winter. Still, Sherman managed to sneak away. I stayed at the spot where he
disappeared because that's where he tends to reappear. I waited a couple of minutes and
then heard him shrieking like he was being killed. I ran to the back of
the woods, adrenaline pumping, and did my best
to get through some very dense pricker bushes, but my arms were getting
scratched and then I saw THE TAIL. It was moving around at a frenetic
pace and the shrieking continued and I realized that this was Sherman's "I'm on the scent" screech.
And sure enough a little bit after it stopped he appeared back on the path, eager to
walk home with me.
