#dune

You’d think with summer over and a definite chill in the air that shorts and sand would be on hold until next year.

Nope. They have Rowdy’s temper to keep them warm 😳

Inspired by real life (as always) and the #inktober2020 project running on instagram. Some great daily prompts here so expect some more Rowdy&TheBobcat images relating to the random word drawing challenge through this month.

Monumental.

For those of you unacquainted with Scotland this is a major heritage site – the Wallace Monument on Abbeycraig, Stirling which reopened to the public last week.

One of the many cool things about the monument is that it has a couple of walks up to the summit, one of which (from the car park) features some very skilled sculptures on the route…including a mini-Wallace monument. William Wallace (very deceased) was reportedly well over 6 foot tall so he probably would have made short work of this ascent. But you can imagine him and his advisors looking down towards the River Forth snaking below them and planning their strategy vs Edward I of England’s troops at the infamous Stirling Bridge. The hills in the background are the Ochils but if you like hills, there’s plenty of them to see from the top.

Badger Week.

Not that Rowdy realised that it actually is Badger Week but she has retaken to the toy badger given to her by a Wootie*. The Wootie is particularly fond of brocky things.

Badgers tend only to get feisty if under attack. So given that Meghan here is squished under several pounds of eight-year-old at night, rammed against the wall, regularly drooled on and deafened by snores that could power multiple wind turbines it’s a wonder Rowdy isn’t covered in scratches. Make-believe or otherwise.

*A Wootie is what happens when an 18-month-old tries, and fails, to say ‘auntie’. And it sticks.
