That's really cute, I wonder if the Beverly thought Waffle might be a calf? Does the farmer take the cow out for a walk often?

I liked the reflection of the foliage in this picture... (can you spot the kitty?)

Absolutely perfect fall weather in central MA today. Great day for a spin on the tandem in the country (and for helping my dad split some wood...).

I know. It was a cute moment. We thought perhaps Beverly extreme interest was because of Waffle's color. And perhaps, as you suspect, the color signified calf to Beverly. Beverly's dogs are black. But we can only guess.

I don't know how often the farmer takes her own. Probably not often.

Seriously, at 12:30 this afternoon it was 37 degrees F - now, it's 32 degrees and I have to deal with this. Man, not even November and I don't have the plow on the riding mower yet.

Wow scozim! First snow of the coming season! Rather soon.
It is in the upper 80s now in PHX. Nice riding weather had arrived. (wish I had one of my bikes.) :-\

Beautiful Lake Tahoe pics.

Would love to have a frame painted the beautiful blue of that lake.

I'll check both on the way home. I think the bike has a bell on the stem I might harvest.

I think there're still feet in them, if you don't mind them.

Took the AHH out for a spin over the lunch hour. Trying to get some better pics of my small collection. Yes, the AHH and Jackson are set up very much the same way. They're the ones I ride the most, and they're super comfortable and well suited for my commute.
