We live in a tiny neighborhood and only residents of three houses pass our driveway. Papa was home one morning and got all fired up about a teenage two-legger doing about 40mph on our virtually single lane gravel road. I'll spare you the details but aside from getting that taken care of with his parents, he got a gate up within hours. (Mom has been asking for this gate since we moved in.... back in 2002!) She was SO happy! Papa just had the materials lying around in one of the sheds.
Haha... just teasing.
Papa did some reading on the automatic gate openers and all the trouble they cause so he rigged up a pulley system, since mom is so
Then they park the car and walk over and close it so we can't saunter down the driveway to go visiting. Phoenix is completely unable to chase cars if the mood ever strikes her, as it used to when she first came to live with us... Cali sticks her face through the gate for treats from the delivery people but can't jump in their trucks... and I.... well, mom suspects I know how to open the gate but I'm not saying for sure. I did say they're in the testing phase so we'll see!
Not only are we blocked from the driveway, papa put up rolls and rolls of fencing!! Ms. Lisa the Crazy Cat Lady will be excited to know that we're now that much closer to being ready for goats! But my outdoor doggie friend Jackie will miss my visits since I can no longer walk under the fence to her yard. The back has always been on lock down but now the front is too. You probably have to click to make the picture larger to see the tiny fencing but it's there. I promise.
Oh well. Mom's happy because we're safe so that makes me happy. I guess. I'm pretty smart so I may find a way out of this prison - stay tuned! In fact, I was busy inspecting the perimeter all weekend so I'm late getting to your blogs. I'm making my rounds now, please excuse my tardiness! Did I miss anything exciting?
