My final days here at Tamarac are winding down, and today the staff took me out for lunch at Ice Cracking Lodge. I had to have one last Thunder Burger.
Fall is definitely arriving in northern Minnesota with high temps today only in the 50’s and a predicted low for tonight down into the 30’s. Brrr! Time to move on. I spent the chilly dreary morning restocking the kiosks one last time. Had to run the heat in the truck rather than the AC to be comfortable.
I’ve taken down the hummingbird feeders and packed them away. Just about all of the hummers have headed south, and if there are some that haven’t, they had better be on their way. I do a little more packing up each day.
As I was pulling the hummingbird feeder poles out of the ground this evening, the new intern, Morgan, asked if she could take Emma with her for a little run. My answer, “You Betcha!” So off they went down the hill.
I’ve felt kind of bad that I haven’t been able to give Emma the proper amount of exercise with my back problems for some time. Emma has always been willing to go off with anyone for an adventure. No separation anxieties in that dog!
It suddenly sprung off to get back into the woods.
And here’s the reason why. Emma and Morgan were returning after a five mile run.
Emma picked up the scent of the deer and really would have wanted to go after it, I’m thinking.
Morgan kept her in tow though, and Emma came back to the rig wonderfully worn out. How nice of Morgan to give Emma this special treat. I’ve never been a runner, and envy anyone that can just go run five miles. Thanks Morgan. We both appreciate it!
As you might guess, Emma is zonked out for the night. I’m hoping to bundle up in the morning, and do my last half day of mowing here. Arizona is calling me…
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
