Better Than Dunkin Donuts

I like to take a cup of coffee out to the barn in the morning. I drink part of it on the way up there (to keep it from spilling ;-) and finish it after everyone's been brought in, turned out, fed, watered, back scratched, ears rubbed...

This morning I had some fine company. Hank and I sat out by the fence and watched the sheep go about their morning business. When I finished most of my coffee, I sat the mug down for Hank.



"What's this?"



"Really."



"So you drink this stuff?"



"Mmmm - coffee" (Doesn't that look like a smile?)



And a Macro Monday find on the way in. If you view the picture this way, it looks like that fourth leaf is hiding, but if you turn it 90 degrees to the left, it looks like it's shouting "Me! Me! I'm here! See?"



A little good luck for everyone this morning.

Hank probably only needs the caffeine at night and nothing past 8AM ;-)
The four leaf clover is a welcome sight today. You have such a good eye for finding them. Thanks for sharing your good luck with us!

You can really see how YOUNG Hank is in these photos! What a sweet, wonderful dog to take on so much responsibility in a strange new home , at such a young age. I saw your tweet about him sleeping between Wooliam and (I can't remember the other one). I bet he'll work things out ~ with a little guidance from his mistress!

I'm using a Nikon D40x for most of my photos. I love that camera.

RB aka Rebecca Boone is the colored Cotswold from Nistock Farms out of NY.

I love Hank. What a perfect name he has. So rugged and masculine. Just like him.
