After yet one more great Thomas prepared breakfast, he went to the hardware store and got some bright shiny chicken wire to augment the fences he put in the two back corners of the yard to keep Oscar out of where he is going to plant tomatoes.. Oscar didn't understand the purpose of the fence and just walked through the holes in the grid. After the chicken wire was attached to block the holes, he bumped into it and looked puzzled for a few moments. Then he got distracted, as usual, and moved onto something else.
After the list was done, I played fetch with Oscar by throwing his blue squeaky toy across the yard.. He would run like mad to get it but then thought I should chase him to get it back. I was able to regain the toy because, every time he came back, I would pick up his favourite bone and he would drop the toy to take it. Then I'd grab the toy and throw it again.
When Pam got home, we assembled another fishing expedition to the dock on the Grand Bayou Reservoir, as I now know it is called. Pam and Thomas fished while Sandy and I watched. They like to do this to decompress at the end of the day. Thomas caught one sunfish while Pam got the catch of the day. It was a piece of bark but it put up a good fight. On the way out, Sandy got a photo of a killdeer on its nest.
