Suddenly, It's the Middle of July!

 Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone, and I'm your fearless doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Well, we got through another 4th of July! Fortunately I'm not too bothered by the sound of fireworks, because our entire neighborhood was launching all kinds of them until 11pm. We could hear the low booms of the Town display, and the loud cracks of stuff the neighbors shot off. Around 10pm, a big display started in the baseball field a couple blocks over. We could see them from our house. They certainly did not look like amateurs! (Even if our photos might.)

My ghostwriter says today, with the humidity, heat, and scattered showers reminds her of summer vacation when she was a kid growing up in Niagara Falls, NY. There was no AC then, so on really hot days, she and her siblings and friends would play Monopoly, or cards, or dolls, or just read books in the cool basement. After a hard rain, they'd run outside to splash in the puddles. On cooler days, they'd ride their bikes over the Grand Island Bridge. Sometimes they'd ride across the Rainbow Bridge to Canada. 

Hey, I thought this was MY blog! 

I'll tell you what. For an extra treat, ghostwriter, you can show some pictures of the flowers that are blooming right now. 

Here are some creatures we saw recently:

Mr. Phineas Goldfinch Esq.


Spike the plecostomus at the nursing home fish tank

Woodlouse hunter spider

Japanese Beetle

My kitty cat cousins Hannibal and Tiberius watched out their window for the red tail hawks. 

We also had our Jessy human come visit us for a week! She flew in a jet all the way from Florida! Here she is with two of her siblings when they went out for a night in the City:

But now, things have returned to normal. 

I guess that's all I have to say for today. I'm going inside for a nap. 

Wait a  minute!!!!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this fast breaking news flash: There's a bunny in my back yard!!!!!!

OK. Bye!
