Wash After the Fire

Starting out.

Lady and Lucifer racing.

Can you find all five dogs?

Road dips down to the wash toward the right.

A surprising touch of green amid the desolation.

This was my favorite vista along the wash. I was always going to paint it...
good thing I took pictures. ;-\

Ellen and Loki take a water break.

Utter desolation.

Bill contemplates the view along the wash. Bushes should have hidden him from the camera.

The camera had a great deal of trouble focusing in all this sameness.

Yes this picture is in color.

More ashen sameness.

Steph among the trees.


Jolly wants a cookie.

No I'm not happy at the vista -- I just take lousy posed pictures. The white on the ground is ash, not sand. Loki is helping me check it out.

Those used to be trees.

Bill, Bo (the horse), Jolly (the goat), Jan & Steph (petting Jolly) check out the damage -- note the fire came right down to the fence.

Red barn (where Jan lives greathall-style), green grass, black hills. Awesome color contrast.

Unjolly Jolly

Jolly was attacked by a couple of stray dogs about a week ago. He seemed to be healing fine, trotting around and eating hay, but closer examination showed he was more seriously injured than anyone thought.

After a midnight trip to the vet, he's now on serious antibiotics and doing better. And he has a nifty accessory.

Be warned -- some of it is not pretty.

Jolly is now sporting this nifty new harness, courtesy of Ariadne.

Spin, Span, Spun

See Eichling spin.

That's why they call it a drop spindle.

Fluff and stuff.

The impliments of torture.
