Wordless but not

Woofless Wednesday.
We live in a duplex and after weeks of barking at prospective buyers and workmen, it was moving day.
Loads of people were wandering around and we dogs didn't get any rest.  So much to bark at and snoopervise.
At one point there was a dog in the back courtyard.
Dui was in a frenzy racing from the front window, to the backyard, side gate, and back again.
He did not want to come in last night--even at bedtime.
This morning he was out at 5 a.m.
Crazy boy.

Our frosty mornings have paid off.
The oranges have finally been bagged and ready to be sold.
It is a good little earner for the kids who live there and bag them.
After the first year, when they earned about $150 each, it has become an annual event.
 This morning, the actual table and honesty box hadn't been set up yet, but SHE spied them
under the hay--also for sale--so took a bag, wrapped a $5 note in an old receipt, wrote on it that it was for the oranges and put it in their letterbox. Because all the bags would be gone by morning.
The one at the top looks like it has an umbilical
They are Big, Sweet navels.


  1. Do you have a new friend living near you? Have fun Navel gazing

  2. Mom is drooling over those oranges - they sure do look good.

    Hope your new neighbors are nice.

  4. Oh Yummy - we love oranges!

    That's a great way for the little ones to earn some money.

    Mom picked strawberries when she was little.

  14. From your pictures I never realized you lived in a duplex. It always looked like a street of single family homes. Twenty years ago Lee was into buying a duplex with her best friend but the friend backed out at the last minute. Expensive loss for Lee as she had cash tied up in the duplex. Pray you got nice new neighbors. Love that you can get fresh oranges once a year.

    1. Living in a single family house I got Puddle's stupids for neighbors. Some days I shake my head and pray for a lightening strike.

  15. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy on the oranges.So they love frosty morns to be ready for eating!! My dad especially likes Temple oranges cause they don't have seeds.
    I hope your neighbors are okey dokey friendly...and OMCs what if they have a cat.....what ever will you do?
    Hugs madi your bfff

  16. Those oranges look yummy.
    Bertie and I live in what we call a semi-detached house, which I think is the same as a duplex(?) I've had the same neighbours all 18 years I've been here, and fortunately they are lovely!

  17. They look delicious! New neighbors huh? We bark at all new neighbors for about 2 years!

    Your Pals,
