Now I need to walk the dogs

Tragically it is very very hot, and  I have drunk too much beer so my dog walking is likely to be erratic.

But I typed this post eventually with all the letters in order so I think that proves I am now sober enough to be In Charge of Hounds.

Remains to be seen if I shall make it home or go to sleep in a hedge

Good luck with that! It's been hot here also for a week or two!

I made it back! I shouldn't complain about the weather really, we get more than enough rain!

What do you think the dogs would do if you went to sleep in a hedge?

I think they would go hunting rabbits. Which is in fact what they did...

But a walk takes so long when you've had a couple. Imbibe a little, and the walking is so slow, it takes so long to get home! 'Gee, that hedge sure looks comfy...'

In the end I lay on my back in a field and watched a huge cloud-dragon that spread its wings from Bodmin to Dartmoor, and then disintegrated into a cloud-archipelago floating on a sunset sea...

Until a small sharp thistle prickled me and the light faded. A huge golden moon came up. Maybe I should have just slept there.....

And awakened on the cold hillside to find that 100 years had passed? Sounds far too risky!

Hmm, good point. It's such a pain when that happens...

Especially if the cloud-dragon was a real one in disguise. This does sound like the opening of a fantasy septet or octet, a Hobbitty beginning to a quest. *perked eyebrow*

I suspect hobbits have a greater tolerance for beer than me! :-D

They have smaller mugs, though...

Walk after beer? Cruel, cruel world...

I know. But it was so hot! I drank the beer while I was waiting for the hot to wear off a bit.

I think, in this difficult for their master situation, the dogs could have offered some help:

Hahaha!

I feel that attempting anything like that with flighty sighthounds in steep Cornish lanes would certainly result in me ending up in a hedge :-D

At least, I hope you are home and safe, and it hasn't come to this:

Ha! No. Sighthounds. They don't pull people out of danger. They sleep, pose decoratively, and occasionally run about at alarming speed. Those are their tasks in life!

"They don't pull people out of danger"

At least, I hope they don't pull people into...

In fact, they are very charming, especially when they get to the beach and begin to "malfucntion"...

You need a steadfast Rottweiler or something along those lines to pull your chariot whilst the sighthounds flighty about.

I note, though, that this vehicle's seat is suspiciously devoid of owner. I suspect that, despite the dogs' pose of obliging innocence, the owner is in the river.

The photo was definitely taken near the pub. The master will come out soon, very tired, and his way home will be comfortable and honourable.

The master could as well be in the river - in case he missed the seat...

Are you in charge of them, or are they in charge of you? :D Safe journey!

I hope the hedge is comfy!
