October rolls onward, with long hours every weekend... hence the spotty posting. I'm holding down the fort pretty well, but some of us are out on a limb:
That's my co-worker Ginger, who likes to climb, but loses interest fairly rapidly. In this instance, she climbed onto a tree limb which was just a little too high for her comfort, then she wanted down in a big way. I stood underneath the tree coaxing her to jump into my arms, but she wasn't having any of that.
I had to walk off, much to her dismay (she's ordinarily very vocal, and she cried piteously while I walked off, leaving her stuck on the limb), in order to find a plank that was big enough for her to feel secure jumping down onto. I wasn't gone too long, and she was able to make her way down to terra firma with a minimum of fuss afterwards. Hopefully, any problems this month will be remedied with such ease!
