sunsets and musings

We live on a hill, back through the woods and in an open field. We can only see 3 neighbours. Here is a view of one of our neighbour's homes...over on the next hill. You can see their house and two of the outbuildings. Here is a close up at sunset, taken through our trees:The other two homes we can see are in the opposite direction...a little further away than these people. We do have closer neighbours, but we can't see their homes and it would be a decent walk to get to them.

I find sunsets to be calming. No matter what challenges the day brought, a beautiful sunset reminds me that tomorrow is another day. (sounds a little like Scarlett O'Hara)

We were in Halifax yesterday and we returned home to find another message on the phone saying that Cassie had been sighted (again in Mahone Bay in the very same location as before). Maybe we should go to Halifax more often. Both times we have gone in the past 9 days, we returned to have a message on our phone about Cassie. We spent the morning in Mahone Bay looking and calling, but came up with nothing. My emotions have been like a yo-yo the past few weeks...tomorrow will be the 21st day since she went missing. At this point, we are not sure that the dog in Mahone Bay is actually Cassie, but we continue to hope.

How far is Mahone Bay from you ...
and is she a dog who might have been spooked by a gun shot ?? I had a friend who's dog was very afraid of many noises, thunder, car back fires, gun shots and they lost her for weeks when she took off in a blinding fear run. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. Hope & prayers from all of us. xo Susan & les Gang

When they see her, what is she doing?
