Notes from underground

يارب يسوع المسيح ابن اللّه الحيّ إرحمني أنا الخاطئ

Red pylons in the sunset

A rainy Friday evening. Rain stopped play at the Centurion cricket ground on the other side of town, and then it came over here. Thunder and lightning, but not much rain.

Rain brings out weird behaviour in our dog Squiffylugs. When it’s warm and dry, she lies in a corner of the carport, like this.

When it rains, however, she lies in a much more exposed position, where she can get wet. She’s a strange dog. Maybe she thinks she’s a duck.

Then there is the electricity pylon over the road.

Most of the time it is, like most pylons, grey and dull. But this afternoon the sun broke through the clouds on the west, and lit it up with a red light.

And the same light that lit up the pylon lit up the gum tree over the road.

  1. Squiffylugs! What a fantastic name!

  2. She never learnt ear control as a puppy, so one ear sticks up and the other lies flat, and when she pricks them, they stick up at different angle’s. Shes three-quarters German shepherd and one quarter border collie.
