I took the dogs out chasing the ball last night.  As usual, Xena grabbed it and ran on ahead to hide it.  She does this too well.  Centuries from now, if archaeologists excavate this place, they’re going to think it was a tennis court.

Here’s the problem.  The ball isn’t far off the path, under some trees.  Can you see it in this interesting study of textures?

How about now?  It’s almost in the center.

I eventually got back to the house with it.  We’ll try to lose it again tonight, to the dogs’ delight.

It’s too early for all of those dead leaves; another effect of the drought.  Thank goodness, summer’s at last drawing to an end.  We’re supposed to have another heat wave this weekend, but the heat’s reign is growing shorter.  Everyone is more than ready for fall weather . . .

And maybe rain.
