Taking advantage of an internet up

Hi Everyone.  Still haven't found an Internet server we can afford but we are still visiting as often as we can and leaving comments when we are allowed. 
My Vickie is in a panic, that summer is almost gone so we have been heading up to the mountains as often as we can.  So after a few whiny words from Allred,
I'll take you along on one of our hikes.
Just a short note for my Dear Nellie  I am much in need of your sweet words of care.  I know this shows a weak side of me, but a new cat moved into the area and is trying to take over my terrain.  We have had a few scuffles, and the last one left me with a huge headache and a fine sized slash in my  ear.  As you can see by my face.  I feel like, well like.....crap.....
Can you send me some special get well lovin my Queen?
Thanks Darlin.
And to those fourlegged k-9 critters out there......I may not be feeling well, but I can still "Take You Down"  'Bite Your Butts"  "Twist your noodle" get the picture.
Back with Bert:
Thank you Allred for those lovely warnings.
So now back to my hike.
first thing we saw was this gnarly old moose, his woman and a youngin.  They were a bit far from us but not too far to tell he was an old guy from the ares.  My Vickie figures he is at least 10 years old.  He is quite a site.
We saw Goose and Michelle, fishing.  But since we aren't too much for the fishin, we took a hike to see what else there was to see on this beautiful day.
Check out the water.  This is the view of the lake where we left Goose and after we had climbed some.  The leaves were starting to change to yellow ans orange.
The Maples were as red as can be.

And of course we found another lake to play in. 
Don't ya love to shake.  It is just about the only time we get to loosen up to the Max.  If you think about it when you are shaking, it is amazing to feel yourself start from one end of your body and then travel all the way to the other while you are twisting and spinning your coat releasing half a lake.  Very Cool
Michelle and Goose are just behind the layer of trees and down about half a mile. 
I would love to live up hear all year round, I truly would.
Well, I'll leave you all with a wish that you have a great weekend.  I'm off to visit some new friends at the hospital.

Hey Bert! Sorry you guys are having trouble with the internet. Were in the same boat. Actually, we're living in an RV so I guess it's not a boat! hehe!! We've missed you guys...take care :)

A beautiful time Bert! We really like the pic of you midair heading into the water. In our mind we can hear Miss Vickie yelling, "Incoming!"

Your friends,

Oh, WOWZERS! I love that picture of you diving into the lake! It's like you're putting your whole heart into it! I love that!
Such beautiful colors in your trees. Ours are just starting to change. And we don't have mooses here. I did see a sea serpent the other day, though, so that was pretty cool.
Play bows,

Sankissjuice said...

Bert my dear, you are so brave! That looks like a giant leap!!!!! Hehe. And my Allred, poor Allred. Sasa sends her sweet purrs to soothe your hurting ego. You look like a darling even in crappy mood, hehe.

Kisses to the two of you,

Oh Allred! Genji and Bibi are packing their bags, ready to come and do away with the interloper. Genji would like you to know that he may be little, but it's not for nothing that our lats house-sitters nicknamed him Gengis Khan!

As for you Bert, Tommy says he would LOVE to join you leaping into that lake!

The Cat From Hell said...

Dear Bert
Yous looks great! Fall where yous lives is so colorful.
Allred my Love,
Me sends yous lots of LOVE and healing purrs. Those young whippersnappers always thinks they can just move in and takes over by showing us their muscles. Me hopes the fights stop before somebody gets really hurt.
If he is a stray, does they does Trap Neuter Release in your area? That would stop his nasty nature.
Kisses and hugs Nellie

Superb pictures!
We're sorry poor Allred got hurt by the new kitty. We'll be purring that the cut doesn't develop into an abcess.


What magnificent colours - I am in awe. And what a flying leap you took into the lake there. (You and Toby should get together;) ).
Enjoy the beautiful Autumn weather. Hopefully the cat fights are over too.

Lydia Criss Mays said...

Bert, it's good to see you shaking and moving, friend. Love that you and Goose are romping around in that gorgeous terrain.

Allred, be careful out there.

georgia little pea said...

Dear Bert, were you feeling suicidal when you leapt up into the air like that? I hope you didn't get too wet. Oh wait, you're not scared of water are you?

Dear AllRed, suck it up cat! You can beat this intruder. BTW, The Typist is all a twitter over your ability to twist the noodle. I hope it isn't what it sounds like.

Hooroo! X
