One of the disadvantages of living in the suburbs (yes, there are many) is that my backyard backs up to another backyard. Normally, this is not a problem, as we have the oh-so-awesome rickety “privacy fence” to separate us, to sort of keep the neighborhood dogs from eating each other. Not so much though in summertime.
In summer, you see, what happens is that kids like to play in the yard-the same backyard that backs up to my backyard. And, being kids, when they play, they like to do things like jump on trampolines, hurl baseballs at each other (narrowly missing my windows) and the like. Often, they kick soccer balls over the fence. In fact, it happens so often, come summertime, that you could almost set your clock by it. Every Saturday, there is another ball to be found in the yard.
This is the first official misplaced soccer ball of summer. I found it in the yard today. Chase jumped and barked when he saw it too, he was most confused as to how it got there and, despite the fact that it’s almost bigger than he is, he tried to attack it.
I hope you have a great summer in your neck of the woods.
Until next time…
