Dear blog readers,
Please excuse my unannounced absence last week. Mom came out to visit while John was off at a bachelor party, and we had a very busy weekend. I feel like I may as well link to what I posted after Jennifer left in December. The situation was much the same – less cooking and knitting, more quilt shops, but either way, a whirlwind of busy-ness.
And again … we went to visit the awesome alpacas.
This time, Max was with us, so the alpacas were extremely attentive. Max made little whimpering noises at them, and they made strange squawking ones back at him.
But I don’t think they were afraid; they all walked closer to us, instead of freezing in fear or running away. I really think they were as curious about Max as he was about them.
It was slightly disconcerting that, since they all could hear Max, or see him, or sense him, they stared in our direction continuously.
And then there was this guy.
This was one of the first shots I took, before they noticed Maxwell. (And certainly before he had noticed them.) I can’t remember the exact sequence of things, but I do wonder if this guy was the first to become aware of him.
What do you think: gasp of surprise, or just an innocuous yawn?
Thank you for your patience; I will try to resume normal blogging, although the wedding I’ve mentioned before is coming up next week, and things might be quite busy for us between now and then!
