31/Jul/17 is it winter yet? I'm hot.

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

WOW, over 16,000 blog views.

Did I tell you that the Big Guy was trimming the hedges?  He was.  I've been trying to chew on the hedges as much as possible.  Tonya said that she would like to see the hedges gone.  I'm not sure what she would put in it's place.  

But the Big Guy hit a wire with his hedge trimmer.  Now it makes a funny noise when it's running.  I'm sure he will look at the hedge trimmer and see if anything got bent.  If it is not able to be fixed, well he has two other hedge trimmers.  Imagine that, the guy has THREE hedge trimmers.

Yesterday I got a ham bone.  It wasn't a huge bone either.  Tonya did a boiled ham up.  After she cut the meat off the bone, I got to have the bone that was left inside it.  It was yummy.  It is still on the deck.

At one point, they also made the Cherry Cheesecake.  One of them didn't eat it all.  I got to have some of it in over my kibble.  Well, I can understand why they love this so much.  It was really good!

We went for a walk last night.  Bailey seen me and jumped up on the door to look at me in her front yard.  I would almost think she misses me.  I know I think of her often.  Something "clicked" in the Big Guy's knee and the walk got cut short.  It's kinda weird.  He has to walk farther to build up the strength in his knee, but it also hurts him when he does walk farther.  It's a vicious circle.

When they got home, he only wanted to put his knee up.

They had fireworks last night. It lasted 7 minutes.  I wasn't scared of the fireworks.  It was loud, but other than that, I wasn't scare.  It got really loud at the end.  The fireworks are part of Bar Town Days celebrations.  Tonya said if it wasn't for the tree across the street, we could have seen them.

Yesterday the Big Guy made a mess with the water under the cupboard.  He eventually got it all fixed up.  But he wasn't too happy.  He said that he broke the cold water fitting.  I bet he is super glad it wasn't the hot water he was screwing with.  He did a post on Facebook about it.

Bye bye for now.

30/Jul/17 groom me baby

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Yesterday, after our walk, we spent some time on the front deck cooling off.  Tonya went inside and got my brush to remove some of my loose fur.  Otherwise, I just fill up the house with my fur that I'm dropping EVERYWHERE!

After we were done that, the Big Guy decided it was time to trim the front hedges.  Then it was the side hedges.  Then it was the tree that is next to the house.  Then he took out his lawn tractor and mowed the lawn.  Did you see on Facebook, where Tonya was driving his lawn tractor around?  She said that she didn't want to go too fast as she didn't want to tip over.

During yesterday's walk, I went to see if Bailey was outside, but she wasn't.  But the Big Guy remembers their owner saying, if they weren't outside, they were not going to leave Bailey outside.  Right now, she is in heat and the male dogs are dropping by to say "hello".

After they were done that, they went to the Bras d'Or Lakes where I got to go in the water again.  Banting was there and I got to play with her.  There was a bunch of other people that showed up and I got to shake water all over them.  Now THAT was fun!  Not so much for them.

All those people that went in the water, they were being pulled out by the tide.  That meant they had to swim back again.

You will have to click on the picture to see them, WAY off in the background to the left.

It's supposed to rain this morning.  But this afternoon, it's supposed to be nice again.  I guess we will see if it gets nice or not.

Tonya wants to make a boiled ham today.  That means that I could possibly be getting a ham bone this afternoon.  I can't wait.  When they see that I'm being too aggressive with the bone and or splintering pieces off the bone, they take it away from me.

Bye bye for now.

29/Jul/17 did someone say "cheese"

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

It's early morning and the Big Guy is always taking my photo.  Flash, flash, flash.  Always with the flash camera.

So yesterday, Tonya and the Big Guy had me out for my longest walk yet.  2.1 km.  His knee was pretty sore when they got home.  But he did it.  If you notice int he picture, it looks like they got lost for a bit when they were on Commercial St.  That was because we were in Brewer's Convenience and the satelites couldn't really locate them that well.

But it was nice to get home again.  I had a BIG drink of water.  I was so thirsty after that walk.

Today, we are supposed to get some showers.  Not a lot of rain, but rain none the less.  Then tomorrow, just rain.  Again, not a lot of rain, but rain none the less.

Tonya and the Big Guy went to the family reunion.  They said it was fun.  Not for me though.  I got to spend my time in my kennel.  So far, I still can't be trusted outside my kennel.  I like to eat stuff.  But that's because I am separated from them and I get so anxious.

I heard the Big Guy say something about Cauliflower nachos.  He can get weird about some of his cooking.  I probably will not get any.

Well I think I heard the Big Guy cracking some eggs.  I wonder what he's making for breakfast.

Bye bye for now.

28/Jul/17 the paper bag didn't stand a chance

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Yesterday Tonya was taking stuff out of a paper bag.  I got the bag and I had it over my head.  Tonya thought this was so funny.  She tried to get me with the bag over my head again.  Here is the video results.

As you can see, the bag didn't stand a chance.

After we had fun cleaning up the ripped up piece of paper bag.  That is when Tonya decided that this wasn't as funny as she thought it would be.

The Big Guy put the garbage outside this morning.  When he was doing that, there was a BIG mouse that was running across the street.  It may have been in the green big and when the Big Guy was moving the bin, the mouse decided to make good on his escape.

Last night, they had chicken and decided to throw out the bones to the birds.  Which is all good and fine.  But then Tonya wanted to go sit outside.  But the bones were also outside.  The Big Guy said, unless she threw the bones further away, were not going outside.  So they watched TV instead.  

The Big Guy was pretty happy to watch this TV series called Top Gear.  He is almost up to season 4.  Only 20 more seasons to go.  Then there are other series that spun off because of it.  Top Gear US.  Top Gear Russia.  Top Gear Australia, to name a few.  Tonya is not amused.

Well I should go back to sleep for a bit.  It's going to be a LONG day.  They got the McCarthy Family Reunion to go to later on.

Bye bye for now.

27/Jul/17 please meet my future partner

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

This is Bailey.  I am going to be breeding with her.

We get along great.  Her body language says that she approves of me.  But it's isn't breeding time just yet.

The Big Guy was researching stuff and apparently the female Bernese Mountain Dog can be breed after their second heat.  So perhaps sooner than later.  He also read that males are pretty much born ready.  That would be me, ready to get some.

I was so happy to see Bailey.  I think that the parade got her outside.  It was the Bar Town Parade yesterday.  Tonya and the Big Guy only got home when the parade was ending.  They could have waited at one corner, but that would have been 40 minutes or more for the parade to come back.  They hope that next year, perhaps we could be walking in the parade.  The parade is 3 km long.  Boy oh boy, if we go, I better poop first.

So far, the Big Guy is up to 1 1/2 km on his walks.  3 km, and I know his knee would be REALLY sore.  I think he would have to take some pain pills before he went on this walk.  BUT by next year, he should weigh a lot less.  So perhaps he will be able to walk much father than that.

I will get to spend most of my day with Tonya and the Big Guy tomorrow.  They have some sort of family gathering to go to and I am NOT invited.  Am I not part of their family?  This SUCKS.  I heard that they are going to have pot luck supper.  The Big Guy is wondering how much potatoe, pasta and vinegar is going to be at this supper.  Two items he has pretty much removed from his new way of eating and the third, well, he isn't a big fan of the third item, but he knows that there is people out there that will drink pickle juice.  YUCK!  I am sure he will have some sort of plan.

Bye bye for now.

26/Jul/17 WHAT do you want

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Last night, after our big walk and then they had supper, Tonya wanted to go sit outside.  So off they went and sat outside.  To me, it's still warm outside, but to them, they were cold.  Can you imagine, being cold outside at +16.  What are they doing to do when Winter comes back?

By the looks of the lawn, the Big Guy better be thinking about mowing the lawn.  It is starting to grow again.  I know that's what it's supposed to do.  But still, he likes to keep his lawn neatly trimmed.  Someone across the way, well, they only seem to mow their lawn about twice a year.

There was a water main break down the street from us.  Well, not just down the street, but way down the street from us.  Someone's house had close to 10 feet of water in the basement and they don't have house insurance.  They believe that the city is at fault and should pay for the damages.

Bailey wasn't outside last night.  BUT I did get to see another pure breed Bernese Mountain Dog.  I can't remember her name.  I think it was Heidi.  Oh and she is such a beauty.  They were going to the Food Festival that was being held downtown last night.  I wasn't allowed to go there as the Big Guy says that I still jump up too much.  

Sure enough, on the walk home, there was three ladies walking towards us.  One was fawning over me, so I jumped up on her.  She wasn't expecting that.

Then there was another group walking down the street.  I didn't jump, but I did want to be patted.  So I lunged.  Well that REALLY scared that lady.  She let out a little yell.

Bye bye for now.

25/Jul/17 are you looking at me

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Every morning, the Big Guy chases after me with that camera.  What would he do if that camera broke?  He would probably borrow Tonya's cell phone and use that.  He does take a lot of pictures of me.

So tell me, gentle reader, do you enjoy my pictures every day?

So the other day, the Big Guy was going to make his ribs on the charcoal BBQ.  But in the end, Tonya asked him to make them in the oven.  Which he did.  They ate some of the ribs and then, after supper, the Big Guy took the meat off the bones and put the meat in some containers and put it in the fridge.  So last night, they were having rib meat with a ceasar salad.

I could smell the rib meat.  Oh and didn't it smell delicious.  Tonya gave me a little piece that she thought was too fatty.  She put it in my bowl.  The Big Guy gets after her for feeding me from the dinning room table.

We went for our normal, longer walk last night.  They were hoping to get a picture of Bailey.  But she wasn't outside.  I ran up on her property, as I could smell her, but she wasn't there.  They have another dog, he isn't all that friendly.

There are other dogs that are outside.  They bark a lot when they are in their yard.  Then again, I do as well.  Just like they do, I show them that this is MY yard.

Tonya has some feral cat shelters that are in the back yard.  But their feral cats have stopped showing up.  Probably cause I am in the yard now.  If anyone needs a shelter, they are here for the taking.

Bye bye for now.

24/Jul/17 the kitchen tiles are so cool to the touch

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

When the Big Guy gets up in the morning, it's always him moving about for a bit.  Getting the coffee ready and a few other things.  Then he settles down in front of the computer to write his Mum her morning email.  They write each and every day and really haven't missed a day in about 15 years or so.  There used to be a time when my non-furry grand mum was on dial up internet.  That meant if you sent her a picture, it could take 20 minutes or more for it to go through.

Yesterday, the ribs were NOT made on the charcoal grill.  I am pretty sure that the Big Guy would have done them there too.  But Tonya said that it's SO much easier to make them in the oven.  Which is true.  And they were good.  I got to have one rib bone.  But they had HUNDREDS of ribs bones...  and I got one.  Oh well, it was good while I got to have it.

Tonya told the Big Guy that she wants the front hedge clean up a bit.  It is pretty sorry looking.  But it is a plant and plants will grow.

Last night, Tonya and the Big Guy went to sit outside.  They didn't stay outside too long.  It got really cold for them, really quick after the sun went down.  They had to put on jackets.  Me, I don't have to wear a jacket.

Tonya picked up a lot of my fur yesterday.  She said that she could build two dogs with the amount of fur that I've dropped.  They need to brush me more.  I am loosing last years fur and growing new fur.  Once I am brushed, I look so nice.  Even MORE handsome, if that's possible.

We went for a walk and brought our camera, just in case Bailey was outside.  She wasn't.  They seemed really sad about this.

Bye bye for now.

23/Jul/17 laying on the deck, enjoying the shade

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Yesterday I got to spend the WHOLE day with the Big Guy and Tonya.

They FORCED me to wear those damn doggles again.  They said that if I wear them more often, I will get used to them.  We will see about that.

Yup, that's me, being a cool dude

What's that you say?  I'm handsome?  Of course I am!

Pilot to pretty doggies.  Prepare for handsomness.

OK, I will take my picture with you.

Can I take the doggles off now?

The two of them brushed me.  You should have seen the fur that came off me.  There was enough fur to build two small dogs.

Later on, they had BBQ'ed hamburgers, without the bun and they had cole slaw along with that.  What did I have?  Well I had kibble and water.  No burger for me.

I heard the Big Guy saying that they are going to have ribs today.  BBQ'ed ribs.  The Big Guy takes most of the day to make these ribs.  There is a lot of sitting around waiting while those ribs are being cooked.  Then I hear them smacking their lips as they are eating the ribs.  I would like some ribs too ya know...

We will see what adventures await me today.

Bye bye for now.

22/Jul/17 Thunderbolts and Lightening, very very frightening

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

We had a lot of thunder and lightening yesterday afternoon while I was home, alone in my kennel.  It wasn't so bad though.  The fan was on, blowing fresh air towards my face.

When Tonya got home, she let me outside and I went into my pool on the deck.  The water was right up to the top of the pool.  So the rain we got, filled up my little pool.

It was thunder and lightening, with some rain again last night.  But not so intense as yesterday afternoon.

Last night, Tonya and the Big Guy had a BBQ.  They started off by parking the car away from where I can reach.  Then rolled the BBQ out into the back yard, in the grass, again, away from where I could reach.  But I kept getting into EVERYTHING that I could get into.  I even went under the stairs.  That was it.  They put me on the deck and they moved everything back to the deck so that I would be near them while they BBQ'ed their steaks.

The Big Guy said it was because I just couldn't help myself.  I had to explore.  I had to see what was under those stairs.  I had to get into the hole that I dug last year.  The Big Guy has been putting the ashes from his BBQ to fill in that hole.  Well it's smells GREAT!  I just had to touch it with my paw.  Were talking messy mess.

I think that Geoff and Odin are back in town for a visit.  I hope that I can get to see my brother.

Bye bye for now.

21/Jul/17 I'm a tired little doggie

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Yesterday they were having computer issues where Tonya and the Big Guy work.  So the Big Guy was sent home to work here.  I was REALLY happy to see them.  He wasn't allowed to come play with us on the deck.

Tonya emptied my pool, washed it out and filled it up again.  I walked around my pool, cooling my paws off.  

But as soon as the Big Guy was done work, we took off for Bras d'Or Lakes.  This time, Tonya went into the deep water and I tried to follow her.  It wasn't pretty, but I was swimming.  

Did you ever see someone trying to swim for the first time?  They thrash about in the water a lot and you really don't want to be too close to them.

Well the same for me.  I tried to climb up on top of Tonya.  I scratched her up a lot.  I didn't mean to hurt her, but I was scared of being in the water over my head.

Of course they left their camera at home.  Isn't that always the way?

I went into the water a lot and I got to poop on the beach!  Tonya picked it up and brought it home with us.

When we got home, we went for a walk.  The Big Guy doesn't go swimming in the salt water.  He only likes swimming pools.  He said that the ocean has salty water cause the fish have sex in the water.  They pee and poop in the water as well.

Bailey wasn't outside, so I didn't get to see her.  I was sad about that.  But since I was getting all this exercise, the swimming and the walk, I was pretty tired.

Bye bye for now.

20/Jul/17 Fe Fi Fo Fum little bug on the deck, going to eat 'um

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

I am looking at this little bug that is on the deck.  I am trying to figure out if I should eat it or not.

Did you get to see my video of me in the Bras d'Or Lakes?  Here is it:

Did you see me looking for the rocks underwater?  I finally seen why I wasn't getting any views on my video, the Big Guy didn't make it public.  He can be so dumb about stuff.

Oh well, it's fixed now.  I hope you enjoyed it.

Did you know, that just about every time I go for a walk...  I poop.  Then Tonya will pick up my poop and bring it home with us.  She will put it in a bag that we have at home.  Then my poop gets all picked up by a team of guys on this big truck and they take it away.  My poop must be some special.  I've seen other poop just laying around and drying up while we are out for our walks.  That poop can't be special at all.

I got to see my Girlfriend again.  Bailey, how my heart goes out to you.  You let me sniff you.  You jumped up and licked the Big Guy.  I didn't mind sharing him with you.  Your fur is so soft.  Sigh...

Bye bye for now.

19/Jul/17 on route to the Dog Park

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

The Big Guy took the kennel barrier and has it in the car.  He uses 2 bungie cords to attach it to the front seats.  This keeps me safe in the back of the car.  Otherwise, I tend to want to get in the front seat like any lap dog.  If the barrier isn't in place, they will open the sun roof and I will stick my head outside the car.  This gets a lot of laughs from people driving around.

But yesterday, the barrier was in place, so no sun roof for me.

When we got to the dog park, there was only 4 dogs there.  One lady was frightened of my size and took her doggie home.

Emily was at the wrong place and had to contacted so that they could get to the correct place for the dog park.  We must have played for about an hour.

Did you like how I slid into home base?  That was exciting.

When they came home, they had some chicken pieces and did NOT share.  I would share my kibble with them anytime they wanted some.

So Banting has gone home for a bit.  She will be back at the end of the month and I may go swimming at the Bras d'Or Lakes with Banting.

Banting has an electric training collar.  The Big Guy and Tonya are thinking about getting me one to stop me from jumping.  I have a few other things that I do that they want me to stop doing as well.  So far, they have excepted that I am a strong willed dog.

Bye bye for now.

18/Jul/17 dancing for BBQ'ed pork steaks

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Tonya is such a good dance partner.  I could smell the veggie kebabs.  I could smell the mushrooms and onions cooking inside the tin foil packs with butter.  I could smell the pork loin steaks that were being smoked with the apple wood chips.  I could smell everything on that charcoal BBQ.  I just wanted to dance.

Then the Big Guy said, NO PORK FOR YOU!

I was sad.

Tonya did let a few pieces fall on the kitchen floor that I was able to get to without the Big Guy knowing.

I also ate a flying ant.  Tonya wasn't too happy about that.

Did you like that video?  Let the Big Guy know with a few comments below.

Tonight I should be going to Open Hearth Park with Banting.  She is a Great Dane mixed with St Bernard.  She is tall and weighs MORE than me.  But I am build to pull carts.  She is built to run after rabbits.

Bye bye for now.

17/Jul/17 swimming at the Bras d'Or Lakes

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

I am hoping that the Big Guy will be uploading my videos and putting them in my Blog today.  Yesterday we went to the Bras d'Or Lakes and I was looking under water for the rocks that they were throwing in the water.  Not many dogs feel comfortable about putting their face underwater.

We went to the Dog Park over at the Open Hearth Park in Sydney.  It was Ribfest yesterday.  So there was a lot of cars parked there.  Thankfully there was ONE spot left open.  We parked there and I ran around for a bit by myself.  This one guy came inside the fence.  We thought he was bringing his dog, but he was just there to dump his garbage.

We came home and the Big Guy cut up a pork loin and BBQ'ed it.  Tonya dropped a few pieces on the floor.  Do NOT tell the Big Guy this.  He thought the pork was too good to share.

They were going to have Clarke and Elaine over for BBQ last night, but Clarke had plans to go visit with his friends.  I know that Tonya was kinda let down with this news.  But he has friends of his own that he likes to visit with.  

The upload for the videos is going SUPER slow.  I will have to get this done for tomorrow's blog.  That is unless you know the youtube site and will be able to see my videos before they get posted.

Bye bye for now.

16/Jul/17 wearing the Doggles

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Yesterday we all took turns wearing my Doggles.  Goggles for Dogs, so Doggles.

I REFUSED to keep them on.

The Big Guy was thinking that they would be OK when he is using his snow blower.  But he already has a pair of snow goggles that his Mum bought him for XMas this past year.  So he does NOT need to wear mine.

Tonya was driving around yesterday and she seen Bailey was off her lead.  She was going to stop and bring her home, but there is this other dog that lives there and he isn't so friendly.  Bailey wasn't going too far from her home.  I hope she is OK.

Yesterday the Big Guy had done up some steaks and scallops on the BBQ.  I got to have the bones that was left over.  That was until Tonya thought that I have chewed enough on the bones and then threw them off the deck and into the grass.  Now some other animal will have at them.  If not, the next time the Big Guy is out mowing the lawn, there is going to be bone shrapnel flying out from under his lawn mower.

Do you see how the Big Guy is sitting in the sun?  Well he doesn't have any sunscreen on.  He got burnt a bit.  He can be dumb about stuff at times.

Tonya wanted to sit out MORE on the front deck, but the Big Guy was bitching about his sun burn.  Tonya called him some names and they went inside.  Then she seen that he was a bit burnt.  She apologized for being not so nice.

Yesterday we went for a LONG walk.  All the way down to Main St.  I don't know why they call it that cause it is COMMERCIAL St.  But went to see Verna at her store.  Then we walked home.  The Big Guy liked it cause he didn't have to worry about people being on Commercial St that would be scared of me.  Normally when we walk down there, he holds me tight to his side.  I want to sniff everything and he doesn't let me.  So it is annoying to both of us when we walk down there.

The Big Guy wants the computer so that he can upload a video.  So I gotta go for now.

Bye bye for now.

15/Jul/17 What are YOU looking at

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Today, the Big Guy has to finished this Keto Pancake challenge.  He is in this group of YouTubers and someone challenged him to make some special pancakes.  They are either going to taste great, of they will be a flop and will be given to the sea gulls.  It seems there is no in between with that kind of stuff.  But he and Tonya haven't had pancakes in several months now.

Yesterday was clean, clean, clean.  Everything got cleaned yesterday.  No time for me.  That's all that Tonya did.  I kept getting in the way.

Well today, after the pancakes are done, I wonder if the Big Guy is going to be spending time with me?  I heard him saying that he will be trying to make ribs on his charcoal BBQ today.  I think I may be getting some bones by the end of the day.  Paws crossed.  Floyd will be dropping by.

Tonya and the Big Guy were talking about the vet yesterday.  She said that from now on, could we bring some special treats for when I visit there.  That way, I will not associate them ganging up on me to hold me down while they clipped my dew claw.

The weather has been great so far.  There is rain coming up, but only during the week days.  It should be nice all weekend.

Well, the Big Guy is saying that it's PANCAKE time.  So I gotta go for now.

Bye bye for now.

14/Jul/17 but I WANTED BBQ'ed steak

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

What do I get when those two humans are having supper?  Kibble and water.  Always the same.  A dog can't live on just kibble and water.

It wouldn't kill me if they were to give me a BBQ'ed steak every so often.

Yesterday I had to go to the vet.  Now, I remember the VET.  This is where I went in the back room and there was six of them waiting for me.  

Can you imagine!

SIX humans up against ME.  Five of them held me down while one of them was cutting my dew claws.  I didn't bite any of them, but they knew that I wasn't happy.  When they let me go, I shook it off and ran out to be next to the Big Guy.  I insisted that we leave.  RIGHT NOW!

So yesterday, Tonya is trying to get me back INSIDE this place.  I'm not to happy about that.  But they didn't hold me down.  Someone gave me a treat and then there was a mosquito that bit me on the back of my neck.  I was told it was a booster shot for something or other.  Then we got to leave pretty much right away.  So that wasn't so bad after all.

I got to watch the Big Guy mow his lawn last night.  He also has this thing called a whipper snipper.  I am none too pleased with it.  It makes a high pitched noise and it hurts my ears.  I want to BITE it really bad.  But the Big Guy will yell at me for trying and will move it just out of my reach.

After they were done, they were relaxing on the front deck.  The Big Guy was waving this tennis racket thingy around.  He would press a button on the handle and then wave it around.  A mosquito would go inside the opening and would sizzle and pop.  The Big Guy held it down and I wanted to sniff this "tennis racket".  

One of my whiskers went in the opening and I was ELECTROCUTED! 

The Big Guy is waving around a taser that looks like a tennis racket?!

The Big Guy thought this was funny as hell.  How he laughed.  When he passed it over to Tonya, I wanted NOTHING to do with this "tennis racket - taser" thingy.  Then when it was time to go in, I had to make sure that neither of them had this 'tennis racket - taser" thingy in their hands.  Once I seen the coast was all clear, then I went inside with them.

Bye bye for now.
