Hurricane warnings for Hope!

Yes, there is one on the way.  In preparation I have already made the pie crusts for Thanksgiving and put them in the freezer.  I spent half of the day Thursday buying groceries and stocking up.

Even with a hurricane on the way it was no excuse for Maggie to get out of her Thanksgiving bath.

Maggie curled up and drying out after her bath.
Maggie is a very sweet dog.  When I say to her "it's time to take a bath", she goes down the stairs, into the bathroom and jumps into the bathtub.  She isn't crazy about getting a bath, but she's very polite.  She also knows she is going to get a towel rubdown after the bath and she really loves that. 

According to David, even though Ben is only three years old he is already a Category 5 hurricane and we should expect a major storm surge, rain, high winds and possible tidal flooding.  (something to do with toilet training?)  Retired Mountain Man is definitely afraid and is thinking about fleeing farther inland.  He might get as far as Clark Fork.  Hurricane Ben is expected to make landfall at about 8:30 p.m. tonight. 

 Bring on Thanksgiving.
