Yesterday, after work, we had a nice walk in the woods with the purpose to gather some cowberries. Cowberry jam for the winter :D The sun was up, it was no wind and 72 degrees fahrenheit, we had brought food and only started to head for home at sunset. Here are some pictures:

Mr. Runcible resting a little after the walk

Look! Me and the dead, mutilated tree


Mr. Runcible helped look for berries too


What we came looking for was this:


What we found was this:



Mr. Capercaillie decieded to pay us a visit. He was only seven feet away at the closest. It looked like he was in the middle of the mating ritual. Confused little fella, he probably didn't get any this spring :p
With that and Mr. Runcible running into a little black elkound pup we all agreed that it had been a nice day in the woods.

Until next time..

I thought Capercaillies were only found in Scotland! Learn something new every day. I've always wanted to see one.

Murraysmom, their size can get up to 3 feet.

They taste great with cowberry jam by the way. Capercaillie has meat that is parts dark and parts white. Originally it had just dark meat, but then it took a big bite out of the hazel grouse and that is why it has two coloured meat and why the hazel grouse is so small :p

But do not worry, the mister on the pictures did not end up on our dinner table.

Well, that was Friday, now it is sunday and I got visited by Aurora Borealis. That means winter is headed this way. I hate winter. Cold and snow. Dark when you leave for work and dark when you get home, the northern lights are just about the only thing positive about winter........ oh and hot chocolate.
Alas I did not bring my camera, but I'll get enough opportunities during the loooooooong winter.

We LOVE Norwegian forest pictures that feature basset hounds, no matter who posts them. Mr Runcible is such a beautiful hound. Liked the wild turkey too!

Steinar, you are the original...and you KNOW we can't get enough of Emma and Doris. They have a fan club here, remember? (Of which I am the "ahem" president). :D

Here's our new motto: Blue and Yellow make Green, Emma and Doris are peachy keen!

LOL Betsy!!
I am guilty of looking like a fool in any bar/restaurant that dares play that Blue Oyster Cult song! My air-cowbell skills really are on display then.

Kaira, your pictures are beautiful, as is Mr. Runcible. That is what is so great about this forum, we get to share the world through our love of the Basset Hound. Keep the wonderful pictures coming, and you, too, Steinar. We all love the beautiful duo of Doris and Emma and their adventures.
