The hay stack on the back porch has provided Smooch with a welcome diversion this winter,
Her vantage point from high atop Fort Smooch
affords a strategic advantage against invaders on all sides...
...including me. I've panicked a few times lately thinking she's disappeared from the back yard,
only to find her sitting quietly atop the stack.
At the rate I've been feeding the herd, the stack will be gone in a few weeks
and I'll start pulling bales from the hay barn.
Smooch has asked me to leave what remains so she can hold down the fort.
