Over the fence
Well this morning, I did it. I jumped over the fence. Joan didn't see me do it because she was in the basement getting me my breakfast. But unfortunately for me (I don't always anticipate the future very well), Joan came up the stairs and saw me while I was roaming around the fenced off area! Oops. She came out and talked sternly to me. It was funny - she thinks she is so important. So I came back out of the disallowed area, but I decided to not jump over the fence on the way back and I worked my way around and through the raspberry bushes and there was a little slit I could slip through and get back to the back door. Joan was disapproving but she didn't actually seem all that mad or anything. She just tries.
It's getting really nice here, and I love to sit in the sun. Since Joan cut off the yard from me, she put out a mat for me to lay on in the backyard because the brick patio is a bit hard. She's always looking out for me!
