This time, Death From Above! Amazingly, while I was walking the Wonder Beagle today I saw a bald eagle, which migrate through the area of the Secret Hidden Bunker a couple of times a year. The eagle was circling up high when he suddenly dropped like a freight elevator, then made a swooping run above us at telephone pole level. The eagle banked, looped around and came in even lower, so low that even Alf pulled her nose off the ground to watch the bird. Of course, in Alf's World big birds deliver food and are relatively benign playmates.
The eagle apparent decided that Alf was a bit big for dinner and headed off on the thermals. I think the eagle was puzzled by Alf, who was wearing her fashionable holstein cow sweater. So there...doggie fashion as a survival skill!
The eagle was darn cool, though.
We were up on the property of the New Improved Secret Hidden Bunker with the contractor today...the blasting is finished and the house platform looks a little like Europe at the end of WW2. There a 10 foot high wall of blasted granite at the front of the house platform, which I (of course) see as a feature, not a bug! All I need is a couple of arbalests and a moat...and some crocodiles maybe. Boiling oil. The whole medieval package, so to speak. Probably pour the foundation in November, after they finish digging the dungeon and get the iron rings set in the granite.
