On my way back from an assignment I turned off the main road and drove under the canopy of old trees to the house of my favorite people. I wrote about Pat Gibbons and his family in these blog posts : in 2015 and 2014 It has been a while since I last visited, and I didn’t call in advance. I saw that the door was half open, and parked at the side of the road. Another car slowly approached, and parked across from me. I didn’t plan to take any pictures and knocked on the door just to say hello, but Pat was about to take the foxes outside for a minute anyway, so I went to pick up my camera. Meanwhile, a family got out of the other car and asked me if it was the Fox Man’s house. The word spreads 🙂
Pat is always happy when someone shows up to see his foxes. ‘It is why they are here’ he says. He told the visitors about where the foxes come from and about Gráinne’s career as a movie star. She is as beautiful as always, just with more silver in her fur.
Minnie is soft and shy – nothing has changed here 🙂
It is the time for hugging.
Gráinne is tired.
She does a bit of posing for pictures.
Pat is asking Gráinne to perform her famous trick.
We walk to the pen to visit with Henry. He is not in the mood to go outside this time.
In a couple of hours they all will go to Pat’s house and enjoy their evening together cuddling and watching the TV.
I know you all love this post and the foxes 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
Have a beautiful weekend!
