A long National Dog Day-Bark in the Park plus more

Since today is National Dog Day in the US and where He works had “Bark in the Park” where you could bring your dog to a ballgame, I assumed I was going since I missed last time (subtle hint-IT IS DOG DAY), but no. He went without me. Like the last time on May 27th […]

Saturday Smile

We’re drying out The Scottiemobile did not get drowned. It has the removable “monsoon top”. In case you can’t read the yellow on the top of the rear window that I made Him put there:  

Downpour last night

We don’t get much rain in the desert, but sometimes it really comes. Last night was one of those times. Around here they have “100-year” and “500-year” floods indicating one that severe comes once in that time period. We had a 2-year flood. He drove home from work last night and mentioned there were a […]

More critters

So far, I’ve showed you our tarantulas and snakes. But wait, there’s more. You haven’t seen our lizards. These guys are tough to catch, even in a photograph. I swear, they’re quicker than bunnies. 6 foot (2 meter) high fences stop rabbits, but these guys just climb them and it is up and over in […]

Stuart ( is running for SpokesDog for Thundershirts and you can help elect him. I ask […]

Shoe of Shame

I have cracked paw disease. Imagine not being able to walk without pain. It’s been very good the past few years because I’ve been taking a daily statin pill that addresses this and my pads on the bottom of my feet have been normal. Last night, there was some irritation between the pads in my […]

Tools of the Trade

When a hustler enters the pool hall, does he use a pool hall cue stick? When a Major League hitter enters the batting box. does he take any old bat that was around? No siree, all the greats have their own custom equipment. I’m in training for next July 4 for the competitive eating contest […]

A few changes

I learned from Angus’ peeps that Angus crossed the bridge. I don’t think Angus had a blog and I didn’t know much about him except that he would have been 10 in October. Angus shared his wise and cheerful viewpoints with us up until July. We’re saddened by the loss of one of our friends. […]
