Monday sadness.

Such sad news everywhere today.

I read some of the news of the forest fires in Portugal.
With all the other news in  Washington, London, Paris and Syria,
some news feeds are not even mentioning it today.

If you haven't read about this there is a huge fast growing forest fire 
in central Portugal. It has injured 16 with at this time 
25 people killed with many burned to death in their cars trying to escape.

This reminds me of the wildfire that destroyed part of Laguna Beach.
We were living on the top of a hill overlooking Laguna Beach to the Pacific.
The wildfire came blowing in from the north and in a few seconds turned 
blew up and over the backside of the hill and flew down and over my home. 
We had seconds to leave. 

I drove the children down the hill then onto Pacific Coast Highway. 
The road was now bumper to bumper. I could see the fire coming down the hill towards us.
 PCH runs right next to ocean, I told my older son, to hold on to his brother and sister 
and run the block to the ocean and jump in, if the fire overtook us and don't look back.

We had an a chance so many of these people didn't.
My heart goes out to them. I have lived through this and it is horrible.
I am holding all of these people close to my heart today.

I end with a happy.

Wednesday Weird

This post was ready to go, so I will still post it.
After all a silly smile is good at any time.
I have some thoughts on the shooting of Republicans in Alexandria.
I will post about this tomorrow.
Sad day all around.

Over the years I have entered The Trelawnyd Flower Show.
Of course this is all because John of "Going Gently" has once again let blog friends
from all over to enter the bloggers  novelty veggie category. 
We send him a photo of our entry, he prints it out and put them up on a wall for judging.

I have never won but here are my entries from past years.

 Found in my garden.

 Prickly Pear Pads and Fruit from my garden.

 More Prickly Pear Fruit from my garden.

 Carrot tops

The Famous angryparsnip !
Carrots beware.


This years entry

A favorite veggie, Fennel.
I might have a second entry, still working on it.


Oliver, I love his eyes.
I might enter this one in the photography section.

Merida is not happy.

 I changed the eyes for her but.... still not happy

But my sweet baboo is happy.
Much like Watson, thehamish is a happy gud dug.

cheers,  parsnip

Monday morning

At the start of last week, thehamish was in pain and could not walk. 
For three days we carried him everywhere with a visit to the vet.

Here he is today !

thehamish does this every morning walking from my bedroom to the kitchen and his breakfast.
Yes, he is taken care of first.
A visit to outside, a woof at the critters and a sniff at the plants, breakfast, 
insulin shot, eye drops, pills and a treat.
Then I can have a coffee and my breakfast.

cheers. . . parsnip

Square Dog Friday, late !

Square Dog Friday, best day of the week.
thehamish started the week off in pain and not walking,
we had to carry him everywhere.
Back to the vet where more test were taken and found out his back is in trouble. 
We got him home filled with pain and muscle relievers.

Back home resting.
We have taken away the stairs up to my bed. He is not happy puppy.
He likes to sleep at the foot of my bed. He doesn't really cuddle but he likes my bed.

 Son took this photo of  thehamish and Oliver !
 I love it.
