A little smile for today.


 Wildcat fan !

 Love all the mascots they have in Japan.

Mia will be Kiki with Jiji (Kiki's Delivery Service) this year For Halloween.
One of Hayao Miyazaki wonderful anime movies. 
Mia looks just like Kiki !

Monday catch up.

Last year daughter and flatmates came down to Tucson for some 
New Year warm weather with no snow and to celebrate my Birthday.
Stephanie drew thehamish for me.

After thehamish died one day this came in the mail.

 Stephanie never saw Watson except in photos and yet this looks just like him.
This looks so much like both of them.
She is a wonderful artist.

As always here is your pretty (maybe)  to start the week.

I have no words !

 Clouds are dancing across the sky,

just before sunset.

Square Dog Friday

Best day of the week is here,
Square Dog Friday !
You know the drill so let's woof it.

Winston is still at Puppy Boot Camp.
Here are a few photos of him so you do not forget manables.

We are thinking if loaning him out to detect alien spaceships.
 Area 51 here we come.

 He was eating some salad, along with the root and the dirt that was still on it.
Salad has never tasted so good.

 Sleepy gud dug.
Running through the sprinklers will do it every time.

Monsieur Oliver.

Here is Miss Pretty, Merida or as I call her Marabo.

Gud dug and cattie door.

She is so beautiful her fur is just like silk.
Both their eyes are Peridot.


As always here is your pretty for the weekend.

 The Denver National Weather Service had a bewildering bob on their radar this week.
A huge mass of color appeared and they didn't know what it was ?
Turns out it was a migration of Painted Lady Butterflies from north to south.
They covered an area about 70 miles wide.
Can you believe what a delight it would have been to stand there and
have millions of butterflies flying above and around you.
Yes Please !
 Found this adorable dog up for adoption. I want him but two
puppies are way too much for me.  He is a Corgi Dachshound mix.
What a happy a gud dug !
He is all the way up in Phoenix (if he was in Tucson I would have adopted him)
but he wasn't on the list yesterday so I think he was adopted.


My arthritic hands have a mind of their own and sometime I find strange photos  
that I have accidently taken when I put the phone down.

I rather like this one.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey, I just found out I am a racist.

Just found out I am a racist.

A few days ago I found out that Librarian, Liz Soeiro  has refused a gift 
of four Dr. Seuss books from Melania Trump because they are racist.
My three over 30 year old children have all read these books. Everyone their age read 
them in school. The rhyming is good for speech in little ones. 
Not a fan of the drawings but I understand the color choices.
Well they are racist. 
She refused these books criticizing the Trump Administration.

What I wonder is if Michelle Obama sent these books would they still be racist ?
And by the way President Obama is a fan of Dr. Seuss books and
Michelle Obama has dressed up as and read Dr. Seuss books.

Now after the horrible shooting in Las Vegas, 
CBS Vice President Hayley Geftman-Gold has said she was " not even 
sympathetic" to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting because 
"country music fans are often Republican".

Okey...  I am a  Democrat who like Country Music. 

Hillary Clinton called me a Deplorable.
Because I/we did not support her. I didn't support Trump either.

Meryl Streep said if it wasn't for the east and west coast,  all the arts
we would be watching football and mixed martial art. 
I have been a Democrat all my life.

I like Country Music.

Have read The Cat In The Hat way too many times.

I guess I am a Deplorable because I follow the laws of the United States.

I do not like Football but enjoy Baseball very much.
And I started to take a Mixed Martial Art class that uses a cane.
Art come from everywhere, not just the east and west coast.

 just saying....
