Wednesday in Japan. . . almost !

Son is leaving today for  Japan to visit family and friends.
When we travel to Japan we always take two bags. One is filled with clothes and stuff. The more important second bag is filled Omiyage and also today Birthday gifts. Omiyage are small but very nice gifts to give family and friends.

The Square Dogs do not like suitcases.
It always mean someone is leaving.


not gud nononono nots gud at all i needs to go too

nononon no you all stay out me going now


well maybe old gud dug Waston can go too this is funny he is standing on beer
yert !

After driving son to the airport for his 5am flight
this is what I saw driving home at about 4:30 am.


Morning sky at my back yard looking north.


Sunrise looking east


a few moments later...
Now I need a nap,  getting up at 2:45 is not gud as thehamish would say.

More Square Dogs and suitcase photos to follow on friday.

  1. Oh, p -- gorgeous shots, thank you!!

    I know this is going to sound incredibly selfish but I got a little thrill of excitement when you said Son is leaving for Japan because I know what that means for me and my girl, eventually! :D

    1. Oh me too ! in fact it was very hard to not get on the plane. le sigh
      I forgot to pack the addressed packet in the luggage so he could send it from Japan. Bummer !
      Family lives just down the street from a tiny but super nice post office that daughter and I spent over half and hour picking out fabulous stamps for some little gifts I was sending to friends. Maybe he can mosey down if he has the time after the goes to the Ghibli store if not I will mail it from Tucson. Good but not as much fun.

  2. Funny. Sir Poops and Hair Ball do the same thing when we get ready for trip. They even like to hang out in it them when we're trying to pack them.

    Hugs and chocolate,

    1. They circle the suitcases and sit their and look accusingly at whoever is packing them.
      When Son was packing his suitcase they were sleeping on his clothes.

    Tess still has not forgiven us for going on holiday
    last week and leaving her behind.

    1. Love or hate the line is very close.
      The Square Ones just know that the suitcases are a bad thing !

  6. Quite a view of the night sky!

    The doggies are entirely too cute. Of course, they already know that.

    1. I should have said that 4:30 am photo was a phone camera shot so there was a flash that picked up the dirty windshield from my trip back from Flagstaff. But I like the way it looks like the wind, stars, earth rotation ? ? ? are showning up. It is quite magical . I am going to see if I can expose more of that from a picasa copy.
      Waldie and new friend Truffs came over so we had a herd of gud duggies running around.

  7. Beautiful shots of the sky.

    Our cats don't like suitcases either. We're going away for a few days tomorrow, and our cats aren't at ALL happy. They've been trying their darnedest to get into our bags.

    1. I know that a cat will always want to be on the other side of a close door. So I assume a suitcase is just another door.

  8. Sam used to go nuts when we'd drag out suitcases or packing boxes. He hated moving. He didn't like change. Poor little guy...as Collin puts it, he ended up in a traveling circus.

  9. I was going to complement your camera on capturing the stars, but it is similar to mine, bugs on the windshield. Still pretty.
    Poor dogs, someone is leaving.

  10. Oh Pleaseeee, complement away !
    I park my car in my garage so it stays clean for a long time but it is somewhat messy right now.
    I will take any mistake and call it 'oh yes I wanted to do that.
    That is my phone camera but I only have a small point and click that son bought me on my last trip to Japan. I like it but no special lens.....

  12. The early start certainly reaps great benefits. Wonderful skies.
