Square Dog Friday here and there

Oh My Goodness best day of the week is here.
Square Dog Friday
You know the drill so lets woof it !
When I moved into this house, the former owners had two master bedroom sharing
a bathtub, shower and bathroom. They each had their own closets and sinks.
Watson and thehamish found they could run in a circle from one room to the other side of the house, when the door was open.
The Square Ones loved loved to run the course.
 I moved 4 walls ripped up carpet made two self contained bedrooms and bathrooms.
But that also meant closing off the run between the two bedrooms and the rest of the house.
Watson loved to run back and forth so much that I had a Square Dog door put in. 
I do have some photos of Watson using the door but I can find them ?
One time Watson was walking into Son's bedroom
and thehamish tried to squeeze through at the same time.
He is  thehamish !
Here is thehamish using the door.
A little blurry as he was moving.
I am closing off the gud dug door. thehamish does not use it as much a Watson did.

My bathroom is to the right, then the tub with a step down shower behind it.

hey mum nice tall person who feeds us
is that a cookie i thehamish see in your hand

ok bye now i thehamish gots work to do

This is Watson looking out the gud dug window to the citrus grove.
Lots of birds, quail, bunbuns, coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions and javelians to watch.

and sometimes to see his little sweet person Mia outside.

And just because I can here is your pretty to start the weekend.

First morning in Australia.
Meanwhile back in Japan.

He will miss Daughter dressing up for Halloween.

It is a hoot !
 Fabulous clouds after a big storm on his way to work one morning.
Just beautiful the colors are beyond fabulous.


And as always just because I can here is your pretty for mid-week.

I heard some nurffering sounds from the sofa in my studio last night.
I looked over and saw thehamish digging under the first pillow.
Went back to work and later I looked over to see thehamish 
ensconced in pillow comfort .
That is one crazy scotty and I lurve him !

parley view parsnip. . soda and beer !

Monday Monday. . .
Hello Mammas and the Pappas.
The older I get the faster the weeks goes.
So a quick Monday post , because I want to keep my
Monday Wednesday and Friday posting.
Soda !
Cactus Cooler.
Growing up in the wild wild wild west,
this is something from my childhood. Even Fred Flintstone loved this drink.
Outside of Arizona it is hard to find.
A local favorite it is a pineapple orange soda.  Great with outdoor barbecues.
But it is sweet and one will do just fine.
Son just bought some. Oh my childhood is calling.
 I have limited myself to one a month.

We didn't have much sweet sodas when I grew up but this was a treat along with
A and W Root Beer bought from the stand.
If we were lucky we were able to have a root beer float !
Beer !
I don't drink, I am on too many drugs since I was 15 years old. 
But sometimes I will have a small sip of beer with a Japanese dinner
because it works so well with sushi.
When second son finished up his degree at Flagstaff he found several small 
Brewing Companies he liked. 
 He met both owners of these two breweries.
He really likes the Mother Road Brewing Company and
Flagstaff Brewing Company.
And of course I tossed in The Grand Canyon one for fun.
To the East in New Mexico

 this local beer is a hoot !
And according to both sons is very good. They both like it.

Tucson has several great breweries but one of Son's favorites is
Iron John's
 Small batches and great bottles.
Great Beer.
 And just because I can here is your pretty to start the week !
 who is eating my melon plant ?
urrrrr gooourrr ummmmp ......
Walking Dead carrot tops, the bottoms were eaten !
yunmmur eurp
More fun from John's Blog fun veggie show blog.

Halloween sunset ?

Square Dog Friday, Herbal Body Wrap

Here it is the best day of the week.
Square Dog Friday.
You know the drill  so lets woof it !
Photos of thehamish before the Herbal Body Wrap.
I must admit we were playing with him.
Nufferling under the blanket and pillows 
so he did get his really cute beard all roughed up.
I love the scruffy look.

 Hahahahahahahahahahaha I love this look.

 Here is the very regal after Herbal Body Wrap look.
So clean, so perfect, so pretty till he hits the sofa and carpet and messes 
all this beauty up, right after this photo.
Right now he looks like the photo of an author on a book jacket.

Some sad news for me
Because of our very strange weather we had rain zooming in every evening
for the last two week.
Not that I am complaining because we need the rain but.....
I had to turn off the heater to the pool. I usually don't shut it off  for another two weeks.
This has been the strangest summer I have ever lived in the desert.
So very wierd !
The storm have zoomed in at the strangest time not our usual weather patterns.
So my pool exercise time has been scattered. 
So now it is back to the machines indoor which not as much fun and harder (painful) to do.

Plus no more Cabana Boys !
oh woe is me !
woe !
I love my Cabana Boys.
woof !

Watson and thehamish "The Cabana Boys"
wurf woof !
 thehamish is looking good,  hubba habba
ummmmmmmm were is my drink cabana boy ?
The one with the fruit and little unbrella in it.

I think thehamish drank it !
He did spit out the umbrella though.
He does that, often.
