Square Dog Friday . . . pantaloons

Here we are again at the best day of the week
Square Dog Friday.
One Little Square Black Dog thinks everyday is his best day and it is true.
Everyday is to be lived in the moment with chkikin'.

Back from his herbal body wrap and all dressed up for the 4th of July weekend.
His pantaloons are just fabulous !




A Little Square Black Dog in his element.
Pillows and inside a AC cooled home.

yesh i thehamish is thinkin' nice tall person who feeds us is makin' funny on me
so here is i thehamish action scotty attackin' the wild pizza


And of course here is your pretty to start the weekend.
Two days of an overcast sky have been very nice change from bright sun and high heat.

Son brought home a watermelon for me. 
I washed the outer skin with soap and water, I do this with all my veg and fruit.
But I really this do with any fruit and veg from mexico.
You have to because it will have drugs mostly cocaine and feces on it,
I didn't check the tag.
So when I cut into it I was so surprised, it was yellow and very pretty.

That is one of my very ripe homegrown tomatoes photobombing the watermelon.
Naughty !

Suprise !

Cedar Creek Fire Update

A very quick Tuesday update. Arizona is hot and burning !

All these Cutie Pies are now at the shelter that son volunteers at.
The Cedar Creek fire is growing and the White Mountain Humane Society 
needed help.
I want to adopt them all.  Such sweet faces and waggie tails.

cheers,  gayle

Too hot to fry an egg on the sidewalk !

Did I say it was hot in Tucson.
Every News Channel have been broadcasting warning about the heat.
But of course there are many who do not listen.
Four deaths yesterday, people who should have know better, hikers.

Today just down from my home another hiker has been missing since yesterday.
115 and this person decides to go hiking ? The searchers left at 6 this morning to
start up the trail again. I hope he is found and OK, but like fast water rescues in the monsoons I want him to cover the costs. People need to be responsible.
Hottest day in 22 years and he thinks, wow I need to go on a hike today !

Fires all over Arizona.
Several around the Tucson area.  The two biggest ones started on the border with mexico.
Both were man made.

You know it is too hot in Tucson when the Prickly Pear Cactus start folding over, 
This has never happened to me before. Even with some watering there is nothing you can do
against two dry years, high temperatures and hot winds.

This Prickly Pear is loaded with fruit like the cactus knew to make as many seeds as possible.

Here are a few photos from a few years ago when it was unofficially 117 at my home.

Resting in the cool dirt.

Here is your pretty to start the week.

Monday morning at 7:00 it was 89. Start of another hot day.
Only 112 today.
Hot !

The flowers that came on "Good News" Tuesday are impossible to take a good photo of.
I keep moving them around but the color is so intense they just blur.
But I love them and here is another photo.
Pretty pretty.

omgomgomgomg omg !

Oh My Goodness !
After  4 weeks of tests, waiting and then going back for more tests, waiting
and then waiting 5 days for the last test, results,  I found out for now the 3 masses
 attached to my kidneys and liver are benign !
I still have to come back for testing over the years but for now I am very relived.
yee haw !

 I go back on Thursday for more instructions on what to do.
Having this hanging over my head especially the last weeks has been super hard.

I believe you have to live the hand you're dealt but you don't always have to like it.
Best friend Debbie's  Birthday was coming up.
Since she was just here for a week of Tucson pre-Birthday fun,
 I sent her some flowers right before her day.
When I send flowers  sometimes I order flowers for me.
I sent her Peonies, we both love them, but I sent myself these beautiful Rouge McKaras.
I have never seen these shape or color before.
Plus they came on the same day as the good news.





 Today with daylight I will try to take a better photo.
The color is so intense that I need to find the right spot and light.

Today is a good day.


As always just because I can
here is your pretty for the middle of the week.
