Square Dog Friday, Wall of Doom

Best day of the week is here.
Square Dog Friday.

Son has been saving boxes for several months, so he could build a wall.
A wall of Doom for mandibles !

We thought that if iwinston saw this wall he would go crazy and
destroy it, boxes flying everywhere !
Good idea but we found out something interesting.
Winston likes to destroy one box at a time.
Plus he is a bit afraid of things. He doesn't have Hamish to teach him about
the big world so he has to work things out by himself.

He is a very cautious. When something is new or out of place 
he barks first and then slowly checks thing out. 
While he didn't bark he was careful.

We knocked a box over and then hid a toy to help him.
We left everything there because I think it is a hoot !
He does play with one box at a time especially if I play with hm.

Love both of his little paws in the air as he jumps around.


As always here is you pretty for the weekend.

Woke up Thursday morning and this is what I saw on my way to the kitchen.
The Texas Sage had burst into flower.

 It will bloom several times summer.

I need to get the gardeners to thin out the plant. 
When it gets too full and thick the plant gets overwhelmed. 

Have a lovely weekend.

On my Sunday afternoon, Japan's Monday morning
there was an earthquake, 6.1 in Osaka, right where my family lives.
Son was on a parked train and because of the suspension it was shaking very hard.
Yuko and Mia were home, a day off of her school, thank goodness.
Everyone is fine, happy to say.
There are some fires, broken gas and water pipes.

 All the X's are where family lives.

. . .

A Tako (octopus) wearing iwinstons sheriffs hat with two mugs that look like

Here is your pretty for the start of the week.

Not sure if I have posted these photos before 
but here is iwinston chewing on his favorite stick.

Everyone have a nice quiet start to the week.

I want this gud Square Dug,
Love being able to see how darling they look when they run.
This looks just like iwinston when he runs.

Here he is. . . Sir Winston Mandablies Churchill

Love the way he put the toy in the box.
Well it is a start, sort of.

This is my very small freezer. I noticed something different.

Can you see it ?

Seems when you have a Biologist staying with you
 one can find all sorts of fun items in your freezer.

Can you see the small coyote skull. Poor baby, life in the desert.


As always here is your pretty to start the week.

iwinston eating ice !

Not sure if I posted this sky from a few weeks ago.
It has been sunny very hot days with few or no clouds.

 Clouds are starting to reappear but these will not bring any rain.

We are having very hot days 100+ with little moisture and no clouds.
That makes for very hot looking sunsets. I have way to many of these hot sunsets photos. 
I have been trying to delete lot of these extras.
 We need RAIN !
