Off-Leash at the Dog Park


Since the weather has become mild compared to the summer months, we are now able to take the dogs to the Wickenburg Dog Park again. Both Cabela and Beethoven love to run around the park sniffing and doing their thing.

This photo is one of the rare times when I could get them both in the same frame as they explored a chair under one of the shade trees. Most of the time, they are running in different directions looking for whatever the park grounds might offer a dog.

Dozing in the Doggie Bed

Cabela’s Doggie Bed

The Daddy sneaked up behind me and took this picture of me napping in my doggie bed on the love seat in the great room. We are in the “tweener” months when it is still warm enough to sleep without blankets.

Textured Sky Above Home

Textured Sky

A tropical disturbance west of Baja California in the Eastern Pacific Ocean brought these feathery cirrus clouds over Arizona today as another low-pressure area over the pacific interacted with the tropical air aloft. Verna took this photo of the house from the driveway as we were getting ready to go shopping this afternoon. It was just another beautiful second spring day. Click on the image to enlarge.

Second Spring

Cactus Flower

We do not know the name of this cactus variety. It is in a pot in the courtyard in front of the house. When the flower first started to open this morning, it looked like a rosebud. When it fully opened this afternoon, it was clearly typical of cactus flowers. Click on the image to enlarge.

Alex’s Second Birthday

We’re a day late to post about our great grandson’s second birthday. One of the grand daughters posted this on the book with faces today, so I’m re-posting it here. Happy Birthday Li’l Dude.

Gonna See This Little Guy Next Week

Jerry AsleepWe’re on the road for a family reunion starting tomorrow and lasting until we get back home. We made arrangements to visit with our grandson, Jerry and his parents a week from tomorrow.

Before that, however, we will be in Stockton with our family from various places, mostly in California. They will dribble in and out at the sister’s place over the next few days.

We’re going to impose ourselves on my sister for a week, just to get caught up on everything and after that head back south for the rendezvous with little Jerry. We will have to stay one more night in a campground near Bakersfield on our way to Palm Desert.

When our visit with the kids and grandson is complete, we will be headed back home after a couple of weeks on the road. It has been, and will be, a lot of fun.

Salt Lake City Skyline

Salt Lake City

Our drive today took us up from Provo along Interstate 15 on our way to connect to Interstate 80 westbound. I took this photo of the skyline of the buildings in downtown Salt Lake City as we passed by on the Interstate. This is the first time I have been to this area, but Bob was here both as a kid on a Continental Trailways bus with Mom and Brothers and later as a pilot several times on charter or leisure flights.
