Indoor pool, Go West and 25


- I admire this dog's perseverance and it's something we can all relate to - the HEAT was getting to him. :) Make sure you watch it to the end.

- Niece's husband TS (does that make him my nephew?) is posting all across America on his cross country motorcycle trip with friends. A comment from yesterday: "Today we ride into the Black Hills. Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and winding green roads through rolling hills under blue skies. Theme song of the day is Go West (from Pet Shop Boys)." I like that theme song thing - we should all do that for our day.

- I was one of the winners of the Sunday Quiz over at Fireblossom's blog and got a poem! She asked that I send a topic, but I sent a couple of New York photos taken in May instead and look at the result. Thanks, FB! Check out "25" here.

Today's theme song for me would be "Rain,Rain" by the Sir Douglas Quintet.

That dog is so adorable! I'm glad his name is "Gus". That seems oddly appropriate.

TALON said...

lol! I love how clever the dog was figuring out that it had to be empty to tilt it enough. You can't blame them for wanting an indoor spa :)

That trip sounds so fun!

Ha ha that dog cracked me up! :D She was much more laid back about it all than I would have been. :D

So it's raining there. Good deal. I like that song. :)

I did like my poem. Thank you again!

Sparkling Red -

I know and I loved the way his companion was sort of letting him take the lead on all that, too.

Talon -

The owner's comment was funny - "we can't have anything nice, can we?" I used to say that to my cats when I looked at the hair on the sofa. :)

Joe -

I'm glad you liked it. :)

Cute doggie! We had to wipe down our kitties after they had an allergic reaction to a pet product, and they didn't mind the water at all...go figure.
