Adi Can -- Walk with an attitude -- Six Word Saturday
It has been a long time since Adi and I went for our morning walk. Yesterday we finally got out. The weather is so nice now, Fall has come to Texas for a few days.
Adi generally likes to take pictures but this morning she was a little anxious about stopping her walk for very long at all. She did tolerate sitting with these pretty flowers. We had a hard rain the night befor so these flowers weren't at their best.
Adi was less happy stopping under the horse apple tree for this picture.
We both thought someone had started gathering the fallen ones. Very likely they wanted to make a nice horse apple pie. That isn't true, we don't eat those at all around here. I don't think the horses would either.
They do keep roaches out of the garage if a few are placed here and there. We don't have roaches in our garage. So if you come for a visit, be sure you aren't bringing us any.
Here, Adi is more in her element, contented because we weren't stopping. We had been walking on sidewalks. Now she could run along with her nose to the ground. Adi would stop I'm sure if she sniffed something good for her to roll around in.

Potty Stop -- MidWeek Blues -- on the

This lady said,
"Let's see now, he said tie the white rope aft?
And aft is ... ?"

And these people are grumbling,
"We wouldn't be stopping here if Lucky had stayed home.
Or if he had learned to USE the toilet
instead of drinking from it."
These pictures were some of other boats that we saw while on our boat ride
on the Midi du Canal in Southern France this spring. (link)
It was part of one day's activities on our Spring 2009 Europe Holiday. (link)

GO COUGARS!!! -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- My friend's new RED Ford Mustang
My friend has a new RED 2010 Ford Mustang GT. She likes it a lot. I think the inside is prettier than the outside. Those blue flaming/fanning stripes on the side don't add very much.
How about those University of Houston Cougars, my alma mater's football team? Ranked 12 and 15 for this week, depending on your favorite poll.
In case you were wondering, the instrument I showed last week was a Cuban Shereke made from a large gourd. And not made in Cuba. To see the Question and the Answer Postings, click here.

A dog story -- about the dog who came to visit us kids at school one day -- Sunday night / Monday morning funny
It was a very pretty dog; all of us kids (all seven or eight in that one room school house) petted it. The teacher said be careful as the dog looked a little scruffy.
But this dog was so cheerful and wanted some loving that us kids could give him or her. And it did love us in return for our love, and partly for the lunch scraps we gave it.
Just about time for the end of noon recess, which was eat and then go outside and play tag or any-I-over, the dog decided it to poop.
And poop and poop that dog did. His (ladies don't have these problems do they) poop was bright yellow, very large in volume, and you know, I don't think it smelled bad.
The entire poopy mess there in the schoolyard was yellow. Mustard yellow.
Now kids like to give their pets enduring names. To this day those of us who get together to relate old times with who ever will gather with us call this dog "The Mustard Dog."
I may have found Mustard Dog again. He would be very old by now, especially in dog years. But Diane, my blogging friend in New Jersey, found a large yellow mess a couple of days ago on the sidewalk. Of course when a blogger finds something so worthy of passing along his knowledge on the subject he blogs about it.
You can click here to see the pile she found. Even though Mustard Dog would be extremely old now, this might be his dirty work. And since the pile Diane found is so much smaller--old dog size--than the one us kids watched being prepared, perhaps, just perhaps Mustard Dog still lives and has moseyed up there to New Jersey
My fitting cartoon for the Monday.
