Happy SUN Day my fellow residents…

Tuesday, September the 29th, 2020. 

OK, I tried to post this blog on Sunday but the internet was so slow it kept timing out.  I personally think it is the Russians “meddling” again.  BTW, I detest the word meddling.  It’s like saying “The North Koreans are meddling with nuclear weapons.”  Meddling makes it sound like a crouchy mother in law always poking her nose in her kids business or telling the spouse howl to make potato salad;)  That would be meddling, not what the Russians do and anyone else that tries to blows up reality, (or the planet).  What a bunch of jerks.

So, let’s try this again!!!

Howllow fellow basset hound town residents and sunny day lovers. It has been so pretty the last few days but very dry.  I guess we are going through a drought.  We can do that standing on our heads considering what we have been through in 2020.

So, Daisy Lynn slept in this morning while I went out and watered…


It got the best of her and she has to come out and look at what is going on.  I made sure not to get the ladies room wet so her precious paw did not get damp.

We then spent the rest of the day volunteering for KYbassethoundrescue @ bassethoundtown.  There is always so much to keep us busy and always so many needy hounds wanting a couch of their own…with sun in their faces…;)

Now for a Tuesday weather update.  We got rain yesterday so there is hope for some fall colors.  We hope you have a great day and enjoy the fall weather…

More loving the sun in our faces later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB laying on sunny cloud couches…)



Howl low my friends howl low and happy FALL!!!

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and fall lovers.  I miss my fellow residents.  I hope you are having a wonderful entry way into fall.  I cannot believe that yesterday was the first day of my favorite season.  Things are getting a bit back to some sort of new normal.  Grandma and I went to one of our favorite spots to shop.  It is a wholesale place that has really good prices.  They have big cardboard boxes filled with pillows and sheets and more all around the place.

Well…I saw an items that looked like I had to have it.  I was reaching in the giant box…I just needed to reach a tiny bit further and you guessed it!  I fell in!!!  I cannot believe that Grandma did not take my picture.  We were laughing so hard that it hurt.  She was trying to pull me out and it was not working with the extra pandemic pounds I put on.

But…I got the coverlette for my office couch…It was the only one and by GAWD it was going to be mine!!!

5 bucks.  Yes, you heard me right…5 bucks…

Welcome to fall ya all!  If you must fall let it be in a big box of pillows and cheap coverlettes…

More soft falling later…Cat, Grandma, Daisy Lynn (falling asleep), (Chaps and Emma ATB laying on clouds covered in pretty rainbow coverlettes…)

I left my heart in San Francisco…

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and hearts in San Francisco Lovers…

I am one of those.  I fell in love with San Francisco when I had just turned 13.  It was 1969.  I could write an entire lifetime on that trip of a lifetime.

I took this picture from the middle seat (a Coleman cooler) in our 1968 VW Camper, fondly referred to as

“The Cramper”.

I only have this picture to share right now because I am the keeper of the thousands of family slides.  I am in the process of scanning them into my archives.

The bridge captured my heart from the get go.

This year, 2020 Grandma and I were all set to travel back to my bridge.  It would have been Grandma’s 90th birthday trip and another leg of the Lily Book Tour.

I posted this picture on my Lily Book Tour Facebook Page back on 12-4-19.  Wow, the glory of this picture is stunning.  The Gold, the Blue, the Moon the bay, the beauty.  I could not wait to capture my own next version of this Queen Bridge. I love that she is orange/gold.  Just like the Lily in the Lily book (orange).  Just like the heart of our very own Lily (gold).

“With graceful lines, Art Deco detailing and its emblematic color, the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most famous and beautiful bridges in the world. With towers extending 746 feet into the sky and a span of 4,200 feet, the bridge is an engineering marvel that stretches across the mouth of San Francisco Bay in California. Opened to the public in 1937, it is best photographed from the surrounding Golden Gate National Recreation Area. 

With so many views to choose from, you can find your own unique way to capture the bridge’s beauty. Photo by Daniel Gallo, National Park Service.”

But capturing this Queen of Dreams was not to be, at least not this year.  2020 brought so much needless pain and suffering.

This picture was captured on 3-23-20 at the height of California’s Shelter in Place order.  It makes my bottom lip quiver and brings a tear to the eye…

“This kid needs help”…

Could it get any worse?

Yes, yes it can…

#bassethoundtown weeps for you our city by the bay and all of the regions that are now on fire.  It really hurts to see beauty burn.

“My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me”

More loving Golden Gates later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma, At The Golden Gate Bridge waiting…)
