They’re Staring at Me

Sun, 28 Sep 2014, 03:33 PM (-06:00)

They’re staring at me. Both of them. Just sitting and standing there staring silently directly at me. It’s only 4:30. No, you can’t have dinner yet. That’s what I get for feeding them early before I went out last night. And darn it, now I’m hungry, too! Thanks a lot, doggies.

Hike In The Woods

Wed, 25 Dec 2013, 04:27 PM (-06:00)

The air was brisk, the sky a cloudy gray. Yesterday’s blue and sun were gone. Brown leaves lay on the ground. Green cactus and viney things stood to the left and right of the path. The dogs were happy to be out, pulling on their leashes, sniffing at the ground, dreaming of dashing off into […]

The listing said that the unit was empty. And the original asking price was very interesting, although later in the day price bumped up. Still, we were curious, so we went to take a look. Unit 4 was at the end of the complex in the dark shade of some Live Oak trees. It was […]

Izzy’s Big Adventure

Mon, 21 Jan 2013, 09:27 PM (-06:00)

1. The Egg Event In the riot that is the moments of morning as the hounds are released and race across the living room thru the doorway and jump onto the bed, Izzy comes up and pushes her Fabergé egg in my face. Her Fabergé egg, it sounds so much better the Kibble Nibble Dog […]

They Both Know

Sat, 1 Sep 2012, 10:09 AM (-06:00)

The ice chests have ice in them. Trudy has begun transferring the foodstuffs from the fridge. And the dogs both know that something’s going on. That Guinness should know is perhaps not surprising. He’s twelve years old and has seen it all before. So in the interest of ensuring that we don’t leave without him, […]

Morning/Evening After The Rains

Wed, 11 Jul 2012, 09:20 PM (-06:00)

1. Morning On the way to work, I stopped to sit beside the pool. To watch the fish slowly circle and blow bubbles on the still surface of the water. I stopped to contemplate the Lily Pads. The white blossoms. The peach-colored blossoms. I set my laptop case on the table. And my cucumber snack […]

At Seismic Wall

Mon, 21 May 2012, 05:01 AM (-06:00)

“Nice dog,” he said. “Boy or girl?” Izzy was sitting in my lap. I was sitting in a folding chair in the middle of creek. The seat of the chair was in the water. A bright sun was shining, which was good for Izzy who was drying off from her fourth or fifth swim across […]

Dogs and Pines and Moon

Fri, 2 Mar 2012, 10:03 PM (-06:00)

The dogs walked around the yard a bit, sniffed the balmy air and went back inside. It was dark. I couldn’t see my feet in the shadows. I stood there in the warm night letting my eyes adjust. A breeze came up. It blew thru the branches of the pine tree and made that lonesome […]

Great Horned Owls

Sat, 11 Feb 2012, 01:56 PM (-06:00)

When we got out of the car, Trudy want into the house, and I went around the side to drop some bottles into the recycling bin. There was a hooting somewhere in the back. I mean a real hoo-hoo-hoo hooting. The kind of clichéd owl sound you might hear on a cartoon. I stood silently, listening […]
