WHIRLWIND VISIT


INHALE ~ EXHALE
INHALE ~ EXHALE
one more time
INHALE ~ EXHALE
aaaaahhhh!
now who lives here?


can't be CHICKY-WICKY
because she's hung up to dry
it would seem!


Let me check every ball
HUH!?!
MR.ORANGIE's family lives here. 
I know you believe me!


I feel like I've hit the JACKPOT
everywhere I look and sniff
I find MUNCHABLES,
absolutely everywhere.


even a bar with my picture 
DOODLE PLASTERED
all over it.



Alas after all that searching in vain
all I had to do was look up
and
there was 
HUGGY FROGGY 
who this time escaped my sniffing mania.
But guess what?
I have a great memory 
and
HUGGY FROGGY
had better keep an eye open
because I will return
singing this little ditty all way to the store ~~~

9TH ~ I'M HAVING MY NINTH BIRTHDAY!!






I try to be serious 
but when one of your Dads is just 
"over the top"
pretty much most of the time,
I have to be prepared
for anything
~ especially pictures.

The MOPFACE 
is/was captured
when I first understood what snow was all about
~~ one EATS snow whenever possible ~~
and 
I have maintained to this day
that by rolling and eating 
a wee bit of the white stuff
makes LIFE a little more sweeter.

My nine years have been so full
of JOY and LOVE 
for my guys.

NAMASTE
&
DOODLE ON 
my friends!

SOMETHING COMES OVER ME


I know I've mentioned this before ~~


but something truly comes over me ~~


when the right combination of fresh air / fresh sunlight / fresh salt air nearby


just send me
" 'round the moon Alice"



(I could dance for ever but we need to get walking)!


Are you ready for a nice long walk 
with your Yaktraks / Nordic Poles
(whatever works for you?!)
I have my four legs which have served me well.
~~
COME ALONG!!

ROUGH-HOUSE & NOT SO MUCH


As you must have deduced,
 I LOVE to ROUGH-HOUSE!
Give me a ball in Daddy Ron's hand
or
a 5 month old chocolate lab
♫♪♫•*¨* either, 'eye'ther
neither, n'eye'ther *¨*•♫♫♪
I will have them running like mad
in no time flat!


However when someone's Birthday comes round
and gifts start appearing from out of the blue,
then I settle down 
instantly!


Ron's brother Mike and his wife Susan
sent this beauty of an adult colouring book
all the way from Edmonton!


Colour plates of beautiful plants housed in the Kew Gardens in London, me thinks!
One side of the open pages is the completed picture
leaving the other side to be coloured at will
or exactly as shown on the left side.


 Also, Daddy Jim gave Ron an etching of a tree 
done by Judith Brannan
a local artist
who is the mother of Jim's shop friend Amy.
He told me that trees have captured his imagination all his life,
but really time is fleeting 
and
my world is 
of the moment ~~


as I told you!!!
OF THE MOMENT!!

HAPPY 2016 & REGAN CLAN SCARF


While I sit out here on the deck,
the snow filters down through the clouds 
onto the evergreens
and
my soft coat of hair.

Daddy Ron blindly ignores me
because he is all about his new merino wool scarf
from Ireland.
His Mom was a Regan you see, 
so finding this sweater site brought much joy to his Christmas.

Doesn't he realize I want to play though!!


He says it was a complete surprise.
Still, that doesn't mean he should leave me out here to play by myself!!


 He discovered this sweater site online apparently before Christmas 
and before you could whip up a scarf yourself
it arrived just after Christmas.
Apparently Daddy Jim covertly placed the order
waiting patiently 
so very patiently.


As you can see Daddy Ron is more than 
HAPPY
with his new Regan Clan scarf!


He is in the process of knitting another one


which isn't as involved 


so now he can use his new scarf as a guide
while he completes his blue / grey one.

All this being said,
a good romp in the snow  
and 
a chance to christen the scarf 
would work just fine!!
What more could you ask for on the 1st day of 2016!!

XMAS DAY BEACH WALK


Seriously!
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day weather-wise.
It felt like spring had arrived and winter was just a sweet memory.
I even went in for a swim.


 Mr. Orangie was in rare form,
so I figured that he needed reigning in / taming down
so I was super focused in rescue mode!


Daddy Jim was sporting his new down Arcteryx hoodie jacket
which he says will definitely take care of the Jan/Feb/Mar cold wind and snows.
After last winter's onslaught (the worst in recent memory)
I heard him mumbling "....just bring it on Old Man Winter, now just bring it on!!"


I ran into mucho furry friends like these 2 Leonbergers and a mini-poodle.
Oh yes, super friendly for sure.


 Lookee here!
Our tails match, not planned in the least.



Very short video (less than one minute) will show you how great a day we had.


Even this Queen of Hearts was holding court high on the rocks!


Come back again soon,
since the New Year 2016
is looming on the horizon!

CHEERS!!
