Word is out.
Word has it.
I am a big tease!
Just look at these big eyes.
Nothing but a big tease
when you look into them, eh !

The unusual
the 'out of the norm'
the splendidly colourful
is what we found on the beach recently ~

laying scattered all over the sand.

Mr. Orangie was most intrigued
checking out these roses 
snuggled up with the seaweed and rocks.

The ocean was persistent
pushing more and more waves
onto the sand and rocks
leaving the roses smothered in bubbles.

How they got here is anybody's guess, really.

What do you think caused the invasion of the pink/red roses
on this blue/grey day?
Dean Martin will serenade you as you figure this one out.

Light as a feather
moving with the tides
over the rocks
with the help of the breezes

Is this too much?

Hi everyone!
It's Jim and myself
checking out the seafoam
smothering the shoreline again.

See what I mean !!

This really makes me want to have a latte
since the fresh air
walk warrant it.
Wouldn't you agree?

Tripping along minding my own beeswax
that's all I was doing
when from out of the blue ~

this little munchkin
covered in a mini-Hudson's Bay baby blanket
(at least that's what it looked like to me)

started growling at me 
the nerve 
the outright audacity

a circle dance ensued
it's a good thing Mr. Orangie
was stuffed in my mouth
I'm just sayin'

it's so hard to get some respect around here,
I get more RESPECT from my girlfriend Aretha  •*¨*•♫♪

SHHHhhhh !!
~~ it's me INCOGNITO ~~
I have my eye on this patrol car
because they are eating
and I have on my new jacket!!!!!

Now I'm at the park
as the shadows hide me 
as I stealthily trek my way 
down the paths.
Do you see what's on my back?

Yup, it's my new PURPLE JACKET ~

suiting me and Mr. Orangie just fine
keeping us nice and warm

as Jim leads me past the frozen pond

yes Jim 
it is very frozen
it's December 
in Nova Scotia
So I think everyone should 
♪♫•*¨*•"start wearing purple"•*¨*•♫♪
because it'll perk you up on a cold winter's day.
Check out the video and you'll see why.

just a little gypsy punk
for all you eclectic music lovers

Fridays, come around so very quickly in my neck of the woods 
as Jim approaches 
doorstep as he drops me off for the day.

Mary and Stephanie
keep a diary of the day's goings on
which you can view and read 
at this link . <
(click the word link to open your eyes even wider)

Take a moment and you'll see how much fun I truly have.

  I got to visit all my friends
~ doggies, horses and humans ~
alike at the daycare on the hill.

At the end of my stay today,
Owen (left) and 2 look-a-likes 
greet Ron and Jim as they come to pick me up.

Isaac gives them a woof
says everything's OK
and that I'm allowed to go home.

 This amply full little birdhouse
 of warm feathers and such
seems to add to the feeling here ~

a feeling of serenity amongst the canines and ~ 

and horses,
Tony, Tallen and Topaz
always keeping their eyes open for me
because I can get mighty frisky with them.
They just ignore me though.

The sun is setting as I mosey to the car
and curl up in the backseat
realizing that I am so fortunate to be able 
to take this all in one more time.

Never take anything for granted, folks.

May I introduce you to my new DBFF 
(Doodle Boyfriend Forever)
(as in Harley Davidson apparently)

He is sniffing me while his Grandparents
Corinne and Walter 
smile at Jim as he snaps our pictures.

We played and swam as hard as any Doodle could play
because Harley's a Doodle too.

 Neck chewing is part of our ritual
while the adults walk along the Atlantic View Trail.

But my best moment on the whole walk was the 2 step with Harley.

He was so frisky
I mean frisky.

See what I mean !
What's a girl supposed to do anyway.

Phew, I got out of that one quickly.
Harley is in love, me thinks.
He's a youngster just about a year old
I will be 8 years old in February.
Does that make me a cougar?

Let's get out of here Ron.
I am totally exhausted 
after that romp in the hay.
