Up the Slope Pt 1


Today my Dads attended a funeral of someone they didn't know,
but was close to Jim's sister... her partner's father.


I came along too,
and waited patiently in the car
while they attended the service...
the temperature was cool
so leaving me in the vehicle with
the windows down was just fine.


When they returned to the car,
we headed into the city to get something to eat
and finally found a take out sandwich/salad/everything else place....
major jackpot...the food is unbelievably good.


The weather began to change and the humidity
started smothering us again.


So we headed home because Ron gets headaches
when the weather changes this quickly.


He slept for a couple hours and 
then they wanted to know if I wanted
to go to MacDonald Hill for some fresh air!
Imagine having to ask....!


Am I grateful?


I'll sit and pose for anyone if I can come here
and soak up the view and fresh breezes.


I've learned that listening usually gets me what I want...
and you just wouldn't believe
what I got up and over that hill 
behind!

Follow me up the path and you'll see!

  3. Hi Sophie
    I am sorry the dad had to die. I think it was nice of you to go along with your dads to the service though.
    And its always great when headaches go away, and you can go do something that makes your heart feels good.
    love

  14. Hi Y'all,

    Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a visit. I'm so glad y'all could make it!

    Tell Ron my Human sends her sympathy. She gets terrible migrains when the weather changes and often they combine with her allergies to lay her low like the flu for days. On those days, since I'm really a Mama's dog, she struggles up to take me for business outs and feed me. Hey, Papa fends for himself...he's got hands. ;)

    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. The humidity is the killer...just ain't fair....we aren't used to it here in Nova Scotia...at least the amount of days we've had...we aren't tropical we are a temperate zone...anyway, we are learning techniques to deal with the heat. Is this a global warming warning?

  15. Okay, I'm ready! Let's go over the hill!
