It Stumped Me!


 Hey Ron!
Wait for me will you!



The park is very grey today
you can tell there is something in the air.


But what is it?
You got me stumped!


Could it be Ol' Man Winter
deciding to visit finally!?


The video will show you what I mean about being stumped.
(around the 1:20 min mark)


The sky is shielding the sun
with a gauzy ethereal haze.


Well, being stumped really fooled me....
and takes on a whole new meaning now!


I'll recognize a 'stump' the next time.


But right now we have to get home
before all this around is white, white, white!

Later Gator!

OH BTW...
Daddy Ron had to turn on his
dreaded
WORD VERIFICATION
because of the onslaught of
spam junk...
please be kind now!

    1. What a grand time they must have had...working their way through the trees inhaling the refreshing evergreen smell and going into that zone of contentment...Cheers!

  4. Those are some pretty cool woods you get to walk in Sophie. I love the way you just froze when you first saw that stump. When your Daddy asked you which way you wanted to go, you looked so cute the way you cocked your head with your ball in your mouth. You are just too sweet! We have been getting a lot of spam lately too. :(

  6. SophieDoodle, doesn't your spam go in your spam box? Did it escape? I saw the previous post with the colors and it is unbelievable. And I watched the video here and noticed that the tall pines look just like the Swedish ones. Hadn't seen that over here before. And you look adorable when stumped. OK, you know I'm a bit too old for word verification, but for you I will try.

    1. Sorry about the W.V. Inger...the spam was getting on my nerves....one specific post a few months back they kept picking on and I had enough of it, so hopefully this will clobber them for awhile...in the mean time...keep clicking the little box until you see a clear set of numbers and letters...that's what I do.
      The pines are so majestic aren't they...this area was devastated in 2003 from a hurricane so the trees are starting to grow back. 10 years almost seems like yesterday. Have a great Sunday and hang in there with W.V.!

  7. Nooooooo . . . not the dreaded word verification!!! Oh the pain of it all . . . we are suffering . . . Mom can never read that thing cuz she is old and has old eyes. Please, we beg you to reconsider!! What if Santa Paws tries to leave a comment?? He cannot read word verification and Sophie will miss the message. Please don't let Sophie suffer from the evil work of a creepy spammer. How about comment moderation?? Pleeeeeeeease???????

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    Pee Ess - If that was not enough begging we have some more.

    1. I heard you LOUD and CLEAR...I wouldn't want Sophie to miss out on Xmas pressies and such....I apologize to IngerDoodle and Murphy's Mom...I know exactly how frustrating the W.V. can be but seeing that spam get a leg hold irks me to no end. SO I've gotten rid of it...see how easy I am to get along with!

      Cheers!

  12. I enjoyed your post and the video of Sophie getting stumped. I also enjoyed hearing a Nova Scotian accent! That is always music to my ears. I haven't had any spamming yet, but it sounds bad! Word verification is tricky, because I can't always make out the letters, but I'll do whatever. We could really use some snow here, Sophie. It's so warm and dry it's scary. Have a good week.

    1. Jim says it's my Valley accent...as if he didn't have one....North end Halifax. I'll talk your ear off if that makes you feel better! LOL Sorry about the W.V. thingie...I was overloaded with spam and was afraid that something might stick or someone might get "crazy in the head" and click a link...that could be so unfair and mean I think. Anyway, 2 followers convinced me to return to my old ways so W.V. has gone to the wolves. Hope your week is full of pre-Xmas excitement...later gator!

    2. It was that accent that attracted this here city boy to that thar valley boy back in '73. Thought he was speaking another language, I did!

      Delete
    3. 1973! Wow! You've known Ron a long time. I know Capers sound different, but I can't say I am an expert in North end Halifax accents. All I know is, it's pretty bad when your own siblings speak with an accent. After almost 40 years living in the US, I sound more American than Canadian. And Canadians definitely have an accent! All I can say is any variety of Nova Scotian speech is music to my ears!

    4. I hear you loud and clear, eh!

  13. Your pictures and the feel of the video all make me think of snow too! By the way, Sophie, don't worry about being leery of the stump, Todd was a little reluctant to go near a flowerpot yesterday ...

    PS: Ron, love hearing your voice and the accent! :-)

    2. Whoa! -33 c! I know how cold that is! I wouldn't go out either! Smart dachshunds, even if it's just -12 C where you are! We tried little boots and a coat for our dachshund when I lived in northern Canada, but that didn't work too well! Stay warm!
