Here is my weekly challenge for "I Heart Faces". This week is focused on "tooshies"...bottoms. This photo was taken just before everyone noticed that this tree was barely held up. Almost had bottoms up!
We went to the American Music Awards last night! Highlights: Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Green Day, Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, The Black Eyed Peas, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban. Lowlights: J-Lo fell, Lady Gaga is a freak-but great performer, Adam Lambert went too far-sick, Michael Jackson-(who gets awards for songs produced years ago?), Taylor Swift-not there to accept the awards.
I love dogs. Big dogs, little dogs, blue dogs, red dogs.... But their owners?... Not so much. Today is a great day to walk on the beach. It is warm and not a cloud in the sky. Days like today are good school skipping days. We call them "snow days" even though it never snows here. I'll be taking my camera down there later this afternoon. Sam will surf and I'll dawg watch.
Limb in the Sand - By Patti Prizler 2009
I spotted a man Along the sandy shore Heard the waves Crashing with a roar.
Choosing to run ahead A dog once close by him Left a surprise, The size of his limb.
Good ol’ guy, One you like to befriend. Grabbed his bag To the limb he would tend.
Swiftly walking As the dog scampered on Glanced from his height Wishing it was gone.
And in my shock Of his great dog’s blunder I found myself in awe Of the great way to cover.
His foot took a swipe Of a large lump of sand - Couldn’t believe what I saw ‘Cuz guess where it had land!
Right over the limb, Never skipping a step This guy kept his bag, And the poop he just let!
Turning back to the shore, Calling the dog to his side He sat next to his girlfriend No angst did he grind.
I wanted to scream, Poop has been banned How dare he leave, That limb in the sand!
I love this time of year. The marine layer comes in every evening just as the sun is setting. The seagulls congregate until some surfer strolls into their space and off in the distance the oil rigs blend in with the palm trees.
Maggie's boyfriend, Nick, is on the left. What a trooper he was. We dressed him up in my Scooby Doo outfit and he went walking with us downtown Main Street in Huntington Beach. Nick is 6'2" and with Scooby on him, he was one tall Scoob. Almost EVERY child that saw him, ran up to him and wanted to touch him. Nick was so gracious. He stopped for every kid and even took a photo or two. Here is a small Scooby. Get a load of the glow on this kid! So excited to see another dog! This is me in the car as we're driving down to Main Street. I crack myself up. I love this mask. A few years back, I went as a disco Ape. Had the tight bell bottoms, leather jacket, peace sign and boom box. After Nick, I just scared them away. Hope your Halloween was more than hollow.
