Different Dachshunds

Waking up with a long, hot-water-bottle warm dachshund glued to your side on a morning when the thermometer outside reads -0°F is a lovely thing. Much as I hated to disturb either of us, coffee was calling my name. Rhonda groaned and snuggled closer when I shifted, but heartless human that I am, I wentContinue reading “Different Dachshunds”

Conflicting Feelings

Winter Solstice always brings with it conflicting feelings. It’s the shortest “day” of the year … a bit of a misnomer since we have the same 24 hours as any other day to fumble through, but minimal day-LIGHT to assist us along our way. Here in my little corner of dark, snowy Alaska, the sunContinue reading “Conflicting Feelings”

Not a Pretty Day

When you are trying to squeeze as much quality travel and RV camping as possible into a necessarily limited time-span … in my case, late spring through fall in Alaska – there are going to be days less picturesque than others. Heck, sometimes (like today) it’s just plain cold, wet and dreary. On the otherContinue reading “Not a Pretty Day”

MAYBE SOMEDAY …

Maybe SOMEDAY. “Someday” has always indicated to me a probability of this elusive eventuality actually happening – and of my participating in it. I sure hope that’s still the case. MAYBE someday. “Maybe” used to indicate to me nothing more than a series of choices to debate, or possibly a financial decision or two toContinue reading “MAYBE SOMEDAY …”

Social Distancing Alaska Style

I have a new T-shirt! This (once again) tranquil beach-side campground is most likely going to fill up with weekend campers and fishermen by Friday afternoon, but mid-week, it has been an oasis of quiet. Perfect for social distancing! There is one travel trailer parked well off to my left and behind me. It’s anContinue reading “Social Distancing Alaska Style”

The Wednesday Debacle

Let me start out by saying that Wednesday was an absolute stunner of a summer day at the beach. From beginning to end, it was spectacular. And isn’t that fortunate, since I got to see every little bit of it! Now let me go back to the lead-in to this story. My previous blog coveredContinue reading “The Wednesday Debacle”

Chasing Plastic Bunnies!

My two-year-old small standard dachshund, Rhonda (Goodwood Help Me Rhonda B Good, NW1, BH-O, AKC SWN, TDA) recently discovered the joys of chasing zooming, flapping white plastic-bag-bunnies! Friday afternoon started out with a promise of nice weather, so Ronni and I looked forward to hanging out watching our friends play this dog sport called CATContinue reading “Chasing Plastic Bunnies!”

On the Road Again 🎵🎶🎵

Let’s sing the chorus one more time! Gotta love driving down the highway to Willie Nelson songs. Rhonda doesn’t even seem to mind my singing. 😉 Speaking of things you just gotta love … get this. I had a doctor appointment this morning at 11:00 am. Because of the pandemic, I’ve been doing tele-med appointmentsContinue reading “On the Road Again 🎵🎶🎵”
