Go figure


So today, and that would be two days after the day before yesterday, we walked higher up the hill, expecting to find a spectacular sunset.


But the sky had no color, no color at all. Which left one of us disappointed and


the other one, amazed.

  1. I imagine Albert would be amazed no matter what, sky or not, color or not. Albert is an amazish kind of guy.

  2. Ha ha, so true, Petrea. I love that amazished face in the last photo! Yesterday I went up above Eaton Canyon expecting to see the Pacific gleaming in the distance, but there was a yellow brown layer of smog over LA. Such a change from the day before, and also the day after.

  3. Albert! Is that the name of your dog? I was wondering :)

    I loved the sunset sky in your last post. You're obviously far away from all the dreadful icy images that are playing on the news channels these days.

  5. Sounds so good to walked higher up the hill, principally with a lovely friend!
    Albert looks very cheerful.
    Beautiful view from the hill.

  6. Simply stated, Albert is easily amused. That's just how he rolls.

  7. Albert has a poetic soul. Tommy only gets that delirious look when a piece of chicken or a slab of steak is coming his way.

  8. That's what I love about my dog. Everything is amazing and cause for celebration.

  9. Albert's reaction to just about everything in life can be summed up by the phrase, "Don't that just beat all."

  10. Karin, that is so right. Is that why we love dogs? They remind us of the WOW factor in just about everything.

  11. I would love to see Albert and Ranger, the TWIN Gomer's of the canine universe, hanging out together, being all totaly AMAZISHED!

  13. I'm going to take a leaf from Albert's book next time I'm tempted to be disappointed. Life is a grand and amazing thing, even when the sunset is colourless. Give him a big slobbery hug for me, KB.

  15. PA's right, the guy is always at the circus. He's equally pleased and thrilled by bareback riders, elephants, or oxygen.

  16. But isn't that easy thrill biz one of the things we love most about dogs? Why can't humans be so easily and completely pleased?

    I've heard explanations of what makes a good sunset (more than clouds alone), but I forgotten it several times.

  18. Dang!!! I hate when that happens...where'd all that beautiful color go??? Albert is simply expressing his gratitude that his ploy worked...his dog's nose knew there wasn't going to be a gorgeous sunset...but why tell and miss out on a great walk with his person???

  19. A good walk is never wasted. Albert knows that!

  20. Everything looks better through Albert's eyes, which explains why dogs will eat anything.

  21. Since dogs allegedly don't see colors, I'm sure the sky was brilliant in Albert's eyes!

  22. The sky has some colour today, KB! Many shades of grey.

  23. Not only was he amazed, he was starving. Did you bring his snacks?

  24. I'll take those less-than-colorful sunsets, with all that good hiking close at hand.

  25. The simple pleasures of the day
    we humans can not comprehend

  26. Albert is so darn cute! It's nice to an easily amazed and/or amused pooch.
