Hello! It’s me!
Are you tired of people shooting up concert goers with military-grade weapons? Hurricanes? Family strife on “This is Us?” I know I am.
So I’ve taken a little time over the past few weeks to relax, to stop and smell the roses as the pundits say, #amirite?
A few weeks ago, we headed up to Flagstaff to spend a weekend camping with two of my dear friends. We enjoyed some SiriusXM radio on the way up #GeorgyPorgy.
We drove a few miles along historic Route 66.
They have all sorts of stops for the hungry pup.
Mmmmmmm … Fritos.
It was a freezing cold weekend … it got down to 29 degrees on Saturday night. Temperatures like that require a classic combination … libations and artificial propane-infused fire.
I spent a little bit of time digging around for crunchables (visit the website if you cannot see the video via email).
Mmmmmm …. crunchables!
Mom made Dad a spectacular pillow case to celebrate one of his favorite movie characters.
All in all it was big-time fun! Sometimes you have to get away from the chaos of our planet. Catalonia wants to be independent of Spain? Sure. But in my world I don’t want to be independent of anybody. I want to hang out … and on this weekend, I didn’t spend time evaluating threats #rustedmetals but instead I was part of something bigger … I belonged to something.
I’m a firm believer that the doxie can unify all of us in ways that partisan and judgmental political pundits could never possibly accomplish. Want proof? Take a close look at the ad board from this soccer match.
Yup, that’s a doxie, and s/he runs across the ad board while booping a soccer ball of of his/her nose. We’re bringing people together … 55,000 at a time!
Speaking of being together, my birth Mom (#notmycurrentmom) is about to give birth to four half-brothers / half-sisters. Look at how those little muffins are stuffed in there!
There’s a lot to be happy about. Take your mind off of the chaos and go experience life! That’s what I do.
