We had a great time visiting with the whole family in Tucson - really hated to leave. The Wx was perfect, got to shop in a couple Oriental markets - even got a 27" wok. Max was definitely the star of the show. My son and his wife are going to have their hands full with him. He is already working on being the class clown.

One tough lamb - how many of us could smile after having our legs ripped off? She'll really need that sit down job now!!

Dog Day Afternoon

Saturday was a lovely day, to nice ot spoend cooped up so Mrs. Phos and I went tot the park to check out "Petpalooza" an event put on by pet rescue organizations and vendors to raise awareness about the problem of the burgeoning number of unwanted pets. There were booths with pet care products, tips and information, a booth for dog adoption and most of all lots and lots of dogs. It looked as though someone pulled the pin on the breed hand grenade as there were so many varieties of dog from purebred to "severalbred" in the park.

It was a lot fo fun seeing all the dogs, talking with the owners and just generally having a great time.

Other Kinds of Birds

Winds have abated somewhat and the day was cool, only in the 80's. It is supposed to be back into the 90's over the weekend, so I have that going for me, which is nice.

Sharp Bird

That time of year when a young bird's fancy turns to love and then feeding the hungry brood that results. The pictures are of a local bird called a Cactus Wren that uses the cactus as a built in defense for it's tunnel-like nest.

Desert Huskies

One question that almost always comes up when I say I have huskies is how they keep cool in the summer. Yukon has his own personal fan and spends a lot of quality time with it in the summer. Austrella is mixed with something so she has very short fur and likes to lie in the sun and work on her dog tan.

We also keep out a lot of fresh water and keep the A/C going for the pups. The other cooling technique is more natural - they shed big time.

Phos's Very Lovely Day

Actually I cannot take credit for such a beautiful day, but it was very nice. A few streaky clouds, warm, but not hot - not too many of these left, before long we'll hit the 90's and then up into the 100's. I miss driving to work in the dark, the cool quiet morning along the flight line. But being solar powered to some degree the sparkling days are more than welcome...

Mute Monday: Powers

Saturday, April 05, 2008


I was trying out a 50mm lens, took pictures of Yukon and Austrella and thought I'd share them with you. They were both out helping me watch the sunset last evening. Tonight they'll be out helping me grill...

6 word meme

Been tagged multiple times, sort of a tag plague, I guess.

6 words that describe my present life:

Stuck in time, place, life - crap.

Call of the Curd

I first felt the yearning a couple of days ago, a longing for the fresh golden squeaky taste of the cheese curd. Near impossible to describe the experience of biting into a fresh curd, it is something that needs to be experienced first hand. The important thing is that the curds have to be fresh - only one way to ensure that, you have to journey to the nearest cheese factory. Once in a while I see them in shiny plastic packages at the market and am tempted to pluck them from their hook and eat them, but in seconds my common sense returns and I realize these industrial strength curd's time has come and gone, it will taste like an old piece of cheddar and worst of all no squeak.

To assuage this desire I will be making a pilgrimage back to the home of the curd some time this Fall. I am going to attempt to squeeze in between mosquito season and blizzard season, so 'round about October. Besides, there should be plenty of Leinie's Oktoberfest available around that time.
