Even the weeds look beautiful today.

Pebbles the Chihuahua

Poor Pebbles scratched her eye on something yesterday and has to wear a protective collar.
But even with a "Lamp Shade" on, she keeps on smiling!

Thank You

Morning Walk

After a long night, it's reassuring to wake up to a beautiful morning.

The Sand Fire

Even as it appears to be just beyond our back yards, the fire is still a couple of miles away according to this map.   www.geomac.gov

The Sand Fire

Everybody's eyes were turned towards the mountains last night as it seemed the fire was just about to come over the hill.

The Sand Fire

This is a map from GeoMac.gov .  A government agency that makes these maps from satellite and human data and posts it on the web for the fire departments to use in planning.  Black circles represent areas that burned in the last 24 hours, yellow in the last 12 hours and red represents currently burning.  This map was copied at 7:15 AM on Sunday morning.

The Sand Fire

 These should be the last of the Sand Fire pictures.  The fire has moved away and isn't a threat for now.

The Sand Fire

Morning Walk

The smoke from the Sand Fire is dominating the morning sky.  Ash is falling like a light snow and the sun glows an eerie orange.

The Sand fire is making the night sky orange!


 It's hard to be a flower when it 106° in the shade.

Smoke in the Sky

A fire has broken out in Canyon Country!

L.A. Zoo?

An MTA Bus in the park looking for the L.A. Zoo.  They've come to the right place.  I guess our secret is out!


A couple more weeks and they'll be ripe!
