Off the Trail- Under Water

June 7, 2013

The sun is hot, the sky is as blue as the underwing of a Steller’s jay, and it’s raining—raining hard.

The rain comes down in great sheets, dropping from the cloudless blue sky, catching the hot light, casting rainbows against the silver granite rock.

Somewhere up ahead, beyond the crashing river drainage below and the tall granite walls above, comes the sound of thunder.

The ground begins to shake; it feels like walking into the teeth of a storm, except the air is warm and fragrant and the sun is shining through the rainbows.

Fido & Me - Bang for the Bark

May 15, 2013

 

“I like this one,” Fido said “Let’s pee on the tires!”

“You have that all mixed up, Fido. You don’t do that when you’re looking at cars. You can kick the tires, sure, but that’s more a human thing. Dogs don’t kick really well.”

“OK, then, let’s look under the hood!”

Fido & Me — Casino Dog

May 3, 2013

 

“What’s the deal with the blue leash?” Fido asked. “I usually have a red leash. Not complaining, just wondering.”

 

Fido & Me — Crash Test Dummies

April 25, 2013

 

“Why are we upside down?” Fido wanted to know. “Why does my butt hurt so much? And why is the roof suddenly the floor, and the floor suddenly the roof?”

 

Theater Dog

April 20, 2013

 

“Wow, not a single joke in there, except for the title,” Fido said.

“You expected a comedy?”

“I figured “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woof!” was about dogs. It’s in the title.”

“Oh Fido, you have been misled once again.  It’s not ‘woof!’ as in a bark, it’s ‘Woolf’ as in a name.”

“They should have made that clear. I am easily misled.”

Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?: A Theatre Review

As endings go, it would be hard to top Mammoth’s local theatre company.

The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre (MLRT) ends its season with a fiery explosion in the form of the expletive-laced, tremulous relationship between George and Martha in Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

Fido & Me - Play Ball

April 8, 2013

 

“I’m not sure I was cut out to be a center fielder,” Fido panted.

“But you’re a dog!” I said. “It seems like you’d be a natural.”

“Not really. My legs don’t work that way. I’m mostly a chow-chow. Ever hear of a Hall-of-Fame chow in center field?”

“Now that you mention it, no.”

Off The Trail- Meet the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister

April 3, 2013

 

Lower Rock Creek trail, one of the best early season hikes in the area, holds many secrets—including the Devils Postpile’s forgotten little sister.

Rock Creek is best known as the beautiful creek that meanders through the meadows above Rock Creek Lake, under the black and white striped turrets and ramparts of Bear Creek Spire, then down along the road from Mosquito Flats to Tom’s Place.

Fido & Me - Spring Sniffs

April 3, 2013

 

“My sniffer is working again!” Fido yelled.

“Pray tell, my big fine fellow,” said I.

“It’s like someone just flipped the ‘on’ switch! Don’t you sense all these fine whiffs?”

“Human aren’t that tuned in to sniffs, like dogs.”

“That’s too bad. Let’s go over here! No! Over here! No! Over there!”

Needy Fido

March 7, 2013

 

“Geez Fido, get out of the way, will ya? It’s about the third time today I’ve almost tripped over you.”

“I was just making sure you knew I was still here,” Fido said.

“It’s not like anybody could miss you. You’re 80 pounds of Big Red Lug.”

“But I don’t care about anybody. I care about you, you, and you.”
