Fido & Me — Muzzle Man

September 14, 2012

“What the heck is THIS?” Fido wanted to know.

“It’s a bag of treats!”

“Hey hey hey hey!” he said. “What’s that other thing?”

“Oh this little old thing?” I said, and reached—tentatively— into the shopping bag. “It’s a muzzle, Fido, and it goes around your nose and mouth, kind of like your Gentle Leader.”

“I hate it already,” Fido said.

“Yeah, I know, but you can’t have one, the bag of treats, without the other, you big red lug. It’s going to snow pretty soon, and we have to get used to you wearing this thing, or they won’t let you on the bus.”

Dancing in the woods- again- this time surrounded by art

September 7, 2012

It has been an unforgettable summer and this weekend kept the momentum going into fall.
With the sounds of bluegrass music coming from the Village and a breathtaking art festival at Sam’s Woodsite, life in Mammoth keeps getting better and better.

Summer time—for most of us—is the best time to kick back and enjoy the outdoor beauty and calm weather.
Autumn usually slows down, but not for us. Every weekend in September is jam-packed with activities and drinking opportunities.

Fido & Me — Autumn Musings

September 7, 2012

“Hey where did everybody go?” Fido wanted to know. “One minute this place is hoppin’ crazy wild, and the next, nothing. No new dogs to play with. No new sounds. What happened to the hiss of mountain bike tires on the road? And the squealing kids in the pool?”

“Take it easy, Fido,” I said. “It’s that time of the year. A lot of the visitors have gone home. They’re going back to school. They’re going back to work. We’ll see them again next summer, I promise.”
“But, but, but …”

Jonny Walker's "Last Call" — A mud run on the rocks

September 5, 2012

On Friday afternoon, if you were trying to drive up Canyon Blvd, you would have been surprised to see a sight unique to this town—a large gathering of mud covered teams dressed in strange but matching outfits all showering together in the middle of the road.

Edison Theatre announces ambitious 2012-13 season

September 1, 2012

The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre this week announced its season, beginning Oct. 4 with ‘The Marvelous Wonderettes” and ending May 3 with a return of the Long Beach City College Studio Singers.

Between those shows are a host of productions in the theatre’s most ambitious season yet. “We are excited to be able to expand our season this year,” said Shira Dubrovner, the artistic director.

“Two projects we’ve done, ‘Theatre for Young Audiences’ and ‘Evening with the Stars,’ we’ve not done together in the same season due to cost and staff restraints,” Dubrovner said.

Fido & Me — Storytime at Mammoth Rocks

August 31, 2012

“What a cute boy!” said the stranger.

“Who, me?!?!?” Fido asked, blushing.

The stranger walked over to Fido, who was blissfully sitting under a table at last weekend’s “Mammoth Rocks/A Taste of the Sierra” festival in the Village. He was manning the booth for the paper.

“Are you the dog in the paper all the time?” she said.

“That’s me!” Fido said, and he wagged his stump.

“Want to hear a story?” Fido said to the woman.

“Why, yes, Fido,” she responded. “I love stories.”

Fido wormed his way from beneath the table—not an easy thing to do for a big, red, 80-pound chow mix.

Fido & Me — Glued In

August 24, 2012

“Today we’re going to do some weather stripping,” I said to Fido.

“Hey hey hey hey! I LOVE weather stripping,” he said. “It’s only just about my favorite thing in the whole wide world.”

Fido paused.

“What’s weather stripping?”

“It’s when you have an opening in a door or a window that you want to block. You see that small little sliver at the bottom of our door? I’m going to fix that, and I’m not going to buy a new door. I’m going to fetch some weather stripping from the hardware store, install it, and things will be hunky-dory for the winter. No drafts this year, no siree.”
