I was out for a walk
and on my walk is a gully full of trees.
I decided to take a few pictures because it’s a pretty spot surrounded by scab of careless city planning and as I was doing that I thought I heard something.
It took me a minute, but I figured that all I was hearing were some noisy birds, some cars and a few barking dogs. But you know that wasn’t it, that wasn’t what I was hearing.
It nagged at me. I couldn’t figure out what that ‘almost’ sound was.
So to distract myself, I decided to check out the pictures I had grabbed and that’s when I noticed that the trees in my pictures were covered with vines.
The vines are thick and nasty looking and I think, from what I’ve recently , they can kill those trees.
Now I think I know what I was hearing.
I think I heard screaming.
DAILY ADDICTIONS: Weird
Anita Marie here.
I can’t blog today, it’s my dog’s Birthday, he’s turning five years old and we will be celebrating.
It was quiet as a cemetery
out on that trail
and it made me wonder
what was hiding
in the pond, under the trees, beneath the rocks
and in the hearts of the occasional hiker
who passed my way.
RDP Friday: HIKE
Hiking with your dog, no matter where you go, will always be the best hikes that you will EVER take
It is a fact, it is science.
To bolster my position on this matter, here are some fun things I saw with my dog Hamish Macbeth when we were out and about.
Hamish is a rebel, a rule breaker, a kitchen counter surfer extraordinaire and he does NOT care
about your stupid signs:
We found a DB once- well, he thought it was and I let him have his moment.
It was Halloween after all.
Hamish is still my BFF even after I took a picture of a dinosaur trying to bit his butt.
Well, it was a chalk dinosaur but we were in the moment so it was real and he really was not thrilled to have to sit when we could be WALKING!!!
We found a dog park where Hamish could run around in the woods and play wolf.
At this time Hamish thought he was a cat, but I don’t think the other ‘wolves’ caught on to his secret-
and neither did the few people ( NOT pictured because they thought it was funny Hamish wears pink and WHY would I want a reminder of them? ) who seemed to be distracted by the fact that Hamish wears pink and he is a boy dog.
Boo! Mean people, you blow.
After he saw the eyeballs, he tried to eat the eyeballs.
Then he peed on one.
It wasn’t one of his finer moments and they weren’t our eyeballs.
We took Hamish on a hike in Olympia, Washington and there wasn’t anything he didn’t love about that day. He also slept straight through the night, but that’s probably because he trotted the entire 2 miles.
Just a boy ( well, Hamish and Luis aren’t boys anymore, but you get it ) and his dog and a bay on a warm afternoon.
Hamish was ready to hit the water and swim away.
Swim away to where? You might ask.
Anywhere Hamish would say.
Anywhere in the entire world.
For just a second
for one glorious second
I thought I saw monsters in the woods today.
I was wrong, wasn’t I?
