Happy Birthday to ME on Final Fiction Nature Friday!

Today all the stars have aligned and not only do Nature Friday and Final Friday Fiction fall on the same day this month, it is also MY BIRTHDAY!! To celebrate, I wrote a special birthday reflection using pictures from my ocean! Of course, Mama and Daddy also mentioned there will be cookies and vanilla yogurt later this evening!

For my birthday "page 87"  Mama picked lines from the cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas written by Hunter S. Thompson.
-line 8 ~ to avoid a nasty scene
-line 12 ~ It was his idea
-line 16 ~ You'd better take care

Make sure to visit YAM Aunty HERE to get the Rulez and join the fun!!

As I get older, I am learning to appreciate the pawsitive things in life and to avoid getting caught up in negative things...

I try my best not to sweat the small stuff

I try to take an idea an make it a reality...

Enjoy the company of others is something I'm working on

 I appreciate the angels I have had in my life...

....and do my best to enjoy the family I have...
(even my bratty little sister)

I always try to be a shining star...

....but take care to respect others and their opinions...

But the most important thing I have learned is to live each day to the fullest and enjoy everything it has to offer!

The End

Happy Tongue Out Lupine Tuesday

Every year, Mama and I(Arty) head out during my birthday month and search for pretty purple lupines. This year, we found some really beautimous lupines...but guess what??

Mama left the treats for our photoshoot..IN...THE...CAR!!!

So, although we saw some lovely, sunshine-y flowers...

 There were no sunshine-y smileys from me!

Can't fool me, Mama, I know where you are pointing that camera...no smiles for you if you don't have the treats!

I sure hope you learned your lesson Mama.
Now..let's hike back to the car and get those Zuke's!

We are joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday this week!


Nature Friday at Red Canyon - Arty

Hi everybuddy and welcome to Nature Friday!  In real life, I am still on the road and making memories with Mama and Daddy. But, through the magicals of the internet, I can be here with you too!

 I am wrapping up the Bryce Canyon Mini BAR posts with my favorite nature moments from our Mini BAR trip. 

I narrowed it down, and decided my most favorite part of the Mini BAR was the hike we went on Sunday morning at Red Canyon!!

It was my favorite mostly because I was with my beautimous, best gal Mabel!
(ok, maybe Rosy and Jakey were there too)

I have to admit tho, the scenery was pretty spectacular too!

Beautiful blue, blue skies against the colorful red rocks!

The rock faces were pretty magnificent...

...and there were hoodoos everywhere!
A hoodoo (also called a tent rock, fairy chimney, or earth pyramid) is a tall, thin spire of rock that protrudes from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland.

It was amazing, and a bit scary, walking along this trail because the hoodoos looked like they could fall over at any moment!

I wonder how Mother Nature formed an almost perfect circular top to the hoodoo above!

It was really nice to have lots of trees on this hike too. It was very sunny and the trees provided lots of shade along the trails and kept us from getting too warm!

Plus....we could catch up on all the wild life pee mail, BOL!!!

Thanks so much for joining us during the past few weeks as we recapped our Mini BAR adventures. 

Make sure to join me next week, on my birthday,  for a Fun edition of Final Nature Friday Fiction!
