A few scenes from Saturday and Sunday

I did a bit of running….15 miles total!

Saturday run

This was Saturday, 10 miles. And I did get a migraine later in the day but it was due to not eating until much later than I should have.

And this was Sunday. 5 miles in the neighborhood and I felt great.

I wish I could say I’ve also been killing the planks but unfortunately, I have been quite lax in that area.  I did manage a 2 minute one on Saturday but that was it.  I’ll get back to it though.

I made nachos for a really late lunch on Saturday and they were awesome.


The reason lunch was so late was because I had some landscaping to do and some trimming to get done around the house.  I only managed a few projects because there were a few garage sales calling my name.

I got a kick ass ball jar in blue and when I finished trimming the front hibiscus bushes, I put it to good use.


And in keeping with the theme of home cooking I decided to make one of MacGyver’s favorites, beans and cornbread.  Only I made a special cornbread in the shape of ducks.


Cute isn’t it? We had to give some to the dogs because they love it.

I am planning on doing some more landscaping this afternoon but take a look at this,

This is my angry face.  The I cannot believe this shit face, (and the my hair looks like shit face,) all rolled into one, see if you can tell what’s wrong…

i'm pissed.

This is not happening, please tell me this is a temporary thing….

It’s the dreaded blue screen of death………..sort of…..

It’s back up now but if this happens again, I’m gonna shoot it. Maybe.

See ya on Monday!

What are you doing this weekend?

What do you do when your computer takes a crap?

Friday Photos from the phone, by Boomer

What up? Boomerton G. Pinkerton here, Boomer for short. My human is really busy playing catch up with some work so I decided to go ahead and update the blog for her lest she forget another post. I’m pretty sure she might be getting a case of the old timers but don’t tell her, okay?

I’ve decided to keep up with her tradition of posting Friday photos from the phone but I’m going to post some of my favorites too. Let me just look and see what I can find…

let me see
Okay, here’s a good one. This is a picture of me in the car. I love to ride in the car but the real story here is how handsome I look.  Look deep into my eyes…..

I should be in a magazine. Somebody get me an agent!

And this is a stealth shot my human took when I wasn’t paying attention. I like to stretch and scratch my back in the morning but I don’t like it when people are watching.  I might also be a little vulnerable when I’m laying on my back because once I woke up and there were some things missing in my nether region.  I still don’t know what happened but I have a fear of white lab coats…hmmmmmmmm

Lab stretching
Here’s a random gif that I like to look at on the big TV. This dog actually has a really important job, he’s a beer guard. My human gave me a similar job once except I only had to watch one glass.  I ended up drinking from it.  I couldn’t help myself.

My human says I can’t be trusted with alcohol. He might be right, I do have a hell of a time trying to control my licker. But hey, when it comes to crumbs, I’m your guy.  Check out how I handle cracker crumbs on the sofa.

See, I told ya!  You got a crumb situation, you call me.

This is my brother Hank. I like to call him the flea, he sort of bugs me sometimes but we’re actually really close.

two doggiesSay hi Hank.

Even though he bugs me I love the little booger.  He’s like my personal little chew toy. He even lets me chew on his head.

Awe, come here little buddy.

brotherly love
We might not look alike but at least we’re good looking. We could look like these two ugly things.

two dogs hugging

I find this emotionally disturbing.

One more thing I love about my brother is that he lets me use his bed.  It’s really cozy and fit’s me perfectly.

It might be a tad small.

When we were down south visiting with Grandma and Grandpa and hanging out at our other house, we got to play outside a lot.  When were at home in Clearwater we get limited play time lately.  The human says there’s a coyote around town and since I’m bigger and faster I have to protect my brother when we go out by ourselves.

I don’t see how a coyote could get over our fence and I think my human is paranoid.  She told me that coyotes were small and she said they weren’t all that fast, she said they’re just mean…….but I googled it.

This is why you can never trust your human completely and you need to learn the google.

And now it’s that time, I have to go take my human for a walk or she gets cranky but before I go, I have a few more of my favorite pictures.

This one is my toy collection. It’s not all of my toys but these are some of my favorites. Every morning I get up before anybody else and I dump out my big basket and choose a few, or 10 of them, to play with.

And this one is my favorite picture. This is me kissing my human, I call her Mommy.

I love this human!

I love this human!

My Mommy will be back tomorrow.  In the meantime, I hope you have a snifferific day!  Get out there and get some fresh air, sniff the grass, smell all the things, pee on a new spot of grass, and enjoy life!

Peace out!  Boom.  See what I did there?

Now tell me do you have a dog?  One with a blog?

My internal GPS is faulty, or not there.

Looks like I missed a post yesterday, oops.

We’ve been down south since Sunday morning and just got back home late last night. What is typically an hour and 10 minute trip took three hours last night because MacGyver decided to go around the skyway bridge and then to South Tampa because, batteries.

yep, the long way
Yes MacGyver had to pick up some batteries at a Home Depot, the only one within a 100 mile vicinity that had the ones he wanted, on the cheap. Of course it probably cost us the difference in fuel…but whatever.

The point is after that super long trip we’ve decided we will never go around the bridge again and if it’s ever closed, (which happens from time to time), we’ll wait it out.

There’s a valuable lesson here somewhere…oh yeah, bridges are hella convenient!

scary bridgeAnd sometimes scary as hell but then again so is three hours in the car with my dogs.

I ran 3 miles around the neighborhood in Englewood yesterday. I wanted to stay close to the house because there was a rain storm coming. It turned out to be a bad idea because I ended up getting lost in the neighborhood. Yes, the neighborhood. Yes, less than a mile away.  Yes, I turned the GPS on my phone on to find my way back, which was literally 2 blocks away.

the race of no sense of direction
I obviously have no sense of direction.  At all.

I knew it was going to rain again this morning but I still wanted to get a few miles in after my fail yesterday so I put on my rain jacket and went out to run. It was pretty slow going for the first few miles because I had to watch out for serious puddles and debris that was in the street but it got better.

When I was heading into the last mile a little dog came bolting out of his house and straight toward me. I was a little worried that he would run into the busy street because as I ran, he began to chase me.

So, I turned around and ran toward him hoping to scare him back toward his house. I was saying ‘it’s okay little buddy, run home’, ‘go home little guy’, ‘don’t follow me sweetie, go home’.

And then little guy ran back for a hot minute, turned around and looked at me like this:

mean dog
Nice.  It’s always the little ones….

Anyways, I’m back home now and we’ve got a little break in the rain so I’m going to get out there and walk my monsters.

How is your sense of direction?
When’s the last time that you got lost?
