Crazy George

OK, it is official...we are convinced (as well as our Veterinarian) that our 18 lb. George is not a "Teacup Chihuahua" that the Pet store salesman (our son) told us he was five years ago. We all believe he is some kind of Terrier mix. Hmm....we have papers for him, but they must be bogus....
This kind of reminds me of the story a friend of mine told me about his friend that went to a nice restaurant in NY and gave his keys to his new Cadillac to the Valet driver out front. When dinner was over he went to the front of the restaurant and handed his valet ticket to the head waiter for his car....the waiter told the man that he was sorry but that their restaurant did not offer valet parking....the man's face dropped and said "but I have a valet ticket"......needless to say he caught a cab home that night...a duped man.. George did not cost quite as much as a Cadillac...but close..

Blackberry Shots

One of the bummers of work travel is that I can't bring my digital SLR camera with me due to it's size and weight. I am left relying on my Blackberry phone to take pictures. Once in a while I get lucky and get some decent shots. All of these were taken from an airplane window seat...

Seattle waterfront...Mt St. Helens volcano
Mount Rainier
Snowy Denver (taken yesterday)

Cushman Trail Amphibians & Gastropods

Cindi and I took a walk today on Cushman trail (phase 2). We experienced quite the Spring mix of weather. Nice warm sunshine and freezing rain all within one hour.

While walking we kept noticing Salamander's and one large slug... I don't believe there were any casualties on the walk..

Good morning Gig Harbor! (Towhee style)

This happy Towhee was singing away this morning on my early morning walk... I think he is excited about Day light savings and the fact that Spring is just around the bend...

Cindi and I were fortunate to visit Cancun Mexico this past week. This was our first time we had been to Cancun and we enjoyed it very much. The beaches and water were amazing. The wildlife also is unbelievable. Here are some shots...

This picture of this lighthouse and newly married couple was taken from a Catamaran that we were sailing on at the very tip of Cancun ....
If you click on this picture taken from my seat on our airplane you can actually see the light house on the very end of the point!
Cool birds...
Black Iguana
Amazing beach
Ant eater type of critter called an Coati
Large rodent called an Agouti...
