Henry Is Trying His Best


Henry is trying his best to get Heidi to be his fellow basset hound friend. She's a tough sell but is growling and running away from him less than she was before. She is slowly coming around. I did not make it to Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone today. There is still time left as it's not even 5pm but I know I will be winding down pretty fast even for a Friday night. Getting up between 4am - 5am does that to an ex-night person. I still got my morning bike ride in this morning, 26 miles total as I headed toward Tombstone out Charleston Rd. It's been a good day but a pretty quiet day.

Basset Hound vs The Bulldog

I was going to take the day off from riding this morning and hike either Brown Canyon or the San Pedro River. These photos are from late this afternoon but this morning the smell of smoke was in the air, a strong smell. I knew then why my watch had been pinging me with Air Quality Alerts ... they were having a controlled burn this morning. All riding and hiking would wait another day. I think I have over 30 photos today, from last night after my blog post to this afternoon. I realized something last night when downloading photos, too many of my blog photos recently were of the hounds and the dog sleeping. That will change as of this post.

The Crate vs The Backyard


We were up before the crack of dawn as usual. Perfect weather. The hounds and the dog assumed their breakfast table positions as I made coffee. Same routine as always, only today I took all the photos with my iPhone and left the Nikon D3500 on the counter. You are looking towards Bisbee to the southwest of the patio. I could tell before the first drop of the dark roast Columbian coffee that today was going to be a good day ... it was.

No Drama Today

I wrote the title before I started this post. Now the only drama is the new Blogger design icons for images. The plus and minus signs to increase or decrease image size isn't there. They now have a small picture inside a bigger screen ... I clicked that by accident and saw the choices with image size. Also Blogger loaded all the photos in reverse !!!!! I am not going to take the time to load them one at a time in the order I want. I guess you will have to live with what is shown and the verbiage will not go with the image. Really, I was in a good mood today until I saw how the images were loaded.

New Blog URL


Some of you already know about this new blog url. Instead of 'deactivating" the blog where I could bring it back after making some changes, I hit the button called "permanently delete", where you don't get it back. So I started this new blog with an appropriate url "bhoundsandadog" instead of the old "bhounds3". I am slowly getting this blog designed the same as the old one. Before deleting the blog I did download all the files. Noticed when I imported that file to this blog it was missing pages, comments and the first four years when I talked mostly about RVs.

I Started A Fire - Rambling Involved

I heard a bark right after Friday's breakfast and when I glanced in that direction Heidi had jumped slightly doing a 360° turn into Walter wanting to play. Maybe her joint supplements are helping. It was quite a surprise to see so early in the morning. Not a lot of blogging stuff happened Friday but I did my best to make some people angry, that are not blog worthy. Ah, maybe a sentence or two about that later.

Hounds Enjoy Cooler Temps


A little after 6am you could still see the residue from the smoky skies in the west. That would only get worse by 4pm as later photos show. That did not keep Walter and Henry from starting their day with their normal energy. They eat early, rest a little and then get right to it in the playing department.
