For the 4th of July weekend, I went down to the beach. After getting Hope, Prada, and Louie set-up, I decided to go out for a walk. I had walked past the pier where the beach becomes private. I happened to see a huge group of seagulls sitting there. Some were watching me, while others watched the waves roll in.
As I got closer though, they flew away. Much to my amazement, they were sitting on sand dollars! Lots and lots of sand dollars. I immediately rushed over to pick them up. I reached down to pick the first one up and it immediately broke apart. So, I went for another one. The same thing happened. With so many around me, I wasn't worried...yet. I decided to dig into the sand around the next one and pick it up that way, but this also produced a broken sand dollar.
That's when I realized that the hundreds of sand dollars that the seagulls were sitting on/around, weren't actually sand dollars. Nope. Not at all. Not even close. The perfectly white, round, little lines making it look just like a sand dollar was seagull poop. Yup. How embarrassing. The seagull poop has seeped a little into the sand and was a perfect match for a sand dollar. I don't know which is worse: thinking that seagull poop was a sand dollar or it taking me multiple attempts to figure it out. You Live, You Learn.
This is the first Tuesday in July which means that Tune-riffic Tuesday will focus on a new Artist! This month, I have decided to focus on an artist that has a different sound from all of my other Tune-riffic Tuesday's. I really like their music. I love the beats, their voice, the sounds, the lyrics, and the different-ness but classy-ness they bring to the table.
This month Tune-riffic Tuesday will focus on..... Bitter:Sweet. Today's song is "The Bomb." You may recognize tune/song because it was the theme song for the television show "Lipstick Jungle." (Which, by the way, I LOVED and think it should still be on the air...) Their sound, to me, oozes New York exclusive apartment party. Their music has also been featured in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada."
Well, I'm packing!!! Getting ready to head to the beach for the 4th of July! Hope, Prada, and Louie see the luggage coming out, and they are getting excited. Hopefully, it won't be too hot for them. More details to come. You Live, You Learn.
Welcome to The Water Bowl Blog! This blog is about my life as it pertains to my three dogs (Hope, Prada, and Louie), my one fish (Dr. Feel), my attempts at cooking, and a little bit about my life. Feel free to add comments and recommend blogs that you think I would enjoy.
Hope goes by the name of Hope (that is whenever she can hear you). She is almost deaf and blind but she is still a wonderful dog. However, her condition has resulted in me having to buy more windex to clean the floor to ceiling windows which she always mistakes as an open door. Bless her heart.
Prada also goes by the name of Girl. She's suppose to be a Long-Haired Chihuahua, but she has a little bit of a weight problem and is now almost the size of a Boston Terrier.
Louie also goes by the name of Mister. He and Prada are brother and sister. He, like his sister, is almost three years old. However, he still hasn't masterd the art of peeing on things besides himself. He goes to raise his leg up but for some reason always does a hand-stand, which results on him peeing on himself...all the time.
Dr. Feel is a Beta Fish. I've had him for almost a year. He doesn't do much but swim around, but that's alright with me.
