Maui at the Hydro Treadmill…go Maui go

Here’s my boy, Mau Mau (aka The Mauster or Mr. Pencil) on A Well Adjusted Pet‘s new hydro treadmill at the Rex Center in Pacifica, CA. Woo Hoo. Go Mau Go. The barking in the background is Jack Jack shouting words of encouragement. Mauster loved the hydro treadmill, and was crazy wild and invigorated the rest of the day. It’s so therapeutic for my old boy plus helps with his waistline. And yes, I did call him “Bubble Butt” in one of the videos, but hey he called me that name first and I wasn’t even in the water.

Good Lord

I forgot how to sign into my blog. Geez. This has taken an inordinate amount of time to get this far.

So, I’m finally better. Better than what? A dead skunk on the side of the road, that’s what.

I’m spending my free time at the board and care visiting my buddies Alex and Frank. Here’s a photo of them taken with my phone’s crappy camera.

Alex has ALS and Frank is 91, though I can’t seem to remember that and made some remark today about him being 92. He bellowed at me, “Do I look like I’m 92?”

“No, no,” I just can’t remember I stammered. “You look 75. You look younger than Mel.” (Mel is the trustee of Frank’s estate.) “Doesn’t Frank look younger than Mel?” I asked Alex, dragging him into my misstep in an effort to extricate myself.

Alex hem hawed around, so Frank bellowed some more at me. “Now look, you’ve put Alex on the spot.”

Alex finally said, ‘Well, I’m used to looking at you, Frank.” Frank seemed satisfied with Alex’s answer though it made no sense at all. And so, we moved onto other topics like where was the mail?

Pacifica (De)construction

The city is redoing a bunch of the sewer laterals at private residences here in Pacifica. This is where they store they equipment. I feel like the construction company’s mother. “Go over there and pick that fence up right NOW!” Dufuses.

Poppies in the Cactus Garden

This is the front cactus garden. Poppies are going wild. We let them bloom and then when they turn scraggly, we pull them. They reseed and come back the next year by themselves. That’s not my house in the background. Mine is behind the fence, and I like it that way, as you can imagine. More privacy. Less road noise.

Sunset in Pacifica

Photo from last night. While I was walking the beach trail earlier in the day, I saw a whale spouting just offshore. He seemed to come up more out of the water than usual, and I could see his shiny black back.

The Hairy Cactus

No, I cannot remember his real plant name. I thought he was looking especially dapper today. Visitors often try to pet him. He is a cactus. He has stickers, and he will use them. A pretty boy with thorns.
