Critter Cooler

Every Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends for the past 37 years Hermosa Beach holds their Fiesta Hermosa. It is a very large arts and crafts fair that has rides for the kids, a beer garden for the adults, and great food and music for everyone. I enjoy bringing Buddy there, because it is good training for him in that there are a ton of other people, scads of dogs and a bunch of skateboards. Buddy seems to enjoy it for all the attention he gets, and he really does seem to be in his element there.

One advantage of the beach communities is that people do think about and care for their four legged friends. All along The Strand and in the fair area there are water stations set up so the dogs can get a refreshment break. My picture of the day for day 249 is of Buddy taking advantage of a water station put up by one of the exhibitors.

Twenty some odd years ago I was riding out to Hermosa Beach to meet my then wife at our favorite watering hole for lunch. Soon after being seated, this guy I recognized vaguely came up to talk. In a nutshell, he had a Harley-Davidson Sportster and wanted to know where I went to have work done on my bike. I told him I did all my own work. He told us a story of woe, having brought his bike into a local shop that was notorious for doing crappy work. To make a long story short, I gave him my address and told him to stop by and I would teach him to work on his own bike.

My photo of the day for day 248 is of Phil, his wife and I, who after 20 plus years have remained friends and go on occasional bike rides together. It is true, you do meet the nicest people on a Harley-Davidson.

Getting to know you

Since I do travel a lot, it was decided that Buddy and my dad should get to know each other a little better. Yesterday, we went over to my dad’s and Buddy hung out for a while, then I let my dad take Buddy for a walk. Buddy is a pretty perceptive little guy and he is a quick learner, all we have to do is get my dad comfortable with handling the leash and issuing basic commands. Luckily, Buddy already knows he is supposed to sit at corners, so this should not take long.

My photo of the day for day 247 is of my dad and Buddy midway through their 30 minute walk. Both look rather satisfied, don’t you think?
