In 2009

In October of 2009 Lynne & I left for our first trip in our 1989 Ford Van Conversion Camper. We stopped at lake Tahoe the first night. We then picked up highway 50 and continued east until we got to Eastern Colorado. From their we picked up highway 36 and went to Hiawatha, KS. We arrived on Friday to find our Auntie Em in the hospital. She passed away Sunday Morning. She is missed by all who knew her. We stayed in Hiawatha and Robinson for about 3 weeks helping out with details.

We left Hiawatha and visited family in Kansas City, Arkansas City, Hot springs Village AR, Texas and then started home. We went about 5600 miles in 60 days and had a great time.

We left Home Sunday about 12:30 and headed to Tahoe on RT 50. We stayed at Nevada Beach and headed of on RT 50 across Nevada. Monday night we are in Ely with a low of 33 expected. Burrr.

Dog Daze




Welcome to Dog Daze

I am Bloooo the lovable aussie shepherd and my yard mate is Ruffy a springer spaniel/aussie young lady. We are staying with Tori this week at her place in Santa Clara. Tori is a lovable old girl, but is sometimes a little cranky. We have arranged to have Ed & Lynne fix our meals and keep the lawn picked up. Me and Ruffy usually spend our time in aptos where the weather is much cooler. Staying here in Santa Clara is much warmer than we care for.


As you can see we spend a lot of valuble time walking in circles. We mostly learned this from Len, our caretaker. Ed has showed us how to hone this into a perfect lifestyle.


Once in a while we get confused and forget who is leading who. Ed is not much help in correcting this particular problem.


Pssst if you see my pup mom & pup dad tell them to come back soon we really miss them



If you don't see them then call the Aussie Rescue folks I think they can set us free.





Oh Boy she is home at last I missed her all day, ooooppps don"t let my real pup mom see this she will disown all four leggs of me

Thanks for stoppin in to see us catch ya real soon

Tori, Ruffy & Bloooo
